BHLDN take 2 with the ladies

When my cousin, Katy, and I went to the BHLDN opening on my birthday, it was too busy to try dresses on. We were a little disappointed but it's only a 20 minute walk from my house, so we knew we'd be able to go back again, soon. We went back to BHLDN last night and it was such a blast!! I went with two brides to be and it was like playing dress up with grown ups.I saw this red tutu, the second I walked into the store, and HAD to try it on! The Allegro Dress is so fun to wear too! It reminded me of an awesome and  modernized 80s prom dress.

Katy tried on the Niceties dress in french grey,with the Lady Grey Shrug as a potential dress for her Maid of Honor.

Fan tried on the Seraph’s Whim Shift and it fit her perfectly. She looked super cute in this dress, as if it was made with her, in mind.

I also tried on the Vivacity Shift in wild berry, which is in the running for a possible bridesmaid dress. I loved the color and the material but all the extra fabric made it a little pouchy in the belly, at least on me.

Fan tried on the Tied and True Booties and looked so tall and elegant in them! She even laced them up like pointe shoes.

In this lovely ladies photo, Fan's in a stunning dress, not featured on the website yet, (so I don't know the name of it,) I'm wearing the Savoy dress in Plum with a pink sash, and Katy's wearing the Dainty Diversion Mini! This is in consideration for a possible reception dress.

Just for fun, Itried on the Something Blue's Spotted Sea Heels They are adorable on the shelf and they really elongated my legs, but I'm not a fan of the ankle straps.

I did enjoy this fashion photo from my iPhone though!While I tried on shoes, the brides to be chilled on the comfy couch. The blue walls in BHLDN are brilliant and perfect for photo backgrounds!We were practically the only ones in the store and it was magical, like having your own two story dressing room! The BHLDN store is styled beautifully with so many amazing touches from, the Dainty Diversion Mini on the hanger...to the gorgeous bouquet with pink roses, blue thistles and greenery that greets you at the door, next to the adorable Miraflores dress in Rose.

What did you think of the Dainty Diversion Mini? I love it and am thinking of ordering it for some wedding stuff I have coming up?? Would love so advice!

My sister picked the vivacity shift in berry for her bridesmaid dress. I'm worried it will make her look fluffy like you said with the fabric. . . What do you think? Do you think it could be altered to fall as nicely as on the model? I'm so Saf they don't have a store close to us at all.

Thanks!! My sister is 5 foot 2 but the other girl is like 5 foot 4... But she's so thin that I'm hoping it won't be a problem! Thanks!! Your blog is the only place I could find an actual picture of the dress!! Thank you'
