    I love the deep V in the back of the allure. Amazing!

    I chose the Tara Kelly because it is most similar to the original Jim Hjelm. I think its beautiful.  That being said, my personaly favorite is the Monique Lhullier.  Laughing

    I chose dress one because its beautiful and looks almost identical to your original dress choice. I dont think it would be much to put a sash on it so it would look the same. It really is a beautiful beautiful dress!

    the tara keely is the most similar to the jim hjelm, but i love the allure too. allure dresses are super affordable, which is nice.

    just curious, how did you lose out on the jim hjelm? was it a used dress that was already sold?

    I like 1 and 2 but love 2. The lace on dress 1 is heavier (antique lace?) and the lace on dress 2 is delicate and more similar to the Jim Hjelm dress you originally wanted. #2 is gorgeous, absolutely beautiful! πŸ˜‰ Let us know what you go for.

    Love the Tara Keely, and if you can get it super discounted, even better! The Allure looks really nice in the first two photos but in the close-up in the shop I’m not as crazy about the details/fabric. Agreed that the Tara Keely lace looks heavier, which is probably why I prefer it.

    The Allure looks so stunning on the real bride! I would’ve never paid any attention to it on the model but then I saw the other two pics and just, wow.

    What size and price range are you looking for in used dresses? Maybe we can help you hunt down something.

    I really like the delicate detailing and lace of the Tara Keely, but without seeing it on you, I am unsure of how the belt detail would look (since the model isn’t standing, I could see it cutting a person off awkwardly). So I think the Allure would also look great on you–the V back is stunning.
