i think we finally have it, folks.
i've had quite a time trying to finalize my bridesmaid dress for scott and kelly's wedding that is creeping up on us in an ever-quickening manner.
the first one did not turn out to be the right color.
the second one is OK, but just not blowing me away.
there sorta was a third one i thought i was going to get from saks, but before i had a chance to buy it, i found the one you see pictured here. the one from saks was very fitted, which i'm afraid wouldn't have blended well with the styles of the other girls' dresses. also, it was wool and silk -- talk about h-o-t in september at an outdoor wedding in dallas.
so, my mom and i were at the mall today when she said, "let's go look at javier simorra. they had some things in the right color once when scott and i looked."
javier simorra is one of those stores i normally walk right past because it seems to be way too high-end fashion to be cute on me. also, and more importantly, i never imagined i could afford anything.
i protested, but we went anyway. what could it hurt?
nothing! they have very cool stuff. and i found this. it fits beautifully, and that in one size smaller than i normally am. needless to say, i'm sold.
it's unique. it's closer to the flowy style of the other girls' dresses. it's the right color.
it's 40 percent off...
i cannot ask for anything more.
i am officially done shopping for this dress.
i am 100 percent pleased.
unless, of course, kelly is not OK with it.
and then I might have to go naked.
