Is this a two-piece outfit or a dress? The skirt fits you better than the top. However! Holy smokes, what a gorgeous piece! I love the SHINY texture and the iridescent blue/purple! A dream indeed! You look lovely, Ally (also, good call on the shoes!).
It's a two-piece and, yes, it's too tight. Way too tight. The gown is size 10 and I'm 16. I could never wear it in real life but didn't want to pass up the opportunity to play with it here. Some compromise is necessary for me.
Funky.. its like a dress version of the mermaid outfit all shimmery. It looks fun and I would wear that skirt on its own with other tops as well. I agree with Sheila, the skirt fits you perfectly!! Looking fun as always :)
Lovely! One of my favourite colours too :)
you look like a princess! by the way, how would you call the color? I'd like to remember the name just in case :)
In person, it looks purple; here it looks blue. It's somewhere between purple and blue, depending on what it's seen next to.
Shimmery and beautiful - there's a story behind this dress : > Lovely necklace too. xoxPattihttp://notdeadyetstyle.com
I like the sort of cape effect over the shoulders- I always wanted a dress like that- so pretty and feminine!!! x
I do love the colour, skirt and the necklace. I wish the top fit a bit better. I can see how this dress could transport you to far away lands though : ) bisousSuzanne
My stage work has been limited, but once upon a time we fitted a size xx into a size x bodice by opening the side seams and entirely replacing the back panel with a velvet as close a match to the front satin we could manage. (These sopranos gotta breathe!) Having spent so little on such a grand gown, one might poke the top in a bag and hie thee to a fabric shop, or find an alterations lady and let her do the hieing. For that matter, Ally, try dreaming about what you could have if you learned to sew! Like Vix!
I did attempt some battlefield alteration on this, just to enable my large chest to fit into it.
I love that fabric. Shiny!
I like the colour, and what a deal!FT Anniversary
Wow...that is a truly stunning color! I'm so in love with the way the skirt is made. Beautiful.Debbiewww.fashionfairydust.com
I love that material!
The dress is gorgeous ... but let's not forget the shoes!!!!
Wow, this is seriously a princess dress. My mom had an old bridesmaid dress from the 80s that I used to play dress up in when I was little. It was this color and I LOVED it!
What a stunning colour! It's one of my favourite blues and it suits you well! xoxo
Oh my word, it really is! What an enchanting, fit-for-royalty frock. Awesome find!♥ Jessica
you need to be at an elegant winter affair in this, ally!!
It is! I love the iridescence and the lovely shape of it! I hope it takes you to an elegant affair this season!xx, Ellehttp://www.theellediaries.com/blog
It is indeed a beautiful two piece gown. Love the flow of the skirt. And (very smart) it shows of your beautiful shoulders again. Good look on you. Beth's advice how to alter the size to fit sounds really smart.Greetje
This is straight out of a beautiful dream. The way the light hits it...gorgeous. So is the shape. Reminds me of a Milani eyeshadow I have too. When I show it to kiddo, she is gonna FLIP.
