So Wednesday en route to the parking garage for work I passed a men’s store that had a gorgeous wedding dress in the front window and commented thusly. We then proceeded to walk past that dress two more times with me stopping to look at it and commenting on how pretty it was. My colleagues were very encouraging and kept telling me that I should go try it on when we had some downtime. Once we realized it wasn’t actually being sold in that store but in a companion store I took a picture of the sign for the other store that accompanied the dress in the window.
Today we finished up our work at the office around 230pm and we couldn’t check into our new hotel yet so we headed into town. My first stop was the wool shop but of course they closed 2 hrs early today, just because I was in town. Then we headed over to the jewelry shop to pick something up for someone and I asked the jeweler if he could tell me where the shop was in my picture. It was actually very close to where we currently were so we stopped in and found out I needed an appointment but they told me to try back in about half an hour. We grabbed some food and came back and then proceeded to spend about an hour trying on wedding dresses.
I tried on 4 in all. 2 looked great, 1 wasn’t suited for a wedding but I would totally wear it in a vibrant color to the next gala event I go to. (Could someone please invite me to a gala event so I have a reason to get that dress? ) The 4th dress, well it was “whimsical”, completely not my style and looked silly. But I have been told to try on everything just to be sure. Now all I have to do is go back to the States and find a similar style dress and I should be in business. Oh and it would probably help if they were also less expensive. Turns out I was trying on some couture dresses. It’s no secret that I have champagne taste!
