@evallence, did you decide to go with the dress? I’m sitting on a similar decision right now, and a bit unsure as to which colour to go with…. Frown

@WillowTreeWade:   Just seeing this newly bumped post.  I tried on the Karena Royale in gold, it is just gorgeous.  It is darker than the Emma in light gold, if that helps….

Aw Astra…..I SO wish you had taken pics to share…..Cry I’m not getting to try on my dress, I’m basically just seeing it online, sending my measurements to the bridal salon and they are ordering it for me…..but the salon owner suggested due to my complexion that the light gold would look stunning on me….and I dunno how the light gold looks…..**waaaahhhhhhh**

@FariM:   Here you go!!  It is a stunning dress.  The lace is sparkly and the underlayer is a rich gold.  I would have shortened the sash and removed the bling on the sash which, in person, looks a bit cheap.  Please forgive the fact that the dress is two sizes smaller than I am.  lol  Not to mention I was wearing three inch stilettos for the first (and last!!!) time in my life!  I envy women who can wear stilettos.  I am not one of them, sadly.

@Astra:  YAYE! Aw Hun you made me SO happy! Thanks for the pic! [email protected] 3 inch stilettos! So ur a shorty like me ๐Ÿ™‚  The dress is beautiful no doubt….how did you feel in it? Did it feel like “the one”? Gosh it makes me so sad to think I will never get the chance to try on all the lovely Maggie Sottero’s I have been eyeing and have the feeling like……”yes….THIS is the one!” But the Karena Royale is the best combination of everything I’m looking for, and your pic is making me feel a whole lot better about ordering the ivory on gold…. Thanks ever so much love!

@FariM:   You are so very welcome!  I was pretty stuffed into the dress, but even so it was lovely to wear.   I tried on several Maggie Sottero dresses and are they ever flattering.  Very well cut around the waist.   The lace edging on the bottom of the dress is out of this world elegant and sparkly.   The ivory on gold is beyond gorgeous.  Totally outshone every other dress in this store.

I ended up ordering a dress by another designer, but the Maggies were contenders.  I tried on the Emma dress three times!

Laughing @Jamieg:  *squeals* Honey wow! You look stunning! And the sweetheart neck looks AMAZING! Thanks for sharing with us! Doesn’t look like u even had much alteration to make….in the top photos it already fits you like a glove!

@arielmerms: Gosh I love it too! I’m so excited for you and it looks so great on you too! I guess the underlying theme here is that Karena Royale still has that ‘wow factor’ even after all these years….and I am hard pressed to find someone who doesn’t look absolutely stunning in it (which is really a good thing) I just wish there was a way I could see myself in this colour to know for sure! Ugh! 

 

Oh girls…..in some pics i’ve seen the train is really long….and on some pics it looks kind of slightly out from the dress…but manageable, how is it really? Thanks dolls ๐Ÿ˜‰
