- Wedding: February 2012
I’m throwing together a super quick JOP ceremony for next month (2/18). For multiple reasons (parents only, JOP, parlor of B&B), I decided I wanted a short or tea length dress, even though it’s winter. That was confirmed at the 6 bridal shops I went to as I really disliked all of the long gowns (no matter the silhouette), but what I could find in short dresses, I liked (minus the price tags!).
Then I found this number at a ginormous (and slightly sketchy) formal wear store in the mall:
It’s hard to tell, but there is a black bow with a small blingy brooch underneath my hand.
I am in love with it! It definitely has a summer-y feel to it though, and I want to winter-fy it.
My ideas so far are a faux fur stole/bolero and/or white gloves. Do you think I and this dress could pull one or both of those off?
Also – shoe ideas? I’m thinking red pumps, but don’t want to throw too many “interesting” accessories in there and end up looking tacky.
I’m mainly concerned with stuff matching the black belt/bow (which is attached to the dress pretty good and not removable).
Thanks in advance!
