Curious, While I love your first outfit I donít really like the magenta shoes with it- sorry!

Of your wedding outfits posted I'd prefer the options with the cardi- it looks lovely with this dress & more feminine IMO.

The black cardi shrug & silver shoes sound nice as well Have fun

i agree with dream..i love the color of the cardi and the colors in the shirt together a lot! i think it would look really nice with a pair of slacks that compliment both the color of the cardi and the color of the shirt, like a khaki or grey like dream suggested.

good look, marcj!

So, I didn't get a chance to come back for round 2

I wound up nixing the silver shoes b/c I decided I bought them b/c they were the best I could find and not something I was swooning over. They're in the return pile. I went for the romantic look after all. I thought it captured the spirit of the wedding better. It was a pretty casual affair. I actually did think about the grass, Softgrey :p Most of it was deck so I was okay, but I switched to flip-flops half-way through, anyway As did most everyone for the hard-core partying

This is what I wound up wearing. I brought my black cardi shrug, but I didn't wind up needing it. Yay!! One necklace and bracelet were a gift from the bride. I layered another longer pearl necklace w/ it & I also had a beautiful white rose corsage w/ lavendar & rosemary sprigs pinned to my dress. It was so fun & beautiful and the dress was a big hit .

Had a great time!! Thanks for everyone's advice!

Thanks everyone!

I think I will wear the shirt and cardigan with some grey Marni trousers and perhaps some plain lather sandals.

just found this thread-so fun!!

Going back to the first page-softie, definately the round toes, and it's not just because I own the same shoes!! That other shoe just doesn't frame the dress as nicely as the postemistress shoes.

Curious, your posts are so cute! First of all, LOVE that balenciaga dress, the shape and color are superb. Is it vintage? I think you made a wise decision, generally i preferred the t-bar because they were a bit more delicate and fit in nicely with the dress. That is such a great dress because it can be dressed up or down, i'm loving it. As for the other camel combo, love the outfit but I agree, something about that particular color of the shoe doesn't quite fit, but the idea behind it is excellent. Can't wait to contribute to this thread, which I so will.

Thanks Soft, Meg & Luna

Meg, I'm not sure when the dress came out. It was a Yoox purchase so I'm assuming it's off season, but I don't know if that qualifies as vintage. I love it, too!! I plan to work it with a blazer as suggested at a later date

Maybe post a picture without the belt for comparison? Looks cool, but it seems a bit high to me. I could be crazy, though.
