    So getting my dress ordered has been a HUGE nightmare. To make a long story short-ish:

    I found my dream dress online back in October of last year. I spent months calling around looking for it, but it turned out it was from the newest collection and wouldn't be in stores until January. I only found *1* store in my state that had ordered a sample. Fast forward to January, and the store calls me to say that they won't be getting the dress until May (my wedding is in July). Well, obviously I didn't want to order a dress that I had never seen, so I thought all hope was lost. I emailed the designer and asked if they had shipped this dress to anyone in my state. Turns out the boutique right down the street (who told me back in October that they had no intention of ordering the dress) had one. I called the boutique and was told they had received the sample 3 days prior. I was SO excited, I was going to get to try on my dream dress!

    Well....an hour later the girl from the boutique called. She went to pull the dress for me and couldn't find it. Turns out they sold the sample off the rack the day before. Argh!!! But, last Friday, they called to tell me that the girl who had purchased it had brought it in to be steamed, and I could come by to look only (no trying on!). I jumped on the chance, and I'm so glad I did. The dress was so amazing in person that I'm ordering it this afternoon without trying it on (I've tried on similar styles, so I'm not too worried)!

    So, here it is, my perfect dress!! (darnit, picture wouldn't embed, so here's the link)
