I think the draping on the top might look too boxy, but if you found something similar with flowy sleeves like that (but more definition on top), it would be lovely. ๐Ÿ™‚

I think it is very pretty. I don’t think it looks boxy at all, but I would make sure to try it on before purchasing it. If you have any type of figure flaws, I don’t think this dress would do much to camoflauge them.

I think it’s fantastic! Hope you can find it nearby to try on. Actually, I think that would be a dress you could easily have custom made for you! Depending on your figure type they could modify the design a bit and make it perfect.

gorgeous!

 

i think you need to try it on,

 

it could be really nice, or it could cling in all the wrong places!

You know what it’s like, you can’t tell till you try it on

good luck

It reminds me a little of a dress my friend had custom made for her wedding.  Hers was a kind of 30’s-esque goddess dress, chiffon, with sleeves (but a bit shorter)… and she had it made and it didn’t cost her much at all.  I know, because she’s REALLY tight with money, wedding or not.. she’s just that kind of person. ๐Ÿ˜‰  Point is, once you get away from things like ballgown skirts, lace, beading, etc., it shouldn’t cost a ton to have something made like that unless you choose a very luxurious or expensive fabric.  Just my 2 cents.

You know, you can actually find some of these red carpet dresses on Saks.com and Nordstrom.com and NeimanMarcus.com etc.  for less than $1000. I found a couple contendors in the $500-$700 price range that are designer labels! I don’t know about finding the exact sleeve style, but it’s worth a look too! You could see if you could find the designer of this dress for pricing! You might be surprised at how affordable the red carpet/evening gown dresses are compared to the bridal gowns!!
