Love this thread!
Love this thread!
I don’t remember the first, but here was the second and runner-up (Charlotte Balbier Morgan):
I actually bought it and later had dress regret…I realized the tulle was so not me!
And my dress (Romona Keveza):
First one I tried on: J. Crew Chiffon Sophia
Runner-up/serious contender: J. Crew Silk Taffeta Sabine
THE Dress: J. Crew Silk Tricotine Gracie
It was the perfect choice for me! I loved it dearly!
The first one I tried:
My two runners-up:
And the winner (Casablanca 1900):
Ok I had to play! The first dress was given to me by a friend who ended up not wearing it; unfortunately it was several sizes too big and overpowered me. The second dress was a VERY close runner-up, but in the end I still love the one I chose!
FIRST DRESS – Too big/overpowering
RUNNER-UP – Almost bought this one!
“THE” DRESS – LOVED IT!!!
First dress: What I thought I wanted. I liked it but need something dramatic for my church. And I would have needed to spend a lot in Alterations to get it to flare out in the right place since I am so short.
Runner Up: also the first dress
WINNER: dramatic enough for my chuch and SPARKLE
First dress (unknown designer):
Runner up (Essense of Australia D1170, which was someone else’s runner up as well, sometimes I wish I had gotten this one):
The one I bought (San Patrick Capricho):
I’ll play. I set out looking for something simple, my only qualification was trumpet silhouette with little to no train. I ended up a bit removed from that idea.. 🙂
Winner: (fisrt pic is at the first fitting, only one I have with the train other than when I bought it, 2nd two pics at the 2nd fitting, back view is with the bustle pinned up)
OK, Best Thread Ever! I love seeing all the gowns!!
My first dress, Pronovias Gaudí:
Before my final appointment this Essence of Australia was my top contender:
Then last week I tried this Pronovias on for a 2 way tie:
Then this one blew them both out of the water:
Sorry for the big pictures
