- Wedding: September 2010
Beautiful, un-used wedding dress for sale. I bought this as a backup to the dress my friend made me, just in case she couldn’t finish it in time, but she did so I did not wear this gorgeous dress for my wedding. It is from a runway show, so it was worn once by a model and then purchased by me. It has “June” and an ID number written inside by the tag. It is unaltered, so it is long enough to fit someone 6’ tall. I am a street size 8-10 and it fit like a glove, but you could alter to fit if you are larger or smaller without compromising the style of the dress. It has been professionally cleaned and is in a protective garment bag. It comes from a home with no smokers or pets, and was mostly stored at the store.
You will not find another dress like this in the Seattle area, it has truly unique styling and touches of elegance that I didn’t see at any of the four upscale bridal stores I visited. It is extremely figure flattering and very comfortable to wear, and doesn’t shift to show your undergarments as you move around (we’ve all been there!). The strapless bodice is molded so it comes in again over your bust, and you could easily attach straps, capped sleeves, or a capelet if you desired.
The pictures can’t quite capture the stunning embroidery, it is very delicately done yet packs a modern punch when the light catches it. The large, softly metallic magnolia flowers are very chic and different from the usual lace applique found on bridal gowns. The asymmetrical gathers make your waist look teeny tiny and makes for a semi-full train. There is a bit of lining to fill out the skirt, but it’s not cumbersome to walk or sit in. The dress is 100% silk taffeta and was designed by the famous Ines di Santo, who’s dresses normally retail for $3,500-$10,000. I have not been able to find a commercial picture of this dress, so I’m not sure if it has been put into production – talk about one of a kind J
I am asking $2,000, since I think this dress would have fallen in the $5,000 range of Ines di Santo dresses based on the volume of material and level detailing. I hope to pass this on to a beautiful bride who will enjoy it as much as I would have!
