My dress is diamond white..but it’s Maggie Sottero. To me, it looks like plain ol’ white. However when I tried on dresses at the salon I asked them to show me a white dress and a diamond white dress side by side. The diamond white looked more ivory when right next to it…but when it’s on it’s own I just see white. They say not to get “white” white because it looks good on very few skin tones. When I went into it, I wanted “white” white, but my diamond white dress looks white enough for me!!

Diamond White has a bit of a pearl sheen to it, where White is just that. So, the Diamond White will look slightly less white than White. It will look a touch warmer, more elegant, and flattering. Yellow shoes would definitely work with Diamond White! 🙂

It’s funny that you said that about alabastor!  I am also going to be wearing Sohpia Tolli.  I always loved ivory, but I never would have thought about going a shade darker than that – until I tried on the sample.  I agree completely – it made the dress feel “vintage,” which is the look I am going for! But you’re right…I don’t think it would go with yellow.  I don’t know much about white or diamond white, but I am sure that either one will be fine with yellow.  Either way, they’re both “white” so I think you’d be fine with either.

Love the dress, btw!
