    *bump* i love love LOVE this thread and think it would be a shame for it to go away--hopefully that's not an etiquette faux paux!

    it was so helpful for me to get a feeling for what dresses looked like on real women and how gorgeous everyone was in theirs before i went shopping (this sunday).

    i had a few favorites picked out but was so worried about how i'd look in them versus the model given i'm (a) not size 2 and (B) have hips which none of the models had in any of the style dresses i loved. but the very first dress i tried on, i really loved right off the rack. so now i just have to buck up and buy it

    Anyway, here's the Kittychen Princess tyle dress on the model:

    And here's the dress on yours truly

    of course, since i'm practical to a fault, i can't possibly buy the first dress i try on, so now i have to try 383010101 other dresses to confirm. i'm exhausted just thinking about it!
    The fun starts ... February 22, 2011!

      I think it looks beautiful on you!! I felt the need to try on a bunch of dresses also but ended up with the one I originally thought I would. We're women...shopping around is our perogative just try to stop us!

                  I'm so glad this thread got bumped! I was just looking for it yesterday and couldn't find it. I am going dress shopping next week so maybe I'll be able to post here soon :)

                  islandbride317 - I love your dress, but what I love more than anything is how excited you look to be in it!!! You definitely defeat the model. Mind you, I think with that look on your face you could be wearing a paper bag and rock it!

                  asayle - You look just as good as that model and maybe better!
