Hey-ho all! Hope your had a fantastic Christmas!
In my dress-shopping excursions recently, I’ve been beginning to get an idea of what sort of dress I’m after – lace, strapless, with a dropped-waist a-line so I’ve got a bit of drama, but not too much.
BUT I’ve fallen in love with Point D’esprit tulle when paired with lace. I tried on a beautiful Pronovias dress, but that’s not been discontinued, and in reality was slightly above my price range anyway. But I’d love your help! I know other designers must do similar styles – Maggie Sottero has one – but I haven’t got a clue where to look for others! Equally, it’s hard to tell often from the pictures online if there’s point d’esprit or not – have you guys tried any on with it that can’t be seen in the model pics?
Here are some of the ones I’ve found online that seem to fit – have you guys seen any by other designers I’ve not heard of? I’ve not heard of many!
Maggie Sottero, Natasha:
(Ideally I’d rather something without the detailing at the natural waistline, like the Natasha has with the sparkly belt – I’m looking to combine with a plain satin-effect belt at an empire-waistline, because it’s an effect I’ve loved on other dresses)
Thank you for your help!
