Alyce Designs Red Sweetheart Ballgown


Shipping to United States: Free

It was a helluva Fall semester for Meredith- nearly flunking Chemistry AND History, got into a terrible car accident, had a massive falling out with her BFF, Slater, and to top it off, the college freshman was dumped by her douchebag of a boyfriend (Two years wasted on that human piece of garbage). The thought of going home for the holidays was the furthest thing from Mere's mind, until after Exams Week was finally over. Freshly single and down a close friend, the stressed co-ed plans on a quiet holiday break with very little interruptions between her and Netflix, some homestyle cooking, and quality time with her mom. That is- until our gal realizes that the annual St. Stanislaus Gala for the Homeless, an event her Polish family has attended for as long as she can remember, is next week. During the long drive back home, Mere calls her mom to see what's on the agenda during her holiday stay. With a single tear falling down her cheek, "Maybe, I just won't go to the gala, Mom. I just want to stay in bed for the next month", she expresses through the phone as the tears start streaming. The poor thing needs a pick-me-up. And, a Mom Hug.

The empowered, candy apple red Alyce Designs ballgown showcases:
✶Gorgeous asymmetrical draping along sweetheart bodice front
✶Bedazzled rhinestone trimming along wearer L bustline and strap, wearer R underarm, and back bodice
✶Basque waist silhouette with princess seamlines and sweeping chiffon hemline
✶Partially lined bodice with bra cups, back zipper, and hook/eye closure

Throughout her million hour drive home (yes, an exaggeration), Mere tries to calm herself. Deep, slow breaths. Mentally taking note of the many things that she is grateful for. Blasting Spotify's Flashback Friday Bash playlist and singing (badly) alongside Taylor Swift. Without hitting any kind of traffic, Mere manages to make it home in the wee hours of the morning. Opening the door to her childhood home, the unexpecting, young woman discovers a white box with a large, red bow laying on the floor. With it, a card reads, "For the sweet, beautiful, nice girl who has been dealt a few naughty cards this year. Don't let the bad ruin your good. XOXO, Santa". Meredith opens the box to find the most exquisite, red vintage dress that dreams are made of. An early Christmas miracle, indeed. (Or, sometimes, Moms know exactly what to do to pull you out of your funk).

Returns and exchange details

✩Shopping is kind of like Tinder. You have to look over all of the photos, details, measurements, and terrible music tastes, before you make THE COMMITMENT. All sales are final.

✩Sequin Whore vintage items are previously worn and loved with a story to tell. The pieces are hand chosen with attention to condition, quality, hand, construction, and fit. Before the article is given a stamp of approval for saleability, it is carefully looked over for flaws and imperfections. Any inadequacies are reflected in the condition portion of the lisiting description. However, despite the best efforts and most thorough eye, it is possible that a slight blemish may have been overlooked. Refunds will only be explored if a piece has been widely misrepresented. (Whoosh, what a mouthful that was).

✩If a refund is deemed appropriate for vintage purchases, the buyer is responsible for return shipping. Returned merchandise is expected to be postmarked within 2 days of it's arrival date and in the condition it was in when sold. If additional damage has been done to the item upon return, buyer will be responsible for cost of loss in value. In such case, the buyer will be contacted before any proceedings take place. Monetary refunds may take up on 7 business days depending on bank processing.

✩Refunds will not be offered for sizing issues in vintage purchases. Sequin Whore offers garment measurements in listing descriptions and will happily work alongside you if additional information is needed. (Pinky promise, we will get through it together).

✩Color may vary with different monitor and resolution settings. For this reason, returns are not accepted for reasons to do with color.
