The ruffles almost border on overwhelming on this dress, but it's just so cute I don't care. Over the top is my middle name... err, names. I remember buying it (cue nostalgic music): it was my first purchase after my shopping ban several Lents ago (prolly 3 years ago). I hadn't even stepped into a retail store in 40 days and I scooted my butt straight for Nordstrom. Looking through the racks, I spotted this-- and it was the only one left. I remember the sales rep telling me a woman and her daughter had come in earlier that day and loved the dress, but weren't sure so they said they'd come back the next day to get it. The sales rep goes, "I knew this would get bought up before they came back!" Apparently, they had just put it out that morning, and all were sold by the end of the day. I hate that I get a thrill out of scoffing up one of the last of something, but it made it even more exciting for me when I pulled out the Visa for the first time in over a month. Sigh. :) Good times... and it's happily ever after for me and salmon ruffly dress!
