First, I have a dress in mind from David's Bridal - long, halter top, and of course very tangerine. I am going with them because I cannot for the life of me find an appropriately colored and styled dress anywhere else! Any suggestions? Must be tangerine of course, and I would prefer halter top or strapless. My second question (which really goes with the first!) is: shoes! What color would match a tangerine dress, aside from going with tangerine colored shoes (which isn't necessarily a no, as long as they are cute of course!). I of course an trying to keep things on the cheaper side, preferably under $300 for the dress and $100 for the shoes? Thanks so much! I love your site - I've read it for years and have found some great items! -Diana"
Hey, Diana, Janetor here! Hmmm, the internet is full of variations on "tangerine," with some more orange, and some peach/creamsicle shades. I've rounded up six dresses, and as for shoes, black would look a little Halloween-y. Gold or silver would work just fine, but I think a nice sky or china blue would be a gorgeous pop of color! Enjoy the wedding, and tell your little sister we said "Congratulations!"
