    @NikkiKillpretty:  I think your dress is gorgeous as is and looks fantastic on you! Vintage is all the rage right now anyways! I think putting accessories to your dress will help! 🙂

    Agree with posters above – it’s not dated, it’s classic & timeless. I think this is a dress that could be worn in any decade and would be beautiful. When you look back at your photos in 20 years, this dress will still look good. I think this is a lovely gown & looks great on you!

    It’s definitely not 80’s dated, but it’s not the trendiest style – which isn’t a bad thing.  I think the big applique on the bottom is reminiscent of dresses from the time I got married (1999) but I would not say overall that it looks like a dated dress.

    Right?

    Also, is it wrong of me to think that the concept behind the dangly bits in the *horrible* keyhole back is kid of cool? 😛

    Your dress is traditional, not dated. I can’t help but feel that all the girls going for poofy, ruffly skirts will look dated in a few years (pick up skirts anyone?).

    Also, last weekend at my cousins wedding my 80 year old grandmother said she was so glad my cousin Kim didn’t choose one of those ‘pot scrubber’ dresses… I asked her what she meant and she meant one of the poofy ruffly ones! LOL

    @VioletSky:  Not even necessarily those dangly bits…. I wonder if I could find some dangly bits done right. ~_^

     

    I guess you could go with a reverse necklace.

     

    But now I’m off topic, OP your dress is pretty and seems to suit you! GO FOR IT, LADY!

    It’s very traditional, but that’s not to say that it isn’t beautiful

    Have to say that it is a style that’s been around for awhile, especially the way the bodice of it is

    made and the embroidered front panel and train. It could almost be my wedding gown minus the sleeves and the beading, as mine had zero embellishments,( and I got married in 1982).

    I think if you love it, it just doesn’t matter.

    If you want honest, I will be honest though. I dont like the dress because it looks too traditional and ”older” seeming. Id say more late 90s and early 2000s as dated but not 80s. Its a ”cookie cutter” gown In My Humble Opinion. But really, if you love it than you love it and thats all that matters. Besides, its not to say you dont look good in it but I think you should try more options?

    It’s a classic simple dress, I dont think it looks dated.  It’s not what’s “in” today – ruffles, pick ups, etc, but that doesnt mean its dated imo.

    Nope! I dont think its dated at all. My dress has a back very similar to yours and I am in LOVE with it. I’m quite happy that we dont have “trendy” dresses that everybody have. Once I joined the bee, I drooled over these “trendy” dresses and kind of regretted mine… but now I’m honestly tired of seeing so many people wearing the same thing.

    Bottom line: trends date much quicker than a classic silhouette so don’t feel bad for a second.
