AW: GOT MY DRESS!!

So I wasn't really expecting to find my dress today because it was my first time shopping and the second store we went to was having a sample sale that has been going on since Aug 2nd so I went in not expecting much except maybe narrowing down what I liked and didn't like.


The 1st place I tried on 4 dresses (their wasn't much there really) and then we headed to the 2nd store who was having the sample sale.


My dress ended up being one I grabbed to try on "just for fun" because to me it was a little outside the box with the flower details but I really, really, really liked it!  Only problem was it was about $400 over my budget and a size 8 (where I needed a 10-12 to fit properly) 


So I continued to try on about 4-5 other dresses and I just couldn't get the first one out of my head so we tried it on again and I had a gal help me get it zipped up completely so we could see a little better what it would look like.  


I'm telling you, I COULD not breathe! haha  but I instantly knew that this was the dress I wanted and she told me it was 15% off so it ended up being only $190 over my budget and DF said I could go ahead and get it.


We bought it and I got to bring it home with me since it was part of their sample sale!  


It's from Justin Alexander, 8532, and it's the cream & silver


Here's a pic of me in the dress:


(Please remember it's a size too small right in the pic so I look a bit like a sausage :) I definitely have the motivation to lose about 10lbs and tighten up like I had already wanted to do now!)  


So I wasn t photo 3393167-1 


Here it is on the Justin Alexander website....I can't wait to try it on in a few months!

Thanks so much ladies!  <3  


I'm super excited.....too bad I have to wait 14 months to wear it! :(   


But the plus side is that I have plenty of time to lose a few inches in my hips/thighs and waist.

Thanks again ladies!  It really was surreal and as the night went on the more excited I got thinking about it  :)


@ Yuzhibozuozhu, that dress is gorgeous too!  I love, love, love the top and the delicate, flow-y fabric on the bottom.  Have you tried it on yet?  I'd love to see a pic of you wearing it!  Congrats!
