Big Shirt to Shirred Shirt

Blue shirt recon with gathered neck

Another shirt recon. The original looked just like this one, except in blue. I used the first recon to take in the sleeves and shoulders, and then made two rows of elastic thread stitching to gather the neckline (this shirring tutorial rocks, incidentally). I really like the resulting silhouette, but I ran out of embellishment creativity. Should I just leave it as is? Do something more to it? All ideas welcome.

I really like the shirt the it is now and would embelish it with other accessories, or a scarf or another piece of clothing over it. I think it is really pretty!
