Here's my correspondence with the dress monster. Don't mail anything mean to her though because I'm still hoping I can work something out with her. I love you for considering it though.

Hi, Remember me, I begged you to let me buy my Grandmother's dress from you when you bought it on eBay. If you remember the seller and I had worked out an arrangement and before she could take it off the auction you bid on it and then I think the site went down preventing me from being able to bid against you. A kind friend just sent me a link to the dress on your site. I thought you were going to wear it to your wedding. You had promised to let me know if you ever decided to sell it.

The price you're asking is way out of my league. Is there any chance you would consider selling it for less, say, triple what you paid for it? Wouldn't that be enough profit? I'm trying so hard to put together a show of her clothes, I won't make any money at all on this, I'll never be able to wear it, I'm just going to show it and then donate it. It's really just to honor her memory and for my Mom who is in her eighties. Can't we work something out? Please let me know.

Hi, yes of course I remember you. I was planning on wearing the dress for my upcoming weddingits a little too small though, thats why I put it on the siteif I can ever loose this last 10 pounds I may still wear it. Im terribly sorry Jacqui but I cant sell it for what your asking, even though I understand that your offer is generous on your part. I do empathize with your situation but in my heart of hearts I dont want to part with the dress at allit was simply too lovely to not put on the siteI humbly apologize for any heartache my having the dress and refusing to sell it to you may causeif I come across another one youll be the first to know. Its just such a masterpiecewell I wont extol its virtuesIm sure you already know them and I dont want to make the situation even more painful for you.

My sincerest apologies.
