Q. I am going to be married in the near future (we are considering
eloping, so it's a bit casual). To that end, I picked up the J. Crew
whitney silk faille dress in pale green and am trying to figure out
how to accessorize it. I'm thinking strappy heels and some sort of
wrap with dangly earrings, but I'm not sure what to do color-wise
since the dress is a light sage green color and I don't particularly
want to wear white with it. Would metallic sandals work? Where would I
look for something like this (especially as I tend to need a 12W)?

A. Just because you’re considering eloping doesn’t mean your wedding attire has to be casual. It’s your day to shine whether it’s walking down the aisle at the Little White Chapel in Vegas, with your closest family on a hilltop in Hawaii or having a small gathering at an intimate restaurant.
Shopping for a larger size shoe can frustrating since many designers do not produce larger sizes and when they do, they produce fewer styles and stores buy smaller amounts of the styles compared to sizes 7 and 8. It may take a little more sleuthing to find a stylish heel that accompanies the chartreuse dress, but my suggestions lean towards a metallic heel and these shoe picks all come in your size:
