I am notorious for finding things way way cheap — I have a killer wardrobe, if I do say so myself, and yet I have pieced it all together from consignment stores and clearance racks.
So all you other deal-loving, penny-pinching bees might be excited for me when I tell you that I found my DREAM DRESS on EBAY for way cheaper than it is in stores!
I knew I wanted an Allure lace dress, not strapless. I was leaning towards the style 8634 or 8770; I would have been happy with either one. I had never tried either one on.
One night I decided to get on Ebay, on the off chance that my dream dress was there, for cheap, in my size. Well wouldn’t ya know! It was! 🙂
I emialed the seller and confirmed she was my exact size, height, and weight. Heck we even had the same first name.
I felt confident placing the winning bid for 300 bucks for my dream dress, and buying it no-refund, sight unseen. I think it retails for over 1000 bucks in stores, so I basically got it for 70 or 80% off? And it was brand new with tags. I think the other girl had changed her mind or something.
Heres’s a few pictures that my little sis got with her camera phone, during my bridal portrait session. The professional shots turned out INCREDIBLE but he hasn’t given me those yet. But you can probably tell from the crappy pics how awesome the dress is. 🙂 I struck gold!
Just thought I’d let people know, in case anyone else can get lucky the same way.
