Strapless Tea-Length Gown with Cap Sleeve Shrug Style 9T9948
I loved this dress in store and how it hung on me but my wedding was at city hall and it was perfect for that except the jacket was really uncomfortable and if you will be driving or sitting at all the beads all over it kinda schaffe (sp). I also bought my own sash in champagne for it. All in all I love it and don't regret the purchase.

Love this dress!
When I first saw this dress online I knew it was going to be the dress I purchased. I absolutely adore it! It is so flattering on me. I'm having my seamstress turn the jacket into a cap sleeve so I can be a little more comfortable (I didn't like the way the jacket kept moving).

Had been to a more upscale boutique earlier in the day and was trying on sample sizes that barely fit. On the way home, stopped at David's Bridal (the one place I said I was absolutely NOT going to go...) under the pressure of my mother. (This really isn't a bad review!!!) Was seen in a snap by a consultant. Since we're having a very informal wedding, I really wanted a tea length dress and the ones that I had been looking at online were way out of budget. She told me that they had two in the store that were in my budget and showed me both in the magazine. So, she brought all kinds of dresses and I tried on the long gowns first.....Nope. Of course mom liked them, but not me. Last dress I tried on was this one. LOVED IT! Looked exactly like a dress I saw online that I had fallen in love with but at a price that wouldn't break the bank! I can't wait for it to come in so I can go shoe shopping to find the shoes to match my sash color!!

Growing on Me
After trying on dresses that made me look like I was squeezing out of the top out of a white volcano, I tried this one on. Although the model is leaning forward that is about where the dress falls. There is lining and tulle underneath. The top has boning and it pushes down on your waist so you get an extra bump on your hip (not want we really want). Make sure you get the sash that comes with it. If I hadn't mentioned it I probably wouldn't have received it. You can't really tell in the picture but there are small "crystals" sewn in clusters on the dress.
Bolero - I am a bit mixed on this part of the dress. It doesn't exactly fall on the smallest part of your arm and I already feel like a line backer.
With all of that said, I do like this dress. Originally thought I would wear my hair down but I think hair up would be more flattering.
