    I like it too! I think I would also remove the straps (just my opinion) and def get it taken in so it fits you better. Can't beat the price!! Yay, mom, for finding it!

      $15 is such a steal. That would make for a great TTD dress. Some alterations and it would be perfect! I would go without the halter as well.

        Great find!
        I think it will look great after it is taken in. I also like the straps on, but it would look nice both ways.

            I like it, especially for $15. Go for it, it's just to trash it anyhow!!
            Have fun with it!!

              I like it and you cannot beat the price. I would have the dress altered for a closer fit and try it without the straps. Either way, it's perfect for your TTD pictures.

                  I agree with Lori! I'd make it strapless as well, and have it taken in. What a steal if it actually works out!

                    I say go for it! I was actually liking the straps in the beginning (was trying to picture it after it's taken in), but it's really pretty strapless as well. It's a great deal for a TTD.

                      Yeah, I think I'll get it taken in and then decide about the straps later...

                      It actually photographs pretty well. Atleast I have that checked off my list (for now!)
                      Since I'm wearing a birdcage veil during the ceremony, I think I'll get a veil with this gown.

                      Thanks for everyone's words of encouragement.
