Well, knock me over with a feather. I have a dress.
First dress shop, first dress I tried on.
The consultant pulled this one for me, after she quizzed me about what I was looking for and sized up my personality and body type. (Man, she IS good.)
Of course I tried on many dresses after that, but none could compare to that first dress. Mizz J was with me and knew it was THE DRESS when I had it on.
I tried it on again, after all of the other dresses. Mizz J clinched it for me when she said "Mom, I would get married in that dress!"
The dress does wonders for my current (abundance of) figure. I ordered it in my current size, knowing that even if I didn't lose another ounce, I would look and feel as good as can be in that dress.
And the consultant assured me it could be taken down 2 more sizes if need be. What more can anyone ask for? Plus it was within the "budget", coming in at well under a thousand bucks.
Three months from now, the dress will come in, and I will go for my first fitting. Now I have a goal to work towards.
The dress is white.
Some people say that second-time brides should not wear white, but some people say that anything goes anymore and women can wear whatever colour they like, even white for a subsequent wedding.
I chose white because my husband-to-be asked me to.
Here is the dress (Feb 16 POD):
