Well, I really want to thank everyone for their opinions...
Last night I went and bought dress #1! I could have walked out of the store with it right then and there, but they were out of cloth garment bags (only had clear ones), but they are getting them in soon, so the lady said I could leave it there and come get it when the cloth ones come in - about a week or two. I figured it would be easier to hide in the house when FI is very curious! Not to mention, for travel.
SO excited! Thanks for all the kind comments ladies!
Now the goal is to lose a bit of weight so I do not have to have the panel in the back moved.
