My DREAM dress would be a Monique Lhuillier or Galia Lahav (first two photos, respectively) buttttt I’m not in a position to wear something that costs as much as my car. Within the realm of possibility, Justin Alexander 8873 was my dream, but still a bit high in price point (the shop I ordered my dress from didn’t even carry it – they don’t carry anything over $2K)  – so I went with this Essense of Australia that checked all my boxes and makes me feel beautiful! I have no regrets whatsoever.

Fell in love with this dress before I got engaged!!! I just loved the gorgeous architecture.  It’s so simple but it’s not!  And so sexy!! Just bought it at Kleinfelds a couple weeks ago, but in ivory!

brereuther :  I love what you have far more than the dresses you dreamed of (though it’s quite similar to the one above)

2 years later, dress shopping it was a serious toss up between Allure 9275
