img_1315img_1314 Beautiful!  This vintage dress is most likely dupioni silk, although there was no tag to indicate.  I measure this as a size 6, and it fits the size 6 mannequin almost perfectly!  Measurements are approximately 32 bust, 26 waist, and 35 hips for the dress.  This beautiful gown features whiteappliques over a sheer layer and ivory silk (?).  Lower back zips close, and upper bodice fastens by nice, covered buttons.  This dress is in great condition, but I would suggest having it dry cleaned before wearing, unless you plan to cut off a couple of inches of length, because there is some dirt along the hemline from being tried on/worn.  This dress is a bargain at $129.00!  As always, contact me at sherry_george@comcast.net to purchase!

img_1312img_1313This is a beautiful and elegant dress in copper and aqua taffeta by Amsale.  These sell for $300+, however I’m able to offer this new, never worn dress for $89.  Listed as a size 10, it’s slightly roomier than traditional wedding size 10, with measurements 36 bust, 27 waist, and 38.5 hips.  Fully lined, and fabric has a slightly iridescent look.   This would be a great party/cocktail dress, or a fantastic mother of the bride dress!  Below knee length.  Contact sherry_george@comcast.net to purchase this incredible gown!

img_1291img_1293Another great dress I couldn’t resist!  This ivory chiffon number features a sweep train, and a bodice with pearls, crystals, and silver beading.  This is a 2 piece look, but is made as one!  There is some fabric wear from being tried on, and I’ve reflected this in the price of $99.00!  Measurements are 34 bust, 25 waist, and 36.5 hips!  As always contact me at sherry_george@comcast.net to purchase or ask questions!img_1292

img_1324img_1326This beautiful, incredible gown is all silk by St. Pucchi from their Sposa line.  The orignal retail price was $5,500 (yes, that was what I was told!)  However, it was used as a sample and has been tried on a few times, but not worn to a wedding!  Because of this, I found it at a great price and can pass it along for $199.00.  I would suggest the buyer of this dress to count on having it dry cleaned.

This is a mermaid style/trumpet skirt.  Measurements are 36 bust, 27 waist, and 38.5 hips.  This is a fitted dress, so don’t try to purchase if you’re bigger than these measurements.  It is my opintion that it can easily be taken in, however.  I love the gold and silver sequin trim down the front, which is very img_1325img_1328modern, and beautiful buttons down the back, along with the fabulous embroidered butterfly trim at the top of the halter straps at the neck.  There is a chapel train that is just along enough to be elegant.  I can’t say enough about an opportunity to own a dress by St. Pucchi at this price!  Contact me at sherry_george@comcast.net if you’re interested in purchasing!

img_1278img_1274I found a great deal on these dyeable victorian vintage wedding boots (never worn!), but they were badly discolored and really couldn’t be used for white, however champagne was an option.  Of course, any color could have been used, but I wanted them to be dark ivory.

To prep, I stuffed the shoes with plastic bags after removing the laces.  I used brewed black coffee (still warm!) and literally “painted” the coffee on the shoes as evenly as possible.  I then blotted with paper towels to get all the excess off and as dry as possible.  I dipped the laces in the coffee and left to dry.

As I was completing the project, my husband walked by and I asked him to guess how I’d done it, and his reaction was “why didn’t you use wine, since it’s the color of love? ” Now I’m thinking of doing another pair ASAP!  There are lots of natural products that can be used as dye, and if the shoe was created, as these were, to accept dye, why not?

I added the blue stones for the “something blue”, however I’m thinking of finding some beautiful silk ribbon to use as the laces.  I think that would be a beautiful touch!  As always, contact me at sherry_george@comcast.net.

I’ve gotten in tons of new stuff at the same time my (former) career job was coming to an end, and frankly, zapped all emotional energy.  But not to fret, I’ll be back with so many ideas on DIY bridal projects, savings ideas for weddings, and great deals on wedding fashions!

img_1211This vintage dress is divine and reminds me of something vintage, although isn’t that old.  Has beading all over, and would pack extremely well for a destination wedding.

I took this out of the box and hung it up and the wrinkles fell out immediately.  I’m offering this size 14 dress for $149.

The lining has some stretch to it, so it possesses some forgiveness on the fit!  Forgiveness is so nice!  Measures about 39″ at the chest.  As always, contact sherry_george@comcast.net to inquire or purchase!
