So the BHLDN gown was lovely - it really was but there was something that was amiss about it on me, like I was trying too hard to be glamourous. If I were Dita Von Teese it would have been perfect - she can pull off that forced dramatic thing of hers. Me? simple and simpler.
This is what I chose in the end. A lovely little frock by Jenny Yoo. Do you know Yoo? darling little store in LA. Brilliant customer service. If I were doing bridesmaids...it would have been more brilliant - those colors of hers!
plus? the long lets me wear a flat sandal for that pesky back of mine and no one has to be the wiser.
