That night I wore it with pearls and flats (after I realized that sandals and tights was not a good idea). Also, this shrug had no closure so I have a little trick for holding it closed and hiding the pin.
First, safety pin your shrug closed.
Then, slip the prong of your belt through the middle of your safety pin.
Finally, clasp your belt and tuck the pin behind it.
This will help keep your belt in place as well
Do you have any bridesmaid's dresses that you've worn again?
