I have already purchased a dress, which got a big THUMBS DOWN from everyone. It was only a couple hundred dollars, so I’m not too heartbroken about it. So, I’m back to the drawing board. I have it narrowed down to two, one of which is a sample that they are holding for me to purchase, but I need to make the decision tonight. I love the beaded dress with sleeves! I feel very “Party at Gastby’s!” I’d likely “reign in” the sleeves so they are shorter and less flowy…but otherwise….L.O.V.E.
The other dress is the a-symmetrical one. I love how my body looks in this one! (I’ve lost 185 lbs a few years back, so I wanna rock it!) But, I don’t love the overall dress as much as the Gatsby dress. My friends and family, however, love this one more. They think the other dress is too matronly. Which should I choose?

I love the first one!!! But do you love it? Your body looks great in both! Get the one you love though! I was talked out of my dream dress by my family and now I have dress regret! You don’t want that! You do look great in both though!

the a-symetrical one (top picture) is FANTASTIC, you look incredible, i love it.
the bottom one i like but it doesn’t seem to fit you as well.
COngrats on the weight loss, that’s a huge accomplishment, you should totally rock it!

The top one is gorgeous on you!
The bottom one looks like it would be for a much much much much older woman.

Dress #1 is drop dead gorgeous!! It actually feels very Gatsby to me too, so I was confused at first as to which dress was which. I’m sorry but I agree with your family that the second dress feels very matronly. You look smoking in that first dress! The second dress just doesn’t do your figure justice IMO. And I’d be THRILLED with that kind of weight loss, so I’d want to show it off!

Thanks, everyone! I’m actually leaning towards the Gatsby dress…I just love it so much. 🙂 I don’t dislike the other dress..but because it’s favored by my friends and family, I love it, too.
Ugh….I keep going back and forth. If I were a Diva (and wealthy)…I’d get both!

Oh, and neither one are fitted to me. The Asymetric dress wasn’t even buttoned in the back..it didn’t quite fit. The Gatsby dress was a bit big on top, and would have to be sized down.

I love both and normally would go for the second, BUT if you lost 185 lbs SHOW IT OFF!! That first dress is GORGEOUS on your new figure!!

Trust your instincts and go with the one you really love. Once it’s altered to fit you better, and maybe shorten the sleeves or have them reworked, I think in the long run you’ll be happier. They’ll love it on you when they see it all come together.

I love the first dress! Ultimately I think you should choose the one you love the most because you look great in both!
