mixing pearls and rhinestones?
Posted: May 4, 2005 6:04 PM

I usually know exactly what I like Wink, but I'm having a minor dilemma. My dress is a knee-length strapless A-line in a silver and pale taupe brocade, very vintage cocktail-dress. My earrings are a gorgeous pair of vintage pearlized plastic and dark AB rhinestone floral clusters. I ordered ivory pearl hairpins for my hair, and now I'm wondering about ordering a veil lightly scattered with small, delicate pearls. The veil is shoulder length. The shoes I'm thinking about are a little kitten heel with subtle rhinestone buckles, and I had thought of wearing a rhinestone brooch pinned on the sash of my dress (in the back). If I go that route, should I get a veil with rhinestones instead? If so, do I still wear the ivory hairpins? The earrings stay, no matter what! If I figure out how, I'll attach pictures of the whole ensemble. Thanks for any advice!
