Is there anywhere on earth I can find this dress 😩 I really want it for a wedding I'm attending next month and the pastel colours just won't cut it. Have searched online but the ones for sale on eBay seem to all be copies - I want the real thing for quality, have had bad experiences with knock offs from China.
Is there anywhere apart from the usual eBay/Amazon/polyvore/tradesy places that may have it? I think I've tried pretty much everywhere but fresh pair of eyes and all that grin
Or if any mn'ers have one in a size 8/10 they'd like to sell to a lovely new home please pm me
Thanks πŸ‘ŒπŸ½

Off to search there now
Thanks so much wink

Heaps of people are selling them on the pre loved millinery and fashion on the field facebook pages here in Australia. Everyone wore them for the races over the summer.

No worries, hope you get one. It's a truly beautiful dress.

The Self Portrait dresses are amazing aren't they!
Can't find that dress in red though, sorry.

Also try vinted!

There's one on ebay right now

RhombusRiley Thu 07-Apr-16 11:16:52

OOps sorry! Didn't see the thing about knock offs.

UsernamesAreAPainInTheBalls Thu 07-Apr-16 11:25:42

Oooh thanks everyone am scouring all of these as we speak

Has anyone actually bought one of the knock offs on eBay? If it looked identical that would be great I'm just worried it'll look cheap

They are indeed beautiful- fingers crossed

Also a quick question- what do you all think of the pink/nude colour? I'll try to attach a pic? I love the red but the pink is available everywhere so may have to settle
I'm blonde which is why I was leaning more toward the red

RhombusRiley Thu 07-Apr-16 11:34:32

I love that pink. I think if you accessorise it in a bright and funky way it could be fabulous for a wedding. That colour pink can actually look great with red so red shoes or bag could be amazing.

UsernamesAreAPainInTheBalls Thu 07-Apr-16 11:37:43

I'll have to go and try it on I think. I agree about red and pink that's exactly what I was thinking
I was goin to wear these nude louboutins with it so would already have a hint of red πŸ‘ŒπŸ½

Swoon. blush
Those shoes will look gorgeous with the soft pink dress.

TheCraicDealer Thu 07-Apr-16 11:44:33

I was thinking about getting it in the pink for a wedding in the summer and then to re-wear at a few work events- the red sounds beaut!

UsernamesAreAPainInTheBalls Thu 07-Apr-16 11:59:29

I know I loooove the shoes 😍 Ok so I'm gonna go into town over the weekend and try the pink - now just to lose 3 stone and somehow tone my arms to Madonna proportions in a month πŸ™‰
Thanks for the opinions everyone

UsernamesAreAPainInTheBalls Thu 07-Apr-16 12:00:45

TheCraicDealer I'm guessing your Irish too πŸ˜‚ The red is amazing I know but it's like finding hens teeth by the looks of it
They have the pink in brown Thomas so I'm heading there to try it and seeπŸ‘ŒπŸ½

My friend bought a knock off one from Ali express. It's really really good. If you do buy from there message and ask for photos of the real dress. Also read the reviews carefully. I'll link the one she bought now

Oooh thanks for that πŸ‘ŒπŸ½ I'm raging now I bought one from eBay last night that aliexpress one looks real good. I was so wary of buying from there cos you know the pics online of people buying dresses that actually look ridiculous when they arrive confused
I scoured eBay and like your saying read through all the reviews etc so I'm praying the one I bought looks as good as the one you linked it was around the same price too so hopefully
I'll post a pic on here when it arrives πŸ‘ŒπŸ½

Good luck! Do show it off when it comes. I might buy one as a slimming target dress for summer weddings.
