YOU Be the Stylist: What should Zara accessorize her brown bridesmaids dress with?

Sometimes, we get a Personal Shopper request that gets us so intrigued, we find it impossible to narrow down our options. We decided, therefore, that our beloved readers should help, since you're all as fashion-obsessed as we are. Introducing.... YOU Be the Stylist: We're faced with a reader who can't decide what to pair with a piece of clothing they've purchased. Neither can we. We'll let you vote.

Zara wrote, "Hi Outblush! I love your site! I found you through my brother's Uncrate bookmark a few years ago and have checked in every day since! I'm a bridesmaid in a wedding the first weekend in October and I'm trying to figure out how to accessorize my dress. I don't have a picture of it, but it's a brown, flowy, floor-length dress with an empire waist, a fairly deep v-neck and a glitzy silver brooch under the bust. I'm really having a hard time figuring out what shoes to wear, as I am taller than most of the other bridesmaids. I think I do want a heel, but not too high so I don't tower over the bridesmaids and my boyfriend, the best man. I also am looking for some sort of clutch for the night, to carry my camera, touch-up makeup and other things to help out the bride. I'm not sure what colours and styles to get, and I'm also on a budget, so the cheaper the better! Thanks for your help, Zara"

Thanks Outblush! I'm probably going to go with the majority and pick #1. Love the colours and the clutch is too cute!
