first off.... Gorgeous dress!!!!

I would say simple earrings.. probably studs. From what I can tell the ones you have in look great!!! Either a big ring or a bracelet. You can probably do both as long as only one is big and they are on separate arms. No necklace!! I know in the pic your hair is probably just messy but I actually rather like how it looks with the dress. I would say something up like that. A little messy to give it some edge. Also, you have gorgeous eyes!!! lol

If you want, I would be more then happy to post some pics of what I am thinking.

ooooo lovely dress Cath,

Personally because its a one strapper, id have the hair up or half up.

Also with a bag, perhaps get a clutch. Something that could make a statement, because your dress is one colour, you dont want to have the clutch as one colour.
Something perhaps along these lines?

Shoes- Still dark but with a statement to match the clutch?

Cute silver headband and bangles to match bag and shoes

OOOOhhhh I love that!!! Every girl needs a little sparkle!!!

I would say even go for a color with shoes. Like red or dark blue/purple. A little pop.

But that's not to be warn together. If you want to wear a ring and a bracelet. Wear a big awesome ring and a simple bracelet (either silver or gold in color... depends on weather the ring band is silver or gold).

If you can't walk in high heels flats would look great too, maybe some with a little sparkle. I think you should wear your hair up, maybe something like this:

As for accessories, bracelets and rings, definitely!

I agree with everything above said, no necklace, and updo, bracelet and ring, a clutch and color shoes would look awesome. ;)

Can I ask something? Not fashion emergency but still need help. I recently got a pair of black over-the-knee socks because I've always loved how they look (a bit of my japan/korean fan side ;P) and I wanted a pair of my own. But now I'm having a bit of a problem on how to style them, I probably need to buy new clothes lol Since I go to school by bus (and walk around 15min to get to the bus stop), how would you style them for a no-high-heels casual look? I probably need new shoes too, any ideas on what should I buy?

Any pair of flat boots would work. But they must be tall. If you wear ankle boots or any short boots with high socks it will make you look very choppy. Flats for sure work also... good way to have a pop of color!!!

I have seen tweed or wool shorts done a lot with high socks. I am personally not a fan of that look. I would suggest a skirt. Something that hits about 2-4 inches above your knee:

As for tops anything can really go. The same is also pretty much true for shoes... besides short boots lol. I can't think of anything else that would look bad.
