Leaves in the wig are fine. Strand of craft store leaves doesn't scream classy to me. Maybe make a handbag with the leaves as the strap? Or an ivy leaf bracelet that curls around one wrist/forearm? Or both? Or find a beautiful leafy fabric and make a shawl out of that...

yeah I agree, leave the dress alone and add leaves to your gloves, hair, or as jewelry.

This should go into the general construction section, not the critique area. I think a shawl would be a good idea, but not as a single strand of leaves.

Like this, this, this.
