Your dress looks beautfiul as is I wouldn’t change a thing. The dress already has the drama with how flowy the bottom is.

I love the stripes version because it is more different. However I think you look great with the dress you have on.

I’m usually very anti belt but if you want some bling, I prefer the belt to the neckline alteration. I think adding something to the neckline will make you look too top heavy. 

my dress was hayley paige keaton which has stripes. but I’m not a big fan of the striped version of your dress because I think the stripes go in too many directions, it looks too busy. Keaton’s ruffles has a mixture of tulle and striped organza in the ruffles so there is less striping and the stripes all went the same way so it wasn’t overwhelming. 

Just my opinion!

Oh that striped dress is so cute.  But you look great in the original dress as is!!  And a sparkly belt would look great.

If you are thinking about the stripes, you have to be 100% convinced about them, in my opinion.  Maybe this thread will hep you picture them a lot better (even though it’s HP, and not EoA)?: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/plus-size-hayley-paige-guindon/.


I love the stripes, but I also like it plain.  My dress is also ruffle-y, and I think the perfect accessory to a ruffle dress is a plain colored sash.

Either way, it looks like that dress was made for you!
