So, to recap: I fell in love with a dress, it was pricey and needed some changes. I asked a friend, she said yes, then she ran out of time. I looked around, it was gonna cost me tons, I found some alternatives.
Jonathan LOVES Ikea Pax Wardrobes. Feeds his OCD, I guess. We looked at them in Ikea. You want $1000? HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! So I looked around online (I SWEAR this is related) and found TWO for sale for $400 total, but she’ll take $350. They’re down in a loft in TriBeCa (3rd floor walkup…but with the height of the ceilings its really a 5th floor). We go down to pick up and VOILA! We’re buying them from a CLOTHING designer.
Guess who is going to work with the original dress to design something wearable and cheap? Oh yeah, that’s right. A clothing designer (who has to remain nameless). She has a gorgeous line and is worn by some rather well known people, but, and this is fair, she doesn’t want it to get out that she made a dress for under $700 when all her dresses retail for $5000 or more. Nor that she DESIGNED a dress for a pleeb.
So it won’t be my dress, the one I wanted, but it will be a completely unique dress, one no one has ever seen or bought and one that can never BE bought.
So that’s nice.
