    whodoesntlovechips :  I loved Sierra on you before I read that it was your fav, and just figured I was the odd one out:-)  It’s just right on you for some reason and the fabric drapes over your curves so lushly — it’s Fabulous on you!!

    whodoesntlovechips :  hmm. They’re beautiful dresses, but i don’t reallt love any of your top choices on you 😕 maybe it’s the pics, maybe it’s the mirror….but you look like you have a long torso and short legs, and how the dresses are fitting is accentuating that and making your legs look really short. You have a lovely figure and i think you can do better  . If i were you, it’s try something with a higher waistline that will lengthen your lower half – i actually really love the savannah on your because of the higher waistline

    Alyssa is my favorite. You look happiest in that one, and it has a bit of romance and whimsy while still being elegant and sparkly. My guess is that Sierra is not the one for you and I gather that because it’s the dress you didn’t add any text about. You’re going to be a beautiful bride in whichever you choose, but Alyssa is the one that the pictures show you glowing.

    whodoesntlovechips :  my fave is actually the Sierra on you, though I like the Alyssa as well.

    I think you might be long-waisted (i.e. shorter legs) and with a not overly defined waist, so the Sierra is good because it emphasises your wastline and balances your figure out. 

    If you were going to keep looking, I’d like to see you in a-line dresses and shift dresses that flare out a bit or fall straight, rather than cling all the way through your hips and thighs – or, if they are fitted through the hips and thighs, have a belt or defined waistline to break up the length of the torso. Compare the Alyssa, which falls straight, to the Raine, which is not only more clingy on your thighs but also doesn’t have a defined waistline so consequently it makes your torso look longer and your legs shorter.

    I really like how Anna Campbell lets you choose different skirts so I’d like to see you in the same styles with a-line skirts (either the tulle, brocade or chiffon):

    or with the slimline lace skirts and a defined waist, like this:

    I love Sydney.. it flatters your body and the sparkle gives it that wow factor even though it’s a simpler silhouette.. beautiful! Sierra is a close second

    whodoesntlovechips :  nope! I’m in the States. It was so bad my whole bridal party was offended and upset for me. I actually wrote a yelp review about the salon and another Bee recognized it when I posted pics in another Anna Campbell thread to help a different Bee out. 

     

    Im glad you had such a positive experience! Her dresses are gorgeous, but things worked out how they were meant to – I ended up being a Claire Pettibone bride instead 🙂

    I agree with pinkcorsage, I think you could do better. None of them are really flattering on you. Why not keep looking? I’m a big fan of a certain designer and tried lots of her dresses, but tried others too.

    Sigh, I love looking at Anna Campbell dresses but never got a chance to try any on.  These are gorgeous!  They all look beautiful on you.  My fave is the Alyssa with the Sierra a close 2nd, but if Sierra’s your favorite you should go with it!

    whodoesntlovechips : First of all: you’re absolutely beautiful! And these dresses are all gorgeous! Yeah, angles aren’t the best, especially the selfies… Probably this is why the dresses I like the most are the ones I can see you wearing from the perspective of your friend taking pictures (Alyssa, Sierra and Ruby – yes, Ruby, one of your least favourites, lol). That said, narrowing it to the first two, I see why you view the Alyssa as more traditional looking and I really like Sierra’s top, but I’m not in love with the skirt. This is going to sound a bit pervy, but I was really zooming for the details, I swear, and it looked to me like the Sierra is a bit see through on the bum… Is it just me? I really like how different it is, but I don’t know why, I feel like the Alyssa looks more flattering and “important” in a way.
