    I voted yes.  Definitely add some statement jewelry to jazz it up.

    @joya_aspera:  It looks like polyester georgette to me (look at how sheer the hem is). I think it’s fine fabric-wise.

    @dancingfox:  If it’s jersey fabric, it’s a no go.  I can’t tell from the pic.

    @dancingfox:  Yeah, it doesn’t drape or look like jersey at all. It’s probably a silk-blend dress with polyester lining.

    My biggest issue with it is that it looks like a bridesmaid’s dress, instead of one I’d wear to a black tie event.

    It looks nothing like jersey material.

    @dancingfox:  If I’m sticking to Western clothing, I typically wear gowns like these to late afternoon/evening black tie affairs (the Outnet is one of my favourite go-to shops):

    If I wore the gown you posted, I’d wear gold & pink jewelry, a sparkly/textured minaudiere and killer strappy heels:
