    @BeckyS0:  I;d actually go without the necklace, personally. I have a dress with almost the exact same neckline, and it just didnt seem to work with a necklace. Just my .02. 

    Earrings and a bracelet would be just enough!

    I think, what with the dots, the purple, the big crinoline, the bright shoes, etc, that a necklace is just too much. It’s lovely as is!

    @crayfish:  +1

    OP, I think you run the risk of looking too costume-y when you start adding so many accessories. I say, no necklace, but earrings and a bracelet will look great.

    @BeckyS0:  I think it looks nice with the pearls and without!  But if you’re a fashionista, I’d go for the new reverse necklace trend!  Most girls won’t be “on” to that trend yet and you can be one of the first.  If that’s your shtick.  If not, the pearls are just lovely too!

    Your dress is adorable and I love the purple petticoat!    You could either go with the small pearl choker if you want to be very 50s retro, but I think that going without will be the best because you’ve got so much in your shoes/petticoat/sash (but I’m a simple person who avoids bling).  Don’t do a long reverse necklace.   That is more of a 20s/30s glam look than a 50s look.

    @Blonde17Jess:  Since you brought up lariats, I actually think that would normally look lovely with her dress (esp. since it has that deep v). However, with all of the coloured accessories, it seems too OTT.

    But there is something so Breakfast-at-Tiffany’s-glamorous about the lariat look!

    @BeckyS0:  I love those pearls on you!  I wear exactly the same kind every day!
