(First of, excuse my english it’s not my first language.) I bought my dress in a small shop in another country. The saleswoman told me the dress was new and an original. I didn’t believe her because the dress only cost about 250$ and it was already perfect for my lenght (I’m only 5’1″. I use the dress with heels though.). I have searched for my so called Mori Lee dress on the internet and I found one that is very similar – Mori Lee 2913. As it’s not identical I wonder if my dress is another Mori Lee dress or if it’s fake. So, do you think I have an original, used Mori Lee dress or do you think it’s fake? It does’nt really matter for me, I still love my dress, I’m only curious.

Sorry bee but I think it’s fake. The material looks nothing alike (especially the material used for the skirt ruffles) and I find it hard to believe a brand new and original one would be that cheap. Also the design on the bodice are completely different. Perhaps it is a different Mori Lee dress but still I find it absurd that any Mori Lee dress would be sold that cheap brand new.
You should definitely call up and complain. Even if you are happy with the dress it is absolutely appalling the lady would sell it off as something it’s not.

I’m sorry I think it might be fake to.. at first I thought it was the lighting but it’s a different material
It is a pretty dress though

I think your English is pretty good already!
your dress is a replica: the material is stiff (not satin), the beading and lace on the top is differently sewn as compared to the original. The pick up is not defined as the real one.
Get a refund or something, unless you are happy with the dress you got.

The neckline and beading are definitely different, and the ruffles.

It’s definitely a replica.

I actually think it might be an older Mori Lee gown, the 2406. It’s not a dress I’m too familiar with but looking at pictures of that compared to yours it’s probably that one rather than the one you posted. It has a sweet heart neck, lace appliques and taffeta rather than satin like the one you posted. Taffeta can look pretty awful when it needs steaming or pressing and I bet that will come up really nicely 🙂
It’s a much older style of gown so it wouldn’t surprise me if you could get it for that price off the peg, we have some similar styles that we’ve done events to sell off old stock for even less than that!
Here’s a link to another bee’s post with that gown http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/mori-lee-2406-straps-or-no-straps/
I can’t say for definite if it is a fake or not but you would hope not and really as long as you’re happy with it that would be the main thing! 🙂

Clever you, I believe you are absolutely right !

Wow thank you! That’s much more like it. I’ve kept my dress in a suitcase while travelling so it’s got very wrinkly. It will definitely get nicer after steaming. So happy you found it! 😀

Gold star for me! Haha!
Some small alterations, steaming and a single hooped underskirt will work wonders 🙂

anina : can’t wait to see it after you steam it and get the hoop eagle-eyed
Mangomosa : recommended! I know that style is a few years old but the romance of pick ups never goes away. It looks great on you style wise.
