Cute Idea

I have been on the Knot trying to find the bio that I found this link in, and haven't been able to get it. I was looking around on there yesterday and found someones bio with this cool link in it. This site, CocoMyles.com allows you to go on and design your own dress. The girl I found this from made cards to ask her girls to be bridesmaids and had a picture of the cover of the 27 Dresses movie with the girls head on it, and asked them to be bridesmaids and then to go to this site and pick their own dress. It was cute because she said "I promise I won't make you try on 27 dresses" or something to that effect.

So I spent some time designing my own dresses, because honestly, its kind of fun. I made four dresses, and I will post them, but I think this is pretty important...I was having a good time making them and then thought, "there has to be something hidden...I bet this is like IKEA and it's going to cost a million dollars to get this to me." So I put a dress together that was $128.00 and went through the checkout process and everything just short of actually buying it, and if I pick UPS Ground for shipping, which would take about a week and a half to get to me, shipping is free. FREE. They were going to put $128 on my Visa. That's it. I couldn't believe it. I pick out my own dress, color, style, and get it all in a week? Holy cow. So check out the dresses I made. The price is at the bottom of the dress on the price tag. What I really like, is that you get to pick the top and bottom, but its all one piece. I like the option of picking both, but I don't like two piece formal wear, it feels too much like everyday wear to me. The only thing I don't like, is that you don't get to try it on first...and I didn't check out their return policy.

This one and the second one are on the Custom Couture link, or when you first get to the page click on "Start Your Own Design"

This is from the "Celebrity Inspired" link. They have dresses that are like those worn by celebrities on the red carpet and you can make them your own.

This is also a "Celebrity Inspired" one, and I thought it was adorable. I really like this one.
