- Wedding: July 2011
I am bored and feeling weddingy, so I thought I’d post some of the dresses I tried on that didn’t make the cut the first time around. I think all of them are beautiful and would look great on a bride (who is not me). Anyway, on to the pictures, which we all know is the real reason we all read dress posts hehe.
1. Maggie Sottero Milana
Holy poor quality picture, Batman! It is actually really beaded and has lace appliques. This is the dress I bought and have since rejected. I was so nervous when I bought it; it was like I knew I was making a mistake. People cried, it IS a gorgeous dress, etc., but it just isn’t “me.”

I sort of want straps. The is all pretty and gathered… and emphasizes my complete lack of hips or a bust. To be fair, it is too big and not cinched in the waist where it should, but it still isn’t that flattering. And I am allergic to asymmetry (Not only do I not particularly enjoy it for myself, but I also have to google EVERY time I type it. You’d think I’d just remember how to spell it by now!). Next!
3. Maggie Sottero Monroe
I look tall! (It’s an illusion created by the platform!) I look skinny! (It’s an illusion created by the corset and the ruching!) I like it, but it is not the look I am going for. Onward.
4. Maggie Sottero Ruby
This dress is so pretty. The lace is delicate (and swiss dot, but you can’t see in this picture) and the color is warm. Look at that hem! I love this one, but it was $500 more than I wanted to spend. Sigh.
5. Maggie Sottero
I don’t remember the name of this one, and I am too lazy to look it up right now. Sorry, bees. This dress created my love of organza. Look how pretty the layers at the bottom and the bust are! My sister didn’t like this one because she said it looks like I am wearing a dress over another dress where the lace ends, and I can see her point. The search continues.
And yes, that is Ellie’s wedding picture from the movie Up pasted over the terrible face I was making. She was a beaming bride! I had no makeup on. Do you blame me? I also tried on and loved quite a few Casablancas, but that was a different shop that would not allow pictures, sadly.
Any fun rejected dresses you’d like to share?
