If you are happy and feel good in it, then it doesnt matter how much it was or if someone else wore it first it is that you LOVE it!
That is sad and I'm sorry that happened. I forgot to mention I had the dress still on hold until the next day "Just in Case" cause your right when you find the dress there should be no exceptions. BUT I was very surprised how much the upsale was at this store.

I did four appointments spread out over 4 days. I didn't want to feel overwhelmed each day but I wanted to remember how I felt in each dress since I have the memory of a goldfish and they don't allow you to take photos. After the third appointment I was just going to settle (I realize now that I was settling) for one at the first shop because everyone said it looked amazing on me. Out of all the ones I'd tried on it was the best but I wasn't really into buying it and I attributed that to me never getting emotionally attached to things, so I thought it was okay. I kept my last appointment and it was there I found a dress that I ended up buying. Once I had it on, I thought, "Dang, I look good!" I turned again and again in it and like it more and more. I didn't want to take it off so I decided to go with it. There were no fireworks going off, no crying or big Ah-haa moments and visualizations of me walking down the aisle but I felt beautiful in it, comfortable and I felt it suited me. And I'm so happy I found it because I really love it!
That is all that matter is that you loved it!! you have any pictures??!!
