Add Sass To A Navy Cocktail Dress

Dress CopyQ. I recently purchased a Navy Satin Pinstripe dress by Betsy Johnson for a formal evening wedding this July 2007 in downtown New York (which I hope is OK to begin with!) However, I want to add a little spice to the dress and not just buy a black/navy satin shoe since the dress itself is different as far as style. Any advice on how to spice things up a bit!

A. Metallic or color is the best way to add sass to a navy dress. Here are several options for your feet and to carry.
