Bees, I am so happy! I ordered a bunch of dresses off the internet from department stores and have finally picked the one– I’m 6′ tall and somehow this dress is the perfect length when I have my heels on! I absolutely love it. And the fact that it was $62 during a Black Friday online sale with a coupon just sweetens the deal 🙂
I’m thinking I’ll probably leave the dress as-is because I love the simplicity, but let me know if you think adding some flair somehow would be a good idea. I’m open to any and all suggestions!
Feel free to share your dress steals!

The cut of this dress is realllllly flattering on you! I vote no to fancy accessories. The dress has plenty of detail. Congrats at finding your dress! 🙂

That’s so exciting!
Here’s my steal! It was originally $2000+ and I got it for $299 at a sample sale. Here’s it before alterations:
Here’s it during: I changed the neckline, got it taken in, lowered the back and added buttons 🙂

@SoonToBeSimmons: Wow! That is a fantastic deal, and such a pretty dress! I wouldnt add anything to the dress. I’d just get a pretty necklace (a simple pearl necklace would look beautiful,) or maybe a sparkly headband.

Wow the dress is so nice!! It looks awesome on you, I can’t believe it was only $62. I think you should leave it as it is. If you plan to wear jewelry with it that will add some more detail but not take away from the dress 🙂

@SoonToBeSimmons: I love your dress. it fits your body in a lovely way! I love the symplicity and design.
I, however, like a little bling. I vote yes for fancy but elegant accessories, through a statement necklace, dangling earrings, and a braclet.

Thanks everyone! 🙂 So fun to share on here. My hips are MUCH bigger than my upper body and I really think the cut of this helps my proportions. Yay!
@silly goat: WOW, stunning!! Your neckline alterations really make the dress!

@SoonToBeSimmons: I voted leave it as is! I’d even go simple on accessories, like a simple pearl necklace or pendant.

My word! You’re dress is stunning! What a steal!!! I say a simple necklace will go dashingly with the dress.
