Seafoam green with ivory floral appliqué. Strapless. Empire waist. Front pleat. Smocked back. Pure silk; lining, acetate. Made in the USA.
Originally $250 but I got it on sale for $48 @ NM. Since I’m pregnant, this dress REALLY was fit for me because of the gathering elastic in the back, which allows me to get in and out fairly easily. Also, the empire waist gives proper allowance for my growing stomach, so I know I’ll be able to wear this during and even post pregnancy. The material is great; it’s not flimsy or cheap looking, but there’s a slight sheen to it, almost like Filipino barongs that are thicker in material.
Overall, I got so many compliments that night…even ones that mentioned I didn’t look pregnant at all…but the dress got GREAT reviews. The color is also fitting for my caramel complexion. It was a comfortable dress to wear, without me having to worry about my body…which is usually a problem of mine. More realistic pictures of the dress below.
