I found the dress of my dreams online. It’s absolutely perfect for me in every way.
However, I researched the company and found horrible reviews, bad credit card charges, low quality craftsmanship, late or missing orders, bad or absent response times, no confirmation emails, no working phone number… the list goes on. They’re obviously no good.
But this dress… I can’t stop thinking about it.
The company in question is called whatabeautifullife.com.
I’m on a super tight budget and I live in Korea and don’t speak Korean well, so contacting a seamstress might not be an option. (I’ve pretty much accepted I have to find a dress online due to the location issues.)
Do I just try to find something else and get over it? I even showed Fiance something in a similar style to see what he thought and he said it was the most beautiful thing I’d shown him… so am I missing some possible way I can get this? Should I risk just ordering it and hope for the best?

Could you maybe try a more reputable online dress shop and see if they can make a replica of this? I’m not too sure what a good online dress place is, but from what I’ve heard on here, Jasmine’s Bridal is usually good 🙂

@LadyElva: +1 on Jasmine’s Bridal Shop
OP, it is possible, if you go with one of the online replica sites, just make sure you have enough pics of the different sides of the dress so that they can get it as close as they can to the original.

I actually have great pictures of the side, 3/4 view, and back as well. I sent an introductory email to jasmine’s bridal. They seem more reputable and maybe they can make the dress for the same general price range.

AWESOME UPDATE: After EXHAUSTIVE internet searching, at last I couldn’t believe it but I actually FOUND the original creator of the dress!!!
In case anyone wants any amazing victorian/lolita dresses, victorianchoice.com is the designer. 😀

@Bebealways: I checked out the site. Are you having it as a wedding dress? The only thing I will look into is they are costumes, will it have the same quality that goes into wedding dresses.

@hiheel: As far as I can tell it will — I’m emailing with the company about it now actually. They’re supposed to be pretty serious business as far as costumes go.

what’s your budget then? You may send an requiry to a site called OuterInner.com, and find out whether they can make it. My friends bought some dresses from them before and their quality is good.
