This is my first post so Hi everyone!
This is my Sophia Tolli Athena dress – with a strap added. I want my dress to have more of a wow factor. I was thinking about a sash but thought the detail on the hip might look a little funny with a sash.
Maybe I could have the dress altered near the bust somehow to give it a bit more detail. I have no idea! I will be having the bow on the right shoulder removed I think.
Could I just keep the dress as is and dress it up with great accessories?
Thanks for your help bees!

I wouldn’t add a belt, maybe you could add some rhinestone detailing along the necline if you really want it to be part of the dress, but i think the best thing to do would be to get some great sparkly jewelry

I think your dress is great on its own. I would add a big bracelet and statement earrings!

Thanks for the nice comments.
I think I am having dress regret so when I look at the photo I see a plain dress and don’t know if it flatters my figure.

It’s so classic and beautiful! If you want to add pop, I’d do it with accessories. The dress is great as it is.

I love your dress, I definately wouldn’t change it at all! Try a cathedral length/floor length veil with it, I think it will make such an impact!

I have a Sophia tolli too! Anywhos, I find that her designs often don’t lend well to sashes or details. If anything I’d add more crystal at the hip, or do it up with great accessories.

I would add some BAM earrings. Maybe add a large brooch where the ruching meets?

@sablemuse: I loved that dress!
OP, I honestly don’t think it needs any more detail. I think it would take away from the elegance of the dress (and definitely no sash).

I love it! It compliments your fantastic figure and I think with some accessories it will have the wow factor your after. Leave the dress as is, it’s fab!

I don’t think the dress needs a belt at all, but I do like the original strap much better than the beaded one you’re adding. Could you add another satin strap with the shoulder detail?
I think some jewelry and you’ll be set. Its beautiful.
ETA: I just saw that you’re unsure if the dress flatters your body? Are you crazy?! You could make a paper bag look good with that figure, but this dress does all the right things for you.

I totally also thought of Kate Hudson in that fabulous yellow dress and necklace! Girl, you look STUNNING in your dress and it doesn’t need anything more! 😀
