Fabulous dress! But size 16? I can't believe it, you look fantastic, way better than the model. No wonder your husband loves it.

This is an amazing dress. I can understand why your husband likes it so much - you look stunning in it! The gathering at the neck into the collar piece is really unusual and a beautiful design.

There is just nothing left to say but . . . magnificent!!! You rock that dress like no one else could! I may have to pick up this pattern myself (but I know I wouldn't wear it as well as you do).

Happy B-day!!! You look fabulous! Did you consider entering this in the LBD contest? With a nice jacket or knit cardigan the same as the knit used it could work for a day look.
9/27/10 5:34 PM
Erica B. said...
Thanks ReginaLit! I didn't think this dress was applicable for the LBD contest. I don't see how this dress could possibly be worn for a daytime look as well.
9/27/10 6:02 PM
Mazzygirl said...
Erica, are you kidding? a change of accessories & bam, it's a daytime dress! (I see it with brown leather strappy shoes, chunky bangles etc) Enter it, its perfect!

OMG. Love this dress on you. My 50th birthday is 10 days away, and I'm inclined to try this pattern ! Great work. Super stylish.

Wow and ditto all the above is about all I can say. You got your knockout dress and glad you had a great 40th!

I'm late to the party, but I want to with you a belated happy birthday, and point out that clicking on that photo of you in that dress is *not* what I should've done while wearing sweats! Beautiful, glamorous dress; it suits you perfectly.

glad you listened to your many supporters & entered the competition - good luck! LOOOOOOOVE that orange fringed bag too BTW... As always, very glamourous, I swear you could wear a hessian sack & make it look classy! Love all your different looks - fantastic!

Your review nearly brought me to tears! Firstly because you have done a fabulous job on what is a fabulous dress and secondly because I too attempted to make this for my 40th birthday this August but it ended in a zipper snafu. Must finish it off...

I thought I had commented on this incredible dress the first time around, but I see that I slipped up, so I'm glad to get a second chance. Holy mackerel, Erica, this is off the charts. Amazingly gorgeous and perfectly suited to you. Look #3 kills me. I love it!

Absolutely stunning. I saw when you posted at first and was wondering why you weren't going to enter the LBD contest. I went out to find this pattern but couldn't. I might have to order offline. Great job and happy belated Birthday.

Excellent dress, excellent style. This is a classic LBD: flexible yet statement making, and definitely not boring. It came out great also. I expect you just increased sales of that pattern.

CarolynGM said...
Wow! Such glamour and class! I love all three looks. Kudos to your photographer.
