Holiday Fashion Help

I need your help.  Within the next two weeks I am to attend this holiday dinner.  Think country club. 

Hors d'Oeuvres:  
Crab Bundle/Sweet Potatoes
Spring Roll/Chilies Sauce

Salad:
Mixed Spring Salad, Balsamic Vinaigrette

 Dinner:
Filet of Salmon broiled with white wine lemon butter, capers, and orange segments
Served with Potatoes Au Gratin and Sauteed Vegetables

Dessert:
Creme Brulee, Coffee, Tea

You get the idea?  Anyways, you know I'm around kids all day and now I get to hang out with adults.  I'm not really sure of the fashion etiquette, it's been a while, but someone gave me this skirt recently (still has the tags on it too) and I thought it might be a starting point.

The label says it's "marine blue", which looks an awful lot like green to me, and the fabric is some rayon/silk blend, but my first thoughts were something like crushed velvet.  What really caught my eye was this belt though.  I love those glittering jewels.

Now my friends, if I choose to wear this skirt, anyone have any ideas of what to match it with?  I'm pretty sure it probably originally had a matching top, but I know me; I wouldn't have worn it then for sure.  That bottom fabric would overwhelm me.

Ideas?

  1. Okay, I'm not a fashion expert by any means, my usual daily wear includes jeans and a shirt/sweater!
    That skirt is lovely, how about a soft looking cream colored sweater with a nice crushed/velvet looking scarf (cowl-like scarf-the same color as the skirt-or close to it)-just thinking out loud here(:
    but no matter what you wear I know you will look fabulous!

  2. I think a simple white shirt will bring out the skirt and the belt. And that matching scarf Nichole said. Don't tell me you don't have a simple white shirt / anything in your wardrobe... ;-)
