I purchased this dress from the bridal salon in Marshall Fields on State street (now Macy’s sadly) in Chicago (they were the only one that sold Vera Wang as far as Marshall fields/Macys). It was the first dress that I tried on and I bought it the next day. This is such a classic. Just looking at it you know that it is a Vera Wang. I added the Audrey sash for the belt. It is gorgeous. I think it does so much for the dress. You could easily change to a different sash for the ceremony/reception as well- it is not attached. The tulle is draped beautifully in the bust and is light weight to move around in. I was comfortable all night! I planned on keeping this, but we live in the city in a condo and don’t have much space! My little boys things have taken over our house and it’s time to let someone else enjoy it. (I am willing to sell the dress without the sash for less if you prefer). I am open to negotiation with the price, I just went off of what most people are asking for this dress.
- Label Size: 6
- Street Size: 2
- Bust: 34
- Waist: 25/26
- Hips: 34/35
- Height with Shoes: 5'7, 5'10 with heels
- Alterations: I had the waist taken up slightly so that it sat more at the natural waist. It is more flattering. The alterations were done at the Dress Doctor in the Watertower in Chicago- they are well know to do the best job with Vera Wang. I only had to have the rest taken in slightly. The style is Aline, so even if your hips are bigger, as long as the bust fits, it will fit well. I left the zipper exposed in the back, but a lot of people have covered with buttons- very easily done. The bottom does have signs of wear because I had an outdoor ceremony and photos outside. I am fairly tall for my size, so if you're shorter than 5'7'', you could easily have the bottom hemmed.
