I finally found it.
You guys have been with me through a lot of dresses. I am too embarrassed to enumerate the carnage here. I was to the point where I was about ready to give up on lace dresses entirely because I didn’t think I’d find that perfect one in my budget.
Thank you, POWD.com.
Excuse the horrid cell phone camera mirror picture. I was too excited to wait for anyone else to get home to try it on and take pictures. I won’t say the name in this thread because I don’t want it to be searchable in Google cache, but it’s a pretty popular dress by Jim H. The style number begins with 86 and ends with 63. 😉
Now I just have to decide if I want to keep the ivory sash or change it to champagne.
So to all the brides out there with dress regrets: trust yourself. If it doesn’t feel right, it probably isn’t.

@Amaryllis: you look so happy! 🙂
I love the lace, I think a champagne sash would be gaw-jus

@panterapeach: Thank you! haha I couldn’t leave a blank face there, so I drew in a very sophisticated smiley to express my joy. 🙂
Thank you, bluespurrs and Mrs. Grape.

Ahhhh, it fits, and it looks so so beautiful! I’m so happy for you!
p.s. : Nice coding of the name 😀 Why don’t I think of clever things like this? My entire private life if searchable at this point.

@meliss: Thank you! It mostly fits. I do need to lose some weight; it’s not zipped quite to the top. I am so happy with it that I don’t care. I have been working on losing the last 10lbs anyway, and I love it so much that I would just alter it to more of a keyhole if I can’t get it to zip all the way. It is most of the way up so it wouldn’t be an issue of keeping the dress closed or anything. And thank you! I am semiparanoid about keeping things a secret. I went to show my sister the shoes I am considering, and googling the name brings my post up. That’s what made me think of it.
Thanks, HolyVowels and kitzy!

You look absolutely stunning, and this is proof that great things finally happen to those who wait. The dress is exquisite!

@missjyc: Thank you! It is ivory over champagne, and I think the color in the sash will help bring that out better.
@AudzinLuv: It only took 1.5 years and quite a few mistakes along the way. But definitely, perseverance paid off. I am fortunate that I had the time. Thank you!
