I was on a tight budget and after hearing horrible things about Chinese knock off sites, I wanted to avoid them. I tried Ebay, but the dress I won had snags on it and some missing beadwork. I had to file a complaint to get my money back. Then I stumbled across this site and decided I would take a risk since the dress was the style I wanted, they listed the small issues the dress had and they were located here in the states.
The dress was exactly what I expected when I got it. No surprises! It is not a cheap replica, it is just a discontinued style that was a sample in their store. I love it and it was well worth the $300 I paid for it.
