    The diamante makes the dress look very store bought. It also added sparkle to you and the dress. Diamante stones always makes a fabric more expensive than it really is.

      I.love all the trims. i bought a turquoise marabo feather length recently. i.m thinking it would make an unusual halter neck on a dress x
