    I think the 2nd one (Austin) by a mile. I think it just doesn’t look as good here because it isn’t fitted properly and it’s also lost some of it’s shape (the austin usually looks a bit fuller than this). I think once you add your accessories and a stunning veil you will look TO DIE FOR in the Austin. The first dress looks a bit like a prom dress to me and no where near as elegant. 2nd for the win!


    Here are some photos showing how gorgeously full the Austin is new. (drool)

    I thought the second straight away , but seeing lamingtons pics makes me absolutely sure . 

    The first  one looks definitely  promlike/dance recital ish to me, pretty though it is . .

    I actually love them both on you, but they are very similar dresses. I will warn you though, that even though the bodice may not feel like it when you have it on for fittings/alterations, the beading will irritate your armpits/arms (I know from experience). It’s not bad, but toward the end of the night they were definitely red and little raw from rubbing up against beads and crystals all night!

    I love the second one for you the simplicity and beauty of the clean lines lets -your- beauty shine! You don’t have to rely on beading when -you- sparkle.

    I voted for the first one – I think it looks stunning on you!

    ETA: ooh, I just read a PP’s concerns of the sequins scratching you throughout the night; I had a dress with a similar bodice and she’s totally right; I literally had to put Polysporin on my scratches the next day. Definitely take that into consideration!
