    Help me accessorize (holiday party)

    Advertisements
    Ok so I waited until the last minute to find something for my DH's squadron Holiday/Christmas party. It's next weekend at a castle here in Germany. I want to look really nice for this because a) I have always been to shy to attend these with him in the past and b) many of these people haven't seen me since I was 90 lbs heavier. Soo... after shopping downtown today I came back with this:






    These are the shoes I will be wearing:


    I will be wearing black tights too. I was thinking of adding a cardigan of some sort because it's cold and I need more than just that top. What color? More black? The top I have is a beige-pink if you can't tell.

    Where I really need help is the jewelry/accessories. I don't know how to add "final touches" to an outfit Give me links to examples of things you think would go well with what I am wearing. I can't order anything online because nothing would get here in time, but I can look in the stores here for things that are similar.

    Please help!

    Oooh I have the perfect necklace for that... its like a ribbon tie in the back, and the front is several strands of black beads, one is pearls... hard to explain. Will try to find a lookalike!





    Have you ever thought about what protects our hearts? / Just a cage of rib bones and other various parts /
    So it's fairly simple to cut right through the mess / And stop the muscle that makes us confess / And we are so fragile /
    And our cracking bones make noise / And we are just breakable, breakable, breakable girls and boys.

    Hot damn girl, that's an awesome outfit.

    That neckline begs for a necklace.
    Love God. All else can be figured out later.

    Cute!

    Flower Pearl Necklace - Necklaces - Jewellery - Topshop USA
    Cute if ya like flowers

    Satin Bow & Bead Necklace in Gunmetal - New Items
    This is more what I was thinking of... but it's pretty expensive!

    Are you wearing hair up or down? I think you should find a cute large stud to match whatever necklace you pick out, nothing too big and dangly.

    All just my amateur opinion!

    If you add a cardigan, I would definitely go with red. Perfect for the holidays, and I love the way red looks with cream and black....

    Cute outfit, and those shoes are adorable!!!

    I like the last one a lot. I can't order anything online, but I am going to go shop around a bit tomorrow and see if I can find anything that looks similar to anything posted. So blacks would be best for jewelry?

    Well my top isn't really cream, it has a pink undertone, which makes me think red wouldn't look great with it. So I don't know what other color besides black to wear. Grey, maybe?

    red would still work it would be so christmas-y haha, or maybe like gold or silver, or black with a touch of that teal? idk its hard to see the pink so maybe the red wouldnt work but i don' think it'd be overbearing. it is a cute outfit and i like her necklace ideas . black would look great and classy and elegant
