My original dress post is here:
Found my dress!!! (pic heavy)
I thought I had found my wedding dress when I put a deposit down on an Oscar De la Renta poofy ball gown. It was nothing I ever pictures myself in but I felt so fun in it.
After a couple of days I went back to the bridal salon to pay in full and bring the gown home. One of my bridesmaids came with me and she insisted I try a dress since she wasn’t with me when I went a few days before. Of course I fell head over heels in love with a Jim Hjlem they had gotten in that day. I couldn’t get it zipped up all the way since I am not a bridal size 4 but I made an appt To work out with a personal trainer so either I will slim up a bit so I can zipper my dress or it will need to be let out a bit. I loved this dress too much to not buy it And I got a great deal on it! I purchased it that night and brought it home. I now have a “me” dress.

I love this one so much more than the Oscar!!!
I love poofy ballgowns, but I wasn’t a fan of the first dress. This is gorgeous.

thank you ladies! Now the hard part of working my ass off (literally) at the gym starts! Hopefully by alterations time it will be able to zipper all the way though I will most likely be lowering the back, not as much as in the picture but lower than where it zippers if it were to properly fit.

I liked the Oscar (I mean, who doesn’t like Oscar) but agree – this is way better!

i do think I got a little caught up in the fact that the dress was an “Oscar” and ignored the fact that it wasn’t really “me” I did feel like Carrie in Sex and the City in the oscar though which was fun.
