Can't find a ball gown!!!

Post by Jeannette on Mon Oct 25, 2010 10:04 am

We went to two malls on Saturday and NO ONE had gowns. NO ONE!!!

Belk, Sears, Deb (they ALWAYS have fricken gowns), another Sears, Macy's, some other fricken store.

sigh

Isn't it like homecoming season? Shouldn't there be dresses anywhere?!?!?!

Did you check Davids Bridal? I hate their wedding dresses, but they always have good dresses for the ball. I always have a hard time finding formal dresses because of my chest, but I always have luck there.

I never thought about Davids!!! Hmmm...

Do you think they'd be outrageously priced? I never actually went in there to look... lol

Like $120 to $150 range. Kinda expensive, but if you find something that fits it is totally worth it.

They have maternity dresses too.

Hmmmm. I'll have to look. I was planning on spending a bit anyway. It's kinda out of season and most of the dresses I've found in the past were in the $80's, $100's. I'll hit the clearance rack. lol

I'm just debating what's gonna look best... A sleek evening gown (thinking no because of my big ass, and big ass hips. lol), or a a-line type dress to hide some of the babies. lol

See what they have for maternity there. I think A-line would look nice.

I think empire always made me look funny. They made my boobs like gigantic and made me look wide because of my shortness'. I'll have to browse. It's too far to go on lunch, I wonder if Ross might have something.

I need to stop at Target...I want chips and french onion dip now. lol

Davids Bridal had some nice dresses! If I had the money I would have bought that dress that I tried on last time I went looking...but alas I've decided to just wear the same dress I've worn the last two years lol

What kinda dress are you going with? How formal is it? Over time I heard it's an amazing mix.

Some people go NUTS and all out, others go very casual.

I was thinking a plain ol' a-line prom dress and getting my hair put up...

No flashing heels! That's all I gotta say, based on a prior experience.

The red looks so good! I don't think I can rock red though.

Agh, I have to pick a color too. lol

Do you think blue would look stupid? I'm not trying to match blues, but I don't want to look like a dummy either... Like a dark blue...not quite navy...

The dress I was going to get from Davids Bridal was going to be this one in Marine
http://www.davidsbridal.com/Product_Chiffon-Dress-with-Beaded-Neckline-and-Straps-F14006_Bridal-Party-Bridesmaids-Shop-By-Length-Long-Bridesmaid-Dresses

It looked much better on me than it did that girl though LMAO

Blue will look great!
