I did it, I bought my dress! It’s totally not traditional but makes me amazingly happy, although please ignore my rashy cleavage and armpit fat – stupid skin. The picture doesn’t do the dress justice!
One of the best parts? It was $1200 for a Very Wang Luxe dress! I could never afford a gown this beautiful normally! I know preowned/consignment stores can turn some people off, but OMG – this store was just amazeballs.
Feel free to share your non traditional or just amazing find dresses!

You look fantastic; well found! That’s how I got my Tux, and my morning coat and top hat, at AMAZING prices. It’s awesome isn’t it?

That is a GORGEOUS dress! Congrats on a top find!!! 🙂
I found my dress at such a steal that I think one of my bridesmaids fell off a chair when I told her the price. She was like “wait, WHAT??” I loved my dress even more because of the great price I got on it. 😉

Yay! I got my dress at a consignment store too! $375 for an unworn casablanca 1899. I also found a $3k Amy Kushel at Thrift Town for $5, which I sold for a few hundred.

@FauxPas2012: It’s Vera Wang Luxe, makes me feel awful swanky!
Thanks everyone! While nothing could stop my love for my dress, I was a little worried it would be too “out there” for anyone else – you all quieted my nerves!
