Got the Dress...Now to Accessorize

**all items purchased by me

I have completely lost track of time today!  I've been busy playing with makeup trying to figure out how I want to wear it to go with my dress for Friday night.  Not to mention picking out accessories.  I'm thinking just earrings, no necklace.  The Mister told me I needed a blue dress (it is an event for him, with the wives having to wear a certain color depending on hubby's position).  After searching TJ Maxx, Burlington Coat Factory, Kohl's and Macy's, I ended up at JCPenny and finding one that was just right.  For this time of year, dress selection was quite slim so I was lucky I found this navy lacy dress.  And yes, I made him pick between this and another dress - gotta love smart phones!
~don't mind the absolutely crappy shot - the lighting in JCPenny's dressing room is horrible~
~I tried to find in on Penny's site but lucked out there~

I also bought a black short tuxedo-inspired jacket to wear with it since it's umm...December in Ohio.  Cold (and a good chance of snow that day). Add in a pair of black heels from my closet and I should be good to go.  Just need to nail down accessories, makeup and nails.  The Mister has a tendency to prefer darker, smokier looks so I'm thinking about maybe doing a trial run on a "Holiday Party Makeup" tutorial that Shae from ThatGirlShaeXo just posted.

What kind of makeup and polish would you wear with a dress like this?
