    I can picture it and it would be gorgeous, however I think you would have to change the fabric on the top from something other than satin. I think something less shiny to go with the tulle would be better.

    I can’t see the pictures, but it sounds very pretty!

    I love that tulle dress you posted, and to my eyes the heavy beading on the other bodice you posted wouldn’t do the tulle skirt any favors.  I’m pretty sure I remember your first dress, and this would be a big departure, right?  Have you tried on any dresses that have skirts and bodice combos like you’re thinking?  If you’re set on this, I agree with a PP and think it would better to have the beaded bodice on a softer fabric, not that shiny satin above the soft tulle.  Anywho, I would encourage you to just go try the tulle dress itself and see how you feel, it will at least tell you if you’re on the right track here.  Best of luck!

    @SusieNor:  It sounds like it could be very pretty! The only thing I’d worry about is whether the tulle can support the weight of the stones at the top of the skirt. If it can be done, then go for it!

    I say yes to the tulle with the blingy pnina top!

    allure makes their own version of the pnina. Maybe see if its in a local store to make sure you like the jewels?

    I tried on that Pnina and it was very, very heavy – I think it might be a little much with the tulle skirt. However, if you toned down the beading, I think it would be beautiful!

    @SusieNor:  great idea, check Ann Taylor they had a long tulle skirt and matching top that were really pretty.

    I definitely think a Satin bodice with a tulle skirt would be fine together. That style works well on the very pretty Isadora (Isadora Marie/Isadora Ann) gowns that Maggie Sottero makes: http://www.maggiesottero.com/dress.aspx?style=J1419

    I wouldn’t try to combine the two dresses, personally (Lazaro and Pnina). I love the Lazaro dress. 

    I’m not sure if this helps but the second I saw the picture of the Pnina dress, it reminded me of a dress I tried on. It was Allure Couture C240 and I think still over $2,000, but a similar style.

    I think it could work – there are plenty of satin bodice/tulle skirt variations out there – but I think the current version of the Pnina bodice will need tweaking. The satin and the crystals look VERY heavy and I think it might look a bit top-heavy with a soft tulle skirt. Maybe you can do a tulle-covered boned bodice instead, or organza? And then have lighter beading over that.

    Not sure if this will help, but I was just reading a thread where another Bee posted photos of her Allure (9003) that looked SO similar to the Pnina. I believe it was around $2000. Just an idea!

    Don’t want to repost her pics, but here is a link to her post: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/the-new-allure-line#post-5212481
