XP AW: I Have a Dress!

Yay! I went shopping with friends on Tuesday, and then I went with my sister and Mom yesterday and we found the one. 

The store it was at was having a massive clearance sale, and a lot of their dresses were at least 50% off if you bought off the rack. I saw it hanging there, but it was just over my budget (even with the discount) so I let it go. At the end of my visit to that store, I couldn't stop thinking about it so I tried it on, and of course I loved it. The consultant gave me a further discount bringing it closer to budget range, and the rest is history. There are no good pics of me in it because the lighting was awful (and my sister has the pic on her phone anyway), but this is what it looked like on the model:

We're getting married outside in July, so I didn't want anything heavy or with a big train, and that's exactly what I got!

  • LOVE IT!!  What designer is it?  I tried on something very, very similar by Mikaela for my first dress.  That was almost the one until I tried on my dress (which was completely different!).  Anyway, it's gorgeous and I really can't wait to see pics of it on you!!

  • Ah - that makes sense then!!  I just found the pic of the one I tried on.  SO similar but I think the bottom is diferent.

  • Yay!  That's gorgeous!  I really want to see it on you, of course, but I love it!
  • Ya Meg, I've noticed they have a few dresses that look really similar to that (with the same or very close to the same flower), but with different skirts. I love them all, to be honest. It's the style I was going for.

  • Beads, i love it! I can't wait to see it on you!
  • Beautiful. I'm glad you found one you love. And I admire your self control on the budget! I tried one on out of my price range, but knew I would have to find it used to afford it. I would have been ok if I couldn't have gotten it, but it could have turned out worse!
