I love that second dress on you way more than the first one! I can totally see why you feel that way! You have an amazing figure!

Second dress is your dress!!!  Beautiful, classy and timeless.  The first one is nice, too, but it may look dated in a few years, let alone in 25 years when you look back.

I bought my first dress shortly after I got engaged. I was 4 months post op from my ankle surgery and feeling terrible about my weight gain from broken ankle and surgery. Everyone kept saying “buy for the weight you are now.” Well, I lost the weight and toned up. The dress no longer looks great on me. Now that I’ve lost the weight, I feel more confident and wanted a dress that made a statement. I bought my second dress yesterday wink

Go for what makes you feel confident. The first dress looks great but you look fabulous in the second dress!

futurerosiehanson :  You are welcome.  I just think, and this is MY opinion only, that all these sweetheart necklines and strapless are going to look dated and very 2009-2018, ya know?  That second dress will look classic and timeless and can be worn again in thirty years, perhaps by a daughter.  Think of Princess Diana’s dress – dated.  Princess Grace – classic!!

I bought a second dress too – NO REGRETS at all.  (PS my last name is Hanson, too!)

I think both dresses are lovely, but they definitely make different statements! If you feel better in the second dress, get the second dress. I thought I had found mine on the first trip to the boutique, but I forced myself to hold out. I’m now in love with a different one! So don’t feel bad, I think it’s pretty common.
