For reason I''m obsessing over accessories. I want them in my closet and done with! K, so I have a vintagey thing going on, colors are red, gold and espresso. I''m wearing ivory and red shoes. What color clutch should I have? I have my eye on these 2:

Red
Gold

Or any other suggestions? Thankee!

I personally looove the first one in red. I''m not a huge fan of gold accessories (for myself anyway, not sure how they look with your coloring and hair color). I also like the style of the first one better and I feel like it fits in with your venue better. Like it''s more luxurious and less glamorous than the second one is ... or something.

Red.

I have this same problem. I now have: 2 silver beaded vintage purses, 1 blue beaded vintage bag, 1 vintage blue velvet bag (I''m replacing the velvet--this one I''m going to use), 2 (or three) pairs of shoes, 1 fur stole, 2 stones for necklaces, 1 pair of earrings, and I think thats it (for the moment). BUT, that means my entire outfit is put together. (Maybe...)

Freke, you could accessorize at least two other brides along with yourself

The red one speaks to me more for your theme. I''m not really digging the big bow with your gown and I prefer the subtle details of the red clutch.

LOL, seriously!

Damn, I was hoping you guys would say gold because it''s $10 less and I can get it at the store and save me some shipping!

I know!!! All I need now is a necklace (not sure if I want one), a veil (not sure if I want one) and earrings (to be purchased by FI as wedding gift). I could go to my parents and have "pretend wedding day" on Saturday with my dress, stole, shoes, bracelet and hair flower.

Sunnyd, I'll be the one dissenting voice for ya...kinda! Personally, I prefer the style of the gold clutch, bow and all
. What I don't like about it is the colour - nothing about your outfit is gold, which is why I actually think the red clutch would be a better choice.

Red, I think you could end up using that one more than a gold one later on.

I LOVE the red one. For that vintage look you are going for, I think the Red one better accomplishes that.

I like ''em both, but I think the red one has a slight edge IMHO, because it will make a beautiful impact if you''re photographed holding it at the reception (with the other red details). The gold, especially if it''s a softer shade of gold, can read a little bit ivory if the photographer uses a flash that washes the color out, or reflects off the metallic.

Yeah I see your point, it''s kind of a soft, faded, feels like the gold is flaking off though it''s not color.

Okay, okay red it is!

No, 2 months! I got it at the beginning of January!
I'm gonna be that crazy lady who puts on her dress for fun after the wedding and wears it grocery shopping or something.
