Hmm...I think my Debs dress would probably end up being similar to my wedding dress, since that's white too. It's a fifties style halter top that poofs out at the bottom and is tea length. Or I'd go for a long flowy 30's gown.

I already follow!
Great contest!

Heather said...

I would want it to have cap sleeves, delicate silk hand sewn flowers across the neckline, and a fitted shape!

Princess Neve Reviews said...

Sure I am already a follower. Tomorrow I will add a link and a post about this contest on my blog

I would love my dress to be a victorian dress with a corset from white satien and white lace gloves.

Steph Su said...

I'm gonna go with what I know looks good on me. Strapless, straight across above the bust, corset-like fitting through to my hips, where it then poofs out to the floor. I'm smiling just thinking about it, hehehe...

I'm following you now, and I've linked to this contest in my sidebar. Thanks!

I'd like mine to have a layer of Chantilly lace and the neckline to be a sweetheart neckline with poet sleeves.

I blogged about it.

Erica said...

My dress would probably be a really pretty strapless with an empire waist.

Bingo said...

My Deb dress would be white, of course, but very comfortable so I could dance all night. I think it would be loose fitting and with a flaring skirt to twirl as I danced...oh, I can dream!

I am now a follower.

I also posted your contest on my giveways tab here post

Congrats on your giveaway and thanks!

liane66 said...

I would like a simple white fitted dress ala Carolyn Bessette Kennedy's wedding dress.
Thanks for the giveaway!

kalea_kane said...

I would say that it would be quite similar to my own wedding gown. White, strapless, tight to the waist with a good poofy bottom. Ahhhhhh if only. :) Thank you for the great giveaway!


kalea_kane said...

I am a new follower too. Your background is so pretty!


Polo.Pony said...

Thanks to everyone who entered!

Kalea, thank you! I'm glad you like it!

kalea_kane said...

I am back, and yes...I love it. It is colorful but not too colorful. Mine is LOUD and one of these days I'll tone it down. Anyway, I posted a link to your giveaway on my blog.

Thanks again

NotNessie said...

I'd want my dress to be exactly like my wedding dress... corset back, strapless, beaded... only blue.


I'm a new follower!

NotNessie said...

...And yes, I know the dress is supposed to be white. sigh

Polo.Pony said...

NotNessie, hahaha...hmmm, maybe you could get away with it if was really really light blue? It would be very pretty though!

MJ said...

Long fitted sleeves....scalloped neckline with lace....fitted bodice...long flowing skirt.

Pissenlit said..., maybe off-shoulder or straight across sequins, no bows...perhaps a tiny smattering of crystal beads or a tiny bit of lace. :)

The Giveaway Diva said...

my deb dress would be tight fitting with mermaid bottom and covered in a lace overlay studded with crystals and pearls!

BN Book Blog said...

Well... Beth's dress would be strapless with a corseted bodice and embroidery at the bust line. It would have to be floor length and have a very very tiny train. Nathan wouldn't wear a dress (that would be a bit creepy). We're followers!

Beth & Nathan

traveler said...

Sweetheart neckline, sleeveless, baby blue organza and a fifties style. Retro and love it.

kathemc(at)gmail(dot)com said...

Off the shoulder sweetheart neckline, elbow length fitted sleeves, fitted bodice with nipped-in waist, and a tea length full skirt. Also very '50s retro -- fun!

mindy said...

it would have to be fun and funky with a bit of whimsy like a creme lace over rose satin with a handkerchief hemline and sleeves and a rose brooch with cascading pearl right in the center


like a 50's evening gown with pink diamonds

scottsgal said...

strapless satin with pearls and a fitted waist and fuller skirt.

Liviania said...

My gown would be strapless and fitted up top, with a v at the waist flaring into a full skirt. Tulle over silk, with plain silk gloves and a lace fan.

Mine would be very delicate and romantic, probably made of chiffon with a full skirt, beaded sweetheart neckline and flutter sleeves.

Katie said...

Enter me!
My dress would be strapless, kind of pleatedish around the bust, then flowing the rest of the way down. Okay, that sounds kind of weird, but I promise it looks really pretty in my head! =]

I would have my Deb dress have a poufy skirt, with a lacy thin strapped top. The front of the bodice would have lace, pearls and tiny crystals! Thanks for the chance to win your book drawing.

Congratulations on your first giveaway. Would love to have the book. I don't have a blog so can't do any more entries.

Beth said...

Sorry - I didn't get my comment finished. I'd like a very full skirt with a fitted bodice. I'd like the material to be a soft cotton. Thanks.

Danielle said...

Enter Me! I'm already following, and I would like my Deb dress to be an off white without straps and very long and a flowy material. I'm following the "In Nikki's Head blog" and I posted this contest in my sidebar!

Wrighty said...

Since my name is Deb I have to sign up for a Deb book! I love the dress that Taylor swift is wearing in the music video Love Story that you have at the bottom of your page. Does that count? It's so beautiful and so is she.

Mine would be simple-maybe vintage chanel with some elegant beading on it and would have a princess skirt with folds of voluminous fabric!
