- Wedding: May 2011 - Bartram's Garden
Okay, so I’ve narrowed my options down to three (possibly four, but I haven’t tried the 4th one on yet so for now we’ll concentrate on three).
Dress #1 is one I actually own. It’s a prom dress from David’s that I got for a STEAL. If I wear this, I’ll remove the sash and straps and have the bustline altered into a more flattering sweetheart shape. (If I don’t wear this to the wedding, I’ll shorten it and wear it to the after party).
This is it on the 12 year-old model:
Dress #2 is the Margeaux by Jenny Yoo. It’s actually a bridesmaid dress but it comes in white. Unfortunately, the store I went to only had it in purple, but I’m going to their NYC flagship tomorrow to try it on in white. Until then, here it is in purple. I had to lighten the photo a bit in Photoshop so that you could see the detail. And it was way too small, so imagine that it actually fits.
This is it in white:
Dress #3 is by Aria. This one was way too big and I was also braless in this photo. So please ignore how it looks on, It’s still a very simple, pretty dress.
And this is the dress on the model.
So, I ask of you: if all the dresses actually FIT me correctly, which one would you like the best?

I like the Aria dress the best and I think it would be the most flattering on you.

I dig the Aria. I think it looks best on you. Plus it has pockets – too cool!

I will be the first to say I really like the second one the best on you for sure. The material seems much more flattering on you and the shape itself. In fact, I REALLY like it on you.

I have to agree on number TWO looking most flattering. I don’t like the material on the Aria. I don’t even like that dress on the model. I think two will look the best in white or ivory.

Dress number two looks the better and really seems to flatter you. I do like dress number 3, but I don’t like the material.

I like the 2nd. The third is a bit too shiny.

I agree with the second dress. It looks wonderful!

I think the Jenny Yoo is most flattering on you… I really like the flowy fabric. And I agree that you should shorten the original dress and wear it elsewhere (like your rehearsal dinner)! 🙂
