  • THE STORY

    My story is probably a bit unusual. I got engaged in August 2013 and although we did not set a date, I started looking for a dress almost right away since I am very indecisive when it comes to big purchases like this. I have searched for the dress in Washington DC and Baltimore area for many months. I even went to Pronovias in NYC since I love lace dresses! But the price was ridiculously expensive. Then I went to Europe to teach at a university there in 2014. That is when my best friend made an intervention and we went to the fancy Oleg Cassini store in Istanbul thinking I could never buy anything there in my price range. By the way, OC has its own boutiques in Europe unlike the US.

    As probably the 50th wedding gown I tried overall in this journey, this one was the winner. I had never believed in “the dress moment” until I actually really felt that this dress was it. I bought it within the same day and wore it to my wedding. As much as I love this dress, I think every bride should look for their dress that will make them very happy as I felt wearing this dress at my wedding. Hence I’m selling it hoping the buyer will have as happy a wedding and marriage as I have.

    This is a ball gown BUT if you don’t wear the petticoat, it can be a very elegant almost A-line dress. The lace is so soft and nice and flows so nicely and the cut makes the waist look so thin! I wore it for less than 4 hours on concrete floor (no grass stain or anything) and there is no tear or wear to the best of my knowledge. The beads, crystal and pearl, are still intact on the chest and the lace looks beautiful.

    I honestly think this is the best way to own a designer dress, I think I was only able to buy this dress for this price because of the currency difference and because it was right before the new season gowns would arrive. Had I researched better online, I’d have bought a dress here or another reputable online used gown store.

  • ALTERATIONS

    The dress was very long. I am 5'7'' wearing 3" heels, so the dress had to be seamed to fit these measurements. I think it was still a bit long but because the lace is so gorgeous and I wanted it to flow to the tail with a nice angle, I did not want it to be be seamed radically. The height should fit anyone who's a bit taller than me and anyone who's my height without alterations. I was 140 pounds at the time of the wedding and I bought a size 42 dress (12-14 in American sizing) since I wore a size 34DD bra. So while the dress fit fine in the chest, it had to be altered in the waist about an inch both sides. I think lost more weight unintentionally before the wedding and must have lost it off of the breasts so the dress ended up fitting loosely. Still, I got so many compliments for the quality of the lace, the tail and the ornaments on the chest that I could not have asked for a better dress. I also have the petticoat to make it look fluffier.

  • PRESERVATION

    About a month after the wedding, I sent in the dress to David's Bridal for about $150 and had it professionally cleaned and preserved in a nice box. I have not opened it to make sure it's preserved. It came with DB warranty - I still keep the receipt. Speaking of receipts, the dress receipt was in foreign currency and I have not thought of keeping it. So I calculated and wrote the $ amount in the listing the way I remember the exchange rate.
