I bought this dress a few weeks ago (August 2013). I found it at a bridal boutique that had a bunch of single samples on the rack. I thought it was pretty, elegant and simple but I already envisioned lace for my wedding. However, I put it on and it fit like a glove, didn’t need many alterations except hemming the bottom, and was flattering. They gave me a GREAT price for it – $600, and even stiched up some of the draping parts of the dress that were coming a bit loose. I am happy with the dress, yet I have not been able to shake the desire to wear lace for my wedding. I tried on a few more dresses, but still thought this one was the most flattering. However I recently found THE lace dress that I really want to wear instead at my wedding. I don’t want to do two dresses, because that’s too excessive for me. I figured I would give it a shot trying to sell this dress so that I’m able to get the lace dress instead.
This Arie Barcelona dress is in GREAT condition. It definitely has been tried on a bit, but never ben worn for a wedding. It’s off-white, more of a cream color. And if you’re the same size as me (street 8, sometimes 6), curvy, then you’ll love it. I still do love it, but it was never my original vision so I’m trying to sell it.
I live in San Diego, but the dress is already back home in Chicago where I’m getting married in 4 months. If you are from San Diego/LA and want the dress, let me know. I’m going home again soon and can always bring it back with me instead of shipping it.
Please let me know if you have any other questions!! Thanks friends!
