  • THE STORY

    This Vera Wang Kathleen has been worn twice. I purchased this gown from an acquaintance in Washington DC who wore it to her wedding in Sep 2014. I then wore it to my wedding in August 2015. The tag size is a 14, but Vera Wang runs very small, so this a street size 6-8 as is. I am 5’5 and a very average medium build and was approx. 144 IBS at my wedding when I wore this dress (see image). I put the dress on a dress form that is a Size 6-8 Medium 34″ 26″ 35″. The material is very stretchy and can be altered down to fit virtually any smaller size. It can also stretch to accommodate different body shapes. The way the bodice fabric is folded makes for a very flattering dress. Bodice of the dress is a stretch Mikado silk weave fabric, the bottom of the dress is made of tissue organza and honeycomb tulle.
    The dress was initially purchased at Vera Wang in NY. Retail was $6,500, plus the cost of adding a bustle which brought the value to over $7,000. It has just been dry cleaned Nov. 2016, I can email a picture of the dry cleaning reciept. It was organically dry cleaned for $325 at Mclean Cleaners in the Washington DC area , they specialize in wedding dress cleaning you can look up their website to read about their process. There are some small smudges and stains on the inside lining of the dress that they could not get out (pictured) but this cannot be seen when the dress is worn. Some of the tulle and organza pieces are lightly frayed at the bottom but please note that this was the original look of the dress since the edges are raw cut.
    The dress comes with the original paperwork/tag from Vera Wang NY, and the numbered certificate of authenticity. It also comes with the original VW wood hanger and breathable dress bag.
    Dress has a bustle.
    This dress is sold as is and I can’t offer returns. I can only accept Escrow.com as payment. Viewings can be arranged if you are in the Washington DC area. Please ask any questions and I will respond promptly. I can email a lot more images since they limit how many I can upload. If the dress is to be shipped it will be shipped at buyer cost within US ONLY. It will be packed carefully in acid free tissue, and will be sent insured with signature required upon delivery.
