So, what now? Keep looking again? I know exactly what I want. I want simple, but chic. I want a slim A-line, V-neck and straps, a fitted bodice and some ruching on it (it slims out the problem areas, folks). I prefer no (or at least minimal) beading. I want a corset and a train. I prefer satin. Wait, that sounds like Maggie again! Doh!
After browsing through Maggie Sotterro gowns, I found these options:
V-neck, check, straps, check...but a little too A-line? Not thrilled about the beads, Next.
Then there was this lovely dress:
But the empire waist threw me off, and maybe a little too informal.
Then there was this Marilyn gown. Eagerly, I clicked on it to find out more.
But I was disappointed to find this backside view:
Very low back, and not something I'd wear at church. Great on the model, but definitely not on me.
I was getting discouraged until I found this gown.
Not exactly V-neck, but a sweetheart neckline. A-line, with a tad bit of beading on the cap sleeves. I can live with that. There a little brooch on the side and yes, we have a corset back. But the train is a little short for my taste, but I figure I can compensate with a longer veil:
Hmmm...possibly...Life does go on after an ended affair.
