Okay bees, I ned help. We are taking our engagement pictures this Sunday. We are starting in Brooklyn to take some with Manhattan in the background, walking over the Brooklyn Bridge taking pictures along the way, then a few shots in the subway. There is really no time for a costume change. I kind of want to mix it up a bit, sooooo I was thinking of wearing this sparkle sweater over my white lace dress for some of the shots.
What do you think about the dress with the sweater over it?
Here is the dress (sorry, don’t have one with me in it—yet!)
And here is me with the sparkle sweater and the dress
Thanks for your help!

I love the dress! I think it looks better without the sweater

I am not a fan of the sweater but how about a nice coloured cardigan or blazer?

Do you have a cropped cardigan, maybe? I think part of why I’m not a big fan of the sweater is that it seems to lie at a weird place compared to the hem of the dress. The dress is really cute, though!

Could you do a denim or leather jacket instead? Or even a blazer? I think any of those would work better.

I love the model’s SANDALS!
I like the dress by itself without any sweater or cardigan added. A wrap would be nice.

Maybe a cardi with a belt?
just a belt?
maybe a shoe change?
wear your hair up and then take it down (or vice versa)?
add a chunky or long necklace for some?

For a pop of color, maybe a cardigan or wrap in your wedding color?

Ooh, I really like the blazer idea that PP suggested above.

I agree with PPs that something like a cardigan or blazer would be better. That sweater is adorable, but where it falls on that dress chops you in half weirdly.

A blazer would work, and I’d definitely wear it with a blazer in the future. But I think it’s just a little too structured for the look I want.
I could always do a cardi, wrap, or scarf…but I wanted something a little more edgy/funky.

I agree with the PPs to skip the sweater. If you want to do a costume change without having to actually change the dress, try putting a dress type coat over it and a different pair of shoes. Something like this instantly gives you a whole different outfit.

Bring a bag of long scarves and pashimas – you could always add/take away jewelry – bring a hat, a feather clip for your hair or a jeweled headband – crazy long earrings and a silver bracelet cuff. You could also bring a small bouquet and props like champagne glasses, bubbles, parasol and the like. Have a great time and skip that sweater – too drastically different and will take away from the dress unless you just get shots of your upper half of body.
Have fun and congratulations!
