I bought this San Patrick Rivoli and loved it at the time. I bought the sample so I've had it since the day I found it. A month later I started getting dress regret and feeling nervous I paid a lot of money for something I wouldn't end up liking. I bought this belt for around $50 from Glory's House and hoped it would work since I was NOT going to spend $300 on a darn belt! I tried on the dress again with the belt last night and realized that I was being silly and LOVED my dress! I think I love it more now than the day I bought it!
For you all that are having second thoughts, go try on your dress again! I'm sure you will love it just as much as I did the second time!
You look stunning.
When I went dress shopping, I had the thought of a light flowy beachy dress as I thought that what I 'should' wear. After trying on dozen, they just did not suit me.. I looks terrible in them! So.. I tried on a dress that I loved from seeing it in books and on TV, and fell in love with it. It not Beachy at all as far as Im concerned... but I ordered it. For months I thought.. "what did I do!" but when the dress came in and I went for my fittings I was relieved to still love it as much as the first time I tried it on.. if not more!
Its your day, and you should get to wear what you want and what you feel beautiful in, whether is a poofy Ball-Gown, slinky sheath of lacey vintage!
DW are not the norm.. anything goes in my opinion!
