So we got invited to someone else’s black tie wedding. Fiance helped me pick out an ensemble, but I’m not sure if it goes together. What do you think? The dress looks black, but it’s actually really dark navy. I wish it was black. I am worried that the lace/sparkle is too much? (I also got a clutch to match the shoes)

@Crazyhair: That is a lovely dress. How does it fit you? If the wedding is a formal/semi-formal event then it is perfect. I really can’t see the sparkle on the lace, so it shouldn’t be too obvious. Not sure if you need a necklace with the lace around the neck.

I think it looks gorgeous! Personally, because I have annoyingly large boobs, that dress would look way too low on me, but if it fits you well then awesome! 🙂 I absolutely adore it!

the dress fits perfectly thank goodness. But I am a lot shorter than the model! (and I have small boobs, so that’s a non issue) Ha.
There actually isn’t sparkle on the lace, I just meant the shoes are sparkly. I wasn’t sure if that fit well with the lacey dress, and the pearly-ish necklace.
Not sure if it’s too many textures going on at once. 🙂

Pretty dress and shoes, but i’d skip the necklace. It doesn’t seem quite right for the dress. If you need to wear one, someting simple would be better (or nothing at all).

I think you should totally buy that necklace because it is gorgeous but not for this outfit. the dress is super pretty, maybe just wear some nice stud earrings and a cocktail ring or a thin bracelet? I think the neckline is detailed enough without the necklace. or maybe a simple pendant would work. either way, you’ll look great!

@Crazyhair: Love the dress, but I think you need to go with either the necklace or the shoes. Not both though, because they don’t match and it might look kinda weird.

@Crazyhair: Love the dress and love the necklace, but not together. Could you go with a simple strand of pearls instead? I think the combination of the lace and the statement necklace is a bit too much.
Oh, and the shoes are really pretty! I love champagne with dark navy.

Sounds like the necklace is out. I had a feeling it might be. (although I think I might keep it anyways!)
What if I nixed the necklace and wore these instead:

i agree with PPs that the necklace would be too much. But i think those earrings will look great!

I love that dress! & The earrings are beautiful! I’m not sure if they go with the shoes, though. Partly because of the texture but also because the shoes look silvery and the earrings are gold. I’d go for a basic patent heel with that dress instead.

@Crazyhair: I like the long earrings instead of the necklace. I thin it all comes together very nicely 🙂
