I was looking for something girly, spring-ish, whimsical and fun. I imagined a fancy sundress in a bright color. I looked at Macys, found a cute orange dress, but it didn't fit right. I went to Urban Outfitters, tried on some nice dresses but none of them had the right feel. I tried Forever 21 and didn't like what I was seeing. I even went to Anthropologie, which meant I was REALLY going to splurge on a dress, and came home empty handed.
My favorite stores were not bringing any results. While chatting with a girlfriend about my hunt, she lead me to a website which turned out to be a gold mine.

There were so many cute dresses! And the prices weren't bad! I think I spent about an hour just browsing the site. I finally needed to give myself a break so I put some dresses in my wish list and turned off the computer. The craziness of life kept me away from my search for about a week and when I came back I found that all of the items on my wish list were out of stock! What!? It had only been a week! I then learned that there are only a limited number of each dress available on the site and the good ones go fast. I then sort of stalked the site for the next couple of weeks looking for the perfect dress. And then one evening I found it.

One of my fashionable friends happen to be staying with us and I quickly called him into the room for his opinion. He gave me his approval and I ordered it then and there. I didn't want it to be sold out the next time I checked. It came in the mail about 4 days later and it was perfect!
I think the dress worked out great and I can't wait to share the pictures! Did you have to hunt for the perfect engagement photo dress?
