Is it That Dress?



I have had this picture hanging up in my room for months. I ripped it out of a Martha Stewart Wedding magazine who knows how long ago, and I would give anything to find it in a store somewhere and try it on. I am turning to all of you, pleading for you to rack your brains (and maybe rifle through a few issues) to find the maker of this dress! Did that crazy Martha Stewart just whip it up herself for the issue? Tell me this isn't the case!

Don't mind crazy me adding a little heart up in the corner of the picture. That is how much I love this dress.

i love love love love love this gown. it's a vera wang. but i have never been able to locate a style number or see the dress in person. :(

Carol said...

Wow !!! That really is a gorgeous dress.

It's beautiful. And it feels timeless...

elizabeth-of course I would fall in love with a completely impossible to find vera wang. I could never have anyone custom make it either, no one can make dresses like she can.

carol-I know, isn't it gorgeous? If only it was on me instead of that dress mannequin.

east side bride-That is the best word to describe it. Timeless. 100 years from now I will never regret a dress like that.

Jenna, this dress was ALL I wanted, and I, too, thought it strange that Martha didn't credit her in the issue (at least in a very obvious spot). Glad you're enjoying my Seattle ideas! :)

Angel said...

Timeless is exactly the word. I love the silhouette...it's similar to the one I wore and oh so beautiful.

Jenna said...

holly-well if so many people want the dress, why isn't someone else making it? Martha should. She should make that dress.

angel-What was your dress? I would love to see it!

It is a lovely dress!

It is a gorgeous dress indeed. Why don't you take the picture to a seamstress and ask if she can reproduce "something like this" for you? If you can find the material, you'd probably spend less than you would buying the dress ready-made, and then you'd have your timeless dress!

Jenna said...

botticelli babe-I have thought about that so many times, but it is one of those times when I love the dress so much that I know no interpretation would ever do. I think I would be disappointed in the end unless the seamstress was able to create exactly this dress. There is someone in my area advertising frequently on Craigslist though. I think I will send the picture over to her and see what she thinks.

Wow, I got married in 2006 and I saw that same photo in a Martha Stewart Wedding mag and fell in LOVE. I, of course, couldn't afford it. But I found a similar style from Maggie Sottero. It was strapless and I had straps added on. It wasn't quite as exquisite as the original but it was a lovely dress and I was very happy with it.
