I went this morning with my mom to the 2 salons I went yesterday to re-try my top picks.
She liked the mermaid (#4) at the 1rst salon and then, at the 2nd she like the Nicole Miller Dakota. Then, my consultant pulled out a sample dress and asked me to try it on, she thought it would surprise me. I wasn’t too sure but I tried it. The sample was my size, no need for alterations except for the hem. Well, we fell in love with it! It is the prettiest dress I’ve ever seen! It is an appliqué of lace hand painted on organza. It is so unique and unexpected! It is a Carolina Herrera (!) and it was 8000$… discounted at 3000 and I dealed it at 1500$ !!! The owner of the place told me she saw me in it and wanted me to have it. She let it go a this price so it could be within my budget. She wanted the dress to be loved 🙂 She personally knows Carolina Herrera and she took a picture of me in it to send it to her!
I never though I would end up in a fit and flare, strapless, diamond white dress with a lace pattern. It is perfect and I am so happy! My mom was crying, I was tearing up and the owner too haha! I have it home with me now, and it is unreal! Here are some pictures of this beauty:
I am getting married! iiiiik!
