Sooo, couple of weeks ago, I found the perfect dress but it was slightly over my budget. I went to different stores hoping to find something similar and under $1K. No luck. I went back today with my mom and tried on the dress and she said it was perfect. Rep noticed how much I loved the dress and called her mgr over. They said they can sell me the sample dress for X amount of dollars. I said eh, it’s still over my budget. Let me try on my 2nd runner up. I tried it on and it was $855 and my mom said it looked good. Rep comes back saying Mgr lowered it to X amount of dollars. I said eh still not under $1K, let me try on the Maggie Royale. She comes back saying mgr lowered it again to this amount. I said “if you can lower it to this amount, I will take it”. She comes back and said “YES!”. I asked why the were selling me the sample dress as it wasn’t even discontinued. She said that she saw how much I loved the dress and didn’t want me to settle with my 2nd runner up. I was skeptical at first because they kept lowering the price. The dress has a small tear on the back (top) and some beads missing but nothing a seamstress can’t fix during alterations. Next i was beginning to wonder if they’re gonna screw me over during alterations. I ended up getting the dress 40% off MSRP. MY Fiance has me worried that something major is wrong with the dress. : I think it’s gonna need taken in a lot. Will that cost a lot more?
