  • poll: Would wear any of these new Vera Wang gowns?

    Absolutely! They're stunning!

    Maybe.

    No way.

    I wouldn't wear one, but I think they're nice!

    Not a single dress I like in that collection, I LOVED her 2013 collection though.

    I love the black and white. I actually wish they had been around when I was dress shopping, because I was not a huge fan of what was available to me.

    Also, I love it when people describe white dresses that are obviously wedding gowns as “not bridal enough”. What does that even mean? lol It’s not like we all run around wearing gowns like this to any other event!

    The only one I liked was #11 in the slideshow but you would have to have no boobs to wear it and I’m not really a fan of ballgowns- I just like the black lace over white.

    @seattlefashionista: 

    I absolutely love this look. I would die for an event to wear it to…say the Oscars, Met Ball? However, it does not scream bridal to me.

    The rest of them are unoriginal and bland at best. They may be immaculately made but they certainly aren’t anything special or new.

    I like 12- the rosette one.  Very nice.  I dislike all the gloves.  Bleh…

    And to me, the lace tshirt thing is awful.

    Not a huge fan, but I’m also liking #11… it reminds me somewhat of the dress that Fleur Delacour wore in Harry Potter! I could probably wear a dress like this, if I really wanted to make a statement! (Love this dress soooo much!)

    However, after seeing MOST of the 2014 dresses coming out, I am THANKFUL that I am getting married in 2013, but am wearing a Spring 2012 or Fall 2011 dress. (It is discontinued now, so I’m not sure which collection it was a part of exactly…)

    Some of the styles do seem a bit heavy for a SPRING collection, but I personally am glad she’s moving away from what Fiance calls “toilet paper dresses.”

    I’m kinda on the fence on these. I can definitely see the potential in some of these, especially the slimmer fit ones, but the black panels are distracting me and making it hard to get an idea of the real look of these dresses. Plus it feels a bit gimmicky.

    Do boutiques still carry past seasons? I’m in love with a Vera dress & really hoping it’ll still be around when I get engaged this year!

    @EmmyGirl:  They certainly do, especially the bigger salons. When I visited VW in Shanghai (which admittedly is the biggest flagship in the world), they had almost a hundred different styles from current and past seasons. Which dress were you after?
