Angie, your suggestions in the other thread led me to this Alice+Olivia top that I love. I can even see myself wearing it in the future and being happy it is in my closet.

The pics aren't great, and I wasn't able to zip the zipper all the way up in the back (a contortion issue, not a sizing one). I'm wearing it with my AG skinny jeans to simulate whatever slim black trousers I find to wear to the wedding. I'm adding the find to help with the visual. Ignore the shoes because I know they don't go, they're the shoes I'm wearing with my actual outfit today and I'm lazy LOL

I need inspiration and ideas about what sort of shoes and bag and jewelry to do with this outfit for my sister's evening wedding. I've got a bigger than usual paycheck coming in a couple of weeks, so I'll be able to start stalking my fave websites, watching sales, and planning a trip to Dallas proper for consignment shops and all of the good off-price (&full price) stores. But I need ideas, direction. My sister's groom-to-be is wearing jeans and cowboy boots to the wedding, but mom and I agree that we want me to still dress semi-formal to honor my sister on this wonderfully happy occasion, so please help me look like I know what I'm doing when I get dressed

Final note: I'll be taking the top to a tailor to make sure a professional can insure proper fit, but if you see anything that needs to be tweaked then please say so
