I found my dress!

And I paid for it! So its official! I will post a picture here, but not one of me in it, because I don't want B to see.

I actually think it looks little better in person on me, because I'm really hourglass and it flatters. Darn models and their perfectly skinny bodies!






For any future reference, I learned three valuable lessons through this experience:

1. Don't be afraid to try on things you wouldn't expect to like.
2. Set a "final deadline". Otherwise every time you go, you'll find something you love and get too overwhelmed.
3. If you find something you like, do whatever it takes to try it on. I had to drive two hours today to buy this dress. I went for something completely different, and it was worth it! I found the perfect dress on me!

Check out this site. I'm leaning toward some of these bridesmaid gowns. I highly recommend this line, Enzoani. Great prices and great quality.

I'm off to help B build some closets! Good night!

I am sure it looks absolutely stunning on you.
I remember when I found the dress. I still tried on others but I always went back to THE one.
Congratulations.

The dress looks SOOO amazing! And I must say that models have nothing on a girl with an hourglass figure, so I'd imagine that it looks 100 times more gorgeous on you!! Looking forward to seeing pics in the future - congrats!
