This.  Dress.  Is...Perfection!

Bridal Market 2013 commenced in Chicago just over a week ago, and I have to admit that I have spent more time that I should have pouring over each and every detail not each and every gown that was sent down the runway.  All of the greats were there - From Oscar to Vegas, Monique and Marchesa.  I expected to see dresses that stepped away from the traditional strapless (thank you Ivanka Trump and Duchess Kate!) but what I never expected and what could not have made me happier was seeing my personal favorite detail walk the runway so many times.  And that is the off the shoulder dress detail.

Of all the dresses from all of the designers I saw, this masterpiece from Ramona Keveza has captivated me in a way that few material items ever have.  The fabric is at once both sumptuous and light.  The structure creates that enviable hourglass that we all aspire to.  And the shoulder...Oh my goodness!  That shoulder!

This dress is the most perfect combination of every fairy princess and every screen siren that has ever been, and quite possibly ever will be!

Just my opinion, of course!  And with so many a-ma-zing dresses debuting in the Spring of 2013, there is no doubt the dress of dreams!

Coming soon, I will showcase my other favorite dress trend, the dramatic back!

Until then....

While I am hopelessly enamored with the first dress, I have to say that Ulla-Maija surpasses it in the way of gorgeously draping both arms! So sensual! And off all the fabrics I have seen, this is just beyond! Photo by Dan Lecca. Courtesy of Wedding Wire.
