(If Yay!, get your pre-order in now.)

  1. I've looked at too many pseudo desert western weddings to ever find this acceptable.

  2. Nay.

    I keep trying to come up with more things to say, but my mind gets stuck. Shall we just say that the 11 year old me who was obsessed with historical YA fiction would have LOVED this to death and just leave it at that?

  3. At least it's not strapless for once .. but it's also not good.

  4. $1000 is a lot of $$ for polyester/nylon blend...
    also, I don't love the dress...

  5. Yay with the caveat it not be pink-ish. I have a full-on aversion that makes me want to cower in my Pendelton.

  6. I'm with @Rachel. I can't put into words my dislike of this dress, but it is strong.

    Maybe 'yay' if you were taking some Ye Old Tyme photos at Niagara Falls or carnival?

  7. not so much. I feel like it needs a parasol?

  8. Love the dress. But definitely not for a wedding. I don't quite know exactly what the right occasion would be though.

    xo,

  9. Yuck would be what I'd voted for. Too themed wedding-y.

  10. Cool dress, but not my style. Very Anne of Green Gables, though, which I like.

  11. Hmmmmm.
    I liked the first collections/pieces of the girls better.
    I used to love them. The dress wouldn't suit me, but some ladies would look great in it.

  12. It's not my style at all, but I voted Yay because without the Heidi braid, I think someone could rock it

  13. Am I the only one who voted YAY? I guess I watched too much Little House on the Prairie as a kid... 'cause I'm a fan of both: the dress and the Heidi braids. Together. Forever. Amen. xo.

  14. @nicole i voted YAY too. these people are obviously confused.

  15. I voted in favor of the dress, too. But then again, I may have what some would call a "problem" with ruffles. This was my wedding dress.

  16. @Amy - LOVE! And... I just spent a good deal of time looking at all of your wedding photos. THEY ARE ALL SO GOOD. xo.

  17. If you liked the dress, I'd say "yes" to being a wedding dress. But I do not like the dress. Looks cheap and homemade and faux Western. And ugly.

  18. @nicole -- thanks so much!

  19. Ha! This is so great to see. I was just in the midst of thinking I'd gone too safe with my dress, and saw this over on the OC website, and thought, briefly, 'should I....?' I knew I needed a second opinion, it was sorta too much, sorta not great, could be nice but could be awful. And here you all are answering my question for me a million times over! I love my original dress all anew.

  20. Hmm... no. Maybe because I'm British and not American I am not seeing 'Western' but am seeing 'Dickensian assault' as in it looks like a Victorian London drunk has torn the shoulders off her period-appropriate dress. I love both Rodarte and Opening Ceremony but I don't love this.

  21. it looks like something i'd expect to see at a renaissance fair.

  22. There is a fine line between " faux-western" and "western" that even westerners fail to distinguish.

    YAY all the way. I totally think getting married with a herd of cows in the distance would be a good thing.

  23. Like the neckline, different from the same old thing, I'm SO sick of strapless everything! Not sure about the sleeves or the color though.

    Allyson: 'herd of cows in the distance'--wonder if it will be a faux herd of cows to match faux western wear, you know, those things people plant on their lawns when someone has a birthday? Would wear the dress but for sure no faux cows! PLEASE! LOL
