That’s my dress! I tried it on at a trunk show at a salon in June and just knew it was the one. I think it was brand new when I bought it (I had been to Priscilla of Boston a few weeks earlier and they didn’t have it yet), and I haven’t seen any real brides wearing it yet. It’s coming in December so I’ll try to take pics then–was too caught up in the moment to get any ๐Ÿ™‚

When I ordered the Talita gown, there was no images of it online. Once I saw the online pics, I was highly disappointed! The model really doesn’t fill out the dress properly. I feel that it looks better on me than it does on her!

You’ll have to excuse the look on my face — not sure what was going on there. Hope this helps! It’s a beautiful dress and I fell in love with it instantly!

I thought mine would be out of my price range too but I was able to get 20% off plus convinced the store (Priscilla of Boston) to not charge me sales tax. Just talk to them and see how much wiggle room they have ๐Ÿ˜‰

@Jade_Esthappan: dress twin, you look amazing! I agree with you about the pics online–they definitely don’t do it justice. Can’t wait until mine arrives!

@Jade_Esthappan:

the dress looks gorgeous on you!  I’m also considering buying the Talita, but it’s definitely stretching my budget.  Would you mind sharing how were you able to negotiate 20% off and no sales tax?  I can go to my next appointment equipped with information to negotiate a better deal! =)

I’m a PoB bride and really haven’t seen a dress I like as much as mine, but I have to say, I loooove this dress!  I think I must just love PoB/Melissa Sweet dresses in general, because there was so many that I liked a lot.  I knew there was a new collection out but haven’t looked at it yet in fear that I’d end up loving something more than my own:)

Beautiful dress ladies!

I posted an ad in the clasifieds section, but since some brides on this posting have expressed interest in the gown – I am selling my gently used Melissa Sweet Talita (street size 8) for $1200. Worn only once for 5+ hours at ceremony and reception. Incredibly flattering dress that fits any body shape well.

Gently altered at bust and French bustled (three tiered) done by professional seamstress.

PM me for pics and if interested! Would love to sell to another bride – it truly is a magical dress ๐Ÿ™‚
