This is my dress...Sophisticate by Kenneth Pool...I love love love it but every once in a while I have my doubts about it (I am told this is normal!).  When I tried it on it was 2 sizes too small (it was a sample sale and it was the runway dress)-- so I was able to be zipped into it but, since I am not a size 0,  I didn't get to see the dress fit like it is supposed to fit.  I have pics of me in it but I HATE the pictures because the dress is too tight.  The dress had everything I was looking for...I wanted a dress that wasn't too heavy, with a sweetheart neckline, some ruching, a beaded belt or something similar (a little bit of bling), mermaid fit, and a short train-- and that's the dress I found!  So why do I have occasional panic attacks about my dress?    The Dress shhhhhh photo 1The Dress shhhhhh photo 2The Dress shhhhhh photo 3
