After following this thread for a while I am seriously indignant that the OP didn’t mention that extensive alterations had been done to the dress in the listing! In no way is that a “brand new” dress. Even worse is expecting people to buy it unseen even though the alterations were botched and would probably require a lot of money to fix. Lesson learned – if someone refuses to let you see and try on the dress before payment, they probably have something to hide.

Poor form OP. If you were so unhappy with the alterations done to the dress that you weren’t willing to wear it to your own wedding, why on earth would you try to sell it to other brides as ‘new’?

HOOOOOOLY SHIT! I had a whole thing giving advice on what the OP should do. . . then I read the whole thread, and wow, what a mess! 

 

Definitely not OK to try and sell a dress that had had numerous botched alterations, without noting how much it had been altered! And gosh, rizzlemethis sure gave her hell for it! I wouldn’t be surprised if LouLoudi leaves Weddingbee after this one.

@bklynbridetobe:  Huh? I don’t understand what point you are trying to make. I am saying that not all dresses on POWD are used dresses. I am selling a new, unworn sample.

@onourway13:  ya, i know, but i just think after being outed like she is, she might not use this forum as a resource to sell it or gripe about selling it anymore.

@BeeG35:  She posted yesterday in another thread. If she’s gonna leave, I would think she’d take advantage of the delete policy.

I think one of the biggest missteps here is that the OP kept using the words “brand new dress” for something that had already been altered.

On POWD I’ve seen some dresses that are unaltered/new with tags, which IMO, comes closest to the description of “brand new”. But, while tecnhnically these dresses are “brand new” in the sense that they have never been altered and have never been worn to an actual wedding, you CANNOT call such a dress “brand new” because you purchased the dress from a store, and are now selling the dress secondhand.

I think the only entity who can legitimately call a dress “brand new” is the shop from which you bought the dress and that dress had better have come straight from the manufacturer. A dress is only brand new once.

I’m a little iffy on calling samples ‘new’ too because they’ve been tried on, pinned, and plucked at by many brides. Some samples are in great shape, but there’s  probably been more than one body in that dress, so I’m not sure they qualify as ‘new’.

I guess what I’m getting at here is that the term “brand new” or “new” is a loaded statement and can mean a lot of different things to different people. But in this case, and with these circumstances, it was definitely used incorrectly and was misleading.

She just emailed me calling me rude and saying I lack business ethic and I show “extreme poor character” because I did not email her and let her know I was no longer interested. I admit, I was wrong for not reaching out to her formally after reading this post…but i thought it was quite obvious that I would no longer be interested. The girl created a post to disrespect me and berate me publicly and really expected me to do business with her after all that? anyone with common sense should know better than to publicly post details of a wedding related transaction in process, on a WEDDING BLOG that every Bride to be uses.
