Here's the dress (Pics)
We got a replica of a Maggie Sottero Monalisa Royale. Overall it's a good dress. The appliques on the skirt are a mess and I'll end up replacing them with satin roses. It was packaged in the tiniest bag and very wrinkled. I have a steamer so I steamed most of the wrinkles out. There are a few spots of dirt, so I'll be getting it dry cleaned. It doesn't have the crystals on it like the real Maggie does, but for $190 vs $1090, I couldn't expect that. The dress smelled very much like chemicals.I'll be putting more crystals on the dress. I bought this dress as a surprise for my FSIL. She fell in love with the Maggie dress, but couldn't afford the price tag. If she doesn't like the dress I guess I'll just have to sell it.
Right out of the bag and very wrinkled.

Yes, I tried on my FSIL's dress... bad! bad! I know. We just so happen to be the same size. :-)
Long story short, I'm pleased with the purchase. It was a good bargain!
