    We went shopping yesterday for the first time and it was definitely a ton of fun

    We went to the first store and tried on quite a few dresses, however I loved the third dress I tried on. I was too nervous to commit that early in the say so we went to 2 other dress stores. Didn't like anything at the 2nd, but at the third store, they had the same dress I loved however in a different colour & style of back. I tried it on and then for sure it was "the one".

    I ended up ordering it yesterday! Now to wait the 5-6 months for it to come into the store!!!! It was a little bit over budget, but so worth it. It was Essence of Australia D586 in white with a corset back It's beautiful and fits my style perfectly.

    Here are some pictures of the dress I tried on. It was ivory but I wanted it in white. The last picture is blurry but oh well! LOL

              That's exactly how I found my dress too! It was the 3rd dress I tried on (picked out by my best friend) but felt it was too soon to commit to a dress... then after going to a few more stores and hating everything else (and continually referring to the 3rd dress as 'my' dress) I knew it was the one!
              It's such a great feeling to find your dress, congrats!! It's beautiful on you!

              Are you going to add the cap sleeves shown on the model or stay strapless?

                I think I love yours bc the back and bottom are very similar to mine! Love Love Love the corset back!

                  I'm staying with the strapless version :)

                  I couldn't believe I had found it so easily so I just kept looking around but yet compared everything back to "The pretty lace dress". My mom knew then that it was pointless to keep looking, we tried on the dress again, and the rest is history!

                  My favourite features are the fabric under the bust, the corset back and the lace details. I'm short so it is going to be a fairly expensive alteration to bring up the detail from the lace and save it, but its sooo worth it.

                  I love simple elegance and thankfully my mom, sister (MOH) and aunt all said it was 100% a "Lisa Dress". I can't wait until it is in!
