This is the beautiful Rue De Seine Ash Gown, from their Classic Collection, bought at Leonie Claire in Brighton, UK, in February 2017.
This is truly a DREAM dress, which I had the pleasure to wear in my wedding in Florence, Italy, in August 2017. Many of my guests said they never saw such a beautiful dress in their lives, and I do believe them! You can see how incredibly beautiful it is in the pictures I posted (although is even better in person!).
The lace in this dress is absolutely gorgeous. Quoting the website, "it is made in a delicate French Lace alongside a heavier guipure lace to create an elegant, yet youthful aesthetic. The Ash gown has a form fitting structured bustier with a dramatic hip yoke. Fullness kicks out from this low hip point into a lace and mesh layered full skirt and train".
As you can see in the pictures, the dress comes with arm bands that are completely optional. I did wear for the ceremony, but took it out later.
Size Information & Alterations: The dress is a size UK 8, with D cups. It was professionally hemmed by London Fitting Rooms to fit my height of 165cm (and PLUS considering my high heels of around 5cm). The dress was taken in to be more form-fitting around the rib-cage/waist. My measurements as taken by the dress shop were: bust 79cm, under bust 66cm, waist 63cm, high hip 79cm, low hip 93cm. The arm bands were adjusted to my arm size, but I believe it can be re-adjusted if needed.
Preservation & Flaws: The dress has been professionally dry cleaned by the Buckingham Dry Cleaners in London. Overall there are no marks or tears - only tiny stains in the inner silk layer, close to the hem, which can not be seen in the outside fabric/layers.
The dress does look brand new & comes with the beautiful Rue De Seine garment bag.
I really can't wait to see another happy bride in this dress!
