The handbag above looks more dressy and better matched with an evening or cocktail dress. The first handbag may be better with a day dress, such as the racing dress above. However, both handbags need a closer look for me to decide! What do you think? See more Handbags on CharityDOs PINTEREST
Years ago I had a gold satin evening gown - so this J. Mendel gown (Neiman Marcus Website) caught my eye. It's colour and shape are divine! Simply elegant  with fine gold jewellery, handbag and shoes - nothing too chunky.  A lovely fluffy evening stole? Although, understated often looks more elegant.  However, this colour will not suit everyone. It does looks good on the blond model.   Would you wear this evening gown?

I love this black lacy peplum dress by Tadashi Shoji (Neiman Marcus)!! How elegant with a simple line and cute peplum. Peplums were also trendy in the heady days of the late 1980's. This dress is good with pearl jewellery, and a lovely sparkly black evening bag and shoes. Back velvet shoes and evening bag would also look elegant.   What do you think?

I saw this red fascinator on the David Jones Website - very elegant with the black lace peplum dress.   Add a red handbag and Melbourne Cup here we come!   See more Hats and Fascinators on CharityDOs PINTEREST
The I saw this black fascinator on the David Jones Website. I like it with some dresses above. I need both the red and black fascinators, but also need a cream and a white have a choice Do you prefer hats or fascinators? See more Hats and Fascinators on CharityDOs PINTEREST
These snazzy shoes caught my eye on the Neiman Marcus Website. I thought... I could wear those ritzy shoes with so many outfits.  They do look a bit Gold Coast, but would probably go anywhere. Not that the Gold Coast has dibs on ritzy and elegant fashions.  I could wear them with a long gown or short cocktail dress. These shoes would do wonders for a ball, party, dinner or cocktail Do outfit.  See more Women's Shoes on CharityDOs PINTEREST
Watermelon is one of my favourite colours - a mix of pink and orange. I'd wear this Ping Pong dress to a daytime Do or even an evening Do. For a daytime Do add cream or beige pumps or sandals and handbag (hat for a Racing Do). Maybe a cream chanel style jacket for cooler weather. For an evening Do I'd wear more gold jewellery. Not sure about pearls with this dress as the neckline already has gold decoration. I'll need to experiment with the jewellery! But David Jones sold out of this dress in my size - so I was disappointed! See more…
Sandals versus pumps? I do like these sparkly sandals on the Neiman Marcus Website. But - how do they compare to the elegant stiletto shoes above? I'd wear these sparkly sandals with an evening gown or cocktail dress. The heel is not too high for dancing at a Charity Ball.  Which pair do I buy? Sparkly sandals or elegant stilettos?
