For those of us in Canada, have you seen the General Mills cereal with the free Beach Towel offer on them? Personally I am not interested in a free beach towel, but I see you can donate it to the Tim Hortons Childrens Foundation for a child in their programme, what a super idea. I donated mine from the box of Banana Nut Cheerio's I ate.
Went to Toronto on Saturday to see about getting a dress for the wedding. Went to Ediths Fashions to see what they had. Narrowed it down to one dress but the price put me off. I had wanted to spend less than $500 but knew that wasn't going to happen with what I liked. So left empty handed and decided to check out this store which wasn't too far away.
To be fair this poor store didn't stand a chance as it was like going from driving a Rolls Royce to driving a Mini. The quality, the service, the choice was just not there. So we ended up going back to Edith's and me picking up the dress I liked at the price that I didn't like.
However it really did look lovely, its a royal blue colour with a beaded top with cap sleeves and a chiffon floaty skirt and it is long. The good news is that I can shorten the skirt and wear it for a wedding we`re going to next February and I will be able to wear it at Christmas parties or even going out for a special dinner when it is shortened. The quality and workmanship of the dress is superb, and as everyone said, it`s a once in a lifetime occasion dd getting married. They are ordering it in, in my size and it will be here by mid-September. I was able to try the dress on in a size less than I need and so I know how I look in it. The dress I bought is made by this company, but mine isn`t on the site.
So now I have to get shoes, which shouldn't be a hard job.......fingers crossed and a new handbag. I need to email the lady who is making my fascinator and discuss what we`re going to do with that now I have my dress.
Did I enjoy dress shopping..........NO I tried on a `bustier,`type top which meant I couldn't breath, but at least it did suck in all my wobbly bits. I tried a dress on that made me look like a very short barrel. What was nice on the hanger didn`t mean it looked nice on me. Of course the hot flashes kicked in and so it was even more uncomfortable. Overall I was glad to see the back of the store and the dress trying on part. If anyone in the Toronto area is looking for a dress or an outfit for a special occasion I would say look in Edith`s as it does have a wide collection of outfit`s they are pricy though.
I hope you don`t mind but I won`t be showing you a photo of the dress as I want to keep it as a surprise.
