Dip Hem Engagement

The star of my recent engagement photo shoot is definitely this Amy Lynn Bardot Prom Skater Dress in Floral Print (from ASOS). It was fate when I decided to order the last size XS on a whim, and was shocked the length fits well for me. I only had to do some minor slimming at the waist/torso. Also my first time wearing an "off-shoulder " style and I love it!
Here's how the dress looked for my Baroque-fairy-tale inspired engagement shoot: 


This dress made me feel like a princess! 
I am now a new fan of off-shoulder (or Bardot), hi-low (or dip hem) gowns. 
Here's some very similar dresses at Chi Chi London:
Fenna Dress (in solid navy)
Heloise Dress (in red)
Louise dress (in black)
Cora Dress (in nude)
Jannah Dress (in teal)
Shauna Dress (in multi floral)
Serenity Dress (in pink floral)
Pandora Dress (in white floral)
Carol Dress (in lilac)

Cape Wedding Dress on Trend

Goodness, the more I look into wedding dresses, the more I am becoming indecisive. I remember when my aunts married in the early 90's, shoulder-pads, poofy sleeves and over-the-top lace appliques were the rage.  If there is one memorable style for the late 2010's-recent, I would point to the "cape" dress. It all started with Solange Knowles and now Serena Williams. Not to leave out other memorable cape evening wear: Lupita Nyong'o red Ralph Lauren dress and Charlotte Casiraghi's blue Giambattista Valli gown!

I am not sure if cape-dresses are a good idea for petite women, but 5'2"-ish Emilia Clarke sure rocks the capes in the popular Game of Thrones

A Wedding Dress to Flatter

I thought I was set on my "sweet and nerdy" collared A-line style, but turns out, my fiance would rather I wear something more figure-flattering. Typical of men! So now I'm considering more "Grecian" or hip accentuating tulip-style of gowns...brainstorming here:
