- Wedding: December 2012
So I went and tried some dresses on today and like many, I kinda sort of fell in love!! I went in think I wanted to rock a pretty lace keyhole back number, but felt like it didn’t suit my shape.
I then tried on a fit to flare trumpety strapless sweetheart and I felt quite good, the dress itself didn’t float my boat, but the shape was pretty amazing. It gave me a beautiful silhouette and made me want to pose ‘oh la la’ style!! Lol
But then it happened… the assistant wheeled out a rack of brand new dresses that she had not yet put out in the shop. She was trying to find me another fit to flare dress but my eyes were fixed on a tiny shimmer of pink beaming out from all of the white and ivory. It is such a sweet subtle pink that without its detail sash, you would probably have to look twice. I was love at first sight!!!!
Of course I couldn’t try it on quick enough!! I felt so fun and cute in it, but alas the shape doesn’t have that oh la la shape to it and while it looked super cute, it was not as flattering.
Here it is in tea length, which is what I will get, but in the pink
My wedding is very fun and casual, much more of a party than a traditional wedding, so I think this dress will be much more fitting for the vibe. And while it didn’t look amazing on my figure, it didn’t look bad either, just not as flattering as opposed to the other style. My partner also always tells me I do cute and not sexy! So I feel like it is much more of a me option.
But I am torn, do I want to feel fun and cute or do I want to attempt to blow the socks of my man by trying out something a bit sexier? I’m waiting for my besty to get back from her honeymoon so she can tell me what she thinks!! But what do you guys reckon?
