Hi,

I posted this in the wardrobe forum but didn't receive any response. So I thought I'd post this here since it's jewelry related:

My hubby just bought me a dress from Agnes B that I need help on accessorizing.

http://usa.agnesb.com/en/shopping_online/product/women/dresses/robe-new-voilier-1/0000

It's kinda hard to tell from the pics but the dress fits snugly on top and hits right above knee on me. Since it's a wide neck/semi boat neck, I figure a long layered necklace would go with it. However, I can't seem to find a suitable piece. Should i just ditch the necklace and go with a nice bracelet?

Any help would be much appreciated! :smile:

Thanks for the suggestion! Where would you recommend I get the bracelets? Sorry, but I don't normally wear a lot of jewelry so I am clueless as to how accessorize! :smile:

a cuff would be interesting. a necklace that mirrors the neckline. or earrings. just nothing too delicate. it requires a chunkier sort of piece to balance out the print.

Hi all, I'm open to costume jewelry but prefer rose gold tone or gold to silver. I also prefer classic pieces that I can match easily with other outfits. I've looked at jewelry on shopbop and I like the following:

I love cuffs but unfortunately they don't fit me as i have very small wrists and forearms. I think Chanel jewelry are classic and elegant, however, I'm not too keen on paying so much for costume jewelry.

I really like this Bvlgari bracelet and am seriously considering to buy this to layer it with other pieces or a watch -

Any thoughts and opinions? Thanks!

I think some chunky bracelets (or a single bracelet) would look great with this dress. I'd leave the neckline alone. I really think this dress calls for silver, even though that's not your preference. The colors in this dress just beg for silver...

I agree with the above statement. I don't think gold would be very good with this, silvertone would look much better.
