Wow! I love the way you solved this puzzle. I would not have even known where to start!

What an amazing KnockOff! Thank you for the side-by-side view. Awesome!

Haha Nancy, you're right they do! I almost can't wait for the weather to cool down a little so I can wear this dress. But just almost -- I love summer

Impressive and improved version of your Bottega Veneta inspiration!

Your dress is a very clever copy! I think the shoulder straps are an essential part of the design for this contest, but I agree with the others that you wouldn't want to wear them in real life. Actually, the pads remind me of bra strap cushions.

Great looking dress; you did an excellent job with the knock off style.

Now that I look at them again this morning with fresh eyes, the shoulder straps remind me of luggage straps. I mean, I get Bottega's whole resort/vacation thing, but I don't necessarily want to look like I'm wearing my luggage hehe

I vote no. Clever copying on your part. I haven't tried the challenge of a "knock off" yet. Must give it a go one day.

Amazing dress and a great review. Very inspiring. I like the look without the shoulder pads better, I think they are a little too avantgarde for everyday use.
