Alita Graham 7810-ball gown. I received so many comments about this dress...definitely the hit of the wedding! I tried on dresses in LA, NY, DC, MD and VA and nothing else even came close...so I made a second trip to Kleinfelds to buy it! Dress was $2600 + Alterations were an extra $800 and cleaning was $200, so my investment in the dress is $3600. Make an offer!
I had the dress lining in the front hemmed so that it didn't drag in the front. I also had the "train" shortened because it looked ridiculous pinned up. It now has the clean ball gown/ A line look without needing to be pinned in the back during the reception. Alterations were $800 because I had the best person in Georgetown handle the dress to make sure nothing was damaged. :)
I have a Vera Wang White Comb and Belt that are gorgeous. Cost ~$300 together, would sell both for $150.
DRY CLEANING / PRESERVATION
Dress has been professionally dry cleaned and is in a sealed bag from the cleaner to ensure no creases until the new buyer tries on/picks up. It can be preserved in a box, but the cleaner did not recommend this if the dress will need to be accessible.
