Hi Bees, I have posted about various dresses before, but today I tried one on and bought it without even thinking on it, which is so unlike me! I got a great deal on the sample (hence not taking YEARS to make my decision), and it has a lot of elements that I’d been wanting; a fabric with some character (mikado), a wide V-neckline, ruching, and a classic feel. The theme is kind of 1930’s, Art Deco, old Hollywood glamour.
But I feel SO sick to my stomach now that I made the decision! I am an anxious personalitiy to begin with, and I made the decision with nobody with me; I have no close friends or family members in town and went to this shop on a whim. Also, I am a bridal consultant, and I bought my dress at a different shop! I love my shop, but our “style” doesn’t match my personal style. I was planning on customizing a dress through a designer we carry, but it was getting so expensive and I was getting very nervous about not being able to see it on myself before I’d already committed to it. This is a dress I’d seen online and liked, and when I found the sample set aside in my size and they told me it was discontinued and was about to be re-tagged at 50% off, I had to try it on. I will likely build up the neckline so there is not as much cleavage.
What do you guys think, did I make a good decision? I think if I’d had close friends or family with me to be excited with me, I’d be feeling a lot more confident right now!
