My dreamt dress

Hello there! No I am not dead but my current work keeps me kind of busy so no time for regular updates on my English blog :s. They will be ten times more mistakes (if it was possible...) in this post than in the previous ones as I lack some practise in English but please bare with me.
You may already know that I live in Paris in a really wealthy district so they are a lot of cloth designer shops around my place. And this afternoon, sneaking around for some interesting sales (yeah it is summer sale time here), I discovered a brand new shop from a Spanish designer I have never heard about : Sonia Peña. I am totally out when it comes to fashion and clothes in general, maybe she is famous but it is not a big deal for me. 

Anyway, the shop was fully packed with amazing cocktail and nightime dresses and as wedding season is up for me I thought why not have a closest look. Yeah I am aging (sigh!) and all my closest friends are getting married this summer or next one.
I have to say the dresses are fantastic! I was a bit scared to look like a big fat cow trying to fit in something too skiny for her but it ends up looking OK I think (I hope?). 
The sale assistant who took care of me insisted that I tried a "mermaid" dress as I like to call them (a sheath dress I think is the real name) because it would emphasize my best curves and hide the "barely there" ones (so to say my big booty and my missing boobs). 

The fabric is really heavy (which means high quality for me), the design quality is stunning and the cut is perfect. They were hundreds of underlayers in there but the outcome was impressive. Not because I was in there but because it makes me look right, well-shaped and over-glamourous :).
Here is the pic of the one I tried even if mine was fuschia without the fluffy belt (as I stay away from black for wedding)

So what you think? Wearable for a classy wedding or not? It is pretty pricey yeah (600€ I think) but the quality is there! Maybe it will be a lil cheaper soon with the sales? I have to check with a guy friend what he thinks about me wearing this (men are rude but good advisors for wedding :) )

See ya :)

PS: I am not raving about the way I look, trust me there is absolutely nothing to rave about but if you want to give yourself a special treat with an amazing dress you'd better have a look to this Spanish designer :p
