If you have been reading my blog for a while now, you should already know that I'm a bargain shopper...so guess where I went first? Yep, Marshalls. For some reason, knowing that they allow dogs in their stores made me like them more. I visited a couple of Marshalls, one by our house and one close to my office. I only got to try two things at the one by our house because I was only there because I forgot my house keys and Ron was going to drop his keys off to me on his way to the gym.
For the wedding, I wanted to wear something formal but still fun. Something that does not show too much skin and is [super] comfortable. Also, no tight fitting parts so I can eat as much I want ;) My good friend, Laen's mommy, was a huge help in my search for the perfect dress, I just kept on sending her pictures. There was a dress I really wanted that she consulted with our other friend that they didn't like but my mom and sister liked. The deciding factor was Ron.: he X-ed it. The second piece is the striped dress that I tried on because I just really wanted to see how it fits.
At this point, the wedding is in 6 days and I still don't have a dress. My brain is now in panic mode so...
During my lunch break on Wednesday, I drove to the Marshalls in Studio City and looked for Size 6 dresses, I got 8 dresses for my first trip to the fitting room. Tried all of them on and they were all too big. I was happy and sad at the same time. Well, there was also this Calvin Klein dress that made me look like a bright blue cloud. That made me happy.
I went back to look for Size 4s and smalls but there were very little choices. Another dress I tried was this navy maxi that made the part where my hips and thighs meet look very weird. I took a picture to document the weirdness. LOL Oh and also this dress that is very similar to the dress I wore at Laen's baptism.
Crisis has been averted after trying on the next 8 dresses. I found the perfect one in my size that will go with any of the pumps I have at home and my favorite sequin-y clutch. I'll share the dress I picked when I post pictures from Sunday! All I need now is to go to Macy's and buy something from their registry. After that, I can be officially excited ;)
Have a great weekend, everyone! Our weekend is going to be a busy one plus, the in-laws are staying over this weekend so good luck to us ;)
Do you guys have any fun plans? :)
