I fell in love with this dress because of the pockets (since I never know what to do with my hands in pictures). The pockets also came in handy on my wedding day, since I stuffed them with Kleenex that I needed when I started happy crying :) This feature will come in handy for you too! I bought this dress for $1750, added a BLHDN belt that cost $60, and had the dress altered to add the belt & added a 13 point bustle (which was about $800 total). This dress has been altered to fit a size 0 5’6.5” woman (5' 8" in heels) w/ a 32B bust. It could fit a woman who is taller if you don’t wear a tulle skirt underneath.
