    Silver Stilettos

    Hi! I do still have these...but I just posted them on Ebay this afternoon...I think I can cancel them there if you are really interested since no one has bid yet. I totally forgot I had posted them here a while back. I will have to check about the heel being metal (I'm not home at the moment) but I would not say they are wobbly (as long as you are comfortable walking in heels, I remember it being pretty sturdy for such a skinny heel. For me, the shoes were very uncomfortable at the front straps...dug into the sided of my toes, but I also have wide feet. Let me know if you are still interested.

  4. Hi Ladies, This dress was purchased in November of 2008 from a boutique shop. Cost was $1500, and I payed $150 to alter it to my size. Dress tag says size 12, but has been altered to a size 2ish. My measurements at the time were 34-36 bust, 26-28 waist, and 36 hips. I am 5'4 and planned to wear 3" heels for my wedding, so it is hemmed to about that length. THIS DRESS HAS NEVER BEEN WORN. I decided to go with another dress for my wedding. It was purchased off the rack, so has been tried on, but when I bought it I had it dry cleaned. It has been sitting in a dress bag in the back of my closet since, so it is pretty wrinkled now (as you can see in the pictures). I would be happy to take additional pictures for anyone that is interested. I'm going to list this at $1000, but I am very open to other offers. I'd like to get some of my money back, and it is a really nice dress. Jasmine Haute Couture 100% hand woven silk (with polyester lining) T843R is hand written on the tag (style #) Silk taffeta, Full A-line gown with V neckline and cross tiered pleated bodice, Swarovski crystal beaded embroidery detail on straps with a tiffany train

    Quote: Originally Posted by Thomasjsgirl I have to agree with you and found there were more than a few key shots missing from ours.

I can't say that even one was original, and I hardly have any of just my husband and I and of those few, I can truly say none wowed me. NONE. Hiring her was the biggest planning mistake I made. As for the $150 refundable deposit -- I missed out on that too! GEESH!!!!! It's funny that you mention the "amateurish-ness" because when we first got the pictures I thought the same thing. And then I looked through them again and was like ok, I guess there are some good ones. But the more I see pictures on the forum, it makes me want to cry. I was on a budget and I wish I hadn't sacrificed my photos because of it. Looking back now I would have payed anything to have amazing pictures. I thought I did enough research at the time, but I guess not. There are some pictures I love, but they are not anything different, and I wish there were so many more. I guess I have to be happy to have something, and I just hope we are able to help someone else and save them from disappointment. And I am so sorry that I didn't post something earlier.

    WARNING Misti Abner aka Douglas Studios

    Misti was our photographer for our July 2009 wedding in Mexico. I had some issues with her as well, but made a lot of excuses for her at the time. She was professional, and we did get all our pictures on a disc. I hadn't ordered anything extra so I can't speak to that. I was a recipient of the special she ran on BDW and only had to pay travel costs. I was able to split her flight with another bride getting married a few days after us, and I think I ended up spending $1300 total. Overall I was happy with our photos, although there were a few key shots that were missed. Getting the discs took longer than promised, and Misti was difficult to get ahold of. When we finally received the disc it was only 300 pictures total. I was disappointed both with the amount, knowing that many more were taken, and with the quality of some of them. In some pictures, they were over-brightened and my dress blended right in with the sky. After looking at pictures my family took, I realized the sky really was as blue as I remembered it, and not white! After contacting her, she did agree to send a disc with all the images taken, as long as I promised not to hold the quality against her since they would be unedited. Of course I agreed because I wanted the pictures, and we did receive the disc. When we received the disc, it had 900 images total, all unedited as expected. However, I realized how much work was put into the editing process. Every single one of our pictures that was taken outside had little gray spots all over the image. I am not a professional and do not know if this could have been avoided, but to me it seemed as simple as wiping the lens with a cloth. Being new at destination weddings, maybe she was unaware of the added complications of humidity, but maybe that's just the way it is. I did appreciate the work she did in editing the 300, because it must have been a large amount of time (although it seemed with some that she just brightened it to the max to make the spots disappear). I spent over an hour to edit the spots out of just one picture. She had also agreed to re-edit a few pictures, but never did. She also never refunded our deposit of $150, which was to hold the date until we booked her travel costs. I didn't even realize we were supposed to get it back until I looked at the contract again after the wedding. Once I contacted her about it, I never heard from her again. Luckily we have all the pictures, and it was only $150, but still! I am so sorry to everyone who has lost so much more!
  9. You're welcome Misty! I still have the tank top...
  10. I like the wine glasses, but I received a couple of similar ones as gifts and have yet to use them. When I have a glass of wine I reach for the classic (clear) glasses. I'm worried about being able to throw them in the dishwasher, so they just sit on my shelf. Love the idea, but I think the jewelry box is more practical and will get more use.
