Wow, thank you all for your comments and help. I think I will go with no trim. I was leaning that way but just needed the push. Now to find a great pair of shoes and jewery. This is such a tough color, not sure what I was thinking when I ordered this fabric.

Trim. And beautiful construction!

It looks good without the trim, use interesting accessories.

No trim, nice accessories.

I say the dress looks good, with or without. But YOU donīt seem to be content! Honestly, would you wear it without trim but assesories? Would this change your opinion of it being boring? Or would it rather be hanging in the closet, being labeled "too dull"? You put work and time into this baby, so if the chance of wearing it increases with the trim, do it! (Personally, I love the trim idea and will keep this in the back of my mind! Itīs an easy "wow"-effect)

Another vote here for no trim, but nice accessories.

No trim with amazing accessories and Kick a** shoes. Looked at your portfolio, good stuff there!

Cute dress, I would go without the trim and have it in my closet as a basic wardrobe piece. I would consider the color almost a basic that could be worn with blue jeans.

I vote no trim, and great jewelery or accessories. Very sophisticated.

I like your dress without the trim. That is my vote. Go nuts with accessories, or not.

Without, I think. At least without the peach as laid out in the photo. I find it a bit too reminiscent of some airline uniform trimmings, etc. However, maybe a tonal satin slinky in a darker color for the neck binding and the sash might be nice. Either that or maybe something similar but with metallic threads or sequins or something (tonal here). Or, just pair it with some really long beads and chunky bracelets. Simple and fun!

Go without the trim, your dress is beautiful!.

Looks good both ways, but if it were my dress, I'd leave the trim off and dress up or down with accessories.

I too think it looks more sophisticated without the trim. Nothing wrong with a simple, pared-down dress to wear with great shoes and accessories!

Looks great! I'd leave it as is. This is one of those great "blank canvas" pieces that let you have complete freedom with accessories. I think it looks more sophisticated without the trim.

Love the dress with the trim. Defines the lines--diagonal and vertical--very slenderizing. Thanks for your review!

I vote for trim.

Nice job! - but definitely I would put trim on, I think - it helps define the lines of the dress and provides a little "pop!" visually.
