Guess what I did this weekend??
That’s right! I found me a wedding dress!! And I supported a wonderful charity at the same time! While lurking about the Weddingbee boards, I found a forum about a bridal shop in Lynchburg, Virginia (read: 4hrs away from me) that gets donations (samples, discontinued & overstock) from big name bridal stores and sells them at amazing prices. The proceeds are then used to help women & children from domestic violence. Talk about a win-win situation! Not only did I get my dress for a steal, I was able to support a wonderful cause! Read more about it from the fabulous chica who posted it on the ‘bee, Small and Chic in Cville. And while I would love to show you the dress, I can’t risk the boy seeing it, sorry kids 😦
BUT a wedding dress wasn’t my only find in Lynchburg. If you recall my last visit to Lynchburg, there is a J.Crew clearance center down there that must be checked out! During this trip, I bought a beautiful tan leather handbag with a retail value of $188 for only $50!
Ain’t it purdy? It’s my first “grown-up” purse. Typically my purse purchases involve teeny tiny handbags or colorful cotton totes. I had been looking for something big, classy and versatile for awhile and low and behold, Lynchburg had my answer! Seriously, I have big puffy heart love for that town! Hope you had as good as a weekend as I did!!
