- Wedding: December 1969
While I was on vacation I stopped by a little gown boutique to try on the Maggie Sottero Sabelle once more, but it turns out they didnt’ have it. So of course I decided to try on some other dresses. At first the lady helping me kept putting me in huge ball gowns and I finally found one that I kind of liked but the bottom was too plain for me so we started discussing what we could do to add some bling. Their seamstress was not in that day so I had to come backthe next to to see what she could do with the dresss.
Well, the next day I picked out a few more dresses to try after discussing what could be done for the dress, but I still wasn’t excited about it. There was one dress that had caught my eye the day before and it still had something about it, so I pulled it off the rack this time. I tried on a few other ball gowns the attendant recommended but I could wait to try the one on I had picked. Once I did, I knew that this was it! The attendant had me try on another dress but I honestly didn’t want to take this perfect one off and then couldnt wait to put it back on after trying the other on. I found out then that I did not like ballgowns, but more of a fit and flare that complemeted my curves. Come to find out, the dress was a Maggie Sottero; I just love her style. I was told that it was being discontinued and so I would get their last one off the rack, as is. Their sample dresses were kept in such great condition that this was not a problem. Plus I have always had this feeling that when there is only one thing of something left in stock at a store, and I happen to be the one to pick it up, then it must be fate that I have it. I am so excited to go back and pick it up, and I think everyone will love the dress at my wedding, including my husband to be.
There is a fairly large bow that hangs down that I think I am going to have removed (you can see it gathered upunder my bust) and I think I am going to give it a slight sweetheart.
The overlay has small, sheer dots on it which I think make it even more unique and special.
