So we’re having a small and relaxed wedding (just family and three very close friends) and I knew I wanted a white dress but I also knew a big princess ball gown would be both out of place and not really my style. I love retro styles and I also had only a 6 week window to work with, so ordering a bridesmaid gown or something like that was out of the picture. It had to be off the rack.
Soooo I ordered three dresses (all in the $100 range) that fit my requirements and they were… okay. But underwhelming. I would have been okay wearing any of them, they looked fine, but I wasn’t excited about them. I definitely wasn’t in love with any of them. But whatever, I’m marrying the man of my dreams, I’d be happy about it in a bathrobe. So I figured I’d wear whichever one struck my fancy when the day got closer, and I stopped worrying about it.
And then the other day I was reading some thread on here (I wish now I could remember which it was, because I would thank the person who posted it!) and someone had posted a link to the Monica dress on pinupgirlclothing.com and the second I saw it I was infatuated. I tried not to get my hopes up too high- what if it didn’t fit? But I had ordered it within ten minutes.
And today it came and I LOVE IT SO MUCH. It fits like a glove. I’m not wearing any kind of spanx/corset/bra in any of these pics, the dress just… fits. Like it was made for me. And it’s comfortable. And I just love it. My FSIL said I should pick the dress that makes me “feel like a princess.” This dress makes me feel like Marlene Dietrich and I think that’s better.

@pinkkillersheep: Yep! And the necklace- I know it’s not clear in the picture, but it’s a translucent red amber heart that I wear 90% of the time, I’m going to wear that too. And then a little birdcage/bandeau veil and I think red gerbera daisies.

Thank you! I had really downplayed the importance of loving the dress in my head when I didn’t love the first ones I ordered, and I still would have been happy with the wedding if I hadn’t found something better. But I actually welled up when I tried this one on, I loved it so much.
