Did you guys feel a little let down after your first dress shopping experience?
I went looking today to get ideas, and a combination of visiting what seemed like a small DB, being fat, and having a budget of $300 or less (preferably less) left me with only a couple options available in my size. I had no idea what to expect, and although I did find one I liked well enough to take a picture instead of ripping it off immediately, I keep looking at the picture and finding flaws. I know that's me being silly, but I just ... well. I expected to find more than four options.
My stylist was nice, and she did convince me to take the one dress I liked back with me (it was HIDEOUS on the hanger), but I kind of felt like the her knowing my budget was so low, plus the fact that I made it clear I wasn't actually buying anything until my "dress committee" could come with me, made it easier for her to sort of shunt me sideways since she was unnecessarily busy (lots of walk-ins that were there before me, and they were short staffed too).
I dunno. I feel weird about it. Maybe when my mom and sisters can come with me it'll be different.
