i had a plain black strapless dress chillin on the back of my closet door for a long time.
i wore it to a dinner party i had and my friends loved it, so i decided to dress it up a little bit and wear it to homecoming.
i started about two weeks ago, worked feverishly, and now, here's my finished project:



Cheesy



i put a bow on the back



beads and sequins and peacock feathers, my absolute favorite.



and then i decided to make a clutch to go with it since i was still all hyped up on the finishing of this monumental thing for me.
i love it Smiley i can't wait to wear it.
comments?

I particularly love the shape of the neckline.

I am a big fan of peacock feathers in general, so I think the belt is awesome! It looks great with this dress. The clutch is very charming too!

The big silver bow in the back is pretty pretty pretty.

it looks so fierce <3

i love that you paid lots of attention on the waistband but contrasted it with a humble black bodice and skirt. it looks very sophisticated. =D
