Personal Shopper: Accessorizing a Tadashi Shoji Dress for a Military Ball

"Dear Outblush,
I have a personal shopper request. I have a military ball coming up in 7 weeks (Feb 22nd) and while I've already purchased the perfect gown, I for the life of me cannot figure out what type of accessories to wear with it! I have bought a Tadashi Shoji gown and need a necklace, earrings and possibly ring and bracelet as well. I will be wearing black suede peep toes. While I would prefer something on the inexpensive side, I will spend up to $50ish for everything. I DO NOT like the color red, so please don't suggest that! I live in Texas, so if the item isn't available near me, I will need at least a few days to order it. Hope I gave you enough time to work your magic!!!
Thank you!!!"

Budget? Tiny. Style possibilities? Endless. This gorgeous dress attracts enough attention on its own, so I elected to keep the accessories in the same color scheme so as to complement, not compete, with it. The neckline of this Tadashi Shoji gown wouldn't work well with a necklace, so I've brought you a selection of hair accessories, earrings, rings, and bracelets. Enjoy, and have fun at the ball, Cinderella!
XOXO, Janetor

That is amazing!! I knew you would be able to come up with the perfect accessories for me. I am stuck now between #'s 7 and 8. I love them both. Thank you so much for being so quick! Just one more reason why I love Outblush so much!
