I’m so excited – I’m ordering my dream dress this Saturday!! I’ve been dreaming about this dress for almost 2 years! I found the only sample within about 50 miles – and it was in my size and color! So I went in September and fell head over heels in love with it, tried on dozens of other gowns since then, and keep coming back to her. It’s a Maggie Sottero – the Jocelyn – and I had heard around the interwebs that Jocelyn is older and may be discontinued this year.
So I called the store that had my sample yesterday and found that the dress had been moved to the SALE rack because it was soon to be discontinued! The store owner call the Maggie Sottero people and found out that Jocelyn will most likely be discontinued this coming June (!!), but I could definitely still order it. THEN she gave me the best news of all: they’re having a sale this weekend, so I could take $300 off the price if I order it, OR if I thought the sample was in good enough shape, I could buy it off the rack for $500!! And the store includes free alterations in the price of every gown, so I’d also be getting about $300 in alterations for free by buying my gown there!
I absolutely cannot wait to try on my dream gown again, and can’t wait to come back to the hive with photos – all I have are crappy cell phone pics that I had to sneak in the fitting room the last time!! In your experience, once you order it, do they let you take pics?? I hope so!!
