Help me find the designer of this dress?

Recommended Posts

ok, update!

 

i found a store in the pilsen neighborhood that carries the dress usually but just sold their sample recently. they have ordered a new one but it hasnt shipped yet and she isnt positive when it will arrive. so she said if i want to go try it on somewhere else to just see how it will fit, and i come back to her dress shop, she will not only MATCH the lowest price i can find from another authorized retailer, but she will INCLUDE the alterations in the price of my dress! so far the lowest price ive found from another authorized retailer is $420! woohoo! she said to order it in the ivory with ivory sash will take 6 to 8 weeks.

i must have called at least 20 salons today after her trying to find somewhere that has one i can try on.

 

eva's bridal out in oak lawn (yes i am seriously driving an hour away from where i live to go try it on) has a sample in stock and i made an appointment to try it on at 1 pm on Saturday, so by Saturday night i should be able to show you some pics!! woooo!

Just an FYI...i tried on some Jim Hjelm dresses at Eva's Bridal in Oak Lawn and the owner was SOOOO pushy. I was excited going there and on the way home I felt so terrible b/c I couldn't make up my mind. She was trying to get me so desperately to buy a dress but I wasn't ready. She made me feel terrible. So brace yourself. The sales woman there who actually helped me in and out of dresses was wonderful. Just the owner was so pushy it wasn't a great experience. I'm telling you this, just to give you a heads up. It sounds like you know you like this dress so I think you'll be fine. I wasn't sure what I was after at that time and she made me feel even more unsure. Needless to say, I didn't buy from her. Good Luck, not trying to scare you, just giving you a heads up so you are prepared. :)

actually, there's a dress shop in pilsen that offered to match the lowest price of another authorized dealer when i mentioned that another shop in NY was selling the dress for $420. and she offered to include alterations on the dress for that price too! i def dont wanna drive all the way out to oak lawn for alterations, but if she will beat the low price, include alterations AND get my dress in 6 weeks, i'll do it!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
