Dress shopping alone?

Recommended Posts

Wow, I thought that I was the only one that wanted to go shopping by myself. It is great to hear that I am not crazy, or at least as crazy as some think!

I search for trunk shows and went to one for Priscillas and Yolandas alone. I also went to a bridal outlet (they get the leftover samples but many dresses were in good shape) alone. When I finally went with my MOH and her niece I realized what I had been missing - the oohhss and aaahhhhs and squeals. The first dress I tried on I bought. They squealed at it the LOUDEST. I am having my first fitting in December 2009. I can't believe I have to wait that long.


A little news - Vera Wang's 2010 line include a demi-couture collection of dresses under $7,000. If you go to her 2010 trunk show (I did), you get 15% off and a complimentary veil.


This is from an article:


"Wangâ€s new collection is as elegant and intricate as ever with a slight organic feel, showing she was unafraid to use color to cater to the more informal wedding. The gowns revealed different layers and details from every angle, and as Wang describes it, “Itâ€s as if the dresses have gone through the washing machine.†Veraâ€s new gowns create a certain lightness and energy with mismatched and strategically placed bows tied in different directions. Wang also has finished one of her career-long dreams; to make a black wedding dress (SJP may not regret her black wedding dress if she wore this one.)



Constructed originally for celebrities and socialites, Wangâ€s dresses are now becoming more affordable. Dresses that retailed for around $13,000 last season are now in the $7,000 range. Some gowns will even retail for less than $3,000. Wang has lowered her median price down 40%, having 10 gowns at $3,800 level (too bad I wasnâ€t getting married this year!)"

    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now. 
    • I think that would be a great idea. I have tried it once and loved it.!
    • That's really sweet. I am sure she would love that.!!
