David’d Bridal 9WG3707 Faille Empire Waist Pleated Gown with Pockets $549

$59 belt (Embellished Feed-Through S1066)

This was one of my top contenders!

Tried on this dress at the end of the day with a sparkly sash. Very comfortable with pockets. The failleĀ is a heavy material that doesn’t appear to wrinkle very easily (vs satin) and makes a lovely sound when you walk. Wore a strapless corset bra and poofy slip underneath.

Would alter to add padded cups and the large elastic straps inside to avoid wearing the strapless bra. Add a colored slip underneath. Like the belt but look for something vintage? Attempt to find a way to cover up my dragonfly.

Tried on at David’s Bridal, Syracuse, NY
