- Wedding: July 2012
Quick back story, I purchased a dress on a whim (Maggie Sottero Dominique) and it is too small. Plus, it just doesn’t sit on me the way I want and my seamstress says that if she were to alter it to fit me, it would throw off the look of the dress. So it is now forsale. Then I purchased Allure C155 when my Fiance and I were going to have a big church wedding. Now, Vegas is where we are going so I sold that one.
Fast forward to last week when I had a minor break down that I didn’t have a dress and and pretty much decided I was going to be wearing a white sun dress! My Fiance caught me looking on ebay and checking out wedding dresses. I found one, Maggie Sottero Kenda, in my size and the color I wanted. It’s Alabaster. I have tried this dress on at least 5 times, but my dress budget (after two VERY PRICEY dresses) was under $500. However, this dress was only at 99, but still had over a day left. I blew it off knowing the dress would end up going for way over what I wanted to spend. When I came home from work Thursday night, there was a shoe box on the counter with big red bow on it. I asked him what it was and he just smiled and said to open it. Inside was a recepit for Kendra that he purchased on Ebay for me! I had no idea he even saw me looking at the dress! And bonus, he got the dress for $175 including shipping and handling! He took my totally by surprise because this is way out of character for him. It was the sweetest thing, hands down, he has ever done for me!
Now I am at a loss on how to accesorize her. I want a glam/pin up/old hollywood look. I am considering adding a beaded sash. Any thoughts or ideas?
