My “dream” dress that I never got to try on is Amy Michelson “Grace.” I will always love this gown, but it was just not meant to be. Amy Michelson is no longer in business and I could not find anywhere to try it on–and I could not fathom paying over $4K for a used dress I had never seen in person. I did find another dress that I fell absolutely in love with, and I have no REAL regrets, but I will always love this dress:

@cardus: Ok, so… This is a little awkward for me. Um, I have a dress but I’m not engaged. I WAS engaged years ago, but things didn’t work out. I purchased a dress back then, and I’m still in love with it and will wear it when J and I get married (which will be soon… I hope).

This is not me in the photo, btw. It is the only photo I could find online of the dress because it was discontinued 5 years ago. I love it! The photo does not do it justice. It is lace-up in the back, and there are gorgeous swirls on the bodice, and sparkles throughout the tulle. It is a Mori Lee gown.

I didn’t like the restrictive feel around the knees because of the mermaid shape, though I didn’t try this actual dress – Blue by Enzoani ~ Cambridge

I can guarantee that I can neither afford it, nor can I drag it around on my person all day, but hot damn do I love the absurdity of this ridiculous dress.  And all the others.

Reem Acra.  Out of my budget, but this dress is so beautiful.  I love everything about it, especially the choppy tulle skirt.

I was competely in love with this Oscar de la Renta from the Fall 2008 collection.  I tried on a different Oscar for fun and I think I’m too long in the torso for his dresses.  Still, I adored this one enough to ask about it.  The manager at the salon said she didn’t think it was made for wide distribution…she never saw it at a trunk show.

Making a gown just for the runway is cruel!  🙂

Check out the lace…it’s incredible!
