yet another solo dress

Here it is Conference Weekend and I'm posting about outrageously expensive solo dresses. Talk about mammon. I do feel compunction, but looks like I'll go ahead with the post. (btw, I cried all the way through that story Elder Holland told about the boy and the "angel." What's been your favorite talk so far? I don't think I can pick!)
What do you think of this one? The skirt style is the very latest trend. I think it will catch hold quickly because it is so much lighter and freer to dance in than former styles.

I think you would be hard pressed to find a dress that did not look gorgeous on your daughter with her striking face and hair.

I cried during that talk too. He told it in such a beautiful way. I didn't hear much of this mornings talks because the QUIET packet that my children were doing wasn't keeping them QUIET. :)

Ya know, I didn't like it in the first picture, but seeing it on someone in action, I like it a lot. I do agree with dina though - a pretty girl makes a pretty dress. No doubt about that.

I cried too! I think I did it inconspicuously enough so nobody saw. I always love Elder Holland's talks.

I'm so jealous--I haven't heard any of the talks yet.
I think this dress is very pretty. The skirt looks like a tutu--is that the trend?

I like this dress also but I'm not sure I like the tutu idea. I'm kind of traditional I guess.
I haven't been able to hear many of the talks either. We get everything later. I hope I don't cry because I translate many of the talks and if my voice starts cracking its not cool.

Well, I think this may be my favorite so far...
very cute yet has the flame shapes that I love!
Also, the tutu look must be influencing me, right? hahaha

I think this dress is a little "baby-ish". I keep looking at it and it's pretty, but it must be the colors that turn me off a little. I like more traditional Irish dance dresses and colors I suppose. But as is already said, she could wear any of them and look gorgeous.

As for conference...Elder Holland always has something to say to me :)

I also really enjoyed both of Pres. Uchtdorf's talks.

I don't think traditonal is the word I wanted above. I think I should have said, I like the darker more dramatic colors in Irish dance dresses.

Whether that's 'traditional' or not I have no idea.

Well, I can't speak for Elder Holland, but I'm not a fan of the dress. It seems too little-girly and reminds me a lot of those itty-bitty beauty pageant dresses. Lidia could pull off any color with her gorgeous coloring, but I think the darker greens and reds (and even the turquoise) were better options.

It's so nice to contemplate these serious decisions, what with all the drama in so many other (political) arenas!

Thanks for the dress opinions! It's both helpful and interesting to know what others think.

One thing I like about the tutu underneath is that it seems a little more modest when they do their big kicks.

Seems that another girl in our school will probably be buying this dress, so we're still looking. It's fun. And I agree with Mama Ava--a nice distraction from the drama of the day.
