@eocenia:  Oh my gosh, that gown looks BREATHTAKING on you! The company should have had you model it for them!

I had originally wanted a ballgown from Lazaro that was GORGEOUS, but just not what I wanted. I wound up purchasing Paloma Blanca 4111. I never would have wanted it had I just seen the picture, but when I put it on, it was PERFECT.




And me (Pro pic for sanity’s sake, and then a mirror pic, haha):

I saw this picture and it spoke to me; the dress just seemed like something I had to wear.

And the reality…

It hasn’t been altered at all in this picture.  I get to see it fitted (no clasps or pins) this Thursday.  I hope.  This dress actually makes me feel more elegant than I actually am.  That model has nothing on me.

Mine is the Essense D1460. I’m wearing the sample size in the picture, but I prefer it on myself than on the model.

Crazy model 


and on me! My alterations turned out perfectly but I lost about 8 lbs weekend before wedding so I had emergency fitting and seamstress promised to take it in again.  time constraints made it impossible to try it on again but the lady had done great job so i trustrd her. She definitely did make it smaller but somehow she screwed up and the satin under layer must have not been tacked down properly so the lace layer bunched up causing a hideous wrinkle under my boob ( to cant even look at it makes me so angry .)

You girls are putting these models to shame!!! I’m not going to upload a pic of me in my dress until after my wedding so that I can’t be found in a google search – but you girls look gorgeous!!!!
