    If I hadn’t of already bought my dress, that Essense of Australia would be a huge contender. That is GORGEOUS!  No question.  It flatters you so well, and it still has bling (the belt). 

    I’m not crazy about the second dress, and I love bling (my dress itself is covered in sparkles and crystals).  I feel like the way it is placed, it feels more ‘prom-ish’ to me.  Just my opinion though.

    Totally unrelated, but is your city correct in your profile? My hometown. 🙂

    @renatajulie:  They’re both beautiful on you, but I love the romantic one. I’m not a fan of the sparkle on the Allure. I don’t like how it’s concentrated on just those areas. Maybe if it was more spread out or only on the bust? I dunno. I love the EoA one, though.

    I really liked Number 1 in the seated photo but then in the standing shot the way that lace overlay bit is just throws me off a bit…but I really like this style in general on you! Not a fan of 2 at all sorry, just not my taste.

    I voted for the Australia one, but I think the Allure is still a great shape/material for you. I just don’t like the huge CHUNK of beading in the middle; it’s just so… abrupt? There are other patterns of bling that would look fantastic IMO 🙂

    I’m button inept, I meant the Essence of Australia, but accidentally clicked the Allure.

    I voted Romantic — you look gorgeous in both — they’re both very flattering. But the blingy one did seem more “pageant” to me — maybe it’s because it has that the wide V-shaped bling which I often see in pageant dresses? I think if you wanted bling, you could find more sparkle that is also more bridal. Maybe more like this?

    @renatajulie:  Haha awesome, hard to find other bees from this area!

    If you don’t like the lace overlay, is it able to be removed? I do admit when I saw the standing up picture, I wasn’t as crazy about it because of that, I just don’t like the way it flows with the rest of the dress. It’s still beautiful though, I think dressing it up with that belt adds the “bling” but still romantic feeling.

    ETA: The Allure 2710 you just posted is gorgeous too!  Those would be my top two choices for sure.

    I’m sorry love, neither is truly doing it for me. The romantic one is not a great shape for you. The blingy one is just too pageant, but the shape is good. Look at more drop waist ball gowns or fit and flares.
