    I looooooooooooove BHLDN. My dress is being custom made based on a few of their dresses. 

    I love the very first one the most, 2nd favorite is Leila.

    #1 of the bunch is my favorite, try and tradsey, you might be able to find it for less.

    #2 is not great. I’m not crazy about the color, and the illusion neckline isn’t great.

    #3 is really pretty. Not my personal style, but looks really nice on you.

    #4 I love this dress, but is that rhinestone belt part of the dress? Or is it separate? If it can be removed, that’s my favorite out of the bunch.

    ellie17:  I didn’t vote because I can’t choose between 1 and 2, beautiful! I prefer the first two over the other two more expensive ones and bloomingdale dress.

    I love the first two. #2 would be my favorite if it was a true strapless dress. I’m not a fan of the illusion neckline. And #1 looks amazing on you as well. 

    Are you open to getting a custom made dress? It might be an alternative, especially if you can pick out different colored fabrics.

    I was blown away by the Leila dress on you (imagining that it would fit in the right size) so I voted for that one.  More so than the Tamsin and Vivienne.   But the Bloomingale dress that you have is a  really really close second that you could not go wearing that dress as I love that on you too.   Since they are so close in flattery on you, if it was me, I would go with the Bloomingale since it is just as nice of a dress at a fraction of the cost.

    I loved the Tasmin online and I love it on you. No way to fit it into your budget? 

    I think your Bloomingdales dress is also lovely. Leila is my next fav after that. I’m not sure what it is but the Ines one isn’t my favorite.

    ellie17:  There is not a bad choice. you have impeccable taste! My favourite is the Ines though. The fabric detailing is to die for.

    The Tamsin and Vivienne gowns are beautiful, but if the price doesn’t sit well with you, than it’s not worth it.  Based on these options, I think the Ines looks wonderful on you and is not a typical lace dress.

    I loved #2 but voted to stay within your budget… I also really like your dress you have right now. Its very pretty! I kinda did the same thing. I had a $2000 budget but wasnt thrilled with anything I tried on. I bought a $131 sample which is nice and flattering and a good back up. I am now on a hunt for a used gown that ‘wows’ me…we will see what happens.
