Shopping Heaven

N, J, and I went shopping yesterday at Pavilion for my wedding heels.

It was unexpectedly The Best Shopping Trip Ever.

I had gone to Pavilion a fortnight ago, and whilst strolling in Parkson with J, spotted a gorgeous Carven Sense tube dress by Carven Ong that would be perfect for the ROM. I love Carven Ong’s wedding gowns but there was no way I could afford to buy one. When bridal shop hunting, I simply had to content myself with asking the bridal shops whether or not they carried Carven Ong dresses thus ensuring that I could end up renting one. Funnily enough when I was picking my dresses on Thursday (see my entry below), I was not bothered with labels at all! ๐Ÿ™‚ Too busy gushing at myself in the mirror, hahaha… narcissistic me.

Anyway, I had a look at the price tag and it was just within budget. The price tag was highlighted in yellow, so I asked the sales lady if it was on sale, but she said it wasn’t so I decided that I might be able to find a cheaper dress. It is after all 5 months before my ROM.

Well… during The Best Shopping Trip Ever, we were in Parkson again AND this time the dress was 20% off! Muahahaha… there were 3 only, in sizes S, M and L. So I took the M and went to the dressing room. It was so pretty, I loved the diamante detail. It was a little bit tight on top so I thought maybe I was an L, so I asked J to grab the L, but he came back and so there was no size L! I was like “Of course there is! I saw it!” It turned out that seconds after I took M, another couple took L and was trying it on! Of course I couldn’t get M unless I tried L, what if it was the right size for me? So we anxiously waited for the other couple to come out, hoping that they weren’t gonna buy it too. N (doing a great job as my Man of Honour) asked the sales lady to tell the girl trying it on that it was horrid on her. Hahahaha…. Luck was with us, cause they decided not to get it, so I got to try it on too. It turned out that I am an M after all ๐Ÿ™‚ S and L also had different diamante detail compared to M, and M’s was way nicer. They also had a free alteration service, so they measured me up, and next week I’ll be picking it up! ๐Ÿ™‚ I was really surprised that I managed to find my ROM dress so soon. I had been dreading shopping for it.

We then focused on the original purpose of the shopping trip  finding heels that are tall enough for me and not just pretty but wedding pretty. I had brought the highest pair of heels I had to the bridal shop when trying on my dresses, and I knew that I definitely had to get a pair as tall as those or I’d have problems on the actual day itself. The dresses looked so good when I put on tall heels. I was advised by Boey to get silver heels because if I bought white ones, I’d have to buy another pair to match my evening gowns. My shopping luck continuing, I very quickly found 3 tall and pretty silver Bill Keith shoes. Alas! I soon found that they didn’t have my size. I have midget size 35 feet.

I was not to be deterred though, fresh off my joy from finding my ROM dress, I decided to look around some more and found a pair of gorgeous white Zang Toi heels, 10% off, sparkly, tall and amazingly, comfy! I decided on the spur of the moment to stretch my budget a bit and buy another pair of heels to match my evening gowns. I snapped up the heels, and after prancing around in them in my room for an hour tonight, I’ve tucked them away in my room to wait for my big day.

Funnily enough, I only just realized tonight that I don’t even have to buy another pair of heels, because both my evening gowns are pastel, and white heels will go with them. ๐Ÿ™‚ As my heels were so comfy, I also thought that maybe they were shorter than the pair of shoes I brought to the bridal shop. I measured them earlier, and guess what, my heels are in fact taller! *bliss*
