This is the Antoinette sequin beaded dress from Karen Willis Holmes + Selena skirt. I wore the dress with the skirt overlay for the wedding ceremony. It features a flattering V-neck (which I altered to be slightly more modest - see photos), full sequins throughout. The dress is cut on the bias, so it lays perfectly on the body without being tight. The skirt has multiple godets for movement and drape and ends in a small train that has been altered to be able to be bustled. There are some subtle shell motfis that are beaded near the collar. The dress also comes with a sequined belt that can be worn both with the skirt and on its own with the dress. The Selena skirt was the highest quality one I could find (I searched everywhere for a more affordable option!), but this one really holds its shape. It's made of Japanese organza, so is structured but very soft and light. The sequin belt worn over the skirt really blend the skirt perfectly with the dress. Everyone couldn't believe that the skirt was separate when I took it off for the reception dinner and dancing. Alteration notes: I am 5'2" and wore 3.5" heels; the dress was altered to hit the floor. Had soft cups sewn in, so I could wear the dress without a bra. 3 part bustle. Closed the V-neck slightly to create more of a true V. The alterations were costly ($1200) primarily in hemming the length with the train.
