Ex-Bride-To-Be Posts Hilarious Ad From Wedding Dress's Perspective
After splitting with her fiancé, one woman decided to sell her Diane von Furstenberg wedding dress on eBay -- and she's doing it in the funniest way possible.
The ex-bride-to-be, who goes by ijustheardtheshopbellring on eBay, wrote the unique listing from the perspective of the unworn dress, a long-sleeved white lace style that is no longer in production.
The auction title reads:
Rejected wedding dress seeks lasting love and holy matrimony
So far, the dress has received 42 bids and is currently going for about $1,827.
The auction will continue for another 27 hours, so if you're in the market for a wedding dress, check it out here.
As for the rest of you: Laugh and cry over the dress's ridiculously depressing (yet wonderfully cheeky) story.
The description reads:
I was supposed to be worn at City Hall in New York. I was going to be the main attraction of a 60s wedding theme. I was going to be low-key, but elegant (I still am, for that matter). I was going to complement a 60s updo, nude courts and a bouquet of Lily of the Valley. When my owner put on a dress just like me in Selfridges, she knew I was the one so she ordered me online and had me delivered to her husband-to-be in Brooklyn. I'm not over the top, nor am I too dressed down, and she thought she could perhaps wear me to other occasions in the future. She thought I was a dress she could look back on and smile, not cringe at fashion faux pas (she was right). When I arrived, she kept me sealed in my box so nothing could ruin me. Then they split up. And she kept me in the box. Because she couldn't bear to look at me. I am a constant reminder to her of what could have been. So she wants to sell me. Not necessarily to a bride, but to anyone looking to give me the home I deserve. A home where I'll get worn and admired and dry-cleaned (as and when necessary). She can't take me back to DVF because they no longer stock me. I'm limited edition, if you like. And the first time I have been taken out of my box is for these photos. Because who's going to buy a dress based on a picture of a box? I can't wait to be worn by you (and to see the back of my cardboard confines once and for all). Love, Zarita (in Ivory). xx
