a select few people have seen the Dress and I decided to share it with the Hive because I am just dying for people to see it.
The background story:
I was visiting my parents for the week of Thanksgiving and stumbled upon a bridal salon having a sample sale on Black Friday. I decided to call to see if they had an appointment available, not expecting them to with a sample sale on the biggest shopping day of the year. Miraculously they did! My sister lives in Europe and was coming out in January for our birthday and we were planning on going dress shopping then so I was pretty apprehensive about going since I didn’t want her to miss out. My mom and I decided to go and look because even though there was no guarantee I would find a dress, we didn’t want to miss the opportunity.
We had such an awesome time and I ended up with this almost $5000 gorgeous gown for $2100. It is so not what I would have pictured myself in but when I put it on, it fit like a glove. It is a sample and I swear on my life I do not have to get a thing altered… like it was made for me! There was even icing on the cake… I explained the situation with my sister to the stylist because that was the only bummer about the day. She asked if my sister was at home and near a computer. I figured she probably wasn’t because it was Friday night in Amsterdam by that time but I called anyway. She was home and she was able to login to the store’s webcam to see me in my dress and celebrate with us. It was such an awesome experience and such an awesome date. I can’t wait to wear my dress!!!
