Calla Lily Dress
Beautiful, Versatile Dress
This dress is gorgeous. I have been coveting it for months and finally decided to buy it since it has been on sale for a while, and I got worried that it would run out. The skirt sticks out on the sides a little more than expected, but I think a good steam or press will fix that. It looks great at a 3/4 degree angle. The skirt will be great for dancing!
I normally wear about a size 8-10 depending on the brand, bought an 8 and it fits well. A little snug in the hips, but everything is snug in the hips for me. The textured lace is lovely and very unique. It looks phenomenal with my vintage layered necklaces or my vintage cameo locket.
I went with a long dress for my ceremony and small afternoon reception, but my fiancee and I are hosting a larger after-party with cocktails, and I plan to wear this to that event.
I think this dress would make a great wedding dress for summer or an afternoon ceremony! (If I had found it first, I might not have even bought my long dress.) It looks great with bold, colorful accessories or simple, traditional vintage-looking ones. I'll be pairing it with a jewel-toned cardigan, personally.

I have been looking at this dress for a while. I wanted something to wear to my wedding rehearsal that was different in style from my wedding gown. This dress mixes the mermaid style with a short, flirty look that was exactly what I wanted. When it went on sale, I ordered it... and I couldn't be happier with it! It fits very true to size and the fabric is very nice. I added a beaded sash around the waist, but it looks great without it as well.
