Q. I just bought a really cute dress from Anthropologie to wear to a wedding reception. The reception isn’t overly formal, sort of a hip party. It’s a halter style dress, smoky grey on the top, rust and cream mild graphic print from the bust down and a rust color tie around the waist. I’m struggling a bit with what shoes & accessories to wear. I’ve tried a few orange shoes, but they are too florescent orange for the dress. I ordered some grey peep toe pumps, but haven’t received them yet. I also thought about gold or pewter. What are your thoughts on shoe colors and a purse?

A. I adore the idea of brightening the dress look head to toe by daring to wear orange/rust heels. Although I don’t know the actual color of the belt, I found a few colors that may work. If your search is fruitless, the best next choice would be a grey heel and I’m digging some of the patent styles from this season.
