Trip #4 (Back to Store 1)

I went back to the first store today to see if, now that I have a bit of a better idea of what I'm looking for, there was anything there I missed on my first visit.  

The quick answer to that question is "no."

I tried on one new dress.  It was kinda cool, cause it had a layer of tulle over a layer of lace, so the lace was a little like a watermark.   But I wasn't in love with it.  I just think that it's too big and fluffy for me.  I've realized that that really just isn't what I'm looking for:

I also tried on the Dress Formerly Known as #4 from Store #1, which will now be known as Mom's Favorite.  I remembered not loving this dress when I first put it on, but I couldn't remember much else about it.  I knew that it looked pretty good in the pictures, so I was interested to see how I would feel about it putting it on again.

 It has a sown-in sequin belt that I don't like, so for this try-on I put a sash on top of it to disguise it.

And y'know what guys, I just did not like this dress. It might not look it in pictures, but it's really big and the train is a little ridiculous.  I like the idea of the illusion neckline, but so far I just haven't found any that I like, and I'm not sure it's worth continuing the hunt.  Sorry, Mom's Favorite.  I tried.

I also tried on my favorite dress from the first visit, formerly known as Dress #5 from the first store.  What can I say, you guys, I still really like it.
