Mine might just be an Anne Barge dress. No specific model… but her dresses are to die for

I got my ridiculously gorgeous and too expensive dress by cutting back in a few other areas. Definitely look for it more affordably, though! If there’s anything the past few days of posts have taught us, it’s that persistence really pays off!!

Oh goodness.  That Priscilla of Boston dress is amazing!  I love the way it swirls when the model walks!

When I was looking for dresses, I loooooooooooved an Anne Barge dress – it just made me think of Grecian goddesses. It was so beautiful and flattering…but way out of my price range and I couldn’t justify it, especially since it was my first day dress shopping and I thought I could find something else. I still wonder if I should have figured out a way to get it! My whole wedding probably would have been different!

For some reason I have a THING for Tomasina gowns….no holds barred, I’d get the gown on their website HP:  http://www.tomasina.com

The lace is EXQUISITE.   I believe it was priced at $12K – at least 6 years ago.   Who knows what it would cost now….

Le sigh!

**bashfully raises hand**

I couldn’t help myself and I bought my dream dress!!  Yes, it’s ridiculously gorgeous and way too expensive, but I’m so in love with it I can barely take it.  I have love dreams about it!!  It was way out of my budget but worth every single cent.  And I get to wear it in less than 2 weeks!!

Oscar de la Renta really does it for me! His satin fabric is heavenly, and the guipure lace is truly exquisite, one of the best in the world. Plus, if you’re looking for a dress with a defined bodice, the proportions are perfect! I would have loved to have had one of his lace dresses for my wedding gown, but there is no way I could ever swing 13k on the dress. It’s a rare thing to find a dream ODLR discounted online…hey, do real people ever win those Knot contests, etc?
