Today is the running of the brides! I'm missing it right now! Hundreds of brides and their "teams" camped outside Filene's Basement in Union Square in NYC last night be the first ones in when doors opened at 8:00AM. They're ripping thousands of wedding dresses, often heavily discounted designer dresses, off the racks right now and trading and fighting over them. I, happily, am not there. I'm at my office! My dress is in my closet. Although it would have been kind of fun, I'm happy to not be so stressed out right now, fighting with the masses. :)

It's one cheap dress against another... to the death!
And check out my lazy photoshopping skills!
So, I thought it was kind of settled with the J.Crew dress, but then I went to the mall on a Saturday night with my friend Caroline. She can spot a sale from the other end of the mall, and she spotted one in BCBG. She asked if I minded if we stopped in, and there it was... hanging there for all to see. A great wedding dress asking to be tried on. It fit. Well. But they have such a crappy return policy that I didn't buy it right away. In fact, I had Caroline take this picture and I emailed it to people from the fitting room from my phone asking people for emergency help. Can you see the anguish and indecision in my face?
So, I asked them to put it on hold until Monday, but then Sco and I were in the city and we were near a BCBG, so I tried it on there, too. He liked it enough that I decided to buy it. And it was on sale for $217!!
Now, I have until tomorrow night to return it for store credit, otherwise, it's mine forever, whether I wear it to my wedding or not. The J.Crew one can still be returned at this point. I'm heavily leaning towards the new BCBG. So far, the BCBG has the support of Caroline, my mom, and Sco, but one of my sisters likes the J.Crew better. So, what do you think?
