mine is a demetrios.  i paid $932 for it.  i think it was marked like $1080 or something, but they knocked off 15% and threw in free alterations if i paid in full that night.  no sales tax…there’s no sales tax on clothing in MN.  (w00t!)  it was a real score for me, since this dress is closer to perfect than i thought i’d ever get (although not quite…i would have preferred a satin gown witha slightly different back, but a blue dress was more important than that), and i wanted to keep it less than $1K including alterations.

i think the taffeta and satin gowns from this line come in white, ivory, platinum, gold (which i think is more like what most lines call “champagne”), a pale pink color, and grey-blue (the color i got).

model pic…i’m dispensing with the goofy jacket and the pinned-on roses at the hip.  i’m also debating whether or not to leave the skirt as is, or remove most of the crinny, slim the skirt, and shorten the train to more of a sweep train rather than the current chapel train.

in blue, on me (excuse the wrinkles, it was fresh from the bag):

Mine is preowned. I got it for $500 and the seller originally paid 1200 + alterations for it (she also paid 150 to have it professionally dry cleaned and preserved).

@thennic:  This dress is so gorgeous on you, and I LOVE the pockets!

I got my dress for $60 shipped and I’m completely in love with it. I am not super picky about dresses, though, which helps when bargain shopping–I think i could be equally happy in a dozen different dresses.
