Ahhh I’ll try not to make this post too long but I am so relieved that I found a solution to my dress dilemma. I originally wanted a fit and flare dress, and ended up thinking A-line/ballgown was a better fit for me so that’s what I went with. I was never really “in love” with my dress though. I had had up and down emotions and figured I just felt the normal dress regret.
When my dress came in back in March, my feelings were confirmed, I didn’t care for it. I felt no connection to it and I was sad. I have been looking for a dress ever since. I made the mistake of ordering one from from China off a replica site for around $260. It was not bad quality but definitely not even close to a replica. Luckily I sold that dress for about $180 so I recovered some of the money.
I recently came across The Last Minute Bride which is a site / shop and they have their own site and shop but also sell via preownedweddindresses.com. They sell samples at AMAZING prices and of course they come immediately. The lady Jennifer is great to work with and she even gave me 15% off. I came across several beautiful dresses on their site in my size that I liked but I reallllly liked Private Label by G / Kenneth Winston’s LV78 and it was from 2013 so I couldn’t find much about it online. I saw two other resales and from what I can tell, it originally was selling for somewhere around $2500-2700. Last Minute Bride was selling for $679 OMG!!! Plus Jennifer offered me 15% off so that brough it to $577 plus shipping! Holy crap! On top of all that, I had the option of splitting payments but I was going to pay in full… and since I was paying in full I had the option of returning if I didn’t like the dress. I ordered the dress and received it today.
It was packaged nicely and they even sent a card with a special note. I LOVE the dress!!!!!!! The belt I bought for my original dress actually works better with the new dress too. I feel so relieved. 🙂 Now I just have to sell my Allure 🙂
Here is a comparision from my old and new dress!
