Hi. i’m not much of a dress girl, this is all new to me. I was wondering if any of you could help. After countless hours, turning into days and now months, searching for dresses online I’ve found 2-3 that I like. This is the top of my list but it is way out my budget I think. Could any of you please direct me to where I could find something similar to this but at a more friendly cost.
I’d also like for it to have sleeves like this on the top instead of strapless.
If anyone could help I’d really appreciate it. I really don’t know where to look.

check out this site: http://www.davidsbridal.com/Product_VW351023-VW351023_Bridal-Gowns-Shop-By-Designer-White-by-Vera-Wang
it’s by vera wang, if you notice the sleeves are an accessory, so you could possibly purchase the top to go over any dress!

@Miss Joker: I think that the Vera Wang that you are refering to comes with the removable sleeve part! I was just about to suggest it 🙂

Wow. I didn’t know you could just get that Vera Wang “illusion” piece and put it on top of any dress! Thanks so much Miss Joker and missapis! I’ll have to look into that. The Vera Wang “Esther” dress / Ivanka Trump dress was the 2nd picture I had put up, it’s also my co-1st dress choice but is probably way out of budget as well (the non David’s Bridals version that is). I found out the dress I posted, if I want it with the top changed would be close to $8000 + alterations I believe. What a bummer.
Natalila, thanks for your suggestion as well. The tops not quite what I had in mind, but maybe I’ll have to try something like that as well. Could you please let me know who makes that dress and what the name of it is?
Please keep all suggestions coming! Thanks so so much.

EvergreenSelena thanks for the suggestion! I couldnt find exactly what I liked on the sites yet but theres a lot to go through.
Thanks again Natalila!
This is the 3rd dress which I love as well. I found it on ETSY as someone tried to get it custom made. I dont know where the original picture came from though. I contacted Monique Lhuillier and they said the jacket is a Jacqueline with separate skirt. But the skirt and top under the lace top looks completely different in my opinion to the one that is on the Monique Lhuillier actual model. Does anyone know what the name of this dress or similar is?
Really having a hard time finding what I like. I didn’t know looking for a dress that I liked would be this stressful! And this is only preliminary shopping so I can go into shops with a list and goal of what I want! haha
Anyway, yes, so still if anyone knows of similar dresses or these dresses, or where I can have these custom made for a decent price that’d be great!
Thanks so much for the responses. Everyone here on this website is so helpful. 🙂

The Esther (the one in the Ivanka Trump) picture is about $12000+
BUT!! You can have the top made separately – and detachable for cheaper. Or you can purchase the top on its own – and wear it multiple different ways – open in the front (similar to the top of the Monique Lhullier scarlet in the front), or open like a jacket in the front, or open in the back (similar to the PL 369 bolero from Platinum by Priscilla)
Depending on your size and date needed, if you want to shar e the Esther I could be talked into it. I’m 5’6”, 35/26/36 1/2 and need it at the end of October.
