Boy, avert your eyes. There is nothing for you here. I repeat nothing.
For the lovely ladies. I must apologise but I think I may have built up this whole dress thing a little too much!
Did I go dress shopping? No
Did I put a lot of thought into my choice? No
Did I buy it from eBay? Yes
Do I think it's the one? Maybe, maybe not.
Did it cost me less than £50 and if I don't wear it can I sell it on? Yes.
Whilst I am in love with beautiful designer dresses (namely the delectable dresses from Jenny Packham) and do like my pretty things, in my heart of hearts I do think it is slightly absurd to drop £3000+ on a dress. A white dress at that, a dress that will be so dirty by the end of the debauchery that it maybe an oh so fabulous grey.
So I was randomly wandering through the pages of eBay looking for that perfect Jenny Packham when I found a dress which I had seen on the Phase Eight website. I don't know why I had been looking on their site but I did have a little swoon over their bridal range.
And so drum roll please. Please don't be too disappointed! It arrived yesterday and I was far too nervous to try it on straight away. I mean, this could be my wedding dress!?!? Craziness. Once I summoned up the courage, I stood in front of the mirror and thought, "Gosh, I could really wear this for my wedding day." I almost felt like a bride. It was a strange experience. And yes, I twirled around on my tippy toes like I was 3 years old again.
Now, boy I simply do not trust you. Please turn away now!
And so because an act of commission is far worse than omission I am going to add the link to the page rather than the picture. Although I never really understand why the boy can't see the dress.
Enjoy my lovelies, (Oh bean just say no!) - Phase Eight - also the front bridal page has a beautiful picture of the dress on a real person (well model!)
Maybe it is the dress, I do feel like a bride and if I can't find an alternative it will almost definitely be the dress. It just doesn't blow me away and not quite what I have envisioned. Then again, is the dress that important? Well, no, I do really, really kind of want the fantabulous designer dress.
Now obviously I would love to know what you fair ladies think? Pray tell.
