Shutter pleat dresses are gorgeous, but BEWARE, they are in every store
Back from Las Vegas...the rehearsal dinner and wedding were gorgeous, and it was great to visit with old friends. Saw the Beatles 'Love' Cirque d' Soleil show and 'Jersey Boys.' Highly recommend both!! Before I comment on LV shopping, I have a public service alert for sure, so you too don't have to live your worst nightmare.
Girlfriend to girlfriend, I feel it my duty to warn you about THE dress. Shutter pleats are the latest thing, so feminine, and surprisingly slimming. This is a great new look, and not terribly expensive, so you might be tempted to buy one.
The nightmare is that they are in every department store: Tadashi makes it, as well Adriana Papelle and various other designers. We saw it in Bloomingdales, Macy's, Dillards, etc etc. It came in moss green, light green, gold, khaki, eggplant, a shimmery gun metal grey, black and raspberry.
How would you feel if someone had on your same dress at a nice wedding? Then think about how you would feel if there were FOUR of them! Yes, there were...not two, not three, but FOUR ladies wearing it at the Las Vegas wedding I attended this weekend. The fourth lady would not get in my picture!! She was so horrified, she avoided each of her twins, which was hard to do when there are four on one dance floor!!
The rest of the weekend, at the hotels throughout Las Vegas, we saw 'the dress' over and over, even in a long length for bridesmaids.
So, be warned, if you don't want to see yourself coming and going, avoid this dress at all costs!!!
I suspect you might be able to buy a gently worn one (one of the three in the picture) for a good price on eBay soon!!
I once wore the same dress as a coworker/friend to another coworker/friend's wedding. I lived through it....it's awkward though, no? Has this ever happened to you?
