Hey everyone! Sorry I've been so absent as of late, we've been moving. But I had to update you guys. I went to a Vera Wang salon today and I bought my dress! It's a sample (about half the store was samples on sale 30% off). So, I got to bring it home with me. Wasn't planning on that, but hey, why not! I was lucky that they carried some smaller samples, but it's still a size too big, though I'm sure alterations will take care of that (at least I hope, I'm a little worried about it). It had straps too, but I tucked them in. It's a silk taffeta with an organza overlay on the bottom flare part. So, anyway...here ya go: My Dress!!! (I'm so excited!)

Thanks SO much everyone! I am so excited! I was kinda at that point where dress shopping was no longer fun...but I just hadn''t found a dress that I didn''t want to change in at least 3 or 4 places. It feels so nice to be done! And your kind words really help...I have to admit that I was nervous over such a large purchase and choosing the *right* dress.

BTW, here''s the dress from the Vera Wang website: I don''t like the straps on her at all (actually, maybe it''s just her...she is disgustingly thin...eww!)

Wow, that dress is beautiful! It looks a thousand times better on you than on the model, on her it''s all washed out, dingy and floppy. I''m sure some simple alterations will make your dress fit perfectly, I had mine taken in a size and it all went fine. I do like the neckline with the straps, just because it''s a little different, but in your pics I couldn''t even tell there were supposed to be straps. What a cool dress. Congratulations!

Thanks!

Blushing - we need pics! Which one is it on the website?

AND, this is another pic, specifically for the PS folk...see my new earring? Hehe.

No - I don''t think it''s from 2007, but my friend that works there is finding out for me. All the dresses I liked there were mermaid, trumpet and modified A-line (which is what mine is) so you and I have the same taste!

Actually the one that I originally had my heart set on, was a strapless scoop-neck mermaid with draped bustline, raffia sash and eyelet skirt. Did that have that one on sale where you live or did you happen to try it on??? I LOVED it!

Ditto to what Dee*Jay said- that dress looks like it was made for you! You have the perfect figure to pull off a mermaid style gown! I agree that it looks great on you without the straps...like mercoledi, I couldn''t even tell from your pics that there were supposed to be straps! You look gorgeous!

She is disgustingly thin LOL!! She has absolutely no breasts to fill out the top half. I think you could go with or without straps, it would look lovely either way. I would take some pictures both ways and look at those instead of in the mirror. It will help you give some perspective of how it really looks in person.

Facet, I LOVE the dress without straps!! LOVE IT! You are going to look fabulous when it''s fitted to you. I mean, you already look amazing, and it''s clipped! So jealous!

I did see that one, but it wasn''t part of their sample sale. I almost tried it on...but the eyelet skirt, though GORGEOUS, wasn''t the look I was going for. I loved the sash though!

Thanks again for the kind words and the opinions, everyone! I''m defnitely having the straps removed, though I was surprised that I kinda liked them...I didn''t expect to.
