    After much thought, I've finally decided to sell my dress! I love this dress and hope that I can find someone else to love this dress as well!

    It is a Jim Hjelm, style 4311 (sorry, can't find any pics of it online!), it retailed for over $1700. Size is about a size 10.

    In my opinion this is the PERFECT DW dress! It has just enough structure so that you don't have to worry about your body - There is fine boning to keep you in tight and flattering rouching across the body and bust to hide any...uh...imperfections you may have (and really...who doesn't need that?).

    The dress is chiffon so it is really light and airy, I wore it in Mexico on a blisteringly hot day and felt cool and comfortable (considering that I was wearing a long dress in the heat of the day!). Under the skirt there is stiffer fabric to keep the dress off of your legs and give it some structure (which also makes you feel cooler because you don't have dress sticking to you!). If you plan on doing a TDD this also means that you won't see anything if the dress gets wet (top and bottom).

    This dress also traveled perfectly - I folded it nicely into the overhead compartment of the plane and hung it up at the hotel. After a few days in the heat all the wrinkles were gone and it didn't even need to be pressed.

    I'll post some of our pro shots (courtesy of Jon Rennie - Click the image to open in full size.

    The dress has a long chiffon train that is very light, flowy and PERFECT for a destination wedding dress or a trash the dress dress. The sash is made form sage green satin and is fully detachable. Actually...I made the sash myself. It's yours if you want it!

    As you can see the chiffon of the dress makes it perfect for your destination wedding! How would you not feel like a princess (or supermodel!) in this dress...?

    See! Sash is detachable and dress without the sash is beautiful and classic.

    I am 5'3" and wore the dress without heels. Here are some crude measurements....

    Dress would fit someone 34"-29"-37" with comfortable allowance for 1-2.5" either way.

    Train is 20" long (after skirt ends on ground) but could easily be made smaller if you wanted, from the top of the dress to the bottom of the skirt the dress is 50".

    Willing to answer any questions anyone may have. Hoping to find a good home for the dress I love!

    PM me with your best offer - but post any questions specifically about the dress here so others can see it.
