Last week I posed a poll as I was torn between two dresses (The Allure 8966 and Maggie Sottero’s Juliette). When searching for my dress I found that I wanted a dramatic bottom and an interesting neckline. The Juliette has a sweetheart neckline that also had a bit more detail and was higher on one side. Very unique and just beautiful. Where as the Allure was more form fitting and overall more flattering. Both had dramatic skirts.
At the suggestion of fellow Bees I made a follow up appointment to try on Maggie Sottero’s Dynasty since it has a dropped waist which is more flattering on my shape than the Juliette was. Although the Dynasty sample I tried on was far too small, it hit the bill and won my heart! In talking to the seamstress at the store, she will be altering the neckline to add the detailing from the Juliette so I get the pieces of both dresses that I loved. This is officially my dream dress and I’ve finally said “yes to the dress”!!!!
Here’s a pic of me in the Dynasty sample (keep in mind it will fit better once sized correctly) with the Juliette neckline added (i used microsoft paint to get a feel for the finished look – please forgive the awkward hand placement). Sooo excited!
And here’s a pic of the Dynasty on the model
