    That's gorgeous! Black or gold strappy sandals would look gorgeous, and maybe a bolero type top, rather than a pashmina? You can get ones in gorgeous delicate threads.

    My word, that's pretty! Maybe pick out one of those colours in the embroidery for a little jacket. You say it is in December so you will need to keep warm for the photos if they are going to be outside!

    Or Gold for the sandals if you wanted something less dark than the black?

    I would wear black, keep it simple then the attention heads to the detailed area.

    Dress is gorgeous BTW x

    Looked at some fabulous Christian Louboutin but at over a thousand pounds a pair I thought they might be just out of budget lol.

    They've got a great pair of black patent peep toes in Next at the mo, and they're only £25! They'd look lovely.

    Although it'll be chilly so you may need to wear flesh coloured tights.

    Think it depends on comfort also, do you want your day spoiled feeling like your feet are dying cause of sandals? I'd go for some classic simple black heels with a black clutch, perhaps with a little gold detail.

    fillymum, those sandals look great but i'd be sure to avoid anything similar as looking at the heels on those is making me wince already!! I'll be sticking to the "sensible" option when it comes to footwear.

    will be sure to post a picture of me in the completed outfit - am hoping i'd be down at least another stone too which will just be fab and a great Christmas present!

    thanks again guys
