Laura writes: "I am marrying my cousin (Note: we all had about the same cardiac reaction at this point) - meaning that by the powers vested in me, I am performing the wedding ceremony for him and his lovely fiancée. To jive with the wedding color palette, and to remain unobtrusive, I am wearing this navy blue dress. Due to the simplicity of my dress, I need some accessories that add a little interest without commanding too much attention - it's not my big day, but I will be speaking in front of 150 people and don't want to ruin the wedding by looking homely. I'm thinking nude shoes and gold accessories, but am open to suggestions. I would like to keep costs to $100 or less per item, but am willing to pay more for pieces that might work with other outfits. Thanks for any guidance you may have!"
I, Magzilla, decided to take on the task of accessorizing the big day. I gave you a nude and gold option, but branched out and clearly didn't stop branching. So take your pick. It's hard to mess up a dress like that. Unless of course you wore a veil. That would be "messing it up" big time.
Magzilla here: When I'm not busy eating my way to the bottom of a ginger candy bag, I'm tweezing my eyebrows. I prefer the hardcore body modification scene but can also appreciate a ruffle or bow when I see one. Beauty and barrels of maternity/kid crap are my specialties. When you need help finding the right shade of eyeliner to match that new shade of "I haven't slept in days" tint your skin gets after a baby or four, call on me. Loudly.
