I am going to Ladies Day this year at the races next week & I got my dress today on sale in BT's, I have a lovely hat/fasinator it is big and has silk flowers on it. The lady in the shop advised me to go with the beige colour that is in the slip of the skirt which is what I have done with the hat & bag. She also talked me into getting a nice multi coloured necklace for the dress!! ... I dont want to have to much going on as I want to try and catch the eyes of the judges... My question is , should I leave the necklace and put on a drop necklace of some sort.. maybe a pearl ? also what should I do about jackets etc? I want to go for the 1940/50s style! Does anybody have advice? I have linked a dress that is very similar to the dress I have bought. The only difference is the sleeves on mine are thiner and it is more of a v neck. Here is the head piece:

That's strange. Well the dress is black and goes to above my knee and is quite 1940's and is a v neck. :)
