    I didn’t read many comments, so sorry if this has been mentioned already. How about hemming the skirt to knee-length or even mid-calf and then wearing something underneath to fluff the skirt out a bit? Tuck the top into the skirt and add a sparkly belt, sparkly necklace, and sparkly chandelier earrings (or just the sparkly belt and chandelier earrings). Also, maybe some sparkly or nude heels? Hair half up and loosely curled. 

    Edit-Also, maybe hem the sleeves to 3/4 length?

    Way too matronly and formal looking for a brunch. I agree that it swims on you. Something does not have to be revealing to be figure flattering.

    I personally love the skirt!!! Maybe pair it with a top like this though?

    It isn’t doing your figure any favors.  Maybe if the top was altered by a seamstress to fit better?   It the way the lace pattern hits, the top makes it look like your bust is really sagging down several inches.

    i can see the idea you’re going for – I think you can accomplish this vision but with different pieces.  You can do better.

    I like the skirt, but maybe in a lighter color. The dark color doesn’t scream rehearsal brunch to me. While you’re at it, get a shorter knee length or midi length tulle skirt

    franklymydearidont :  

    lt is an …odd comment l do agree. Several suggested better fitting etc, but in a normal woman to woman style way. That one sounds like some pervy old guy .

    OP, l hope you come back and show us your new top.

    aliencereal :  I think it’s very classy! Maybe shorten the skirt a little.
