Now that the photos are here, its time to do a fashion recap. As you already know, I'm a huge Maggie Sottero fan. Not only because her dresses are fun and stylish, but because they are also relatively budget-friendly. The Maggie Sottero Sabelle was the one of only two wedding dresses that I tried on. I went into the bridal shop knowing what I wanted and walked out with both dresses. The Sabelle for the wedding ceremony and the Sottoro and Midgley Adorae for the reception. (Click Here to view wedding photos of the Sottero and Midgley Adorae wedding gown).
I loved my Sabelle gown. I purchased it in light gold because I've never envisioned myself in a white dress. I love gold..... so why not? It's actually a champagne color, but photographs like ivory. Even though the gown itself looks light gold, I think my momma was so overwhelmed with joy on the wedding day that she didn't even notice that I wasn't wearing a white dress. LOL!
I wore a light gold/champagne veil and blusher, black sky high heels, gold earrings and a gold bracelet. With the intricate beading on the bodice and back, I didn't want to rock a necklace. It worked out great. The dress details stood out and didn't compete with any jewelry.
I rocked an ivory petticoat under the dress which added to the poofy look. In a million years, I would never had imagined myself in a poofy dress. Oh well, I guess its ok to do that for just one day......
Stay tuned if you're in the market for a gently used Maggie Sottero Sabelle gown in light gold. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested. Otherwise it will be up for sale in Boutique Mix's 'Second Time Around Boutique' as soon as I get it back from the cleaners.
My take on the dress? It's not as heavy as people say it is; It fits very well if you get the right size; It is easy to sit (even with a petticoat); It is easy to dance in; It's fun and easy!
