I live in Austin, Texas so if you are in the central Texas area and would like to try on the dress, email me so that we can set something up! For local buyers, the dress will be final sale so I encourage you to try it on before purchasing!
For buyers outside the central Texas area who are unable to try on the dress in person, returns will be accepted under the following conditions: buyer must notify seller of her intention to return the item within 2 days of receipt (no exceptions). The item must be sent back within 5 days of receipt and in the exact condition in which it was sent. The buyer must provide a tracking number for the return shipment within 5 days of receipt. The return shipment must be insured for the purchase value and returned at the buyer's expense. The refund will not be provided until the seller receives the returned item and confirms its condition. If seller paid the initial shipping cost then it will be deducted from buyer's refund.
We maintained most of the original style aspects of the dress. I did have the neckline altered to a sweet heart neck line. The dress was taken in at the bust area, hemmed, and foam cups were added into the bust. The bustle was added to be an over-bustle.

The rhinestone belt is included with purchase of the dress.
The dress has been stored in a temperature-controlled, smoke-free, pet-free home. It has stayed within the original dress bag since our wedding. The dress has not had any discoloration. However, I do want to mention that the hem of the dress is dirty and has not been taken to a cleaner since our wedding. I have taken the dress to our local dry cleaner and they said that getting the dirt off of the hem would be no problem and I was quoted at $100 for the cleaning. **If interested in purchasing, I can have the dress cleaned for you before I send it for $549. Or you can purchase the dress at the listed $499 and have the dress cleaned yourself once you recieve it.
Essense of Australia D1852 Wedding Dress
Hello Sweet Bride,
Congratulations on your upcoming marriage and wedding day. What an exciting season you are in. Soak this time up and enjoy every ounce of this unique chapter in your life!
After many moves with my husband (and not needing to add to the amount of stuff we need to move), I am seeking to pass on my dress for someone else to enjoy. This dress has so many wonderful memories for me. It was perfect for our winter wedding in Evergreen, Colorado and made me feel radiant on our big day.
While the dress is an older design (I purchased it and wore it in 2015), its simple and elegant design makes it a very timeless dress. I love the subtle intricate details: the rhinestone belt, the simple button back with the occasional rhinestone button, the delicate over-bustle, and the structure of the bodice. The color of the dress is Ivory.
