Personal Shopper: What should Emma wear with her plum guest dress?

Emma writes: Hi Outblush! I can't decide if I'm more ecstatic that I finally have something worth submitting a personal shopper request for or frustrated that I haven't been able to find the perfect thing already. I was invited to my boyfriend's sister's wedding in September as his plus one, and I want to make a good impression since it's the first time I'll be meeting pretty much everyone. I scored a fabulous dress in J.Crew's final sale, but now I'm at a loss for jewelry to wear with it. I'm thinking that metallics are the way to go, and I already have a pair of comfortable (amazing!) bronze pumps that I can wear. Now I just need a fabulous necklace and maybe a bracelet and/or earrings and clutch to go with. I'd like to stay under $100 for everything. Thank you!!!

So many beautiful options!!! First off, great dress. That layered look is about as flattering as it gets. And what a sensational color. Lucky for you, awesome accessories aren't too hard to come by. It's all in the color coordination. And clearly, I couldn't decide which was going to work best. So you and the readers get to choose your fate. Have fun at the wedding! Please send video of the following dances: Funky Chicken, Electric Slide and any choreographed bride/groom dances. <3 - Magzilla

Nice to see my particular vote in the lead. I thought it provided a nice contrast. The blue and purple are too matchy matchy, in my opinion.
