Hi Patchy-

Thanks for posting! I found my dress, which is almost the same at Kleinfeld a few months ago at a Rivini trunk sale. Mine is called “Ilys Chantilly” and has the same skirt and ribbon waist as yours, but the bodice is form-fitting lace with a sweetheart neckline. After trying on a lot of different dresses both at Kleinfelds, and other salons in NYC, I saw this dress out of the corner of my eye in someone elses dressing room, and when I tried it on, knew it was “the one” immediately. The skirt is just so beautiful.

Funny though, I can’t find a picture of the dress online ANYWHERE! Only the Rivni Ilys, so Im glad to come across the picture of you i yours. The dress looks so much better on you than the model on the runway.

Just wanted to tell you that te price for mine, including tax and alterations, and with the trunk show discount ended up between 6 and 7K. It was a little out of my budget, but I had tried on dresses around the same price, and the Ilys fit in a way that I knew it was the one, and worth the price.

Thes are the pictures of my Rivini Ilys CHantilly dress that they took for me at a trunk show in Chicago. Its not MY dress, but the one I had tried on when it was in NY.  A few of the pickups fell out of the skirt, and its without the ivory satin sash..  My dress doesnt come in for another few weeks
