Hi ladies!
Well after seeing bronniejade''s amazing ebay score of that beautiful maggie sottero dress, I decided to start checking out ebay for dresses and found this fabulous creation!!! Through my dress research (yes not engaged but very much wedding obsessed), I continued to look at Allure gowns and loved them because of their use of crystals (gotta have some bling!) Well i just WON the dress!!!!!!
I was so nervous when I was bidding that I was shaking! I can''t believe I won it, and at such a great price. I will post pics when it arrives.

wow, sounds awesome. And, if the girl is being honest, I think it is nice there is not a bad story behind it!

Gorgeous dress, and I bet you wouldn''t have a hard time reselling it if it doesn''t fit or you don''t end up liking it for whatever reason.

WOW!
That is a beautiful gown!
Isn''t eBay wonderful?!


It sure is!!! Thanks for inspiring me!
I thought my FF would think I was nuts for getting the dress before we were engaged but he didn''t react that way at all (I didnt let him see it btw). I still can''t believe I got this dress for this price, the cheapest I found it online was over $600, and 12 weeks for delivery time! Once I''m engaged I hope to get married ASAP, I have no desire to be a bride in waiting very long (after 8 yrs of being a girlfriend I have no desire to prolong it!) So hopefully the dress fits well and I will have one less thing to worry about when the time comes.

Well the dress arrived!!! It is beyond gorgeous, brand spanking new, still had the tag on it from the bridal shop, $1227. I can''t believe i paid less than $360 for it!!!! it''s a lil big in the boob area and a bit tight, but i am trying to lose weight anyway. Also it seems to be made for someone with a longer torso, the boob part comes up a bit higher than i''d like. Can a seamstress fix this? k, here are pics!

Wow, it looks great on you! I think a good seamstress can fix just about anything.

It''s gorgeous, DMBsGirl! I must say, I looked at the eBay pictures first and wasn''t very impressed, but it looks fantastic on YOU! You two have really got me thinking about dresses on eBay now, but I think I''m a little too chicken.

Congrats on a beautiful dress!
