This week’s Aussie Curves challenge is ‘sparkle.’  I wanted to show how I added sparkle to an outfit so I could wear it to a wedding. Here’s the ‘before’ pic of the dress with the regular elastic belt, no necklace or lipstick.  This is another  Gwynnie Bee rental dress and the first one I bought for $35.

Here’s a pic at the wedding with more sparkle. I added  a black glitter ribbon that I bought from a craft shop and fashioned it into a sash and tied with a bow on the side. I also wore a flower in my hair, added a necklace and pink lipstick. See all my Gywnnie Bee looks from my monthly subscription and get a 30 day free trial.

Using craft ribbon instead of fabric meant it had a really nice multiple layered effect and the bow on the side stayed in place. As as side note, you can see the floral overlay on the dress which I love.  Since, I’m a pear shape my outfits need need to have a feature below the bust which is usually a belt, or the cut of the dress so my sparkly black sash added a nice flourish to the dress.
