*** MY DRESS CAME IN TODAY!!!! ***
(yes, that's me, squealing).
I get home from work, kickin back flippin through a new Frederick's catalogue (cute new stuff, by the way).... I think I hear my phone ring from within my purse in the bedroom. By the time I get there, it's gone to voicemail... Hmmm... a 726 number.... Hmmm.... voicemail. Some girl from Alfred Angelo "I'm calling you about your dress you have here......." DRESS I HAVE THERE?????? Since when????????????
I call back, and get the girl who'd 'helped' (I use the term loosely) me when I bought it... she says it came in today. SWEET!! I'm on my way!!!!!!!!!!
Now there's really only two girlfriends who'd be willing to go with me (most of my friends are guys) to pick it up... one has the flu (and is leaving for NC in the a.m.) and the other was at football practice with her son. :( *pout* So I can either wait for one of them to go with me another night, or I can go alone.....
Screw it... I go alone.
I grabbed my camera and my new *sexy* shoes, and headed out the door.
I get there and she pulls it and it's GORGEOUS..... so sparkly (much more beading and glimmer to it than I recall from trying it on).... So I put my shoes on, she straps me into the bra, I slip into the dress and.....
It's too friggin SHORT!!!!!
As I may have posted before, when I tried it on, it was EASILY 4 inches too long... I was stepping on it in the FRONT. So I had to special order the "short" version (3" shorter and $50 more -- I'm 5'8" and I had to order a SHORT dress??????)... even with ordering the short version, it was supposedly going to be a couple inches too long, so I knew I'd have to wear at least a 2.5" heel.....
So I kick the shoes off and in my FLAT feet, it's perfect (any shorter and it'd be TOO short, but flatfooted, it's fine).
So *shrug* I'm not gonna worry about it.... I love it, it fits almost PERFECTLY (it'll need a bit of nipping in just under the bust, because in addition to 5'8" being SHORT in the world of Alfred Angelo, apparently a 38D is small chested :rofl: )... I absolutely love it however... I'm fine with finding some flats or something to wear with it... I just love it.
No pics (I just didn't bother even asking her to take pics)... but I'm going to make an appt with a seamstress for alterations (I don't want to go to their alterations chick) in the next week, so I'll get pics then.
