    they’re virtually identical, so I’d go with the second one and save $500.

    Well, just from the pictures it looks like the Allure has more of a lace edging at the hem, which I like. Also, from experience of trying on past Allure dresses, if it has buttons down the back, every 4th or 5th one is a cluster of crystals instead of a button, which I LOVED.  Worth $500? Questionable. But would certainly make so pretty pictures from behind!

    I tried on dress #1 (Allure) and it was beautiful! The lace is so pretty and it has little sequins so it sparkles (but not in a gawdy way). Unfortunately I have an athletic build and the way the sleeves and back fit, I looked like a linebacker lol. I would definitely try it on though because you might look great in it!

    I like the first one, mostly because of the unknown for the back of dress 2, and because dress 2 is so small!

    I can’t really see dress 2 so well…
    there is lovely detail in dress one so it makes me want to go with that one but if dress two was bigger I could make a more informed decision…

    Defintely try them both on before you make a choice!

    @HopingtobeeMrsV:  From what I remember, it wasn’t too heavy but it wasn’t super light either. Most dresses with a lace overlay and a somewhat fuller skirt have tulle underneath so the lace doesn’t fall flat, and that adds to the weight. If you want a dress that is very light and airy I would look for an all lace dress (Justin Alexander is great for these), silk chiffon, or organza. But like I said it wasn’t super heavy or really hard to walk in so I would definitely try it on, especially if you can’t stop thinking about it!
