So to make a long story shorter… I bought a dress that friends and family loved on me, had regret because I was swayed by others’ opinions and I didn’t truly love or feel comfortable in it (but decided to wait it out until it arrived). The shop ordered my dress in the wrong size, had to re-order, now it came in defective. Trying to see if I can get my deposit back because of all of this mess.
Took all of these problems as a sign that this dress just isn’t meant to be, but had to act quickly because I only have 4 months till my wedding. There was a dress that I had tried on before (that is in my gallery) that I was sure I would get now because I loved it, but I ended up ordering another dress that I think didn’t swallow me up as much (I’m petite). I’ve been trying to hide my lower body all of this time, but have now decided to try to embrace it with this new dress instead of fight it.
So my rush order has been placed, and I feel good about this, do you guys think it looks ok? (the dress is way too big, and I’m still trying to decide whether to keep or lose the straps). Thanks for listening! 🙂
PS- So sorry if the pics are huge!
In this next one, there were a lot of people in the pic so I just erased everything haha. This one shows the straps tucked in… which way do you like it better?

I actually really love this dress with the straps – you wear it super well. That being said, this dress cannot lose either way, go with what your heart is telling you! Is this an enzoani? Looks like one of those beautiful Enzoanis!

This dress is beautiful on you! I LOVE it!
I prefer it straps and all. But that is my own personal preference [for myself] since I don’t feel comfortable in strapless.
But, it looks beautiful on you either way. Go with what makes you feel the most comfortable.

Thanks for the sweet comments and the helpful feedback ladies! I personally love the straps because I think they’re unique and feminine, but I think I may look better strapless so that’s why that’s a tricky one to decide on haha.
@pengoala: yes, you got it right! it’s a Blue by Enzoani from the 2010 line (I think?). Funny thing is that all three dresses that I mentioned in this post happened to be Enzoanis. haha I guess I stay faithful to that brand.
