So, after a long day's work on Friday (9am-10pm!) Mr Pug and I got a great night's sleep, woke up Saturday, and headed to Newburgh to get the dress! It was absolutely perfect. Poor Mr Pug hung out in the car while I just gawked at my perfect dress, falling in love with it all over again. If you want to see a picture- check here! (NOT YOU MR PUG!) Oh and ignore the hair... this is after the long, long car-ride.
So I tried on a pair of shoes while I was there, and the length of the dress was almost perfect with the shoe. I figured oh, I'll just look the shoes up and then I'll know what heel height I can get. Also- surprisingly- I really liked the shoes, even without an ankle strap! Then I looked on the Coloriffics website... they come in two heel heights. REALLY?! That screwed me a bit. I THINK they were these, "Fantasy."
I remember being kind of surprised that I really didn't to alter much if ANY off the bottom of the dress. That's the reason I think it might be the shorter style above. However, I can't trust my judgment... could they have been "Desire?"
I really have no idea. And I am thinking about just calling the store to confirm the shoe style instead of re-trying on the dress with my own shoes of different heights. I am scared of the dress! I don't want to mess it up! Mr Pug's aunt will be storing the dress for us (no room in the tiny Pug bungalow) and I fully intend to not have to try it on until my first fitting.
Have you picked up your dress yet? Was it nearly wear-ready (like mine) or did you need a lot of alterations? And are you a "try-it-on-daily" bride, or a "tuck-it-away" bride?
