    You could find a brooch that has a little sparkle to it and place it there. I difinently think something needs to be there….the flower looks kinda weird though…but thats just me.

    @bellarae I think the flower wouldnt be so bad if it was made out of different fabric…that fabric the flower is made out of look like you bumped into a table and the napkin got stuck to your leg. I like flowers on dresses but I like them better when they are actually made of the same fabric as the dress! A more sturctured flower like these:

    or this one which is from a fellow bee:

    I would move the flower up to your waist.

    I honestly don’t think you need a flower at all – the dress is incredible on you as is! But, that being said, what about a blingy brooch at the spot where the flower currently is?

    I must say that dress looks amazing on you and the flower that was on it was too big. I personally would of took that flower off to. I’d go with some bling. I nice small brooch that gives the dress some detail without screaming for attention I think would look nice and not add bulk to the dress.

    I’m not a fan of the flower, far to big and not needed for such an elegant dress, but I do think some understated bling will look fab on the dress. 

    Btw You look great in the dress!

    I tried this dress on with a belt/sash and it added A LOT.
