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

 

 

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

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:

 

DR183

Ilyssa

 

 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!

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