So tonight me and my mother went to a local bridal store to try on some Jim Hjelm dresses. After the disappointment of last week, I just wanted to try one on already!! The store didn't have a huge selection, but I got to try a few on and see the colors. I originally wanted to wear ivory, but my mom is insisting on white, so we'll see. Below are three dresses that I tried on, the other one I can't find online for the life of me. Its funny b/c the one that we loved was from Tara Keely, which is a division of Jim Hjelm (not Jim Hjelm himself). The first dress is Jim Hjelm style # 8800 which I liked, but dosen't have "the wow factor". The second dress is Jim Hjelm style #8851. The straps were really pretty, but it didn't quite scream wedding to me. The third dress is Tara Keely style # 2700. This is the one that I thought "wow". The picture is shown in ivory lace with antique silk on the bottom, but I would get white or white with ivory. The dress has the pearl and swarvoski beading...love it :) Totally didn't think I would like the drop waist...you never know until you try it on!!
