So I am kind of lusting after this right now and the more I look at it, the more I am looking at it the more I think it just needs a little ‘sparkle’ or something. I have attached pictures of the dress below and some ideas I have to make it sparkle a little. The pics look a little odd bc I cropped it a little to get the visual that I want bc I want the bodice shortened and not down to the mid thigh.

I think a broach where the fabric gathers on the left would add the sparkle you are looking for. I love that dress and it looks so flattering. Good luck!

o and here are the ideas I had in mind.
or maybe a sash of some kind but I dnt know what kind. Ugh I cant seem to visualize any of it…

I like the sparkle along the top edge of the bodice. I also think a big statement necklace would work with this dress, but obviously that would be contingent on the specific necklace 🙂

I don’t think you should do anything to bodice of the dress. I think it will compete too much the fabric gathering on the dress and end up looking busy..
I agree with sealiz about having a broach or having a statement necklace/jewelry.

I love your dress!!! I know how you feel – I love my dress but I feel like it needs something more! I think if you are going to feel that way on your wedding day a broach is the way to go – I like the simplicity of the top of the dress with the rouching I wouldn’t change that part!

@brady3537: The designer is Ines Di Santo
I agree with you girls that the dress is beautiful the way it is and I do love it how it is but I cant help but feel it needs just a little something extra. I keep toying with the idea of a little beaded sash but I am unsure how it would look with the fabric gathering the way it is.
I imagine it would look something like this but I obviously wouldnt have that type of sash…I would want one like the one below it

IMO, I think beading on the bustline would be great so you don’t lost the integrity of the ruching.
