So, we all know it's a part of being a woman. It happens to most of us, at some point in our life. It may be right out of high school, it may be soon after those crazy college years and for some of us, it may not be until we reach that 30th birthday or beyond! Yes, it's true, we are almost all asked to be a BRIDESMAID... many girls find this an honor and a very fun task for our greatest friends, others, well just dread the whole thing! Regardelss of which type of bridesmaid you are we ALL end up in the same situation when we wake up the next day and look at that dress. What am I going to do with this thing? I'm never going to wear this again (regardless of how hard the bride tried!!).
Well ladies, I may have a solution for you! I am SO excited about this discovery!! Because frankly, I LOVE to shop, but can't always do so as frequently as I would like (it's that silly little thing called bills). As listening to the radio, I heard the DJ mention this website and immediatley (I waited for a stoplight of course:)) pulled out my phone and looked it up.... http://www.newlymaid.com . It's so simple, so easy and you actually get something in return for all those bridesmaid dresses hanging in the closet collecting dust! You go on the website and request a mailer, ( I am waiting for mine to arrive any day!!). Once it is received, pull out those old dresses, as long as they have no snags, rips or stains newlymaid will take them! You send the dresses in to receive credit toward the purchase of one of their Little Black Dresses. I don't know about you, but I wear black A LOT, and these simple LBD's are perfect for me! And to get credit towards the purchase? Genious. I love this idea, I love this website and I can't wait to make my first purchase. Not only do you get a versatile LBD in return, your old dresses go to a great cause www.clothes4souls.org . Check out the dresses below (they change every few months!).
And here you go, just for some comic relief and proof that even wedding planners fall victim to the bridesmaid dress curse, some pictures of our staff at thier finest! Please note that although we are NOT that old, most of these pictures have been SCANNED from actual prints because they don't exist digitally! (Don't laugh please! OK, you are allowed, just this once....)
