And it's white!
I bought a sample dress from Fabulous Bridal. It's an Essense of Australia.I guess I would call it something like a modified A line. Of course, I am going to have a little bit of alterations to do- I am having the straps removed to make it a strapless and adding a bustle, and a vintage broach.
But, two things I want to share:
LOVE LOVE LOVE the girls at Fabulous! April and Angelia are pretty awesome. My budget was $500- which is a drop in the bucket compared to a large portion of their line, but they showed me a whole room of samples that will be part of the clearance sale the day after Thanksgiving and I tried on atleast 15 dresses (I wear a 12). I picked a dress on Thursday when I was there with my bridesmaids, but was very nervous about picking a dress on the first try. I went back today with my mom, and when we looked at it, we just kind of came to the conclusion, I wasn't in love. So, the girls brought down some of the dresses from the clearance section, and some off the rack in the style I was looking for, and the next dress I tried on was "the dress"!
But, here's the kicker- I had tried it on before and had decided against it! I was wearing a different spanx (it was too big) and a corset bra, and the dress was too ill fitting. This time, I had on the proper size spanx and no corset and it fit perfectly! So, undergarments really make a huge difference!
I am so excited!
