We just received such a nice email from our reader Kimberly! She wrote, “I’m not sure if this is up your alley, but after seeing your great week-long Zoe Effect feature, I thought I might as well ask. I’m attending an evening wedding, and have bought this gorgeous dress (above). I’m wondering if you (or the readers) have any idea how to style it. The wedding is in November, but is in Texas, so it won’t be too cold. Any ideas? Thanks so much, LOVE the site!!”
This green flutter sleeve Robert Rodriguez dress is simply stunning. The chic thing to do these days is to dress in a mix of high and low price points. The dress has a price tag of $250, which was a steal from its retail value of $418, and we have paired it with some affordable, yet evening wedding appropriate, shoes and accessories.
To keep the dress as the focal point, I suggest pairing it with only two additional colors, black and gold. The black patent shoes match the belt and have just enough interest so that they do not compete with the dress. The platform on these woven peep-toe pumps is AMAZING and the square toe is just so cool and unexpected!!!
I went with simple accessories that are sort of a medium between shiny and mesh gold. I would avoid a necklace because there is no need to distract from the simple and beautiful neckline on this dress. I found the clutch at Endless.com and I am addicted to it for a couple of reasons. First, it is a wristlet so you do not have to hold it the entire night, and two, I love the chain strap that is reminiscent of the popular Chanel handbags. After the wedding, pair it with a tee, jeans, and a blazer for a night out with the girls. Hope you have an amazing time at the wedding, Kimberly and we know you are going to look beautiful in that dress!
