Beautiful silk satin A-line dress with empire waist, in great condition. It has a zipper down the back that is covered with tiny silk-covered buttons for a lovely, finished look. I received so many compliments on this gorgeous gown and I still love the elegant, classic look of it. This dress was purchased and worn once in the fall of 1996. It retailed for $2800 but I was able to buy a sample for $1500. The dress originally had rhinestones on the waistband (see photo of original ad) but they weren’t my style so I had them removed and the waistband flipped up. It is a very flattering design. I also had bra cups stitched into the lining so that I didn’t have to wear a bra but those can easily be removed without harming the dress whatsoever.
I had actually selected a different wedding dress but when I tried this one on, everyone in the room fell silent and said this was THE dress. It was stunning. I loved the feel of the luxurious fabric and how comfortable I felt in the dress on my wedding day. I could move and dance freely. The dress remained in great condition throughout the wedding day and was professionally dry-cleaned and boxed immediately afterward. I opened the box only recently to check its condition when I decided to sell it. I honestly feel that this beautiful dress has a timeless quality to it and I would love for someone else to love it as I did.
