Its time for another installment in our Hayley Paige saga. We’ve taken a detailed look at 3 Blush by Hayley Paige gowns and we are still waiting for our last one, Kingston, to come in. Today, we have Dakota, our second to last gown and the second gown featuring Marrakesh Beading.
The other gown in our inventory to feature Marrakesh is West. As you can see there are many obvious differences such as silhouette, straps and amount of Marrakesh. But one that is not so obvious is the difference in lining colors. West’s lining is Cashmere and Dakota’s is Nude.
Dakota is from the most recent season of Blush by Hayley Paige. It has the very sought after demure skirt paired with a very princess-y bodice.
For Utah brides, this dress is an excellent option if you need a modest gown. We can very easily order the Marrakesh beading and make the bodice modest without losing the integrity of the design and without having it look like piecework.
Silhouette: Ball Gown
Waistline: Natural – it actually falls just below the natural waist but not low enough to be a “corset” waist.
Straps: Cap Sleeves
Fabric: Marrakesh beaded bodice and tulle skirt
Sparkle Factor: 4/5
The Marrakesh Beading is very obvious and the only way for it to be more sparkly is if it covered the whole gown.
Boho Factor: 1/5
This gown reaches clearly to the “princess” side of the spectrum. There is a little bit of a Boho vibe from the lace and relaxed silhouette of the ballgown but that’s about it.
I wasn’t sure if I was going to like this gown. Now that it’s here… it is quickly becoming one of my favorites.
I think it is such a fresh and flawless design from Miss Hayley Paige. What are your thoughts?
Until next time,
