    i kind of see what youre talking about with the underlay. i guess it depends on if you want dimension in your dress, or if you want it to look solid white. Because, it definitely does not look solid white. Depends on your vision!

    I wouldn’t have known what you were talking about had I not read what you see wrong with it. I honestly looked really hard to see what you mean but I didn’t find it. So I think you are thinking too much about it! the dress is beautiful and it looks lovely on you. I would go make that appointment!

    It looks GORGEOUS and I think the underlay is a littler darker to make the delicate lace work POP.  It really looks great.  The only way it could possibly look “dirty” is if there is someone else next to you in a WHITER dress.  😛  I really think the variation is just pretty. 🙂

    I really like it, and I don’t think it looks dirty at all.  As PP’s have said, the different color underlay adds more dimmension and makes the top layer of lace really pop.

    Nothing about that dress or the color of the underlay is dirty! It’s beautiful and I would totally wear it!

    Can you ask the shop to show you a different justin Alexander dress in the white silver combo ?  I couldn’t see my dress in the actual color I wanted but they were able to show me lace and tulle from another dress so that I could get a better idea of what I wanted.  I think you look great in this gown and I don’t see anything that makes me think the dress looks dirty. Perhaps the sample dress is just a little ‘dingy’ compared to a brand new one ? That could account for the difference between photo on their website and what you see in person. 

    I dont  know if the shop ( or justin Alexander) offers this program but I know allure , maggie sottero and a few others do.. there were a few dresses I wanted to try on  that the  salon didnt have as samples.  I was given option of paying 100$ to have the gown shipped in from designer so that I could see it in person and try it on. If I purchased the dress the money went toward purchase, if I didn’t, I would have a 100$ credit for when I did buy something.  Maybe you could ask them to send in a new one for you to see ?

    What a stunning gown, it definitely doesn’t look dirty to the eye. And it won’t look dirty in pictures either, because your photographer will make the necessary adjustments…it sort of has this platinum tone to it, very old Hollywood I feel.
