I do believe it’s an Alfred Angelo, I just don’t see it on their site anymore.

Also, MoriLee does colored dresses as well and this resembles one of theirs.

Good Luck!

That looks like an Alfred Angelo 1516 (a predecessor probably).  It’s definitely an Alfred Angelo, although I’ll bet it is a past season design.  It should be on sale (like really on sale) since it’s obviously not from the past two years.

I think ive seen this on the alfred angelo website too. Those are some of the best color accented gowns ive seen. i agree with MightySapphire…it is VERY similar to 1516. if you decide this is the one, the color options are the same for all the current dresses and i would think that would also be true for your dress too. & they could probably alter the neckline to a sweetheart if you want.

Just read your response again…that dress vendor is SHADY!  Yes, the dress is new.  They don’t sell used dresses at boutiques.  Is it a new style?  Um no.  And designers DEFINITELY don’t stop making a dress if it’s REALLY POPULAR.  That’s just silly!  She’s trying to get you to purchase the dress at (IMO) too high of a price knowing that the dress is outdated (as in not the 2010 season).  I would call the shop and ask them for the dress style #.  A reputable shop will give you that information, a shady one will not.  Sounds like they tore off the tag with the style number for JUST that reason!

I think is is an Alfred Angelo, just not a current one.

As for saying that dresses get “pulled if they’re really popular” there is some truth to that, but she’s kind of worded it wrong.  A designer does have to purchase the fabric, beads, etc. to create a dress.  If so many people order the dress that they run out of supplies to make it, and can no longer get it from anywhere, a dress will be discontinued.  I wouldn’t doubt that if that dress is from 2006/2007 they may be out of supplies to make it. 

I would take that photo to another bridal store and see if they recognize it.

It’s also illegal for dress shops to remove tags from their dresses. I can’t remember the specific sources, but I’m pretty sure I’ve read about it here and on the Knot before – there’s some kind of law where consumers must have access to the tags to verify the materials used, since that is often what determines the price. I would definitely find a more reputable store to buy your dress from. Good luck!
