I LOVE this dress. It was the dress of my dreams and I couldn’t have been happier to wear it! I felt like I was in a fairy tale and I was complimented on it all night long. While I love everything about the dress, the back is my favorite part.
I tried this dress on at multiple stores but none of them could get me the right size before my wedding. I finally found a store just outside of Boston that would commit to having the dress in time. I bought the dress new and picked it up the first week in June for our June 14 wedding.
Allure sells this dress in three color ways: White, Ivory, Ivory/Café. This is the Ivory/Café (in my opinion, the prettiest!).
The dress is a size 6 (for reference, I am a consistent J. Crew size 4), Allure lists there sizes this way:
Size Bust Waist Hips
2 32 23½ 35½
4 33 24½ 36½
6 34 25½ 37½
8 35 26½ 38½
PS: I’ve included two pictures of me wearing the dress, you’ll see that I’m outside standing on a deck. I did not leave the deck or the inside of the venue in the dress! So while I did wear the dress “outside” it was never on the bare ground. That might be too nitpicky, but it’s something I’d want to know!!
This dress made me so happy (and still does!!) I hope it can do the same for someone else!
