@justjade:  I didn’t bring in any pictures and just told them to bring me things in my price range because I always heard that you end up falling for what you wanted least. I did think I would leave in a strapless ballgown but walked out with a lace A-line with nude colored straps!

I brought a few pictures and a few sketches I had done of the style I wanted. I loved the traditional and modified A lines, wanted flowy fabric, flower or lace detailing and corset back. The allure dress I ended up choosing was a fit and flare with floral embroidery with more sparkle than I had originally wanted and unfortunately no corset back

I wanted a drop waist… Here is what I had in mind: 


but really I had envisioned a ball gown, however we’re having a destination wedding and I thought it would look all wrong on the beach. But then the store owner brought me this one…



I found this very funny, because when I ordered my dress, I didn’t realize it was the very same designer! I also took a picture of my dress at a wedding show accidentally- It was right behind a fit and flare I liked! 

I thought fit and flare would flatter my figure better. My body shape is very similar to that of the model in the 2nd picture. Except I’m 5’4 and slightly more muscular. But the 1489 is so girlish and pretty! Plus it looks like a ball gown but is light and flowy. I just love it!
