Dear Deborah and JoJami,I have a new black dress (below) with sleeves that come just below the elbow. It is a stretchy jersey material in the sleeves and the back of the dress. The body of the dress has asymmetrical ruffles down the front of the entire dress. It falls just above the knee. The neckline is rounded around about the bottom of the collar bone. I have never worn it. Fits very well and is just the right touch of flirtiness. Dress looks navy in the picture but it is definitely black.My questions:1) What type of jewelry should I wear with this? I was thinking about maybe a multi-strand necklace. Would love something vintage, unique that fills in the neckline as well as having some length to it. I love that look. Something that pops and looks like it was meant to go with it. :-) I look best in silver rather than gold. Love the way Michele Obama adds a flowered brooch to a necklace or chains. Vintage but fresh and modern.2) What type of hose would be appropriate? I was thinking a pair of textured hose. Could you make a suggestion?3) I have had a hard time fining a shoe that would be cute and fashionable b/c of foot problems, painand joint issues. Pretty much impossible for me to wear stilettos or very high heels. They are patent leather, very comfy, have an open toe and I love them. They have a 3″ inch heel.4) What type of jacket or coat to wear with it?Thank you for your input. You ladies are fabulous! LorettaDear Loretta,Thank you for contacting us. We are here to help!
