- Wedding: June 2014
I have been searching everywhere for this dress and it’s sold out at BHLDN. I can’t find it preowned either! Anyone know where to find this dress? Or possibly know of anyone looking to sell this one? thanks
I tried looking online for you and had no better luck. If you’re willing to consider other options, here are several other dresses that I thought looked similar.

Other than BHLDN, both Neiman Marcus and Rent the Runway carry Catherine Deane gowns in the US (RTR obviously just being short-term rentals to wear to one event). Depending of the size you need, Neiman Marcus and BHLDN both seem to have similar styles left for sale in just one size:
junebride2014: I know the BM dress that I’m wearing for a friend’s wedding is the Jenny Yoo Annabelle in the BHLDN exclusive colour but wasn’t ordered through BHLDN. Through some fancy talking the store was able to special order the colour for the bride. Perhaps one of the other stores that carries this designer can work for you and do some fancy talking to order it?
If it’s a current season dress you may not see any second hand for another month or 2.
beerandcupcakes: just realized you linked dresses as well (on mobile, my bad) I do love the top of the Harlow gown from BHLDN. i wish I had a BHLDN closer to me! There is one in houston but that’s 3-4 hrs away. I was looking at the mira gown also but I don’t love the shape of it. I really want a dress that covers my back but has drama to the back also, with crystals and beading. I think if I could see the dresses in person it might make a difference. I loved the opal beading on the tallulah. Maybe I can make the trip sometime in the future.
junebride2014: MsGinkgo: I am hoping to get one second hand, my wedding is in May so I have a little time. It was the past season but it just recently stopped being carried. I contacted catherine deane’s reps through her website and they said they could make it but the price was higher, almost $4000. I have $2000 only unfortunately. (Which was the clearance price, if that’s not some luck lol.) I didn’t see the dress until it was already sold out 🙁
Catherine deane ortensia has a similar style and dramatic back. It was my second choices no I ended up with another gown but I am sure you could find it pre owned in your budget. Also, BHLDN has a 30 day return policy so you can order the dress and try it on at home and send it back if you don’t like it.
I have one that I purchased but I’m pretty sure that’s the one I’m wearing for our wedding. However I got it at the sample sale and purchased 3 dresses so I would keep an eye on BHLDN’s twitter account for when they are having a sample sale. What size are you looking for?
mjmacdou: hey would you be interested in selling it after your wedding?? I take a size 8 in this dress, but because of the way it’s cut other sizes may fit as well. Let me know if you would be interested in selling after your wedding, what size yours is and how tall you are. 🙂
I adored that dress for months now! Wish it haD Been in my budget. I did find out when I went to BHLDN that designers like Catherine deane do an exclusive for a little whole on their dresses and then when the time is up or the inventory, they’ll be on sale at the designers store or even other stores. Im about 80% sure I saw that dress on either Neimans or saks website a couple weeks ago. Also like another posted said, the ortensia is pretty similar. Good luck!
Mintyfresh: hey there. The ortensia is very pretty but what I loved about the tallulah was the gorgeous opal beading. I actually had purchased it from the dept store website and when it came in it wasn’t white it was pale gray. That was heartbreaking to return!
