No Bradens are allowed to see this post. Nope. Nu-uh. Not at all. Go away Braden. No reading. No looking at the pictures. Nothing.
So, my sample dress from Isadora Clothing arrived while I was out of town, and I picked it up Monday. I opened the box to find that the sample was peach and lighter peach and winced. Seriously, those are my two least favorite colors to wear, because they just don’t…blargh. Then, when I unfurled it, it was the wrong cut…I asked for the sassy cut, and got the straight hem. Still, at least it gave me an idea of what was going on. My Chicago wedding cabal helped me out with trying it on, since Sara has experience with convertible dresses and Heather was around.
So, you can’t really tell, but there is a petticoat under there. The fabric for the dress was really, really heavy. The petticoat really couldn’t compete with it, and it was all but useless for volume. Sara pointed out though that it would look really great when I’m spinning on the dance floor though, and I think she’s right about that. The other thing she mentioned is that the tube top that comes with the dress is sort of not…a good idea. I’m Tia. Cleavage is sort of what I do. But my one strapless bra is a straight line on the top, so most of the pictures have the tube top.
Here, we pulled the dress up to right under my boobs, so you can see a bit of the petticoat. I like that this style shows both tattoos, but I don’t know how I feel about how very round my boobs are here.
I like the more sweetheart neckline here, and would like it better without the tube top, I think.
Same design, from the back.
I think this was my favorite thing Sara came up with. The crazy stuff in the middle where the straps loop around each other just creates such a pretty little area of interest. Also, the back crossing again keeps both tattoos visible. :3
Obligatory strapless design. For a non-cleavage design, I really like the texture on the top.
I…don’t know how I feel about this dress. I was sort of expecting to get it and fall madly in love and want to send my money to them right away, but I’m hesitant. I wish it was in the right colors, or has the right length. I need some help ladies: the end result would be in brown and lime, with lime being the prominent color. If you can envision it, give it to me straight. Will I like it? Will I $225 like it? Uuuugh I don’t want to make decisions guys. Especially not expensive decisions.
