Hi everyone! I am new to the Hive but feel like I’ve already been getting to know you all by reading through these boards feverishly. What a great and knowledgeable group you guys are! Hope you can help me with this: http://i00.i.aliimg.com/wsphoto/v1/708239594/Zuhair-Murad-Couture-Dresses-For-Sale-Cap-Sleeve-V-Neck-Split-Front-Off-White-Lace-Long.jpg
I’m kind of in *Lust *with this but can’t seem to find a back view on it. Anyone?
Btw, I’m leaning toward getting it made either through Babyonline, Clairol at Darling Husband Gate or Shades of Pale. Not sure who does the best lace work though as the lace is the thing that makes this dress AMAZING.
Thanks a bunch ladies.

Looked around online and there doesn’t seem to be any pics of the back view on this Zuhair Murad dress:(
Anyone have an opinion on who does better lace work though? Dressilyme, Light in The Box, Babyonline or Clairol on DHgate. Yes, I only want to go wholesale. On a VERY limited budget and mama needs her lace! hehe…

That dress is beautiful!
The first dress I ordered from dressilyme was a mostly full lace dress and the lace was okay but not amazing. I think they only tend to use a couple types of lace. Not too sure about the other places you were looking at though so I can’t offer an opinion on them 🙂 Hope that helps!

@joanne150406: Thanks for the answer my dear! I think I will end up taking my chances with Babyonline or Clairol on Dhgate as they have pictures of their actual work up online.

@raindancer I’m afraid I can’t make a recommendation, just chiming in to add that I adore Zuhair Murad! I considered having a replica made, but I was a bit nervous about ordering something I’d never tried on. Instead I downloaded a picture of my dream dress (the Laverna, in case you were wondering), saved it on my cell phone, and showed it to the consultants in the salons I visited. Obviously they couldn’t produce an exact copy, but they were able to bring me dresses with my favorite Murad elements, and I ended up with something pretty darn similar that I absolutely love! It may not be the dream dress, but it was well within my budget and I got to see it on my own body.
Whatever you end up deciding, best of luck! I’m sure you’ll look fab!

raindancer: Hello-did you ever end up purchasing this dress from Darling Husband Gate or one of the other online dress makers? I’m considering doing the same thing for one of my wedding dresses. I’m curious about the quality and how yours turned out. Thanks!
