I had the exact same dilemma. I wanted a form fitting illusion dress and everything I found that I liked was at least $3,500. I ended up finding a Martina Liana that I fell in love with. Perhaps you could check out Martina or Essense of Australia. Martina’s will be in the $2000’s and many of the Essense gowns are around $1500 or so. They may not have an exact match, but many of their dresses are available in moscato (looks like blush) and many of them have the illusion sleeves. It will be much more budget friendly than some brands. I may look a bit and see if they have something similar for you.

Look into Stella York; she has a lot of dresses like that! My dress was under $1400; she’s very affordable!!!

evergreen12 :  Her gowns are honestly like no other, aren’t they?  I purchased the Kenny (clearly also a sucker for an illusion neckline and back).  I feel like the re-sale will be decent so I’m confident with my choice!
