Lovely necklace! How will you be wearing your hair? I think hair up vs hair down is a big one when you’re adding sleeves and having a big necklace.

i know this isn’t what you are looking for but insecurities-> trash it. 


You look so beautiful in your dress and why go through the extra hoops to hide your body.

@karineh:  +1. You look amazing in that dress! And with that necklace, you’re gonna look so good, I think sleeves would take away from it.

if you want sleeves or a cover up, I’d go with something sheer, just to not take away from the flowy-ness of the dress. I can’t find any, but that’s what I would do lol

Let me just say you look BEAUTIFUL in your dress…..You do not need to change it! It’s hard to envision it with sleeves who knows it might still be just as beautiful but my vote is not to add them and leave as is! The veil the way you have it gives you some coverage as well so maybe if you are set on having something cover up then you could add it once your take the veil off. I think that if you have a jacket, veil and necklace that might be too much.

Maybe if you are set on having something….somthing more subtle like this…I’m not sure if it would give as much coverage as you would like thou:

@Katmb85:  First of all, I love that dress, and it looks FANTASTIC on you!  (I looked a bit pregnant in it lol)

Secondly, that is an amazing necklace!  It reminds me of the amazing Subversive line – very cool!

Thirdly, your arms are not anything to be insecure about!  But I know it is not always easy to just snap out of it, unfortunately (I share some arm insecurities).  If you really want sleeves, I’d consider adding some flowy off the shoulder chiffon ones – they won’t busy up the neckline, and they’d work very well with the pretty, ethereal vibe of your dress. 

Something like this:

But please, do not feel like you NEED to – your arms are nothing that have to be covered up πŸ™‚  I know I was pleasantly surprised with how my arms look in pictures, and I bet you will be too πŸ™‚

my mama was also insecure about her arms so she got a sheer thingy and just wrapped it around her shoulders and tied it in the back. i liked the way it looked.
