Hi..I’ve seen my dress on here many times but I want to have my dress stand out a bit. I don’t want to add sleeves and by the dress having a corset back and beautiful beading I dont think a sash or belt would help.
soooooooo I thought about fingerless lace gloves?…what are your thoughts in making this dress more original? I have a long cathedral veil with lace detail on the ends.
By adding gloves is it too busy for such a vintage dress?

@saintsation79: Personally, I’m not a big fan of the fingerless lace gloves, I find them to be very busy. They’ve always reminded me of 1980s Madonna. I would look for a beautiful applique bracelet like one of these, they make a statement and are very antique looking but since you’re only wearing one and not two it would help with the busy factor.

It all depends on your personal style, but I agree with @chouette: about the 80s vibe with fingerless gloves.
Maybe do a pretty hair piece, simple necklace and earrings, and a nice bracelet like has been mentioned?
You could even do a lace bolero if you like the look of lace. There are a number of vendors you may like on Etsy!

Thanks ya’ll..I’m on etsy now. I can see how the 80’s thing is coming about chouette ..too much lace is screaming Madonna! LOL..I thought about the longer lace gloves but that doesn’t help either. as for the jewelry I’m wearing a simple pearl necklace, earrings and bracelet. For some reason I just feel like it’s missing something though.
I guess because I’ve been seeing ladies accessorizing by adding sashes, shawls etc I feel like I need to do the same but I can’t do much with the dress. I’ll look at the bolero @lorelai .

@saintsation79: No worries! Good luck!
Also, don’t feel pressured to do anything because of what you’ve seen – do what feels right for you and your own style 🙂

@saintsation79: I like the lace bracelet but not the fingerless gloves. I am selling a lace bolero never worn for $20. It is ivory and it is so comfy. Size small / medium if you are interested just message me. 🙂
