It doesn't photograph well, but had she a necklace it would have been smashing, I think.
Maybe she chose the dress thinking there would be bling and then they all opted out of that so she got caught out. (I do think they all discuss it somehow, maybe via e-mail? I don't think it's necessarily a directive from 'on high', though maybe sometimes it is. JMO).
P.S. I think the outfit is fine. I am not put off with all the skin. It's fine. Just not blingy. When Sophie 'misses' (for me) it's with her regular casual wear at outings these days. (..)
