Hi Bees – well, I went to a sale at a bridal shop today – they had a bunch of Maggies that they needed to sell to make room in their shop. I went in hopeful I might find something and I tried on so many beautiful dresses. So thrilled with the dress I bought – for $498!!! I still can’t believe it. It’s a Maggie Sottero, but I can’t figure out the style name – and I sent the dress home with my mom. I would just like to look on the boards for other brides with the same dress and see how they accessorized, etc . . .
Any thoughts on what you think it might be? Thanks 🙂

Looks like a fit and flare, or possibly an A line…..

^ I think she meant the style name of the dress itself.
Sorry I can’t help, but the dress looks gorgeous on you! Congrats!

The dress is beautiful on you! I have searched high and low, and can’t find this dress. Are you sure it’s a Maggie? Do you know what year it’s from? The salon should have given you the certificate with it when you bought the dress. That would tell you the style name.
Sorry I didn’t help.

Hmm. I didn’t get a certificate when I bought it. However the label inside looks absolutely authentic, and I tried on other Maggies that I recognized from the boards and the labels inside of them looked exactly the same. The inside tag says that it is style J1014. When I looked that up online I found a dress that looks very similar, only it’s straight across, and not a sweetheart neckline.
My dress has the tags on it, looks in new condition, and I highly doubt it’s been worn – the bottom is tulle (I think) and is perfect . . . could it be that someone ordered it with a different neckline and then didn’t buy it?
Funny, I just am so excited about how it looks, feels and fits, so I am fine with not finding it on the boards 🙂 One thing I couldn’t decide on when I tried it on was the train – I like it a lot, but am afraid it looks like fabric just flowing from my butt. (I guess that’s what a train is?) The staff at the shop said that the style of train on the dress makes for a beautiful bustle . . . have you ever seen anything like this?

You are absolutely right – someone may have ordered that dress and asked for a sweetheart neckline and then cancelled the dress. Therefore the store would have wanted to sell it to get rid of it.
