it was love at first sight.

I'm just crazy about this dress. I picture myself (skinny & with a new haircut) wearing it on the cruise. Unfortunately I don't see myself spending $164 on a dress that I'll not have many opportunities to wear. And even if I could find a pattern for a dress like this, I'm not sure that I could sew it.

Other dresses that I love: Ingrid Bergman's dress in Indiscreet. I couldn't find a close-up picture of it online, but click on the link to see a clip from the movie.

And Halle Berry's 2003 oscar dress. I think I have a thing for a crossing look on the bodice.

Good luck finding your dream dress...you have very glamorous inclinations!

I hate dress shopping. It's miserable.

Well, these are my favorite formal dresses. Of course I have much simpler tastes for everyday wear.

I don't mind dress shopping, but I like it better when I'm in good shape. (but I'm working on that).

Now swimsuit shopping...that's another story.

I love that style of dress, too. I think it's very flattering. when is your cruise and where are you going?
