Many of the dresses are simple with a surprising little detail, like a girly bow at the natural waist. I adore the Morgan dress (in the third photo), with its smart pockets, full princess skirt, and floral embroidery with tiny jewels that are barely there. And the knee-length reception dress is lovely, too- the gathered fabric down the center of the dress (made to...
