last sunday i went to Kleinfeld for their monthly wedding dress sample sale. i wasn't expecting to buy anything because i figured i should get some other wedding stuff in order first (like, um, pick a date?), but i thought it would be fun to see what they had.
and guess what? i bought my dress! it wasn't at all what i thought i wanted in a wedding dress, but when i put it on i was all, LOOK AT ME BEING A BRIDE!, so i knew it was "the one."
since i was buying a sample (50% off the retail price thankyouverymuch), i had to bring the dress home with me that day. and since i was by myself when i bought it, i spent a good 20 minutes on 6th avenue holding an insanely long and heavy garment bag over my head while i tried to flag down cabs with my legs. fun times.
when i finally got a cab, i threw the dress in the back and climbed on top of it and proceeded to tell the driver all about my new wedding dress all the way to brooklyn. i think he was genuinely interested.
when i got to my building, i told everyone in the elevator, "THIS IS MY WEDDING DRESS!" and when i got home...
...i cuddled up next to the dress and cooed sweet nothings into it's plastic bag.
as you can probably tell
i was pretty excited.
