Maid of Honor Dress

We are skipping the whole wedding party thing - no bridesmaids and groomsmen and no flowergirls and ring bearer. We’re keeping it simple and just having a maid of honor and best man. This has made it a lot easier to decide on 1 dress for Paula, my maid of honor. By keeping it small it also saves us a lot on the flowers too.

I first came across this dress when I headed for BCBG at the Carlsbad outlets. It was hanging in the window of the Barney’s New York outlet and I automatically jumped to the conclusion that a Barney’s gown would definitely be way out of our budgets. Still I couldn’t help but notice aside from its sleek elegance,  it was the exact shade of my wine color (which is a freakin’ hard ass color to find.) Out of curiosity I went to peek out the price tag on our way out. It’s a CO-OP dress that was dropped down to $249 from $385. Still I knew that would be too much for Paula to spend, but my bargain shopper instinct told me that eventually the price would have to drop lower and then the stalking began.

I seriously stalked this dress waiting for it to go on sale. Everytime JD and I drove to visit his parents in Oceanside, I would ask if we could stop by the outlets to check on the dress. For weeks the price stayed at $249. About 2 weeks ago we dropped by again and I grinned when I saw that the gowns were gone from the original rack. They had been moved to the clearance racks! I gleamed when I turned the price tag  reading “$189″ in red ink.  That fit into Paula’s $200 budget. I had a feeling there was a chance the price would get slashed even lower but didn’t want to risk it. Her she is………..

Yes Paula I’m wearing your brand new Barney’s dress. You said you wanted to see pics of it ;-) and because I fought the temptation to keep it for myself, I most likely will borrow it :-P

I was wanting to post this yesterday, but got pretty sidetracked with the news of Michael Jackson’s death. I didn’t think it would affect me the way it did, but when I listened to the news and got into my car to hear the radio paying tribute, the waterworks started as the first tribute song to play was “Man in the Mirror.” I am really shocked and sad at the loss of an icon that was a special memory of my childhood. May he rest in peace. =*(
