Found it, tried it, BOUGHT IT! All in a period of about 45 minutes. We didn't even plan on going to the store where we found it!
Looking at it on the hanger it was EXACTLY what I DIDN'T want but once I put it on it was EVERYTHING that I wanted.
I mean seriously ladies it's Ivory, I wanted white, not only is it strapless but it SWEETHEART, I wanted halter and stayed as far away from strapless as I could, it has gold accents I wanted silver! But OMG I love it. I bought it off the rack for $400. It's a bit on the small side but a little more focus, determination and exercise and a little less food and I'm sure I can get in to it. I have pictures of me in it but I'm having some technical difficulties at the moment but I will get them up eventually!
YAY I found my dress!
