Why are we FOREVER talking about Maggie Sottero?! I sometimes worry that you guys get sick of hearing about Maggie! But I really can't help it. So basically I'm apologizing but I'm not going to stop. #sorrynotsorry
First and foremost the fit is unrivaled. I don't know what they do or how they do it, but the same dress can fit 10 different women. It's like that pants movie. Ok, that's a lie. I do know how they do it. It's the boning in the bodice along with the lining. If it's a fully structured bodice there are 22 stays in there shaping and flattering the most feminine part of you! Even in the more relaxed sheath dresses they STILL have shaping because without it you're wearing a bag. No one wants a bag.
The quality - beautiful details, fabrics, beading, lace, and FABRIC. If you have terrible fabric you've got nothing. Which is why I think they have some of the best value in the industry; for what you pay you get a LOT of dress.
Maggie Sottero designers walk that infinitely fine line between just right and too much. We see designers "over-design" gowns frequently which results in this: "Oh wow...that would be so pretty if it didn't have that weird flower thing on the hip." And while, usually, the weird flower thing could be easily removed first impressions are EVERYTHING to a bride who is gown shopping.
Did I mention (47,531 times) that we had a Maggie trunk show?! Well, if you managed to hide from me and not be bombarded by that information WE JUST HAD A MAGGIE SOTTERO TRUNK SHOW!! Which means we got to have dresses that we did not purchase as in-store samples. It's basically like ordering the appetizer sampler. (Except there are no cheese sticks. Which are clearly the sole reason I order the sampler.)
Well, hello sexy back. Renne is modeling Jade for you because look at her back. <3
Fitted bodice, backless, tons of details, shimmering embroidery, sparkling bead working, and intricate straps combine to bring you everything that you've been drooling over!
This is what you get when you take a regular natural waisted A-line gown and add a touch of whimsey with a dash of couture. Layers of ultra soft French Net (like tulle but not evil) fall softly away from the body highlighting your waist line. Layers of the same soft material wrap the body for a slimming affect, and strategically placed delicate applique seal the deal with a kiss of romance. Love love love!!
THIS DRESS THOUGH. I personally have not ever really loved a ball gown. This is the first time that I saw one and thought, "Wow, that's something even I want to try on."
It's every single thing you've asked us for. Sheer back and neckline, understated ball gown, embroidered details combined with a smidge of twinkle, and BUTTONS! Look at those delicate pearl buttons all the way down the back!
The Camarillo Bridal Dictionary Definition of Twinkle: a little bit of shine that isn't quite bling. Just the right amount of sparkle so you feel like a bride.
