Hi Ladies…I posted last week about the potential steal I got off Ebay. It’s a Maggie Sottero (Summer…without the flower details). I purchased it as a store sample and was told it needed to be drycleaned and the corset string needed to be replaced. I had my eye on Maggies Fiorella but this one was so similar and how could I pass it up for the price! I was nervous about getting a replica or a dress that was ‘falling apart’. But I got it today and I am SOOOO EXCITED! The fabric is beautiful and the dress is so heavy! (but in a good way!) It’s AMAZING!!
I will definitely need to have it dry cleaned as the hem is dirty. I will need to have it shortened and a bustle put it as well as have a string made for the corset. I figure I can have that done for aprox $300…making the total price around $389 ($69 for the dress…$20 shipping…$300 alterations/cleaning). My dress budget was $500 so I am putting a little extra $$ towards photography. I am soooo thrilled!! I tried it on and it is beautiful (although I need to lose about 10 lbs…eek). I didn’t have anyone home to take pics of me…but my sister is coming over this weekend so I will get some pics in it! But for now I have to hide it before Fiance gets home!!!
