I made a trip after work Friday to check out a massive bridal store near the Galleria area in Houston. Traffic was so bad that I decided to exit and just go home. Just as I began my trek home, I remembered that there was a Priscilla of Boston nearby.
I knew about the closing but did not realize that there was a Grand Finale of 50 - 75% off. After looking through a number of samples and some second thoughts, I found the most beautiful gown! I later found out that it was part of the P of B Platinum line, new this season, and was in route to the store when the closing was announced.
As soon as I tried it on I knew it was the one. but I wanted my family and matron of honor to see it before I committed. The staff let me put on hold and the next day with the emphatic approval, as well as me needing to catch my breath and hold back tears, I had my dress.
The cost came out to be a little more than 75% the original ($1,183 w/ tax). If you live in the Houston area or within reasonable traveling distance I highly recommend a visit to the Priscilla of Boston shop in Uptown Park. Ask for Angela. She's awesome!
I will post pics soon. Yippee!
