    Does your dress have detail at the top? I cant tell from your pic (and I am on my phone). If so, I would say it doesnt go, sorry. If it doesnt then I say go for it if you love it.

    I am really bad at telling those things just from looking at them online, but I definitely think so!

    Also, I freakin’ love that capelet!! Where is it from?

    And finally, your arms look perfect. 🙂

    I voted “other” because I don’t think the dress has too much going on, but I don’t think that the capelet matches the details on the top of the dress. It also looks like the color matches neither the top nor the bottom of the dress, so I think it would be odd with three different colors. I like them both independently, but not together, sorry.  Also, I definitely don’t think there’s anything wrong with your arms!! Maybe a nice blingy belt?

    I think it would look beautiful! But it looks beautiful without as well. Just depends if you will be feeling too self conscious without it.

    @MsChandler:  If you can order it and return it without fees, it definitely seems worth a try to see if it matches!  As I said, my concerns aren’t about its looks, but rather whether it will match.

    @MsChandler: I don’t think the detail on the top of your dress would go with it. I think you need something with no pattern and makes more of a statement to go with the dress.

    @MsChandler:  It looks lovely 🙂 It’s great you were able to find it nearby!

    And your dress is beautiful. I wouldn’t worry about your arms, they don’t look bad at all. But I understand, I feel the same about mine.
