    Ok, so after a LOT of searching, I finally found my christmas party dress It was one of those dresses that I didn't think would suit me on the hanger, but as soon as I tried it on I knew it was the one, it was so flattering.

    But, I have no idea what accessories to put with it. Ive already brought a silver drop crystal statement necklace and crystal bracelet, but need a bag, shoes and maybe something to cover up the top of my arms, like a lace bolero, as I have a tattoo I hate. But I don't know what colours to go for; silver, nudes or a contrasting shade? And what would you wear over the top, don't know if a bolero might look dated?

    This is a similar dress and necklace, although my dress is strapless.

    Any ideas from fashionistas would be greatly appreciated

    I actually think an ivory bag would go lovely with that dress to keep with the nude colours, something this sort of colour:

    As for a cover up Im not too sure, I think keep to the same kind of colours, found this but its white and petite so not very helpful.

    If you want a lace one I think Ebay will be your best bet as I havent seen any around recently - or try bridal sections in places like BHS etc. Sorry cant be of more help!

    EDIT: Amazon have some lace boleros on there too.
