I totally just bought a dress from davids… online… at 2:30 in the morning! lol!!!!
Not THE dress, but a “get away” dress. It’s on sale for only $69 so I figure worst case scenario I can return it 🙂 I’ve actually been eying this one for a bit and it’s on sale… and in my size! We’re planning an early fall wedding and it’s pretty much completely me, so… I bit the bullet and hit submit order! And I’ve been trying to be good until I got the ring! But this isn’t the dress so I think i’m OK 🙂
I’m pretty enamored with bird cages and or hats (british style party hats and head pieces)… but know that the odds of one working with my “real” dress are slim. I totally have a vision of this dress, a little bird cage or netting… or feathers, MAYBE (big maybe) little white gloves, and my hopefully totally cute wedding shoes so everyone can actually see them….

That is sooo beautiful. Really classy and elegant. It really reminds me of Sex and The City!! I like your “vision” it sounds so cute, do you aleady have a wedding theme that will tie into it? Im guessing… yes? lol
Good on you for getting it, 2.30 am impulse buys are all part of being a woman. I mean it was on sale and in your size, of course you had to have it. Thats a bargain also, so you cant feel bad.
What type of shoes do you have in mind?

I love the dress! I probably wouldn’t tell him what the dress was for when it comes in because of how he may react (I know my bf might trip), but I can see why you couldn’t pass it up. That was a steal!!!
I love your idea of the birdcages and hats! I think it would be cute to have a tea theme.

That’s one heck of a cute get-away dress!

That’s a super cute dress! Even if you don’t end up wearing as your get away dress, you could always wear it to a shower/bridal luncheon/etc. It would work for just about any of the “extra” wedding event dresses.

Love it as a getaway dress. If you are not engaged but have a date then I think it is fine to buy a dress. Just don’t tell your bf what it is for until later!

That is an awesome dress! And a birdcage or even a little cloche hat would be so great with it. Well done!

I love that! Very Jackie O. I can totally see it with a little hat or birdcage veil, some rockin shoes, and short white gloved. Love it!

when you find a good deal like that you can’t pass it up! it’s very cute! plus, it’s not like it’s exactly a big poofy bridal gown, so your bf will have no clue that you bought it for the wedding. :0)
