- Wedding: December 2012
As many of you gals know I have been dealing with some major dress regret. I was going to wait until my new dress came in to see how I liked it (tried on ivory wanted and ordered it in white). Well.. yesterday I get an email letting me know it’s in. So there with my entire “waiting until June” concept
So I asked my cousin (moh) if she would come with me this morning to see it and try it on and stuff. She agreed. So we left alittle after 10am because they opened at 11. Got there and told them I was here to see the dress I ordered because it came in and whatnot. They were busy, like OMG people everywhere.
I searched the racks and saw they had a TON of new dresses in so was combing through and saw some that were just so different and were never there when I went the first 3 times.
So anyways, I went back to the front still no one there to help me so I waited in line. Someone walks in behind me and they greet her and get her with someone and I’m still standing up there like an idiot staring at them with a not so very nice face on at this point.
Finally another 5 minutes later they ask me if I needed help so I told them again and she’s like “Oh, the lady at the desk back there can help you if youre doing a pickup”. Like they couldn’t tell me this 10 minutes ago? Ugh anyways moving on
So I told her I was here to pick up my dress and whatnot. She went grab it and I just hate it. The beading on it is exactly the same as on the ivory.. its gold tone and ivory and just UGH I didnt even want to try it on.
(History on this: I tried on the dress in ivory and before I ordered it I asked them if they had ANY size of that dress in white that I could see if the beading would be sparkly/blingly like I was wanting. They said no, but reassured me that it wouldn’t be the same, that it would be silver and sparkly.)
At this point I’m like okay, whatever I dont want it lets try on something else. I had talked with manager and two other consultants all of them trying to tell me the beading was “silver” but ooh honey no it was NOT. That’s ivory and gold no where near sparkly or silver. It honestly didnt even belong on the white dress, it belonged on the ivory. It was just horrible.
Anyways… so we comb through the racks and I find a few that I thought were nice. I also pulled the first original “fun” bottom one that I love. Mind you, none of which were even in my size. They were 14/16 and I’m an 18/20 so I had to try my best to invision these dresses fitting me the right way and not bunched up because I couldn’t fit it over my hips the right way to make the body look anything like it would in my real size
First couple were okay then we tried on another “fun” bottom one and OMG, I loved it! It had the fitted ruched top with a slight scoop sweetheart, had a blingy little belt then a layered tulle beaded bottom. It was my dress! I just knew. I didn’t have the OMG THIS IS IT moment but I knew it was it. But, since Ive been going back and forth on these dresses I decided to put the original “fun” bottom one on and as much as I do like it it was NOTHING like that other one. The feeling just wasn’t the same at all. So I put the other one back on and just ahhhh loved it!
So I asked her if it came in white (it was ivory on the tag but it was more like the “soft white” in Vera Wang, it wasn’t that goldenish ivory like most of them are). She asked what size I would need and I told her an 18, she said “Oh I don’t think this dress comes in an 18”. My heart dropped.. I had tears forming in my eyes. So I asked her to check and make sure.
I went in the dressing room and tried my best not to cry, I was so upset.. I haven’t felt this way about ANY other dress. She came back and said “Yes, we can order it in white and in an 18”. I was so excited! So we tried on some veils and played around with a couple tiaras (Im not sure if I’m even wearing a veil but I was excited so why not).
After that I went to go change into my regular clothes, I asked her how much this dress was compared to my other one. She looks at the tag and she notices it’s a CLEARANCE DRESS and that she’ll have to double check to make sure if they’re even making or saling this dress anymore. I got so nervous, I was like OMG this isn’t happening.. why didnt she say this before ?
I finished getting dressed and waited for her to come back. About 5 minutes later she comes back to tell me that she was sorry and that this dress would not be able to be ordered in the white or even in my size. She said she checked other stores and no one has it in an 18. She asked if I wanted to get the one I tried on.. OF COURSE NOT! It’s a size 14 and IVORY!!
Needless to say at this point I’m pissed, hurt, and very upset. She askes me if I want to try looking at other dresses but I didn’t. I was on the edge of crying my eyes out. So I told them I just wanted to get a store credit on my dress and come back. She then tells me that I couldn’t get a credit only an exchange on another dress. I was in no shape to try on more dresses so I got with the store manager.
They’re holding my dress (the ugly one that I refused to even try on and take home) until I go back on Tuesday to START ALL OVER AGAIN…
I am beyond myself right now, I am so mad that they allowed me to try on a dress that for one wasnt even in my size and second that they can’t even order it would be THAT sample dress only…
Ugh.. trying on all these dresses and not likely anything then find one you LOVE and just UGH I’m so pissed
I told my cousin that when we come back on Tuesday that I’m making them pull every damn size 16+ dress that they have in stock. I don’t care if I’m there from open to close. And if they can’t order it or get it in my size and color then I dont want to try it on.
My cousin said they should have dresses on clearance and that aren’t available to be ordered like that on a separate rack because it’s one of the worst things to have to go through is to fall in love with a dress and not be able to have it.
Now I’m afraid nothing will measure up to this one from today ::sigh::
