    Hi, everybody! I need your expert opinions, please!

    My drama with my Mama about doing a TTD in my actual wedding dress has come to an end as of this morning! HOORAY FOR eBAY, I SAY! I feel like I searched the far reaches of the planet (well, of the internet anyway) to find a dress for less than $100 that wasn't completely hideous, and I had a little luck! Taking the advice of some of you who highly recommended looking on eBay for a cheaper dress for the TTD worked out beautifully. I ended up being the only bidder on this dress, which just so happens to be in my size, for only...drumroll, please --$75! The seller is even covering shipping costs!

    But, I wanted to post it on here and see what everyone thinks before I get too excited, you know? BE BRUTALLY HONEST, BDW Ladies!

    Here are the pics the seller took of herself in the dress:

          MarieSam, you're the best! Thanks so much...this might be hard to believe in this day and age, but of my long history of online purchases, I've never bought ANY type of clothing on the internet (more or less a wedding dress)!

          Bless you, dear!

                    It will be gorgeous!!! Is it similar at all to your real wedding gown? or totally different? Not that it matters, I'm just curious!
