Sorry, I don’t think that lace bolero goes with your dress very well…

I would go for a simpler lace jacket. I’m not a huge fan of the ruffle with your gown. Maybe something like this:

when I was trying on dresses the girl did this amazing thing with a wrap.  She wrapped it around me and then tied the end back up under my shoulder blades….. so it looked like sleeves but was out of the way.  It didn’t look like the wrap-broad-shoulder-kiss-of-death at all!!!!  You could just get a long piece of lace and do that.

I don’t like the collar on that jacket with the detail on your dress….. you won’t know where to look.  your eye wants to be caught by the side gathering and the sparkle of the bodice of your dress and I think the lace collar might distract.

I did a quick look on ETSY

Do you have a picture of you in the dress with the wrap that came with it? I love that, and it would be so different.

Lace is a funny thing to find as much of it looks pretty cheap, unless you’re willing to pay for better quality.

How about something like this?


or this?
