I got engaged last month and have, naturally, been looking at dresses trying to find one I like. Problem is I currently live in sub-Saharan Africa so there are NO bridal shops nearby and I was hesistant to order anything without trying it on. That didn’t stop me from emailing my mom every single dress I ran across that I liked, and last week I sent her a picture of the J Crew Principessa saying that it was my dream dress, but I thought it had been discontinued so we’d have to find a used one.
Well, today I get a chat message that says “Interested in J Crew Principessa? On sale, your size, last one.” Of course I said “YES!”
She went ahead and ordered it, so when I arrive home one year from now, I’ll have a dress waiting for me!
So very anti-climatic, but at least I can stop stressing about only having 3 months between landing back in the US and getting married–at least I have something!
