The dress picture didn’t show up.  Try uploading it with the link of the tree next to the HTML link on the text box.

I don’t see a photo of the dress.

I say no. Your gown has too deep of a neckline for that bolero. In my opinion, you shouldn’t wear one with your gown. If you have to wear one, then I would go with a simpler style in a more sheer fabric.

Agreed with noritake.  Your gown is more formal/classy than the bolero because of the frillyness and also the type of material doesn’t seem to match.

I agree too. Your dress is giorgeous,but that bolero doesn’t really compliment it in style or fabric.

I also agree with noritake. I absolutely love that dress though. With a nice detailed neckline like that, there is no need to hide it!

Agreed with the rest, the bolero is too heavy of a fabric and not the right cut to match your gown – at least in the photo.

Have you considered a wrap to go with your dress? The dress is very sexy and a bolero might not be the right combination, a wrap would go nicely I think. I guess it depends on whether you’re looking for a bolero for the look, for modesty or for warmth.

My first thought is that the v in your dress may not match well it.

I agree with PP.  Both are lovely, but not together.  Maybe wear the bolero to your rehersal dinner?

I agree, they’re both really nice … but not together. Sorry

Then again… click on, under Related Posts, the first one “Part 2! My Dress With the Bolero! and you’ll see a dress with a similar shape/V-neck and a very similar bolero and it looks stunning.

I agree with the neck line being too low for the bolero
