- Wedding: May 2010
I am not a wedding dress person. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not wearing black or anything like that… but I’ve never been overly excited about trying on dresses or finding "the one". I am a horrible decision maker and I also don’t want to spend alot on my dress.
I’ve gone to bridal shops, David’s Bridal, searched online and still… nothing. Then yesterday, I was walking in Davis Square in Somerville, Massachusetts and stumbled upon a vintage shop. I don’t wear vintage clothes but I also don’t have extravagent tastes. They had three wedding dresses hanging up and one of them was my size. I tried it on and it fit PERFECTLY (and its only $98).
The dress is so beautiful and different and adorable. Because its from the 1950’s or 60’s, it has these sheer sleeves that I’d take off and alter it into a tank dress… I’d probably put about $200 worth of alterations + cleaning into it although its in great condition.
Is it worth the effort to have to alter it and fix it up? It’s such a flowy sweet dress and I love the fact that someone wore it before (and wondering who they are and all about them!).
Anyone else wear a used dress or borrow one? Sorry I can’t attach a pic, I only took one with my phone and it won’t upload 🙁
