Ok - so here''s the story...which some of you have probably already read part of...

I found a dress that I loved (Jasmine f821). I was waiting to buy it so I could see a few more, confirm that it was the one for me. While I was waiting, my best friend from high school (who also got engaged on the same day as me...) picked the same dress. By complete chance. I guess growing up together gave us the exact same taste (and life timeline). I don''t want to wear the same dress, so I started looking around.

The other day, I discovered that I loved the off the shoulder look - and tried on Alfred Angelo 1148. I loved it the second I put it on. So I have been looking around online for deals and found JustPrettyBridals on eBay. I put in a "Best Offer" for $330 with free shipping (they were asking $398 and retail is around $550)....and they accepted the offer!

I was planning on trying on a couple more dresses, but I just LOVE this one and I think it was meant to be!

Wow, I love it. I was looking for something like this when I got married, but couldn''t find it. I got one similar, but strapless.

I LOVE that dress and tried it on myself (FI unfortunately hated it; he doesn''t like ruched looks). Is that you in the picture, or the ebay seller (or maybe you in the sample dress but not the right size)? My only concern is that the dress looks way too big! It''s tied so tightly that you can''t really see the corset, and the off-the-shoulder sleeves don''t fall right. If that is you and your dress in the picture, just make sure you have a good seamstress who can alter it to fit your shape.

It''s me in the size 8 sample dress. I am ordering a 4!

The corset back is my absolute fave, and I want to make sure you can see a bunch of it. Don''t worry!

Also, what do you guys think of doing a pearl choker with it?

I was a little nervous about buying mine from an online place - but they had over 4800 great reviews on Ebay and I was luckily able to try on the dress before.

P.S. I am also not sure about the choker now. I photoshopped one in and didn''t like it so much. You guys are always right...

Oh, good! I had a feeling that was the case.

I think a pearl choker would go very nicely with the neckline. But maybe one that goes into a Y shape rather than a simple choker would look better with the V?

What a classy dress. It looks great on you. Is it sufficiently comfortable?

Thanks for all your complements, everyone!

I am so excited and still kind of in shock. I put in that offer, thinking I'd never get it - then BAM! I suddenly had a wedding dress!

Never thought that would happen today...

Oh, and yes, the dress is really lightweight and comfortable. It's not stiff like a lot of the dresses I tried on.

I say stick to this gown... It''s classic, it''s simple yet very elegant. It''s also perfect on your figure!

You can search for more but will just make it more confusing. If you got that "Aaaawwww" feeling when you tried it on, I say this is it!
