OK. Yesterday I saw this dress on LolitaLover and today I saw it on this post on Egl. I think it is calling out to me.
I fell in love with it the very instant I saw it. The color, and fabric, and small decorative ruffles, and sweet heart top, and everything else is just perfect. I have to say that I am super bummed out that I did not come up with this design.
I hopped onto the Candy Violet shop to see how much it was and almost fell over when I saw the price, $500! Eeeeeeeeek. Having a Bachelors in Fashion Design I can usually understand the pricing of most dresses but I feel this particular one is a bit much. I have to guess that a large chunk of the price has to come from the price of the fabric alone. On the page I could not find what kind of fabric it was so I can't say but I hope it is very nice. The only thing that I don't like is the back. It is very plain compared to the rest of the dress.
I love it so much but I also do not have $500 to burn so I think I might make my own. Perhaps I will add a few of my own ideas and make a few adjustments but I need this dress in one form or another. I think I will add ruffles to the back of the skirt, in a swirly pattern along the bottom of the skirt. Here are more pictures of the amazing dress in all of its glory. Enjoy!
