I fell in love with this dress when I saw it in a Martha Stewart Weddings magazine! I immediately started calling local bridal salons to find it, and as soon as I tried it on, I knew it was “The One.” As a curvy girl, I felt so much more comfortable in cap sleeves than I did in all of the strapless gowns I tried on. And the detail of the sleeves makes the dress so special and unique! The tulle skirt is so ethereal and beautiful! This iconic dress has been worn on the red carpet by Olivia Wilde and Julie Bowen. It’s truly a modern classic. You’ll feel like a princess on your wedding day in this dress!

- Alterations: I bought this dress at a Reem Acra trunk show at a local bridal salon. A Reem Acra representative suggested that I have the bodice cup "opened up" to accommodate my 34D chest so I received the dress from Reem Acra with that customization. The dress was taken in at the waist and on the sides of the bodice, and the sleeves were tailored to sit just right on my shoulder. The length was cut to skim the floor with my 3" heels on. I am 5'6" without shoes. All alterations were done by one of the best seamstresses in Houston. I got a little too aggressive on the dance floor and tore the sleeve away from the dress when I raised my arms completely over my head. As I mentioned, the sleeves were tailored to fit on my shoulder, and any bride would need to have the same done. Rather than having the sleeve repaired, I'm selling "as is" at a discount so the buyer can have the sleeve repaired and tailored to fit her at the same time. Detailed pictures of the state if the sleeve are included for your inspection.
