I have picked my dress and am working on my accessories. Only, the question is… is it too much together??
I love Justin Alexander’s tea length dress, #8465 and would LOVE to wear blue shoes with it.
Also, I have picked out a birdcage veil with a little hat… it’s similar to the picture I’m posting here except cuter 🙂 …can you tell I’m digging on the 50’s look 😉 Then, I have some little sheer wrist length gloves and would like to also get a bolero to cover up my shoulders some. Either this one I’m posting here that I found on Etsy or a simple one made of either organza or silk… The jewelry I am thinking of is very simple: a one stranded pearl and crystal necklace with some matching dangle earrings..
Does this sound like too much going on?
It’s hard to tell in this picture, but this dress is supposed to be tea length…
Also, the shoes in this picture came out a little sea foam green looking with the lighting but it’s supposed to be a Tiffany blue color…

I would definitely skip the gloves, and I would probably skip the bolero too. The dress is so beautiful that I wouldn’t want to cover any of it up! And maybe it’s just my computer, but those shoes look like a seafoam green color, not blue.

Whoops, yeah the shoes are leather and kinda change in different light. 🙁 Here they look a little sea foamy green… they’re supposed to be a Tiffany color blue. 🙂

The dress is beautiful and i don’t think you should distract from it too much. To me the shoes are too heavy for the delicate dress-a bit frumpy. I would simplify the headpiece a little, wear earrings but not a necklace, and choose between the gloves and bolero. I would look for shoes more like this:

I think it might be a little too overaccessorized. I would say to skip the bolero and the gloves.

I am not a fan of the birdcage veil and gloves.

i think the bolero and gloves should go…or keep the gloves and simplify/eliminate the veil, if you are really digging the gloves. The bolero takes away from the BEAUTIFUL dress.
i like the first two shoe options cakegal chose

I say skip the gloves and bolero. The shoes, dress and birdcage go well together!

I would skip either the gloves or the bolero, and I think the shoes are too casual for the dress.
