I recently bought the Allure C170 thinking that it would complement a garden ceremony and indoor tuscan style ballroom reception. I love the shape and beading on the top and thought the ruffle ball gown was fun and less formal. Maybe I shouldn’t have asked but I asked my dress consultant when this dress came out and she said 2011. Then I asked what the 2015 dresses were looking like and she said they were mostly coming out with plain skirts. So now I’m wondering… When I wear my ruffle bottom ball gown next summer will I look outdated? I can’t stop thinking about this and it’s totally stressing me out or should I not even care? Thoughts?

I dont think it really matters but, allure would have discontinued the dress if they didnt feel it fit the market … But with that said all that matters is if you love it

I think it’s a gorgeous dress!! When I first read your description, I was thinking a pick up skirt for some reason, but this is far from that. I wouldn’t have guessed it was 4 years old!

pinksampaguita: You shouldn’t care, every style becomes dated. Your dress sounds pretty to me though, I would love to see a pic

pinksampaguita: I wouldn’t worry about it, “outdated” really varies depending on where you live.
I grew up in the midwest, and now live in NYC. When I visit my Midwest friends they’re dressed like how people in NYC dressed in the late 90s, but they think the way I dress is really “out there” because to them it’s so different and those styles just haven’t happened there yet.
So from an objective NYC fashion lens, yes it looks a little dated to me. To people in many other places I’m sure it doesn’t, and in any case it doesn’t matter. Everyone’s dresses will look dated in 20 years! Just choose what you like, I’m sure you’ll look gorgeous.

I don’t think anyone is going to know that it’s outdated unless you tell them. Plus outdated or not if you look and feel good get it. Don’t let something as small as this discourage you from wearing it. Unless you are going to have a bunch of designers at your wedding talking about it don’t worry.

I don’t think this dress was ever trendy or modern- it’s a traditional ballgown (although the bodice and textured skirt does make it a bit more modern I suppose but really when I say “modern” I mean it’s apparent that the dress isn’t vintage) So I don’t think it will look “outdated” in 2015 because it was not really trying to look “in” in 2011.

Do you love it? If you do then who cares what other people think. Chances are they will just think you look like a beautiful bride.
