Many moons ago, I had dreams of a pink wedding dress. As you all know, the pink, fluffy confection didn’t work out, and the Universe handed me a different dream – one that was a definitive soft ivory color. Bossyboots is the nosy sort, so I haven’t been able to tell my dress story until now!
So, after giving up visions of pink, I visited several bridal boutiques around the Chicago area. I even visited a shop on the infamous Oak St (they’re known for taking your entire bank account and STILL having to use a credit card for the final payment!). I really tried all kinds of places. Finally, all on my own, I went to a tiny place out in the ‘burbs. I walked in at 10:55a for my 11a appointment… and I walked out twenty minutes later with my dress.
You see, by the time I bought my dress, there were two lil’ numbers that I had fallen in love with… one was double my budget, the other quadruple. Um yeah. I didn’t buy either of them. Wanna know which ones?
