Question: So I just need opinions. Almost 2...

So i tried talking to her to figure out what was going on and the conversation just didn't go well and it strained our friendship even more. I tried explaining to her that she was supposed to be my maid of honor and my best friend and i needed her. I completely understand that people have lives but i was doing all the planning by myself. I told her if she didn't want to do it or felt like it was to much pressure to let me know and i would get someone else to do it and she told me that she wanted to. I thought things were fine after that but the same problem persisted and even got worse. It got to the point that she wasn't showing up to the meetings or fittings, i was still doing all the planning by myself and i just got tired of it so i told her she could still be in the wedding but she was no longer the maid of honor. So I picked someone else to do it. Well at that point she just stopped talking to me all together, whenever I had wedding related things to tell her I would have to have my husband talk to her b/c she wouldn't talk to me about wedding stuff or anything. She stopped talking to all of our friends all together, except my husband.
After having this go on for many months I just told her that I couldn't deal with it anymore, we had a big fight, we haven't talked in like 3 or 4 months, she didn't show up to the wedding, she didn't pay for the rest of her bridesmaids dress. Not only am I upset but I'm hurt. So since she didn't pay for the rest of her dress I had to. We were already in a financial strain with paying for the wedding and reception and then on top of that I had to pay an extra $125 for her dress. So I now have the dress with nothing do to with it.
It upsets me b/c she told me she was having money trouble that's why she hadn't paid for the rest of her dress, but she had enough to buy a brand new iphone! WTF?!
My question is I want my money back but I don't know how to get it. What should I do or what could i do? Friends suggested selling it on craigslist or ebay or something, or just making her pay for it. But obviously if she was going to pay for it, she would have? Right?? At this point I don't want to deal with it or her anymore I just want it to be done and over, so I just don't know what to do.
