Mikaella by Paloma Blanca
This gown features all-over lace in a natural color with lining in Latte (slightly blush undertone) that accentuates the intricate lace beautifully. The gown is a fit and flare style with a plunging scalloped lace neckline with just the right amount of sheer fabric from the midpoint of the neckline down to ensure a flattering fit while maintaining all the elegance and drama. It has a pearl & crystal beaded belt at the waistline that complements the dress perfectly and a chapel length train.
The open, low back with scalloped edges and partially sheer lace might just be my favorite part. This dress is stunning from every angle, the fabric has great movement, and the design works well if you plan on dancing and enjoying your wedding as much as we did! I absolutely love this dress and felt incredible wearing it at our resort wedding in fall 2016.
It was professionally cleaned and has been carefully stored in a preservation box. I have decided that what I would love most is to see this dress have another day in the spotlight making another bride as happy as it made me. This dress is still available new and is showcased online by the designer.
Alterations: I had the straps shortened slightly, the length taken up a few inches, bra cups added that could be easily removed if needed to accommodate a fuller bust, and a French bustle option added. For reference, I am 5'4", 120#, 32B, and wore this dress with approx. 3" heels as shown in pictures.
Condition: There appears to be one bead missing on the front of the belt just left of center and several beads missing on the back of the belt left of center, which could easily be replaced. On close inspection, there also appears to be a very small area of slight discoloration on the right front of the bodice that is hard to detect in bright daylight and likely would be imperceptible to most people in most lighting. The lace is in good condition.
