I bought my dress today! I found this dress (JIm Hjelm 8960) the very first time I tried on dresses, and cried. LOVED IT. But then I convinced myelf there were better dresses out thery, or I should wait…. I tried on like a million more dresses, and at least ten more todau…put the Jim Hjelm one back on, and KNEW. It is The One and I needed to stop guessing. So I plopped down 50% for payment, almost had a heart attack, and drank some champagne with Miss PenguinPumpkin. WOO HOO! I am so excited (as well as relieved).

Jim Hjelm is a beautiful designer, I love so many of his dresses. I put him down as an inspiration when I went dress shopping, and they said there is a cheaper Jim Hjelm line called James Clifford, I tried on some of his dresses – and they were pretty, but it wasn’t quite the same.
This was my favorite James Clifford dress though:

Thanks everyone! I’m kind of pissed at myself for not getting a very good deal (I’m a super bargain hunting freak, normally) but it’s just so nice to have that decision made and feel so happy about it!
@Miss PumpkinPenguin, thanks so much for going with me today (and going to the cat pee-smelling discount fabric shop)! I am so happy that we get to be wedding buddies!
@miss-spunkin, wow! I’ve never heard of James Clifford but that is a great dress! I think I will refrain from google searching him, in case it causes me to have regrets!

@ktbrady, yes when I went in for an appointment, I said my budget was $1500, and it said to list your favorite designers, Jim Hjelm was one and the consultant immediately told me that Hjelm was outside my budget, so that’s when she told me about James Clifford. It was nice, but yes I do suggest you stick with your dress and don’t keep looking around haha, I love your dress anyhow it’s gorgeous!
