Got a dress!!

So I found my dress this weekend. There was a bridal shop near me that was having a 50% off sale, so I or rather my mother bought a dress that I never would have otherwise because 1) The original price was over $1000 and 2) I would have never selected it off the rack myself.

I was trying on a few dresses and asked the consultant for some ideas. I told her that I didn't want lace. I didn't want anything on the bottom. Well she came back with a few dresses. One of them had lace all around the bottom. In my head I was like did you not listen to anything I just told you. I decided what the heck its here why not. It also helped that she said it wasn't a sample so it had barely been touched. That was nice to know when buying the exact dress. Well I put it on and was like, this is so different from anything I have tried on. I love it. It's awesome.

I don't really like how the model looks in the pic of the front... it makes the bottom look all weird. Oh and the fabric is quite shimmery. It is Allure 8605.

    I have pictures of me in the dress. I am just not fond of the pics. The consultant asked what time of day I was getting married and when I told her the evening she dimmed the lights in the room. Well in result the pictures have a lot of shadows in them. I suppose I can possibly post them anyway. Since I bought the exact dress maybe I will try to get some better pics. Thanks for the compliments.

    Me too! 3 of my favorite dresses ended up being Allure. That wasn't even intentional.
