How to Dazzle Up Your DressWritten by d'Italia
If you’ve got an old dress sitting at home and you want to do something different, you can always add a little bit of sparkle to it. Now a great way to have a new look is by using colours, embroidery and adding diamonds or pearls. We at d’Italia have got some great ideas for you. You always have the option of using trims. This is a handy video for anybody who needs an easy and very effective way to dazzle up and make an old dress new again!
"One for instance, is a trim that we have, which is a mixture of embroidery and beading. You’ve got some beautiful knotted silk, a wonderful lurex thread embroidered around it - plus, some beading as well, which includes sequins and bugle beads. Another option is always a dainty little trim that’s thin. It’s beautiful, feminine, not too much and too out there - but you can always have the option to add more. The good thing with something thin, is you can always add another line to get the illusion that you’ve got more. You could always buy embroidered silk trims as well. Here at d’Italia, we’ve got an embroidered silk trim that has some beautiful flowers that’ll go on black, white or greys - whatever you fancy. At the shop, we’ve also got some feathers that you could use, as well as lots of pearls, and tons more great ideas to jazz up that old dress." - Melissa from d’Italia
