When I found the option on ebay and then read reviews or saw pics there was no way that I could pay full price again. I am picking between 2 dresses right now but I don't think the seller is the same. I think you'll be very happy with the end result... keep me posted

She also did a Lazaro knockoff for a good friend, that is how I found her. The dress was flawless.
However, she is not cheap. I think she was making a $4K dress for like $2,800. But seriously, it was SO GORGEOUS, and it's tailored to your body, so no $$ needed for alterations.
She doesn't have a website and basically gets all her business via word of mouth.
Her name is Terry. She lives in Wilmington, DE. PM me if you want her phone number, okay?

The ivory also varies so much it can look yellow some times. So I decided I wanted a champagne.
After much research, I bit the bullet and purchased a knock off from www.peridress.com A chinese company that makes knock off dresses. I received it in about a month but it was far from perfect. A little small but I did get my color perfect and the lace up back. The dress was more a-line than mermaid but the fabric was a nice bridal satin (the Melissa is silk but the Marisa is satin) with good lining.
I've done the alterations myself (thanks to my seamstress grandmother teaching me well!) and now it's my dream dress!
The dress cost $104.99
The alterations from a seamstress would have cost $450 including adding the bustle.
So for less than $600 (actually $104.99 DIY) I got my dream dress in the right color far cheaper than I could have found it anywhere else. By the way, except for reselling it after the wedding, who's reading the label?
