I hate and suck at shopping and my dress finally arrived yesterday so I can FINALLY buy my shoes and purse!
Here’s the dress, and below it is the cape I bought (it is maribou)
I also have some pretty big/blingy chandellier earrings, so I dont think I need a necklace or more jewlery.
But I need help with a purse!! Would you go with a clutch or a cross-body? White? Taupe? One of the colors from my bouquet (basically the dress colors plus a bit of bright blue) HELP!
Im also on the prowl for flats to wear that are comfortable and cute and not white, coming up dry there as well…
man I wish I liked shopping!

@bkrocks13: i say clutch. have you thought about getting one custom made? i just had my BM’s clutches made through ModDotTextiles on Etsy and they are freaking PHENOMENAL.
flats-wise, my absolute favorites are Steve Madden’s flats.

I would go clutch. Either blue/green or maybe sparkly beige? If I can find a pic of something ill post it.

@bkrocks13: Just wanted to say. Amazing dress. I love it.
I’ve always wanted a bag with Peacock feathers on it so I might go with something like this
Or a pretty spangly clutch like this
Maybe not very bridal. But pretty and re-useable!
Then I found and added these….because they are cute.!

@LilLis: i love the peacock feathers too but FI is very anti peacock for whatever reason (like- in all things.) He has basically no opinions about anything wedding related except for a few specific things he doesnt like so ijm not gonna mess with him about it ha

@bkrocks13: To that all I can say in response is Booo
There must be other cute ideas though, your dress lends itself to something a little bit different.

I like the idea of a neutral shoe or a bright blue one
these ones are cute too:
I think a clutch – not sure on the details of your ceremony/reception, but how much stuff will you need, I don’t think a cross-body bag really screams wedding
I would get a clutch in the same tone as the shoes that was very plain looking (not much bling or pattern).
I absolutely LOVE your dress and you don’t want the accessories to take away from it’s beauty – so stay with simple!
I’d also consider your blingy earrings into the mix, if they have any colour- whether they’re gold or silver.

I love all of these ideas! The earrings are silver/rhinestone bling, but I think I could still get away with gold if I wanted to. One of my besties is voting for gold shoes and a gold purse- what do yall think? I am so so so so SO bad at this stuff. I need someone to style everything for me ha

@Lakelyn: you are incredible, that is basically the exact color of the blue in my dress ha! Good eye!! I googled for 30 mins last night looking for slate blue shoes to no avail. I suck at this.

I’d suggest sparkly champagne/beige shoes to match the top part of your dress (and not compete with the gorgeous colors on the bottom of your dress)
And a blue/green/teal sequin clutch or wristlet:
