Shopping Score!

I know that it's a little early to be shopping for wedding wear (i.e. bridal shower, rehearsal dinner etc), but I've had my eye on a certain dress since December.

I've been stalking the Nordstroms website ever since looking for sales, coupon codes, etc. Three months later and this baby has yet to go on sale (HOLY CRAP, has it really been three months since Christmas? It feels like yesterday-- sorry, moving on).



The picture is not necessarily flattering, but it looks SUPER cute on and in person. I love it (purple is by far my favorite color)! It's by Adrianna Pappell, it's silk shantung and it's $138.00.

The old Ashley would have no problem dropping 138 bucks on a silk shantung dress. Especially if it was for an occasion such as a bridal shower. The new Ashley is on a strict budget thanks to her fiance, an expensive honeymoon, and the need for a one carat total weight wedding band.

When I realized that Nordstrom wasn't going to throw me a bone, I started watching ebay... every single week. The dress was NEVER listed, until one day, a week ago---- the only one ever listed---- and in my size.

It was fate. I needed it. Sorry fiance. Did I mention that I got it for less than 60 bucks new with tags?

Less than $60, I'd say that is a great deal and a sign that it was okay to purchase.

I really like it!

Yay eBay! That is an adorable dress!

No need to apologize to fiance. I'm sure there's a video game out there that costs right around $60 that he's been wanting and he can now justify purchasing!
