A tale of two dresses....


Dear ESB,

I have a tale of two dresses for you, followed by an opportunity for other ESB readers.

I fell in love with this orange ombre beauty [pictured above] via the wonderful (and extremely unhelpful) world of tumblr.  ... somehow I managed to track down the dress, and the artist who created it. I emailed her in hopes of being able to borrow it for my big day (we are on a budget and I was drastically trying to save some dough)... Months passed and I never heard back, so for fear of not having anything to wear, I went looking for something else... Enter Mara Hoffman: all seeing bridal gown...


This dress is stunning, it's to die for, and I'm tall and have small boobs so it actually worked on my body, problem solved, dress checked off the list. (1,200.00$ later).

A few weeks after I purchased the Mara beauty, I get an email from the lovely Martha Webb, expressing how much she'd love to loan me the gown, free of charge, for my big day... She sent it a few weeks later (from LONDON) and now I have the dress of my dreams, and I actually feel like this wedding is real.

This wedding is definitely real, as are all of the insane costs that are building up. So I would like to pass on the Mara Hoffman gown to another tall small boobed bride. It's a size 4 and has never been worn other than when I've tried it on a few times. Not sure if you've had anyone looking for this dress but I'm definitely ready to sell it, the sooner the better.

I will for sure be sending you lots of photos from the big day, which is 20 fucking days away.... (breeeeeath, keep breathing).

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

It seems you weren't the first one to obsess over that ombre dress.... But I have a feeling you'll rock it harder than this no-boobed model.

WE CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THE PHOTOS.



**Update: the Mara Hoffman is gone. Long gone.**

  1. There is a fabulous consignment wedding dress boutique in Salt Lake City called I Deux Bridal (http://ideuxbridal.com/) where I got my amazing second-hand wedding dress (for $500! Woo!). I bet you could find something similar wherever you live.

    2. Ugh, these incredulous responses to Kate's comments are getting so lame. Just stop.

    3. I actually find the comments complaining about the responses to Kate's comments to be the most irritating.

  6. I don't want to buy the Mara Hoffman dress, but I do want to borrow the ombre dress after you! I am a tall, flat-chested size 4. Is that possible? Is this the Sisterhood of the Traveling Wedding dress? I'd getting married June 22 and I will pay you...

    1. I'm three years into the future - just discovering this Ombre Dress and I'm in-love... Both with this Dress and the Man of my dreams - who I will be marrying in October 2016 - Australia. Could this be the Sisterhood of the Traveling Wedding dress? Let me know if you got it?

  7. You could sell it on preownedweddingdresses.com. Inventive URL, I know.

  8. If you still have this Mara Hoffman dress I have been searching for it EVERYWHERE I even e-mailed Mara Hoffman's PR department-that's how obsessed I am. I'm having a destination wedding and this dress is perfect I'm also tall and small-boobed. So I know it's been a long time but is there any chance you still have this dress?? I will gladly buy it from you if so! :) Please e-mail me eogegner@gmail.com Thanks!
