- Wedding: August 2014
I am really feeling so confused! Everything I thought I wanted in a dress looks bad on me and everything I don’t like style wise is what seems to be what actually looks good on me. I am not a girly girl, I never wear dresses so this is already overwhelming. I have always hated shopping! Add in the fact that stores don’t ever have samples in my size so I am left staring in the mirror at a dress 3 or 4 sizes too small guessing what will look good.
When I got engaged I really wanted lace wth cap sleeves and something flowy and simple. We are getting married at a summer camp in August so I wanted something that wasn’t too over the top. No beading or poof and just an accent of sparkle. But I don’t think those dresses flatter me as much as the ball gown or corset back dresses I have tried. I just feel confused about what represents my personality. What looks good and what I think respresents me are two different things. But I also feel out of my comfort zone in ALL dresses so I just feel totally lost. I’m also bad at looking past imperfections and seeing the big picture. I look at some of these pics in dresses too small and I just see the lumps and bumps. One of the dresses below is in my size the rest are all a few sizes too small. I feel like when I show them to my friends they all say the one that fit look good. But If they were all in my size would that answer be the same?
I need some feedback from strangers. haha. Please tell me what shape or elements you think look good and bad. Keep in mind 4 of these are not in the right size. I am so sick of shopping. I have been to 6 stores and just want to be done already! But I really want to feel beautiful which is something I rarely feel. Help this bee out, i am going crazy looking at pictures!
