I have a dress that I bought on a whim because it fit nicely and would make a cute holiday dress. It is patterned in red, black, and beige in a geometric sort of way, and it has 3/4 sleeves and a v-neck. It is roughly knee-length on me, perhaps a bit below the knee since I am very short.
My dilemma is that I have no earthly idea how to accessorize outfits. I assume I should wear a necklace, yes? But I don’t quite know what styles I should be looking for. Chokers are out, as I think they make my neck look, well, weird. Stubby. And nobody wants a stubby neck. Do I need a pendant? A funky, outrageous thingy? A subtle silver chain-type deal that ends in a Y shape? HELP.
And shoes. I know many people are passionate about shoes and I am not one of them and am therefore totally out of my element. I think since I am very short, I probably need some kind of heel, but I’m not particularly good at walking in heels so maybe err on the short-heeled side?
My shoe criteria:
– Can have a heel, and I am better with wedge-type chunky heels than I am with pointy stiletto-type heels
– Should probably be black?
– My feet are size 7 for the most part, but if I am not wearing socks sometimes I can get away with a 6.5
Anything else I should be thinking of? A scarf-y type jacket shawl thing? I will probably be wearing this in the winter in Idaho, so take that as you will.
Price is only sort of an issue; I am naturally frugal so deals excite me, and I am not terribly interested in spending $100+ on one pair of shoes ($50 would be high-ish but okay, $75 is pushing it) unless they are the most magical amazing things you have ever seen in your life. I don’t really have a basis for comparison on jewelry, so use your best judgment.
I have a few weeks to get this stuff, so links to specific products are very welcome, but please use TinyUrl if they are super long. Thanks, guys! I totally owe you one.
