Vera Wang Luxe 'Alice' Gown (8.5k) - for sale, best offer

I'm selling two beautiful dresses:

1) a gorgeous Nicole Miller coral/copper colored silk gown. Very old hollywood and a classic sillouette. Would be perfect for a rehearsal dinner or other wedding event.

2) a Vera Wang wedding gown from the Luxe collection "Alice."

This beautiful Vera Wang Luxe Alice tulle gown is a work of art, with overlay of bias silk taffeta bands and textured floral corsage at waist. The back is as gorgeous as the front, with covered buttons the full length of the dress. Lightweight, slimming, and sophisticated in every way, the dress is made of multiple layers of lightweight silk. My photographer said this was one of the most unique dresses he had seen. It was a very vintage Anthropologie feel with all the quality of Vera Wang. Message for
more pictures.

I had the dress hemmed, taken in at the hips and bust (current measurements are below), had cap sleeves/straps added out
of matching silk net fabric, had a three-point bustle made, and had b-cups put in. All are included, but can be easily removed as well. There is room with the fabric to go up by one size (street size 8/9) or to go down 1-2 sizes (street size 2-4) without compromising the structure or silhouette of the dress. The work was done by the best Bridal seamstress in the Boston area and is flawless. 

The gown was worn gently twice: once at my wedding, and the next day for photos. It is in excellent condition with no signs of wear after cleaning and preservation.

Label size: 12
Street size: 6
measurements: 36-29-37
The dress has been cleaned, preserved in a preservation box, and ready to wear again!

Both dresses are for sale on my ebay page, BUT I'm happy to take a best offer here (even if that is below what I'm selling them for there). I could use the extra closet space and also the extra money, and would love to pass along either dress to someone interested. Shipping would be from Ohio.

For Sale - size 16-18 Bree dress by Amanda Wyatt (London area)

Hi all,

I would like to sell my Bree wedding dress as it is really just sitting around and I am running out of storage space! I got married in 2009 and the dress is from the Amanda Wyatt collection from then. The name of the dress is 'Bree' and there are some stock pictures online. Here is one picture:

More photos available online, or if you email me I can send you worn pictures.

The dress has been worn once and professionally dry cleaned. It has a lace up bodice and detachable panel at the back and will therefore comfortably fit anyone within the size range 16-18 or more without needing to be altered. It has jeweled embelishments all over the bodice and the bodice gives a 'lenghthening' effect to your figure when you wear it. The train can be clipped up for ease of movement or worn on the wrist with a little wrist strap.

I was married in Greenwich and have some pictures of me wearing the dress which I will email to anyone interested in buying the dress. Evidence of me actually having the dress and not being a scammer are in the photos as you can see the St Alfege's church in Greenwich in the photos.

I have good feedback as a seller on another online sales community I use and also on my eBay.

I originally paid £850 for the dress and ideally would like to sell it for £500, though I realise this is unrealistic I would be open to reasonable offers. I will be happy to either meet up for a sale or post the dress anywhere. Payment methods I will accept are only paypal or bank transfer. If you pay by paypal I will not be able to cover the paypal will need to do this.

Thanks for reading, and let me know if you have any questions

Hi everyone :)

Awhile back, someone emailed me about taking over the moderator responsibilities for this community.

At that time, I wasn't looking for anyone to do so.

Now, however, I am. So If anyone would be interested in keeping this community up, please reply. Serious offers only!

This community started on a whim, and took off for awhile... and now it seems to have dulled down. And I'm stepping as far away from everything wedding as I can - divorice does that to a girl.
