    Thank you all :) I think I will leave it like this for now, maybe make a vest of the same material and put some sparkles all over that, so I can wear that over it or over some other dresses if I feel like being more sparkly ;) Hopefully I will be able to sew something over the holidays :)

    p.s. I will put some more pictures of this and the black and white dress sometime in this week.

    I really love this: could you add more pictures? It looks almost “daring bashful secretary”: love it!

    This is really beautiful. I love the simplicity of it, I personally wouldn’t add any sparkles (and then i’d dress it up with spangly jewellery for big nights)

      I agree: like this you can use it anytime. Accessories and special tights/shoes will make the difference.

    That’s true, thanks. I also think it would look good with the sparkles on new years eve :)

    I like this! It fits you very well… it depends what occasion your planning to wear this for, if its just evening wear i say add the sparkles!!!
