General
impression
Very lovely. Technically does the job very well. I would have see it without the "old style wear" (front). The backgroud seemed interesting to work on. Can't see much of it, maybe the background alone would cut from the 20's atmosphere. To be tried. I really like your pic anyway. Subtle and classy.

Beautiful model. Really. Nice expression and posing.

Composition
& perspective
No space enough around the subject, especially above the head. It's personnal, but I've would have put her slightly out of the frame. The dress is great, but takes too much place in term of framing (don't forget the face, it's a protrait. And this model is really interesting)

Yeah, but why hide the background ?

Color &
Lighting
A little bit more contrast. Make up color a bit stronger. Put some lighting (or rework curves) around the hair. Seems the scarf is the border of the head.

Focus
Blurry (halo ?) overall with few sharp points. Fits perfectly the mood.

How to improve your photo
1.
Drop the front effect and rework background light levels. Adjust slightly background color to fit the range (other "color" but same range) of the rest of the picture.
2.
Subject too centered, and too close to the up frame. Maybe get closer, and put a bit of the model out of the frame.
3.
Try to rework the whites shades so the lace is a bit more detailed.
