Dress 2 accessories

Yes, I am still undecided on the dress. But I've decided that, if I go with Dress 2, I'll be going with the ivory/gold combination, and mixed metal jewelry to make sure I match both the dress and my ring, and that I don't spend a lot of money on strictly yellow gold jewelry that I won't ever wear again!

14K Gold Filigree Chandelier Earring from Europa Jewelers

I think gold chandelier earrings will be what I end up with, since they should nicely reflect the lace pattern on the dress, the semi-South Asian look I'm going for (Indian and Pakistani bridal jewelry certainly inspired this trend!), and I just think they look prettier in gold than in silver. ;) I did find the two-tone earrings, which is great in case I decide I want to go that route, but I actually like the pair in the middle (the cheapest ones! HOORAY!) the most.

Amrita Singh India Bangle Set (of 36), $38 each at Gilt Groupe ($90 retail)

I actually just bought these from the Gilt Groupe yesterday, with the plan of mixing and matching a few from each set on each wrist. Hopefully they'll work out!

Unfortunately, none of these shoes are available in my size (and at least two of them are way too expensive). But they do reflect what I want, quite accurately: gold, strappy, and with a high heel (approximately 4 to 4½ inches). At least I know what I'm looking for now.

I do have a pair of shoes at home already (FREE WEDDING SHOES!!) that might work with the dress... I haven't taken a picture of them yet but they are olive green with gold threading, super strappy, and have gold, cream, and green-colored embroidery on the top strap (they are sort of like T-strap sandals). The heel is a little on the short side (maybe 3 inches?), but I could live with that if it's a shoe I don't have to pay for... if I ultimately like them with the dress. My bigger concern than the heel height is comfort... I've never worn them for more than a short evening out and I'm not sure they'd be functional for dancing all night. I'd better test them out first!
