Miss Octavia, this is all working quite well for this kind of venue, but we have some suggestions.

No need to thank us.

The shape is great and the sparkle at the waist pulls it back from coming off a little drab. The shoes and the pedi look great with it. But you could use a little something at the neckline, to light up your face. A necklace would’ve done a lot here, but killer earrings wouldn’t have been unwelcome. Also: it’s a cliche to say “pop of color” anymore, but really, this was an opportunity to do something interesting in the clutch area. If not necessarily color, then at least a little sparkle or pattern or texture.
