I just purchased 8 of these sets from eBay for $2.78 a piece for a total of $22.24 with FREE ship...
I had such a great weekend off of work! On friday i spent the day getting my nails done and this time i splurged for a pedicure too (i thought after working 10 out of 11 days my feet deserved it :) )!! Saturday I went bridesmaid dress shopping with 4 of my bridesmaids and Sunday i spent the afternoon with my family and we decorated the house for Christmas! :)
So we started out on Saturday at Le Chateau because they now sell really nice formal dresses and are a lot cheaper than buying from a bridal shop. But unfortunately (and as i kind of expected) there were no dresses in my colour. There was however a dress that we all LOVED! But unfortunately not even near my colour scheme!
So we tried another dress shop and found a really cute dress (the orange ones in the pictures) but the only thing was that i would have to go with my back up colour choice (a really pretty light purpley pink) because it didnt come in the purple i was looking for. But I was okay with that.
Before deciding on that dress though we tried one more shop down the street. I ended up finding a dress that came in the PERFECT shade of purple and i was so happy EXCEPT that the dress was very plain...I was getting so stressed to the point where i was getting a headache because i either LOVED the dress but it didnt come in my colour, or I would love the colour but hate the dress.. So we decided to take a break and go for some lunch so we could think about things.
Then i came up with a great idea!!! We could buy the plain cocktail dress that came in the colour i wanted and we could just order extra fabric and have them tweak it to look like the ones from Le Chateau! The dress was the exact same fit and shape as the one at Le Chateau, the only thing that was missing was the ruffle across the top and down the side. Oh, and this dress also had a satin belt but we could easily get rid of that!
So we went back to the last bridal shop and explained my idea! They said we could totally do that and that they would sell me the extra fabric at cost!
Im so excited because we are ending up with pretty much the same dress that the girls fell in love with at Le Chateau! It just wont be the same material...the dress we picked is satin whereas the one from le chateau is almost like a taffeta!
They all love the dress and the colour and they all feel gorgeous in it!!! thats the best part!! :)
