Hello lovelies :-). I purchased my dress not too long ago at a Sample sale but after bringing it home I realized although I was fond of the style and fit, I didn’t like the flower detailing on it, as well as it not having as much bling as I dreamed my dress to have.
This is what I look like in it…I need help deciding if I should take off the flower detailing and add some bling across the neckline instead like the last photo I will post up. As well similar to the last dress with the beading should I turn this dress into a sweetheart neckline. All your help and advice is very much appreciated. Thank you :-).
Should I alter the above dress into a sweetheart neckline and add beading similar to the below picture across the neckline alone (not at the center and side of the dress-just the neckline)…as well as perhaps a crystal brooch at the hip section where flowers used to also be ?

I’m not going to vote because personally, I love the flowers – and I love the flowers on you! But I get the feeling your heart’s set on the bling and different neckline.
I think it’s beautiful as is, but it won’t at all be ruined if you make the alterations you suggested. I love sweetheart necklines, and if you were to do the beading, you would def want to change to s/heart to give the beading some shape. (the brooch idea is a good one too)
Sigh, I’m no help, I like both ideas! Go with what your heart’s set on!

The dress is lovely , its almost sweetheart neckline so altering that would only need a nip , the flowers seem ok to me hard to see from a distance but details like that are nice on dresses, my allure 8764 has flower detail and without it just wouldnt look the same, I do love the beading on the dress you posted, if you can create that look then go for it its stunning , good luck

I think it’s gorgeous as is and wouldn’t change a thing personally. If you’re set on having bling, try adding a skinny blingy belt (I don’t think anything other than a skinny belt would work) and see how that looks. If you remove the flower detail though, I think you could go with a wider belt – maybe worth a try and see if that satisfies your need for sparkle.
Honestly, I don’t like the bling on the last picture you posted and I think that would take away from the beauty of your dress. I also don’t think you need to alter it to a full sweetheart – I think the slight sweetheart the dress already has is absolutely perfect with that style.
This is all just my opinion though so feel free to disregard!

the dress looks GORGEOUS on you! great figure! Sweet heart tops are very cute so that would definitely add a little something, have you thought of a blingy belt/sash? sometimes it’s not enough but there are some pretty intricate ones out there, good luck! 🙂
