I don’t know where you are located in SoCal, but I got my dress at M Bride in La Jolla. It’s a great store with beautiful dresses, and the owner is really helpful and knowledgable. Check the website for the list of trunk shows (when I went, there was a Junko Yoshioka trunk show going on). Also, I think the store has a sample sale twice a year.

I also took a quick look at The White Dress in Corona Del Mar, and it seemed like they had a large selection of nice dresses. I didn’t try many on though, since I had already bought my wedding gown and was just looking for a short after-party dress. 

Good luck!

Oooh, I just got an e-mail about upcoming Allyson Simon trunk shows. They are listed on her website at:


Her dresses are gorgeous with wonderful details and made for your measurements. Also, she occassionally sells samples, whenever she decides she is going to stop making a certain style. Right now she is doing a lot of full A-lines and ball gowns.

Hi, I live in SD too (N. County) — I think there’s a big sample sale coming in mid-June. Here’s a link…


 I want to go, but probably won’t be able to… 🙁

I’m petite and about a size 0, though, so probably nothing would come close to fitting me anyway.
