This dress was both my and my photographers' dream of a beautiful and truly one-of-a-kind dress. I worked directly with the designer to take her already unique, Mae (named after the song "Maggie Mae", for all of you fellow music lovers) dress even more unique to me and now, to you. The dress itself has a silk, spaghetti strap top and a hand-painted rose gold organza skirt with rose gold organza overlay. For an additional cost, it originally comes with an optional Chantilly lace, back button-up (real buttons!), cap sleeve top. I paid an extra $1000 to have the top hand beaded. I also paid extra to have pockets added to the skirt (you can see them a bit in the black & white photo). I also paid extra in alterations ($1200 in total) to add a color-coded French bustle. It was SUPER simple for my MOH to follow and she got me bustled in less than a minute and with absolutely no headache. I will ship the dress pre-bustled so you can see how it looks all bustled up and teach your person how to reverse the process on your big day (just match the like colors/beads).
I am 5'9" without shoes and I wore boots with the dress, so there should be ample length to the skirt to have it altered to your height, if you're shorter than I. I'm also generally a 6/8, but did have a little room left in the waist to allow space for a wedding food baby. I opted not to wear a petticoat, so my skirt fit more like an a-line, but you can certainly take this ballgown with the proper undergarments. That also means hip size is relatively irrelevant with this dress. I truly hope, at most, you'll only have to pay to have the skirt altered for your height. Make sure they take the length off of the bottom, as that should only run you $100 ish dollars as opposed to having it shortened from the waist, which will be much more costly as well as take from the ombre hand-painted skirt.
I've worn this dress only once and am the only person by whom it has been worn. I had the top hand spot-cleaned and, per the designer's instructions, did NOT clean the skirt, due to the hand-painted element. The skirt has only been lightly brush cleaned, but looks very clean. It should only need a light steam (again, be careful with the hand painting) once you receive it after shipping. It has been stored in a moth and dust-proof dress bag, in which it will also be shipped.
The asking price is for a package of the dress and the beaded top. A friend is currently using my veil as her "something borrowed", but I am willing to sell that as well. I also still have the headband. If you'd like it, I'm happy to throw that in at no extra cost. The retail price for just the dress is starting at $3440, for reference. All pieces are in like new condition. No tears that I've been able to see (there may be tiny ones hiding in the tulle overlay, but I haven't found any). Very light wear all-around. Honestly, you could give it a quick steam and wear it down the aisle today.
I bought this dress after meeting the designer and her husband (by whom the dresses are painted). I encourage anyone interested to check out the Chantel Lauren website and/or Instagram so you can get a feel for the love these two people share with each other as well as with their work. I wanted a dress made of love for a day full of love and that's absolutely what I got with this dress. I'm so excited for whomever is next in line with this lovely. Once you add your own special touches, I hope you enjoy engulfing yourself in this incredibly special piece of artwork that you will know is as unique to you as is your love.
And yes, this dress has been touched by a real (and rescued) sloth. Her name is Sienna and she is Heaven.
