I am checking ebay for the one I plan to order or one that is VERY MUCH LIKE IT…
so I found this ebay listing but I cannot see for crap because the pics are small. I emailed the seller and I’m waiting on an answer, but I wondered if anyone who is familiar with Oleg Cassini recognizes it based on these pics in the auction? The description sounds a lot like the dress I plan on buying so I am curious. I would like to figure out the style number or name to see it in official pics.

I have no idea, but I did look at the listing.
I would be very leary of purchasing from this seller. They don’t have any recent feedback and they go back and forth in their description. They state that they haven’t worn the dress, it didn’t fit right so they purchased a different one, then they have pictures of their wedding in the dress, then again they never wore it.
Seems a bit wishy washy to me.

Thanks. I wasn’t really planning on purchasing from them (size not right anyway) … I was mainly wanting to ID the dress as another possibility for me.
I have decided on my dress and plan on ordering it in the next month, but of course want to save money and the exact dress I want is one that I never see on any of the pre-owned sites or most discount sites or any of that. It’s kind of unique…doesn’t fit ih what is popular now. So far the only others I’ve found that are similar are a LOT more money.
So, if I find another designer who makes something very very much like it it will give me other options, maybe, and this one (the top part anyway) looked a lot like the dress I am planning on buying. If I don’t, then I will still order “my” dress as planned. 🙂

Well it says it’s an Oleg Cassini dress which they sell at David’s Bridal.

looks REALLY similar to this dress:
currently in DB’s sale section, but nowhere called an Oleg Cassini
ETA: I’m a dummy. The dress on ebay isn’t strapless. What an oversight… sorry! My bad 🙂 I was so focused on the lace + sash!

@ddw: It’s ok. Thanks for giving it a shot! 😉 Strapless is a dealbreaker for me.
@Lynz1022: I was just there last week and I’ve been through their website 100 times so I am guessing it’s an older style. 🙁

For anyone who is wondering, I got an email from the seller so I now know what dress this is. It’s a discontinued Oleg Cassini CS125: I only found posts of a few people in it and a bunch of “Where can I find this???” kind of messages in various places online:
It is very pretty and has a lot of similarities to the dress I am in LOVE with but not enough, I don’t think, for me to make a change, esp. since it seems to be even harder to find than “my” dress (Jacquelin Exclusive 9802).. plus it’s a bit TOO modest for me. I wanted something somewhat so but not this much so. If you know what I mean. 😉
Here is “mine”… more cleavage and a closer allover lace effect and slightly shorter sleeves:
But for anyone who is curious, now you know what it is and what it looks like.
