I love that dress! So so cute and looks perfect for a rehearsal! How lucky you are a 4 and found your dress!!

As for shoes .... maybe a light colored (nude) peep toe? Or maybe a metallic strappy?

I'm not sure because you don't want to get anything busy to compete the absolute adorableness of this dress.

JCrew

zappos - nine west

maybe these will help?

I can understand why you''re so excited! I have been lusting over a dress very similar to the one by BCBG as well. Actually, it might be the same dress! I never knew what the official name of it was.

I love it! So happy for you to find such a great deal.

I swear you contradict me just to irritate me sometimes.

I would do gold, but I wouldn''t cross off any other colors except maybe black....

I still think a mechanic sandal would be fab.

WHO ME????? I would never.
I just like pink and purple so I suggest them for everything!

p.s. I''d probably wear black shoes with it. I love yellow and black together, as long as they aren''t in stripes like a bumble bee.

YES YOU. And you do suggest pink and purple for everything.

I was thinking about black shoes, but only with a bunch of black accessories.

Maybe a turquoise or a teal would look good?

OMG i love you all! I am soooo excited. And I definitly want help with the shoes. I am SO happy i was able to get this dress and I want the outfit to be perfect.
Im thinking "less is more" as the dress in it of itself is to die for.
So i was thinking "maybe" a necklace but maybe not.
Strappy sandels, not too busy. So...............what color?
send me some ideas, i like the gold idea, OF COURSE Freke is always spot on. but im not closed to other ideas too.
I would have done turquoise or a teal necklace and shoes IF i had gotten it in white but with the yellow im thinking no.

I am a freckle girl and have short short hair, Im going tanning (i know i know) so i will be tan and more freckley for the rehersal - which is another reason im so excited for the yellow. : ) as I actually do get tan and more freckles that blend in and make the tan look even darker


So, any shoes you find that you think would go and with or WITHOUT necklace would be great! photoshopped next to pic of the dress would be even cooler.
I would prefer under $75 or so for shoes.

IM SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO EXCITED! i honestly NEVER thought i would be able to get this dress, 398 for a dress is SOOO NOT ME! YAY!

Oh, I love this dress too! I think a couple ladies on here have either worn it, or tried to get their hands on it for their RD. I agree with Freke that a metallic gold shoe would look great! Can''t wait to see pics.

The dress looks lovely - I think the yellow is beautiful too, definitely something you can get a lot of additional wear out of!

I am SO bad, I just bought the last one in Size 4! (but I''m not too bad, really, because it was a REALLY good price) and I can wear it for my rehearsal dinner and a wedding I am going to next month too. What luck to have read your thread this morning!

It think gold would be great. I just bought these strappy gold sandals by Guess for my wedding dress, but they might be better for this dress!

I did indeed! I wore it in the 'white' (cream) color.

Here's a pic! Great dress, but not forgiving in terms of stretch, so don't gain any weight!



ETA: I havne't tried it on since the wedding because I know i've gained weight so I'm scared to see how much when it doesnt actually fit AT ALL.

Wow that dress is gorgeous! Violet you look beautiful in it! I can't wait to see yours IRL ILPC.

I'd love it for a DW I'm going to in summer...can you girls tell me something about the fit - I'm a 6 but have a relatively large chest (D) would the dress fit? It looks on the model like it would be much prettier on a smaller chest

There's no BCBG stores near me to try it on.

Violet, thanks for posting your pic, do you have any more? ???? I can''t wait til it arrives! how was the fit on you, did you get your "normal" size??
Porridge, I wonder aboout the chest too, i actually wear a size 4 pants, BUT i bought the dress in a 6 because im a 34D and was afraid the bust would not fit. Im hoping the 6 will work and that the waist wont be too big. if it is - i''ll bring it to my alterations lady for help. Look on ebay and do google searches for the dress! you''ll find it at a great price if you want.
