So the past few weeks I’ve been struggling with ‘dress regret’ I tried a size 12-14 on in the shop and need a size 0 so was having trouble picturing the fit around my waist and bottom. (I wanted a dress to compliment my bum!) Also it’s a trumpet style and I was worried how it would sit in my size as I always wanted a mermaid style. (More fitted)
Any way I digress, after going on to the designers site and seeing my dress I fell in love alllllll over again! I’ve worked out it’s not my dress I dislike… It’s the belt! The ladies in the shop were so insistent on it that they didn’t grab any others for me to try. It was pretty and sparkled so I didn’t second guess it at the time (and I was too focused on the dresses!) Now I’m thinking it’s too bulky and steals the focus, doesn’t compliment? I’m thinking I like the ‘roses’ belt more, I like how it’s a little more delicate and pretty sure it’s the one the model is wearing? (Please note it’s the same dress the models just has the sleeves still)
What do you ladies think? Am I over thinking this or should I go back and see if I can try another belt. (I already paid for the dress and belt, just waiting for it to arrive in August, would they still let me swap it?)
Thanks bee’s! 🙂 xx

x-infinity-x: I definitely think the original belt takes away from the dress. It’s hard to tell without seeing pictures of it on the actual dress, but I think I like the Roses belt the best too.

I agree that the origional belt takes away from the dress, I like the first belt best.

Go with the roses! It is such a pretty, feminine belt that will ENHANCE your dress, not take away from it 🙂

x-infinity-x: I think the dress and the belt are beautiful! However I think that the belt is too big for your frame. I know this is an odd thought but if it comes in a different size that would match the smaller size of dress you ordered I think it would be appropriately sized.
With all that said I think the roses belt would be much more flattering as it’s not bigger than your smallest section unlike the belt you bought with the dress. Hope that makes sense.

I’m going to have to agree with the other Bees here, the belt is too large for your frame and detracts from the dress. It’s actually making your waist look wider, whereas I think the shape of the Roses belt will be a lot more flattering.

Thanks girls! I’ll be calling the place I bought it from tomorrow to see if I can make an appointment to try on other belts. But I’m definitely loving the roses belt! 🙂 x
