I'm still struggling to find 'the' dress. These are the three I'm considering... Thoughts?
The first -
(This is the link for the pic of the front, I can't get it to save to my comp.
I don't like the sash going on under the boobs and around the back (including the brooch), but the shop owner said it could be removed pretty easily. Then it would be a plain lace halter with completely open back. I'm just afraid it would be too plain without the sash, but I really hate it and it would have to go (feel like it looks cheap?).
Likes: the price - a steal for $500!, the open back, the lace.
Dislikes: too plain?, not set on the halter neckline.
The second -
Wouldn't have to alter it, I pretty much like it as is.
Likes: LOVE the neckline - it's exactly what Im looking for, and it looks pretty great on; also love the back, although I'd love it more if it were lower.
Dislikes: The beading on the boobs (surely there is a more appropriate word to be using than "on the boobs" but I dont' know what it is... I don't know dress lingo, sorry!!) - from far away, the beading is fine, but upclose it's these weird little papery flower things that look cheap to me. Also it's not lace, and I really was hoping for a lace gown.
3. The third - my fav!
(Again, can't get the pic of the back to save correctly... so here's the link! The back's the best part!
Likes: love the lace pattern, love the silhouette, love the back.
Dislikes: a little out of my price range, but only by a few hundred dollars... and I haven't actually tried it on yet, but have an appt in January!)
