For those of you that haven’t read my other post I am on my 3rd knockoff gown for my New Years Eve wedding. The first wasn’t right; the 2nd I purchased from Miss Fish Bridal and the 3rd (the one I’m most excited about) is coming from Fabulous U.
This morning I had an email from Miss Fish Bridal that my dress was done! It looks nice, but I don’t know because I ordered it when I though I wouldn’t find my dream dress in my price range. I’M THINKING this’ll be a great party dress, but not my wedding dress. My fiancé (who loves my curves) is totally stoked after seeing the pic’s but either way I feel its win – win because I have 2 great dresses. For now I’m just going to post the original dress from Maggie Sottero and my knockoff, when I get the finished pic’s from Fabulous U then ya’ll can tell me what you think between the two.
Here is the origional:
Here is my dress:

Ok Ladies, THE DRESS IS HERE!!
I got my pkg from Miss Fish Bridal Thursday and I am SO happy I’m losing sleep! Below are the pictures, but I feel like I have to throw out a few disclaimers all in the name of honesty. So here goes
– I purchased a size 18 to fit my hips and butt, so the top and waist needs altering. The pictures of my arms going every which-a-way is me trying to give a more fitted look of the dress.
– I LOVE LOVE the dress but don’t like the appliqué around the neck or on the waist, so I have already contacted Tony (Fabulous U) about redesigning a more grander look for me.
– I thought the dress would be all chiffon, but it’s fully lined, boning, pads, etc I’m so serious when I say it’s just like if not better than the ones at the store. I tried on a Maggie Sottero (different gown, but same type) at a bridal boutique and it was wonderful, but this dress is heavier.
So here goes ;0)

So Let me know what you all think, because remember I still have 1 more dress (yea I know). The first one I am selling so if anyone interested (see former post) please let me know. The second is the Fabulous U dress, I ordered it after the Miss Fish Bridal dress when I though I wouldn’t be able to find my dream dress. The crazy thing is my first dress was $149.00
Sottero Electra was $220.00 and the Fabulous U was $280.00 with matching bolero for a total of 649.00 and that’s STILL less the Sottero at the bridal shop which was 1300.00 and this (I don’t know the designer)
Which was $1350.00 with a Swarovski Cristal Element belt. So I don’t feel bad at all, I figure 1 dress I’ll wear to my reception and the other I’ll have cut down to wear to my fiancé’s Masonic Ball or something 😉 Who cares I’m 40, and I’m on my first and LAST marriage so I’m gonna do what I wanna do……. As soon as I stop changing my mind about it!!!
