The post about Handkerchief hem dresses (and the one on dresses to wear as a wedding guest) couldn't have come at a better time! I have a beautiful, bright blue handkerchief dress that I would like to wear to an afternoon wedding in the next few weeks. The problem is I never know how to style it--and after reading this post's recommendations, I realize the problem may come from the color. I don't usually wear a lot of bright colors or show a lot of cleavage since I have a larger bust, and this dress has both factors. However I love the swish of the fabric and how the dress makes me feel alone, barefoot in my room. What do I do to make it feel appropriate in a public setting?

I have some pretty coral sandals with a chunky heel that might work, as per Angie's suggestions, although I'm not sure about the color. I feel like a necklace or topper might help with the cleavage thing, but I don't have any of those suggestions, except the denim jacket, which I don't feel is appropriate.

Thanks for your help everyone!
