What do you think of this knock-off?

Recommended Posts

I've tried on the original and it looked great (I actually never though this mermaid-y style would look good on me). I'm just nervous that the knock-off (which I can't try on) won't look good.

 

A lot of bridal shops won't let you take pictures... I wonder if ML will if I go in and say that they're for my mom... and that I can't buy anything without her opinion (of course I went with my mom to try the original on).

 

Jenetta - which vendor is making your dress? Send us a link!

Kash--

Have you ML sneak a picture of you in the dressing room. Send the sales assistant off to get another style or something and take a few pictures.

 

Then take it to a dress maker to have it made. I think that is the best idea!

 

If you look in the yellowpages, you can usually find a bridal dress maker in your area. Go meet with her (or him), have them show you pictures of their work, show them your picture. The good thing about having dresses made is that the alterations and all fittings are included ing the price. Alterations are expensive! Plus you can pic the fabric (touch & feel it) first and pick everything out. I think this is your best bet. If you are going to take this route, you should get on it pretty quickly!

I think you may be right! Natasha gave me the name of a dressmaker here in Studio City near where I work. I need to go take some secret pics! Good point about the alterations being included. The other thing I think might be better is that I think I can ask them to change things when stuff doesn't look right or fit the same...

 

I wonder if the dressmaker could "swing by" a store that carries it and pretend to be browsing and just check it out... hmmmmm.....

Go an try out the dress with the dres maker there! That way she can see the dress and you can take secret pictures. Just send the attendant to get other dresses for you!

hee hee hee... not a bad idea!

 

The designer is having a sample sale this weekend and their samples are 40 - 80% off. IF they have the dress and IF it's in my size and IF it's 80% off then I'll buy it! Otherwise I may have to start using some of our deceitful tactics!

I know! I am terrified that when I go to the sample sale it's going to be this crazy b*tch-fest with people clawing and biting... yikes!

 

Well they let only 30 people in at a time so maybe it won't be TOO bad!

 

Yuck - I hate this type of thing. But like Ann said, "A brides gotta do do what a brides gotta do!"

and IF they have it and IF it's in my size (6) and IF it's 80% off, you'd better call me 'cause i'm gonna give you my cc# so you can buy it for me! lol
