Personal Shopper: Laura's Last Minute LBD Gets Livened Up

Laura writes: "Hello Outblush! In two weeks, I'll be attending/working a fancy-schmacy charity event. Of course, I was asked to go at the last minute, which makes getting an outfit together for this event all the more difficult! All the women in my department working this event are wearing black (yawn) so I guess I have to, too. I ordered this very pretty dress from eShakti, but I'd love to make it more interesting. Now, this is a work event, so while the safe route would be to accessorize with a strand of pearls, pearl earrings and low, black heels ( I *am* working & have to be able to walk -- unfortunately, this night is not about me sipping champagne and looking pretty) -- it's also really boring. So, any suggestions for work-appropriate accessories that A) will allow me to do all the running around I need to do and B) will make me feel gorgeous? My max budget is $150. I'm not a fan of bracelets. But I do like big statement jewelry. Thanks! Laura"
