I fell in love with how comfortable and lightweight this Lea Ann Belter dress feels. And the lace keyhole back is just the feminine/vintage style that I wanted!!! However, we’ve decided to do a small, casual wedding on the beach and I found another dress that fits the event better. I hope that another bride will love this one as much as I did!!!
The dress retails for over $3000, but I got a really great deal.
I believe that it is missing a couple of eyehole hooks to secure the lace at the back of the neck. To ensure the lace lies flat on your back, I think the hooks would need to be specifically placed to accommodate each persons figure anyways. This should be a very easy thing to add.
Description of the dress from the Lea Ann Belter site:
“Carolina is a lovely silk dupioni gown. Featuring flattering princess seams that fall into inverted box pleats. Beautiful French alencon lace covers the bust to the empire with lace sleeves that open into a stunning key hole back. The lace is delicately beaded with Swarovski crystals and real fresh water pearls.”
I believe it is Lea Ann Belter’s “off-white” shade, not really a full ivory.
