For some reason my future mother in law does not like the dress I bought. It is a fabulous dress and I love it. Unfortunately, she does not feel the same. I just purchased this dress at a final sale on 5/29/10. It is a Tara Keely dress #2912 and retails for $2700 and I bought it for $2300 but I will take $1700....however I'm willing to take the best offer as I need to buy another dress. The dress is in great condition for a sample - I wasn't even planning to dry clean it. Please let me know if you are interested.
