So I love my dress. I found it online, printed it out, and hunted it down to try it on. I fell in love instantly; itâ€™s me in every way. The retail price of this dress was over my budget, but I scored and found a pristine sample that came in under budget. The only potential set back is that the dress is very form fitting and I donâ€™t anticipate being very comfortable in it. Now I knew this all along but was willing to sacrifice comfort for a few hours (yes I love the dress that much). Secondly, Iâ€™m 5â€™10â€ and this dress only permits me to wear shoe that donâ€™t exceed 1â€. I love heels and itâ€™s been very difficult to find a shoe that I like adnwill work with this dress because of the heel restriction.
In the interim, I have a friend who happened to buy one of my top 5 dresses. She ended up eloping in Vegas and no longer needs the dress. My curiosity got the best of me and I tried it on again, big mistake because now Iâ€™m thinking about buying it off of her and I will have two dresses. She got a killer deal on this dress as it was ordered by another bride who canceled her wedding and she only had to pay the 50% balance. And since weâ€™re friends, sheâ€™ll give me a deal and reduce her asking price. Now if I switch dresses and sell my original (even if I lose a bit of $) I will still be well under my original budget. Itâ€™s actually possible that when itâ€™s all said and done, I might only use a little over half of my original dress budget. And the comfort factor of this dress isnâ€™t an issue. I donâ€™t love this dress, but I really like it and I love that I will be saving a considerable amount of money. I will have to buy some sort of sash, and I can wear shoes up to 2-3/4â€
What to do???
