Recently, I had the opportunity to visit David’s Bridal in East Lansing (Meridian Towne Centre, 4940 Marsh Rd., Okemos, MI 48864) and shop for New Year’s Eve Dresses! My wedding anniversary is New Year’s Eve and I like to look special. I had such an incredible time while I was there. I tried on dresses for an hour and half straight! I was assisted by a wonderful salesperson named Ann. She was so understanding and sweet. She laughed, took pictures and video all through the appointment, and left me feeling like a princess. I was fortunate too, in that she was close to me in age, so she could be sympathetic to problems that Women over 45 might experience (ghastly pale legs, saggy boobs, scary arms, etc.) and suggest fashions which were cute, surprising AND most importantly age appropriate.

The David’s Bridal Store in East Lansing was welcoming from the moment I walked in. I was greeted by the Assistant manager, Lisa and assigned my very own salesperson, Ann. The dressing room was well lite and clean (a real plus in my book!) I chose some styles myself and Ann chose a few more for me, as well. I needed the right kind of shoes and Ann brought out these stunning Vera Wangs. I also didn’t have all the right shapewear and she helped me out there as well!

I was quite surprised by the selection of cocktail dresses and New Year’s eve outfits for Women over 45 available at David’s Bridal. What I found the most shocking were the prices. Most dresses were under $150 and a nice selection of sale dresses were sale priced at $29-$49 (yes, you read that right). As you can see by the pictures here, they had many styles, colors, fabrics and sizes of dresses as well, for Women over 45! No matter what look you were trying to capture for a special day, I felt that I could easily find something that would suit my needs. I actually loved 2-3 of the 10 dresses I tried on so much, that I had an extremely hard time narrowing my choices down!

There were a few dresses from David’s Bridal that were just a little too sexy for me but they did fit nicely, one that I couldn’t zip up in the back (fat back) and there wasn’t a larger size, a few that were too demure (we Blondes like to have FLASH). But overall, I was shocked to find the variety of lengths, styles, and fabrics that I had. My consultant got to know my body and style as I went along and even grabbed a few selections for me that she felt would be figure flattering–and she was dead on.

In the end, I did make a very tough choice from the huge selection at David’s Bridal. Ann assured me that the dress was just right. I was rung up quickly, my dressed was wrapped appropriately and I was on my way. I may never have such a fun assignment again…but I will treasure my “Queen for a Day” experience at David’s Bridal for a long long time.
