The Big Reveal!

Operation Goal Dress is complete! If you read my last post you know that I put my original goal dress on Thursday night only to discover my journey had been so successful that the dress I had in mind actually ended up being too big. Despite trying to remain calm and come up with some quick-fix solutions I spent a sleepless night plagued with a recurring nightmare that my dress inevitably falls off as I walk down the aisle, thus; ruining my best friends wedding!

Needless to say I awoke Friday morning in a bit of a panic!! I needed to get a new dress!! WHAT?! The wedding was the next day and I needed to leave the city in approximately 3 hrs to ensure I was home for the rehearsal, and I am the maid of honour! OH NO!! So not only am I feeling completely scattered but also like a horrible friend. I was outside the mall before the doors were even unlocked and proceeded to rush around like a complete maniac. Luckily the attire for this wedding was flexible. All of us girls were told to find a dress that was cocktail length and a varying shade of purple. And thankfully after 3 stores I eventually stumbled upon a perfect purple dress, very similar in cut and colour to my original dress with the exception of actually being in my size! YES!! SOLD!! DONE!! LETS GET TO THIS WEDDING!

So friends it all worked out. The day was amazing! I have returned home after a truly fabulous weekend away with my girlfriends. My stomach hurts from laughing so hard. The wedding was beautiful. And all my hard work paid off. Check out the pics from the day, my results, and my new dress!
