My dad is having a party this saturday for his 60th birthday. I chose my dress which I saw in Cosmo Girl:
http://www.rubyrox.com/presspreview.php?cover=Y29zbW8yMDA1c2VwdGNvdmVyLmpwZw==&dress1=Y29zbW8yMDA1c2VwdGRyZXNzLmpwZw==&url=aHR0cDovL3d3dy5kaWxsYXJkcy5jb20vd2ViYXBwL3djcy9zdG9yZXMvc2VydmxldC9Qcm9kdWN0RGlzcGxheT9jYXRhbG9nSWQ9MzAxJmxhbmdJZD0tMSZzdG9yZUlkPTMwMSZwcm9kdWN0SWQ9NTAwNzcyMTY3Jk50az1hbGwmTnR5PTEmTnR0PWpkLTIzMCZSPUpELTIzMA==

Its kinda hard to to see the dress in the picture so I took some pics of the dress at home:
(the dress is black with glitter in it)




Here's my question:
This party is going to be outdoors so it's going to get cold. I was thinking of knitting a wrap (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=81349.msg764775#msg764775)
like this one: http://www.berroco.com/231/231_dagmar_pv.html but in black.

or should i buy some fabric and stitch one up? it would be faster since the party is this saturday. but i dont really know what fabric to use or how to make one.

also do you think if i made one (knitted or stitched) that i should make it black or is that too dark. i dont plan on wearing it with black tights like the girl did, although maybe i should cause it would keep me warm. what do you think?
I'm really clueless when it comes to fashion so i don't know what goes togther. my solution is everything in black, that way it matches. I dont know what shoes to wear either. I'd really love to hear anyones opinion on this. thanks

We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names, and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box

Is the wrap/shrug more for warmth? If so go for wool. I think silver shoes could look cool.

If you want to go for warmth, i would go with knitting, even though it takes longer.  I can't think of a material that would be as warm and look OK.  You could knit a wrap in red or hot pink.  Get some good quality yarn though, it's warmer.

I wouldn't wear black tights, but go for something red or hot pink.  Match whatever color the wrap is.

And as for shoes, no matter what color the wrap (just not dark blue!), black pumps work!

Hope I helped!  Smiley
