Dating blogger Yue Xu was wandering around Nordstrom Rack minding her own biz when she spied a gorgeous Jessica McClintock wedding gown on sale for one cent. The strapless dress had been erroneously marked down from $275 to only a penny. Several Nordstrom employees gathered around as a manager furiously entered the dress’s SKU into the register. Again and again, the price came up as one cent. After several minutes and dozens of attempts, Nordstrom actually honored the price on the tag. The only problem? Yue has no plans of getting married anytime soon and, well, she thought it might be a little crazy to buy a wedding dress when she wasn’t even engaged. So Yue did something extremely cool — she bought the dress and is now giving it away.Says Yue on her blog:
Listen, I’m a single gal and though I see a wedding in my future, it’s not in the near future. I have no use for this beautiful dress. Not to mention that it’s taking up room in my tiny studio. And hello, how scary would it be to bring a guy over with a wedding gown hanging outside my closet?! So, I would love to give it to someone more deserving. Maybe you have a wedding coming up and haven’t budgeted enough for a dress, or you want to dye it and turn it into your dream prom dress, I want to hear about it.
