Bling up an old dress for the Holidays

The holiday festivities are coming up again. I decided to 'bling' up an old plain dress for the occasions. This casual ponte knit dress was drafted and made in late 2009 when I entered Pattern Review's Wardrobe Contest:
I have some jeweled clips and brooches that I bought when my local fabric shop was getting rid of them at bargain basement prices. I just clip them up in different places and the dress turned into this:

So I think with the right makeup, hair, shoes, festive shawl and jewelry, this could be made into a  casual 'cocktail with friends' dress. What do you think?
