This is my dress I had originally gone in wanting a dress similar to Jessa Seewald (Duggar) but when I tried on those styles I found they made me arms look GIGANTIC so I was a little discouraged. I decided to try this one on for fun (I can't wear anything with small/no straps) and it ended up looking AMAZING so I got a sheer bolero 3/4 length bolero to put on top of it and instead of the flowery belt I got one with lots of rhinestones!
I almost had a heartattack when we went to pay though because I bought it during their black Friday sale and I asked the girl FIVE TIMES before trying it on if this dress was part of the sale (making it around $450 instead of $824) and she assured me every time that it was (my budget was only $700 including tax, alterations, and "extras") but when my mom went to pay they told her she had to pay full price! I was so upset I almost started crying right there, the manager wasn't budging so I told her that I would find the dress second hand online or a different one altogether from a different store and she finally said that she would give it to us for the "sale" price. Another problem I had was they tried selling my a size 16 (which would have cost extra because it's a "plus" size) when I'm only a size 10 claiming my hips wouldn't fit in the dress (even though it's an A-line and the hips are free). I ordered the size 10 anyways and when I tried it on the attendant said that it was a PERFECT fit and didn't need any alterations besides a bit of hemming, you really have to watch yourselves at the shops sometimes.
Found my gown on January 1st! Second gown I tried on. It's the ruffled Jasmine dress from the Disney Collection at Alfred Angelo. $1,399. Budget was $1,600 so yay! Super in love with it!
