The detail: I was engaged and feeling a little sad that I never had the dress shopping experience. I felt like I needed to at least try something else on.
The insane: I bought the first dress I tried on... bumping my dress total up to two.
Allow me to elaborate on what happened. I actually wasn't out to try on or buy any dresses, but I was at one of the most dangerous stores in the universe:
This place always gets me with its amazing discounts! I was casually shopping for Nate (of all people). He needed a new pair of shoes and I knew that I could find a great deal at The Rack. Unfortunately, this section was all too close to the men's shoe section:
It was the salmon colored suit-dress that sucked me in (kidding). I just wanted to look to see what they had... and then try on one of the dresses for kicks... but it happened to be exactly my size (no alterations!) and the perfect length and only $140ish. So I bought it (knowing that I could return it within 30 days).
Ugh. I've even taken the two dresses over to a friend's house to help me choose but she was stuck as well.
I'll post pictures of myself in the two dresses next week. Maybe you can help me decide... or maybe it's time to seek counseling.
