  • THE STORY

    I spotted this dress online in Anne Barge’s retro Hollywood-inspired Fall 2013 line, and knew it was my dream dress right away. I tried it on at Nordstrom to make sure and then set out to find one used online, as the price tag new is incredible steep (Still around $4,000 even now!) I found a once-worn version in my size (6, I usually wear a 4 FYI). I was in heaven and you will be too. Be a part of this dress’s beautiful history! This dress looks like something out of a glamorous old movie, but it’s actually quite comfortable with a well-structured bodice and that beautiful flowing skirt. You can definitely dance in it! (And it looks great when you twirl!)

    Photos below show ME in this actual dress (sorry you can’t have my dad’s suit!), and a model in the original version of the dress.

  • ALTERATIONS

    -The original owner had one layer of tulle removed from underneath to make the skirt a bit lighter, and went further removing another couple layers of tulle. It is still a full skirt (as you'll see), but it lies a bit flatter across the hips, which I found more flattering on me (and likely would be on most non-model bodies!) -The original owner added padded cups in the bodice that can be easily snipped out if you don't like them. -The original owner shortened the straps by about a half-inch which I had my tailor tinker with so they would fall back off the shoulder as they're intended to. -The original owner took the hem up so she could wear flats (she is 5'6"). I wore heels (I am 5'5") and it was perfect, just grazing the ground. -I added a couple tiny (invisible) clips to the back tulle to help it lie flat / be more flattering. They really help! But they could be removed very easily by your tailor if you don't like them.

  • PRESERVATION

    The dress is stored in its original garment bag. The dress has NOT been professionally cleaned since my wedding (it was professionally cleaned just BEFOREhand of course). If you would like me to have it cleaned before sending to you, at your expense, I am happy to. I received it un-cleaned as well because it allows us to save money on such a fine gown... the thing is: we all HAVE to have our gowns professionally cleaned before our weddings... so why not do it once instead of twice? Again, if you feel skeeved out by it at all, I'll happily take care of it for you now.
