Happy New Years Ladies! 2013 is here and I will be in Maui Hawaii next year for our 15th Anni...
I've been desperately looking for a reception dress- preferably under $100 (considering I only paid $130 for my gown!!) and everything I like is waaaaay out of the price range I want to pay. I'm hitting the mall again tomorrow to see if there's anything I've missed on the sale racks but in the meantime, i figured I'd browse through the internet.
I stumbled across these two dresses at JC Penny- both are really cute and along the lines of what I'm looking for... except, I want the dress to be short. Whatever reception dress I buy, I'm planning on wearing it for the After party & the 2nd reception in England so I want it to be something comfortable and easy to move in.
What do you think the long one would look like if I had it shortened to about knee length? Do you think it would make it look cheap & tacky or do you think it could retain the elegant but sexy look of the gown?
If I went with the short one, I'd ask the seamstress to remove the straps and add some reinforcement through the bodice so that I could wear it strapless without worrying about it falling down. Spaghetti straps are so unflattering on me.
