I'm sad to say that today my dress arrived (see previous post) and unfortunately my worst fears became a reality when I put the dress on and found that it was in fact atrocious. I was worried that this was going to happen. It's always hard when you see something online and it just doesn't turn out the way you imagined. But not to worry, I will be returning it to Nordstrom's tomorrow in the hopes that there is something to satisfy my dress needs in the store. I'll let you know!
