Dakota from Blush by Hayley Paige

Hello Lovelies!

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.

WEST
DAKOTA

 

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.

The Skinny

Silhouette: Ball Gown

Neckline: V-Neck

Waistline: Natural – it actually falls just below the natural waist but not low enough to be a “corset” waist.

Straps: Cap Sleeves

Back: Keyhole

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,

Becca

That’s right, it’s AMAZING. Say it with me now…. Marrakesh Beading……. from top to bottom!

With the stellar fit,  low back and the perfect amount of sparkle, I’m not sure how Miss Hayley Paige could have improved upon this design.

West is a phenomenal design. Not just because she is drop-dead gorgeous but because she is such a universal design. She appeals to the “princess” brides who are looking for drama, sparkle, and a little more drama.  She also has such strong bohemian elements with the off white coloring and abstract beading that trendy brides are losing it!  West is perfect because she walks the line between classic and bold.

As for me, my favorite part of the entire gown is the cut. I love the neckline, where it hits the legs to flare out into a perfectly rounded skirt, and most of all I love that back. I am a sucker for a low-back gown. But for real, who isn’t?
