    either of the etsy belts would love great , you really dont know until you try it on with the dress, looks great as is but you can never have to much bling i say 😛

    IMO your dress doesn’t need a belt b/c the pleating is so intricate and pretty. But if I had to choose, I’d pick belt #1.

    I ordered the Alex sash the same etsy seller and I LOVE it! The pictures do not do her sashes justice! I like the first one listed the best! You won’t be disappointed!!

    I really like your dress, however I think the shape and direction of the pleating does not require a sash because it would cut right through the parallel lines (I’m an engineer, bare with me).

    Have you considered having a different strap added? Something that would be parallel to the pleats (i.e. on the model’s right shoulder) but has enough bling/sparkle. Maybe like this one 

     

    OR, maybe you can contact the seller of your favorite sash and have them make it into a strap. But if you have your heart set on wearing a sash then I’d pick the first one. It’s stunning.

    I agree with the engineer, I love the pleats and a sash/belt would disrupt the lines of the dress.

    The first belt is lovely. I admire Kristen’s designs as well. Check out my Etsy shop for more unique designs: [links removed for self-promotion]

    I voted for the first belt.  When just looking at your dress, I wanted to tell you not to put any sort of belt on it!  It has such a unique design!  But then I read how you mention your shape, how very slender you are.  It may help to define your waist a little.  I think the first one with its LACK of curly cues goes with the dress best, instead of competing with the epic diagonal lines on your dress.
