what would you put on top of this cake???

So im making this super cute topsy turvy styled 2 tier cake, but the bottom a zebra print hat box, and the lid is open so theres your bottom tilt... the top is a dress, its basically a 1 sleeved dress (to give the other tilt lol) with piped swirls on top and rose petals on the bottom... yall can probably imagine that...

my colors are zebra print... w/ purple and aqua... the top of the dress is not quite a 45 degree angle but its pretty steep... and i just dont know what to put "on top" aka on the slope of the dress... it needs something... I was kinda thinking a bow, but then kinda thinking about a shopping bag type of thing...

the cake is for a little girls 9th bday... and she is a girly girl! were talking coach purses and caviar dreams here lol... i just wasnt sure what to do on top... I'm going to attempt to attach my drawings of the cake plan... keep in mind im a cake decorator and not a paper pen artist lol... the bottom tier is round btw... these are the pics I showed the mom so she could see my plan... hence all the notes

I meant to add that i've made a few things in advance to use around the cake board, theres some lil nail polish bottles, a pair of sunglasses, some shoes..... and i bought this napkin ring that looks like a big massive diamond ring. I made some "diamonds" out of melted jolly ranchers and a mold so i have those as well.... I've also got this super cute purple A that i was gonna put on there somewhere... still not sure where lol... i've had alot of inspiration for this cake can you tell??? i think i was putting all my energy into this cake as my daughters first bday is next weekend and im still clueless on hers lol...

What about your big "A" surrounded by a bunch of pearls?

I like the idea of the big A on top with pearls and sparkles!

I'm thinking maybe one of those big flowers that are so popular now, white. losts of thin beautiful petals.

One big or a cluster of smaller flowers on the high part!

seems to me there should be a "head" there and that would be a bit creepy. i vote to not put anything on it. you are gonna put flowers where a head should be? lol. maybe flowers on the small part (shoulder area).

Yes, a gorgeous large flower(could be a fantasy flower) would be beautiful. Love the design.

BTW, i am an architectural designer and I love that you used graph paper and the "drawing" is actually really really good. my sketches are hard to even visualize except myself. Don't dismiss your drawing and sketching skills!

A big number 9 with lots of bling.

I keep being tugged to place your large A (blinged out with disco dust on the highest part of the shoulder surrounded by medium sized flowers and leave the slanted part alone - if you bury or hide the slanted part it will lose the nice angle you plan for it. Accenting the one draped shoulder also visually increases the slant (which is extra cool). If leaving that part bare bothers you, why not carve it narrower at the top so that there's less area to be tempted to decorate.
