These were the 2 dresses that I just LOVED but couldn’t try on. A Justin Alexander and a Pronovias Atelier From 2014.

I ended up with and Essense of Australia dress that I’ll be altering a bit. Creating a lace illusion back around the buttons and adding a belt. 



I knew new I wanted fitted, no lace and preferably not strapless. When I started trying on dresses I realised I loved huge trains too so this was perfect!

Almost bought:




Poofy ball gowns made me look like a little loofah (I’m 5’3 ish) and body hugging dresses made me look like a Kardashian. My dress made me feel like a bride! It’s just right!

I was only looking for dresses with straps. I never wanted a strapless dress, and actually only tried on one… and had I been looking for a strapless dress, it would have been it. But… I wanted straps and lace. I also wanted some back to it, as I have a lot of moles on my back and wanted them covered. I was able to find that, too!

I was able to find my perfect dress with everything I wanted! I wish I would have added a belt to my dress, but still think it was still great without it.
