I went dress shopping yesterday, with absolutely no intentions of buying…and then I fell in love with a clearance gown at David’s Bridal, but couldn’t afford it and couldn’t ask my mom because she hasn’t gotten the experience of going dress shopping with me, and because she’s paying, I want her to have that…so I asked if there was anything similar in the $99 section, because that I could do myself and not feel guilty if I found another dress with my mom, and there was one dress that fit my vision, and only 3 of them left, with one being my size.
I tried it on, and even when we were just putting it on I got the feels…and then I saw it on. I loved it even more than the one I couldn’t afford, my roommate and consultant agreed, it made me feel beautiful, classy and bridal, and it fit me like a glove — the only alterations it’ll need are hemming and a bustle! The consultant said she has never seen someone who fits into size 10 dresses like I do [perfectly] without even needing the straps adjusted, and she’s been at DB for over 20 years!
The dress is super plain, simple and classy, and I’ll dress it up some with a blingy belt and maybe have some flowers put along the hem, and of course, wear a hoop skirt…but wow. Who would’ve thought I’d buy a dress! My roommate and I went just to play dress up (although she found her dress too).
I don’t have any pics of me in it, I’ll have to ask my roommate if she does — she should…but here’s a stock photo.
