I got this dress about a week ago from Clarisse to review, and I have to say I am absolutely in LOVE. If any of you have ever read any of my pattern reviews, or just my blog in general, you know I am a bit OCD and a crazy perfecionist. I am super knit-picky about my clothes, too. I want stuff that looks good, but I also want to feel comfortable wearing them.
I have always loved strapless dresses, but they don't really love me... See I have a really, really small chest, so I absolutely must wear a miracle bra or something to that nature. The problem is, try finding a strapless bra with padding that doesn't look weird!!!! But this dress has a REALLY good bra built in already. I mean, like a really good one! It's not padded, but it looks really nice and is super comfortable. I have always been really self conscious about that so for me to be able to put on a dress with no bra and feel comfortable is saying a lot!!
But then, I wondered how a lady who was a little more blessed then me in that area would feel in the dress, so I asked my sister, Kristen, who is the same size as me, only seems to have gotten my share, to try it on and see what she thought. She absolutely loved it. She is the one who is almost never happy with the way she looks...although, I can't imagine why because she's got a body like a VS model, but I guess that's the way we women are sometimes...Anyway, she could not stop smiling and looking in the mirror. She was kicking herself for having already bought a homecoming dress....she really, really loved it.
So, I have to say I was very pleased with this dress. The construction was phenomenal, the cut and design are awesome (I have NO waist since having 3 babies, but this dress makes me look like I do!), and it is waaayyy comfortable! I was wearing it for over an hour while taking these pics with music playing, and I was dancing around to Luke Bryan's new cd...love it, btw....and I felt comfortable the whole time!
The shipping was also super fast, and the fit was very true to their size chart. My other sister, Adriana, was also in love with it! She is already swooning over their other dresses, looking for something for her next pageant or to wear when she goes to other pageants as a visiting queen!
Here are a few of the other designs, I am swooning over from them....

I love this one that is sort of a longer version of mine. I especially love the animal print!
I love everything about this one! The colors, the design, everything! I would wear this to brunch or to go shopping! I am sooo in love with it!
Now if I ever do start doing Ms. pageants...which I have been seriously considering because it's something I always wanted to do, but didn't have the confidence for when I was a teenager...this is my dress!
Well or maybe this one...One of the girl's in Adriana's pageant was wearing the blush version and it just moves beautifully!
And if I win....I'm wearing this when I go somewhere as visiting queen!
Hey! A girl can dream right! ; )
Stay tuned for part 2 where I will tell you all about how I broke my poor camera while taking my pics for this post...my hubby was not too happy with me!
