- Wedding: May 2014
Hi Bees! I know some brides are having difficulty finding som Rosa Clara styles and info, so I thought I’d post some photos and info about my experience with the brand.
Sadly there are no dedicated Rosa Clara boutiques in the Bay Area, though some bridal stores like Novella Bridal and Nordstrom’s Wedding Suite carry them. I would call ahead however to each store that advertises that they sell RC dresses becaus not all of them have all the styles in stock. I also want to mention there are several different lines from Rosa Clara so you have to make sure you are referencing the right lines:
1. Rosa Clara- generally upwards of $3000 and their main couture line. Usually made with more expensive fabrics.
2. Aire Barcelona, Soft by Rosa Clara- I have no experience trying on dresses with these particular lines, but in general cheaper and different fabrics than the main RC line.
3. Two by Rosa Clara- the cheaper line, has a lot of similar dresses to the main RC line, but in different fabrics. Kinda similar to Vera Wang’s White line for David’s in concept, but they are stocked at higher-end boutique stores, and their prices are around $1500-$3000.
ANYWAY, I tried on the Rosa Clara Delicia in Nordstrom SF and it was gorgeous. It was $1825 and was made of a nice thick lush fabric, though I forget what it was exactly. It is practically the carbon copy of the Rosa Clara main line’s Aragon from 2012, except the Aragon was made of silk, and the Delicia’s is a less expensive fabric.
In the photos below the dress fits kind of weird because it was a sample size 12 and I’m a 0 and the sales associate didn’t pin the back since the bows got in the way.
Nevertheless, Delicia looked and felt very luxurious to me. I adored the simplicity of the dress and the bow details and removable train (genius! no bustling for the reception!) I ended up going with a more elaborate gown, but the Delicia definitely was my second pick.
