I've posted pics of my dress on the model, but I finally got around to taking some pics of myself in it. I basically need reassurance that this is still the RIGHT dress for me, because I already have it! My dress is Monique Lhuillier's Sahara. When I first tried it on, I couldn't get it out of my head for days and nothing else I tried on compared. I ended up buying the sample, and luckily it's in almost perfect condition! So the dress is physically in my closet right now. It's very flowy and lightweight, made of Chantilly lace, and will be perfect for Mexico. It's a bit too tight for me right now so I'll have to lose a bit of weight (which I'm fine with - I'm actually a bit more than my usual weight right now), and get it altered.
Here is my dress on me and the model:
I had booked this Kleinfield at the Bay appointment months ago when I first heard they were opening. I decided to keep my appointment because it's Kleinfield's and I was dying to see it! The store is gorgeous, ladies! For any of you Toronto ladies that are looking for a dress still, the Kleinfield store really is beautiful and spacious. The dresses are all still very new and in good condition (it's only been open for 2 weeks). My bridal consultant was a sweetheart and we had a blast trying on dresses. There was zero pressure, she made me feel comfortable with my lower budget, and I felt completely fine with her even though I was by myself. They had a really good range of dresses - both style and price.
I was actually really good at not choosing dresses that were way out of my price range (most of them! haha) and I'm very relieved and happy to say that I still love my dress more than the other dresses I tried on today. HOWEVER, there is one other dress that I also love and feel beautiful in. It's also a Monique Lhuillier but her lower priced Bliss line. It's very similar in shape to the one I have, but the fabric is a silk organza. It's also this beautiful light blush colour
Here are the 2 dresses side by side. The one I bought already on the left, and the one I'm kind of second guessing about on the right. This one is still double what I paid for the other one (but less than the original cost would have been) AND I already have my original dress.... so yes, I think I just need reassurance .
