I’ve finally started dress shopping and man it’s hard! I went in wanting the princess ballgown/A-line look, but 5 appointments later I still haven’t decided because mermaids look so good on me! So I’m struggling with continuing to try on ballgowns (most of which don’t have straps – which I would like) or let go of that dream and get the best mermaid I found.
Dress #1 – Jasmine Mermaid
Fits like a glove, only $600, and has everything I want (minus not being a ballgown)
Dress #2 – Casablanca Drop Waist (style 2222)
Just tried on yesterday and it was the first A-line that I really really like. A bit pricey, and I would alter it to have a more sweetheart neckline and maybe add straps. Would order in ivory.
Dress #3 – Other A-lines/Ballgowns
Since the visit yesterday, I’ve looked up similar dresses in a better price range that have a little bit more of what I’m looking for. I don’t have stores nearby to try them on though. Martin Thornburg 216248 & 215277

I know you wrote that you prefer straps but for what its worth I think both of those last strapless ballgowns are stunning on you! You look great in the fit and flare too though.

I agree – the Casablanca flatters your figure far more than the mermaid-style, and it looks amazing! I know you want a sweetheart neckline but somehow I really think that the way that dress is inherently is the most flattering thing for you 🙂

i tried on that same casablanca dress and it looks a lot better on you than it did on me, lol its beautiful on you! I would definately say go with that one over the first option.

The Casablanca looks great, but I also love that second to last one! If you want straps, I’d keep looking. I think your dress is still out there!

Casablanca #2 as is. I like that neckline on you and I think the A line looks great.
