Sure,  you’ve already had your big day and worn your wedding dress–but how would you feel if someone else took it?

E! News is reporting that the white anchor-pattern cotton dress Amy Winehouse wore to marry Blake Fielder-Civil in Miami in 2006 has been nabbed from the North London home where Winehouse died. The thievery happened at a time when Winehouse’s possessions were being catalogued for auction. Proceeds from the frock, which has been valued at $210,000, would have benefitted the Amy Winehouse Foundation, a charity that raises money to help treat drug addicts.

It’s impossible to say for sure how the soulful singer would feel about the dress’ disappearance if she were still alive. Her short marriage to Fielder-Civil was mired in problems. But given the sentimental attachment so many women feel toward their wedding gowns (regardless of the outcome of the marriage), we imagine that Winehouse would be heartbroken.

How would you feel if your wedding dress were to be stolen?
