Possible Gowns


Fave designers: Pnina Tornai, St. Pucchi, Demetrios, Reem Acra, Stephen Yearick, Bagdley Mischka, Kenneth Pool



Goal: find a dress that is beaded and "fierce"!



I heart this dress:

 Pnina for Kleinfields

NLLH (Kleinfelds site)











Pnina pros:  beadwork is amazing! the detail is amazing! the dresses are so unique looking and so glam


Pnina cons: the obvious - the hefty pricetag....


Demetrious dresses I like:





 Dem 1328



I tried on the 183 and the Ilyssa and a variety of others at the store in Macy's Tysons Corner.


Demetrios Pros: dresses have beading, store has variety, some aren't as heavy as others I've tried, price is very reasonable


Demetrios Cons: the beading on many dresses looks like plastic and doesn't sparkle like crystals


Kenneth Pool dresses:







My fave KP so far:





Pros of KP: great beadwork, great fit, love the shiny material


Cons of KP: can't find him in DC! Hitched is no longer carrying him!


Lazaro dresses:










Bagdley Mischka:





Jane Wang:










Alvina Valenta:

Reem Acra


Sunburst - the dress I might have bought if I didn't buy Pnina; the beading on this dress, especially the train is just gorgeous:
