|Don't look too closely...I still haven't shaved my legs|

The dress is still being altered: I need to get rid of some of the excess material around the armholes and I'm wondering if it needs a belt to emphasize the waist? A buckle belt or a bow belt...I'm leaning towards the bow.
Now I've tried it on at home, I've got a few questions for you. It's very simple - maybe too simple... how do I zazz it up? I was going to do my fake pearls but does that make it too costumey? Something big and bright and shiny? I'm wary of "statement necklaces" (now THERE'S a statement!) though I love them on others. I'm just always worried they will further emphasize my scraggly neck.
What about shoes? I've been on jury duty for two weeks (more on that later) so was only able to make a quick dash to try on shoes...

I'm not convinced this has been such a great idea. There's so much uncertainty about what it's going to look like. Maybe I loved the dress because it suited my friend and she's so pretty. Having it made up is certainly a cheaper option - half the price.
Ever been tempted to have a dress made from scratch?
