    I've filed a dispute through my credit card company, who is now working WITH PayPal to a) get a refund and B) check their clientelle history on PayPal to see if they should even be selling through it anymore.  They are going after both SoP AND their bank to get a refund and I trust that the credit card company will be pretty ruthless, as THEY have refunded me and are getting money back for themselves. 

     

    I've contact SoP several times, it's weeks past the date the dress was supposed to be here, and they won't respond.  I'm not interested in dresses from them anymore, as it will be too late to wear them by the time they get here - I just want a refund.  If anyone else has had a bad experience, I encourage you to contact PayPal and report them, leave a written online review, and anything else you can.  They've scammed me and, it seems, several other people out of hundreds of dollars, not to mention royally screwed up my wedding attire plans and left me scrambling.


    I am sure u will like this page on FB. It's called  "Cheat by shade of pale bridal" (simply search on FB). Please find, like and support!

      It looks beautiful on! I think the decision to nix the Dakota was a good one, this one is definitely perfect for a Vegas wedding! And I love that skirt :)

This one is slightly too tight, but I've also put on a couple pounds in the last couple weeks :~/

       

      I was originally going to have a Dakota replica done by SOP but since I decided not to go with them...this dress called out to me instead. I was completely anti-bling the week before I ordered it, i don't know what happened! It doesn't really resemble original Lazaro design, but I love it :) For the price, it is PERFECT for my Vegas wedding! Sorry the pics aren't the greatest! I had to be a photo ninja in poor lighting so honey didn't see it!

        Here are pics of a copy of 'vera wang gemma' dress that my cousin brought from Jasmines. Really happy with it and the process was really easy..although there was a little bit of back and forth emailing but they were always so helpful. No upgrade on the craftmanship and materials. Highly recommend Jasmines! Just wanted to say thank you to all who have posted on this valuable thread and thought I'd try do my bit to help anyone wanting to get a replica..

            For the brides who went with dressilyme, exactly how did you get your photo over to them? I don't see an option on the website.

            I ordered a knock off of Sottero and Midgley Clarice which your dress reminds me off with a few differences.  I ordered my dress from Jasmines bridal and could not have been happier!  I have added a few pictures of my actual dress

                I'm really considering Dressilyme.com for my dress..anyone had a bad experience.  Can people post pics of their dresses from there!  I would appreciate any feedback!

                  Thank you... let me know if you have any other questions or want to see some of the pictures that they sent me which is a bit easier to see some of the details.

                    Just purchased from Landy.

                    I've heard more positive reviews than negative, so I've got my fingers crossed and am ordering the dress about 9 months before the wedding, "just in case".
