I’d even consider buying it used if it’s in good shape! But I’m wondering if the obsession is coming from not being able to find/have it in my size, or because I truly LOVE it.
“My” dress, which I haven’t bought yet, is a David’s Bridal gown. Pretty, fits well, has a nice weight and feel to the chiffon, super comfortable, I like it a lot but I have to admit my mom’s statement that it’s plain has given me a wandering eye. (I don’t think it’s plain at all, but I’m just… waffling, I guess.)
So this dress by IGIGI, the Celine, I initially passed over… but it’s growing on me. A lot. It doesn’t look like a lot of the dresses I’ve seen, so it has kind of a unique, fresh feel to me. It looks comfy and appropriate for the beach, I love the lace, I like that the belt is removable, and I like that that it has a one-shouldered look without being too Grecian goddess. Also, I probably wouldn’t have to alter it, which is a biiiig bonus for my broke ass.
Unfortunately, it’s sold out in all but three sizes on the website and they’re all too small! I need a 22/24. Every Google search for that dress led back to IGIGI with the same three sizes. I added myself to a waiting e-mail list in case they do restock the dress in larger sizes, but I’m feeling impatient. Then again, I don’t know if I really want it more than the other dress, and to complicate things further FI has pointed to all-lace dresses he likes, but then claimed a bolero I was looking at was somehow “too much lace” so I don’t know if he’d like this or if he’d think I look like a big round doily and just ARGH! /run-on sentence
Yeah, don’t mind me, just being indecisive as usual over here. It’s been much easier helping everyone else find their outfits than selecting my own.
