Hey TCFKAG, So the TPS Tory Burch Walsh dress is the awesomesauce. LOVE IT OMFG. However, the belt that comes with it (basically a self-belt) is a fail. Too thin, too boring, too bland/hard to see. Would you like to find me a better belt to complement this dress? It must be with free shipping and free returns. I'd prefer to spend under $50, but under $100 is max. I would really like something I can wear with other dresses or such. I am lucky to have a naturally defined waist, but am very much a pear, if that helps. Size 2, generally speaking. I plan to wear the dress with gray or nude-for-me heels, and my jewelry is all white gold. If you're feeling particularly inclined, I'd be curious as to what necklace you would suggest too. I don't own any costume jewelry, just a couple simple fine jewelry pieces. Maybe this is another question for another day - basic costume jewelry pieces that aren't expensive but aren't cheap looking. I find the idea of building a fashion jewelry wardrobe completely overwhelming. Thanks! SFBayA
First of all, I hate you and your ADORABLE dress owning. Seriously, that's one of my favorite things that Kat has posted in, possibly years, and I wish desperately that it was in my budget right now. For those shopping along at home who don't follow Corporette or who don't remember this particular TPS item, here it is (its available elsewhere in red as well I believe). As an initial matter, I think generally a silver or gold belt would look great (silver for you probably since you stick with white gold jewelry) - or perhaps a bright yellow or green (if you could find it cheaper), maybe a nice purple or gray, or in leather a nice light tan or brown or possibly ox-blood (though maybe with some sort of designs.) I also have a navy dress that I got from Asos that I wear with a light blue/teal belt that looks really pretty together. I'm going to give you a few options below.
Fossil Woven Leather Belt in natural multi at Nordstroms ($38 - I really like the mixed leather in this.)
Halogen Classic Grommet Leather Belt in cement ($32.16 - also available in coral.)
Kate Spade reversible leather belt, yellow print/orange ($98 - a little quirky but would add interest for sure!)
Merona Macrame Woven Leather Belt from Target ($16.99 - I really like women belts though I know not everyone does - and you might have to go to Target to get the free shipping ... or you know not pay shipping...but price is right.)
Maison Bonet Leopard Print calf hair belt from Bluefly ($76 - I think this would look great with your dress with the nude shoes, but its not free shipping...maybe consider being flexible?)
Mossimo Supply Co. Skull Embossed Belt ($16.99 - Because SKULLS!)
Halogen Beaded Stretch Belt at Nordstroms ($52 - might be too sparkly for work but would look lovely with this dress).
Hope these ideas help SFBayA! Let me know what you go with or if you want more ideas. As far as jewelry, with this notched neckline, I think an opera length necklace in a bright color or a silver or gold would look lovely. Here are a few options just to wet your palette. I would also definitely wear some nice colorful or chunky bangle bracelets to add some interest with this dress if you wear it to non-work functions or without a jacket.
Kendra Scott Kinley Long Station Necklace at Nordstroms ($78 - also available in a bunch of other colors and in gold - I think the cobalt and gold would look particularly good if you wanted to try out gold.)
Obey Sunsets Teired Necklace at Zappos ($30.99 - also available in turquoise/teal - click through to see how it would hang below the neckline.)
OKAY! Now that's a post if I've ever seen one. Happy shopping! :-)
