Shopping like a madwoman

Quick fact: I have to drive to the next county to encounter a wedding dress shop.

So I did, and I went to both of them. The first place was an absolute disaster, none of the samples fit my style. The second store I tried on about 10 and hate almost all but three of them.

Number one was a Sophia Tolli halter made of chiffon. I cannot find photos of this dress ANYWHERE. It must be discontinued.

Number two was this Mori Lee confection. LOVED the tulle-y skirt.

Last was this dress by Casablanca. I tried on the sample and it fit like a dream. The consultant called Casablanca to try to find me one anywhere. They knew of none in white in any size, and I couldn’t find one on a preowned site.

I decided to buy a dress from China.

Buying a dress from China is a worrisome venture. Quality is not assured, and you don’t know what the working conditions are like in their production lines. The site I have decided to buy from is Light in the Box. I have found pretty good reviews for them and no warnings about the working conditions. More to come when I get the dress!

    I am considering buying a dress from the same place. I looked at countless reviews and it seemed ok. I can’t wait to hear about your dress when it arrives. I’m getting married in November and am trying to have a “Practical Weding” as well. Good luck and congratulations.
