I already put together one of these boards for Dress 2, so here is Dress 3.
I tried on this dress in white, but I would definitely get it in ivory. I like the look of the back better than that of Dress 2. And the "bling" on the waist is starting to grow on me. (Oh crap, I'm starting to convince myself that this is the dress!)
I'm not sure if this is the exact jewelry I would want to wear, but I definitely think a low neck like this one needs some kind of pendant necklace, and it'd be fun to put "something blue" into my jewelry, without going as dark as sapphire. I haven't found what I'd like to wear on my wrists, yet, if anything.
I think the lace in the two bridesmaid dresses complements the lace in the wedding dress, and, as before, I would let my bridesmaids choose their black shoes in the interest of saving them money and letting them be comfortable.
And the clutch? Well, that's just darn cute. The girls may find themselves gifted with Jessica McClintock clutches if I go with these dresses.
