I bought this dress to take pictures on the beach prior to my wedding day, and didn't want FI to see me in my dress for the ceremony. We've changed our minds and aren't doing pics before at all now. This dress is brand new, with tags and has never been altered. It's a strapless chiffon gown with a sweetheart neckline. It's beautiful lace up back allows for size discrepancies. I'm a size 8, however this dress is a 12 and fits me beautifully. My wedding is in July and I would love to give this dress a new home before I tie the knot!
