      Impressive! I am still hoping to run across my dress like that too (eBay, PreOwnedWeddingDresses.com, etc.).

        it might be the only WR deal that comes out of this whole thing. I seem to be overbudget on everything else!

        not sure where you live, but last December my local Saks had an amazing sample sale with couture gowns from around the US. I almost picked up a $10k Vera Wang for around $2k.

        if I see anything about it I'll let everyone know.

          I live in Chicago, there's GOT to be something there! I'll keep an eye out - thanks for the tip.

            Yeah, I love that you did that and that it worked out fine. Question, did you go try on the same dress at a store before you ordered it on e-bay?Sometimes things look so much different hanging up than they do actually on a person. I would be nervous to buy with out trying on.

                No I had never seen the gown in person. I am a bit of an anomoly. I worked in a nicer salon in college so I've tried on hundreds of gowns. It really worked to my disadvantage because I am really picky about fabric and design, but simultaneously it would kill me to pay retail for a gown because I know how much they cost.

                They shipped it to me, I tried it on and it fit perfectly. I knew I wouldn't find "the one" but I am very happy with the one that I ended up with.

                ETA: I figured there wasn't much to lose even if the gown didn't fit or I hated it - it was only $230 and I'm sure I could re-sell it for that price.

                    I hope you guys don't think I'm RUDE for asking! (I am just really overwhelmed with the dress buying process so I'm trying to gather as much info as possible before I veture out there!

                    Can you tell what a neurotic person I am?!?

                    Thank you all so much for your help!
