    Go with your gut and preference. 

    I prefer strapless, but that is just me. If you want straps, I like just the ruffle trim, and I think adding tulle will make the top too busy when the bottom half already has that a-mah-zing design.

    What a beautiful dress!! The trim you bought goes so beautifully with it. I would just use the trim… No need for the tulle… it may wind up looking busy up there, and you don’t want to detract from that gorgeous skirt!

    Oh, I love the flower trim by itself. How awesome that you were able to find that! It totally matches the belt and looks like it was made for the dress all along!

    Another option could be just having the strap on one shoulder. As your bodice has a cross-over/diagonal ruching effect, I think one shoulder would go with that. You could also have the strap attached to the middle of the bodice and going around your neck for a halter-neck effect. So many options!

    Another vote for just trim.. I think double trim plus tulle would be too much. But I also am a big lover of straps so I think this is perfect!!!

    I love the ruffle trim alone. It looks so dainty and gorgeous, especially with your sash!
