    The moment I first stepped into this playful yet elegant empire waist gown, I felt transformed to another place and era. I felt so completely comfortable and beautiful in a way that is shocking to recollect now. This was not the gown of my dreams — this gown went far beyond what I had ever envisioned for myself in dreams! Layers of ivory silk and chiffon accented with delicate scalloped lace and blushing rosettes bring to mind an imaginary scene: one of my favorite literary characters, Anne Elliot, blissfully departing Bath with her naval captain groom-to-be (not to betray Ms. Pettibone’s original Shakespearean muse). This gown made me feel young and innocent without breaching the limits of age appropriateness.

    It breaks my heart to say goodbye to this dress, but I am confident that it will make some other bride as happy as it made me on my special day. It is in near perfect condition with minimal alterations, and is very flattering on pear shaped body types. The gossamer shawl is detachable. Also, the Juliet has been retired from Claire Pettibone’s collection, so this may be your only chance to seize such a pretty and affordable couture find.
