Dress Envy


I feel like it’s been awhile since I posted a frothy, fancy ball gown in a Dress Envy post, and I think it’s time to remedy that! Hands down, my favorite ball gowns are by Lazaro, and this one is a perfect example.

This beautiful bride, photographed by Simply Jessie Photography, was married at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago. Her ruffled gown fit in perfectly against the modern lemon and charcoal color scheme and the Chicago skyline! You can find the full wedding on Style Me Pretty.

How do you feel about ball gowns? Love them, or prefer something more form-fitted?

  4. This is stunning! Sort of reminds me of the dress Lemon wore on Hart of Dixie (if you don’t watch it, google it and make sure you look at the back)!
