Yay or Nay Wednesday

By admin on May 2nd, 2007 5 comments

I wonder what you’ll think of this gown. It’s a pretty thing with neat straps, a straight neckline and embroidered bodice with a high waist trimmed in a cute bow. Featuring lace appliques throughout the slim sheath spills into a chapel length train. I like it, but do you? Yay or Nay and why?

Last week I asked you, or rather guilted you into commenting, about a puffy silk taffeta gown in an unusual shade. Was I surprised that it got a unanimous ‘nay’? Not really. Special thanks go to Francy for actually trying it on and for Gemma christening it ‘chocolate lumpy-bumpy pie’. And whilst we’re at it, good luck with exams Lulu! ‘Sevruga’ is from Ian Stuart.

    I don’t like the bow and I lace on the train reminds me of an ’80’s lace and sequin nightmare. I think it has to be a Nay just for those reasons, which is a shame as I like the main dress.

    Nay. Lace and train together make it too much. If it didn’t have lace on top or if it didn’t have such a fussy train, then it would have been very nice. This way it feels as if the designer tried to tick all the “bridal dress” attributes on his list.

    I think it’s Pronovias (and if it is) I’ve tried it on. It’s actually loads more subtle than it looks here, a really beautiful gown. Lace and trains is kinda their signature. Anyway, I like it!

  • I like this one, she is just standing funny, lol. I don’t like the bow at the empire waistline, I would have left that off

    I’m with Sarah; I like the lace and train. I’m trying to figure out how the straps work, though: do they loop around from the back? The strap on the left looks like it’s circling her armpit and not at all attached to the front of the dress. Maybe it’s just the picture… In any case, a yay here!
