    I was all for getting a big poofy ball gown. In particular I love the Disney Snow White one. It was awful!

    @OnceUponATime:  Beautiful dress but yes it swallows you.

    As for my dream dress I just tried it on today. I hunted down this dress calling every shop in the state and finally finding one that had a sample. They were even having a sample sale! So I tried on this dress today even though I had already purchased a dress hoping that I would maybe hate it and couldnlet go of this dress that was more than I wanted to pay for…and when I walked out of the dressing room I cried. I knew I couldn’t let this one go.No idea why it keeps posting sideways. I tried rotating but it won’t fix it…..

    I fell in love with the photos of Alfred Angelo 2300, then showed my Mum to which she replied “That’s a Mollie dress”, then tried it on and almost had Mum and myself in tears. Stunning in photos and I felt like a princess with it on!

    I fell in love with the picture, carried it around on my phone for weeks. Then found the only store that stocked it is right around the corner from my house! They had a sample in my size and I fell in love…

    So this almost became my dream dress and if I went with what the picture was I would never have even tried it on 


    I found this dress to be extremely flattering on me!!!

    @theone99:  That’s my dress too! I was convinced I wanted a dress with cap sleeves or straps and very plain – I’m quite top heavy and was not expecting to like any strapless dresses. The Augusta Jones Juno was literally the only strapless dress I clipped a picture of. It was the second dress I tried on and I knew instantly it was the one (of course I had to try about a dozen others first before I parted with the cash!) I ended up getting a custom bolero made from the same lace which I adored as I could transform it from day (with bolero) to evening.

    I didn’t vote because I haven’t picked a dress yet. However I loved the 2011 Alfred Angelo Belle dress (#206)

    It has been the only dress I have tried on and I loved it on me ๐Ÿ™‚ I don’t think it’s ‘the one’ though

    @theone99:  Oh, by the way, be careful with your bustle. The Juno has a lot of layers and so you’ll probably need quie a complicated bustle. I had ties for the “underneath” layers (worked just fine) and then the tulle and lace layers were bustled with a popper. This did not hold up at all – the tulle and lace are actually quite heavy (with the lace trim and appliqué) and it kept coming “unpopped”! Eventually my husband got fed up with it interfering with dancing and used a bunch of safety pins to pin it to the back of the belt. Not glamorous or attractive at all but it did the job! I hope you enjoy wearing it!
