- Wedding: September 2012
My daughter is going to be in a school pageant in March and needs a gown. So, Saturday my daughter, my mom & I headed over to a dress shop that is going out of business to look at prom dresses. I had no intention of trying on bridal gowns – I am losing weight and wanted to wait a couple more months before I tried anything. But, everything in the store was 50% off or more, so mom convinced me to” just try on a few.”
Now, since becoming engaged a few weeks ago (and, I admit, even before I got engaged) I have looked at dresses online & in magazines and every one I pinned or torn out of a mag was lacey, flow-y, ruffley, romantic and ethereal. Imagine my surprise when the dress I knew was “MY” dress was none of those things! LOL! I knew when I didn’t want to take it off that it was the one. And, added bonus, she was over 60% and I got her for only $300! Yes, you read that right! Brand new, only $300!! Which my mom promptly said “ I want to pay for it” Total win!
It is Davinci style #50024 which I now know is a copy of the Maggie Adorae. But I don’t care if she is a copy. I love her and I feel beautiful in her! So glad Mom convinced me to try on dresses! 🙂
