I haven’t decided on a dress yet so this is round 2. Or rather I decided last night in the store but told them to wait til noon to order. I’m struggling a lot with this decision. The first dress I would remove the overlay on the skirt panels so it would be satin all around and I would remove the belt (we put another belt on top so it doesnt sit right quite set). The second dress I would make it a deeper sweetheart.
Both dresses are satin. I swore I’d never get satin but I’m coming around to it… How well does it photograph though? Will the light reflect off it funny?

What about the satin? Since 2nd dress is all satin, will the lighting reflect funny on the sheen?

ALSWM: I heard it’s best to get a dress that’s slightly off white (or ivory) when going with satin, otherwise it may look blue in photos in some light. Otherwise if it’s also a matte satin, it should be fine. There are a LOT of photos of Maggie Sottero’s Adorae online, it was really popular for a few years, and is a satin gown. I used that as a comparison as you can see so many different types of lighting and shades of white, to get an idea 🙂

I like dress 2. 🙂 I am no expert on the satin reflecting the light strangely though!

I actually like Dress #1 WITH the panel overlays. I think it fits you beautifully.

I love dress 1!!! It’s unique and classy, dress 2 I feel like I’ve seen a million times.

I like the first one a lot better. The second one just doesn’t do it for me

#1 by a long shot. #2 Is way too common and, TBH, I hate lumpy skirts like that.

The first one is beautiful!

They are both beautiful but I voted #2!

I prefer number one, a bit more quirky and still classic.
If satin isn’t your first choice and you’re hesitating, might it be worth carry on looking?

ALSWM: For me it was easy. I think dress #1 is really unique and lovely! With so many dresses that look alike it was really refreshing to see this one! And I’m afraid I haven’t been a fan of the type like in dress #2. It just says mummy to me.
