kellyshoestrings 's Thoughts:

A different post today.

I ask YOU – how would you accessorize and wear this dress? How do you want to see me wear this dress? Although it’s for sale on my etsy I am in love with this print and really couldn’t figure out how to style it because the dress and print are just so wonderful. I mean, I paired it with my most neutral patent leather heels!

Tell me, how would you style this dress?

Beautiful Dress! I guess it would look nice with a big necklace or a dark belt maybe :)

with a green clutch? some happy color added to this serious and sophisticated print of a dress. but your simple style is fabulous. love the dress so much!! :)

I agree with the previous poster , a statement belt would suffice. And Maybe a patent red clutch?

i would find a statement belt.. the dress itself is already bold enough that you probably don't want to pull any attention away with too much jewelry. red gloves and clutch? this is a great dress. i'd love to put a trench over it for the fall

i would put the hair up,(cause the dress is quite conservative), and white sandal heels and white casual cluch (for chic/sexy effect)

Your shoes are a perfect match with this dress. Very pretty. I think a wider burgundy belt would add a nice touch...and maybe a burgundy cardigan.

i think it looks great! maybe some tan tstraps with big, chunky black platforms underneath. i think that combo would've been a sin in jr. high, but it's perfectly acceptable now. this dress is a great contender for a petticoat though!

Add a wide burgundy belt and chunky wooden bangles. Wooden soled platforms would also add a nice touch.

Brown wide belt at the waist, Brown or burgundy shoes, some vintage bracelets and a floral hair accessory of some sort. :)

The dress really brings out the colour of your hair. You should just wear it acessories-less. It looks fantastic on its own without being too over-the-top. (:

beautiful dress....its just a statement on itself....however ...chunky bracelet and a waist cinching belt would enhance the look even more.....and i totally agree with Annbeth with all the suggestions !! super love the dress !!
Annebeth
Annebeth on August 12
amazing dress indeed, it can totally stand on its own but would look great with accessories too! you could dress it up for different eras: simple pumps, a beret, a waist cinching belt, some gloves and retro make up for the fifties, or ethnic jewelry, platforms/knee high boots, fierce make up and wild hair+headband (the forehead kind) for the seventies. It is just a timeless classy dress!

It might be cute to add a neutral sash type of belt! I'm in love with those wide obi-like belts at the moment. It could be nice to have a simple sash tied with a bow in the back as an attention point. I like the way the neckline draws the eye right now.

Btw, I would definitely pair it with bohemian-ish brown belt and maybe some gold bangles.

I am SO IN LOVE with this dress. I think I'd only pair it with a brown leather woven belt and nude pumps. Maybe some pretty earrings. :)

I always see "Henry Lee" dresses at the thrift store, and since that's my grandpa's name, they stand out, as it did in your post. This dress is gorgeous, and perfect for fall. I wouldn't add to much to the outfit, accept perhaps a nude or beige vintage hat or belt.

What a beautiful pattern! I might put a little tulle petticoat underneath to make the skirt fuller and a little more "mad men" and add a brown or black skinny belt to accentuate the waist. a great cuff or an unusual cocktail ring to add a little modern twist to it.

This dress is amazing, I love the print as well. I think you styled it beautifully, let the dress shine. :) You could pair it with pearls for a 50s housewife look that goes along with the Fall trends, gloves would be an interesting addition to it. But I really like it just by itself.. haha
