What does one do with a wedding dress once divorced? Post the most honest Facebook ad and go viral!
Mother-of-one Lauryn, is currently going through a divorce, so she decided to post an ad in her local Facebook buy/sell/swap page to rid herself of her wedding dress and the memories associated… and it’s amazing.
The post reads:
Wedding Dress For Sale - Worn once by mistake
Please help remove this beautiful Maggie Sottero dress from my life. It looks stunning on, enough to distract you from the fact you are entering into a marriage with a compulsive liar.
Will fit someone size AU 6-8 and tailored to my height (164cm). The dress is in excellent condition, unlike my marriage.
Comes with a certificate of authenticity (unlike the wedding vows). Bad luck has been removed through expensive dry cleaning. I know this for sure, because when I got it dry cleaned post-separation I became happier, more confident and discovered what it feels like to be genuinely loved and treated well in a relationship.
ORIGINALLY $3100 NEW. Asking $350 as this will cover the cost of some smoking hot lingerie from Honey Birdette.
Not getting married? That's okay! This dress can be worn on many different occasions:
It would look great when you are washing the dishes, catching the train and while you are standing in line at Service NSW to do a name change because looking at the name you took on makes you feel nauseated and filled with more regret than a drunken one night stand you had in '07 ....
Wear it and run after random men in the street yelling "I LOVE YOU! COME BACK!".
Wear it to the pub and people will buy you celebration drinks. Even better, wear it to the pub, fake cry and see the sympathy drinks pour in from every guy there who would love to be your rebound. The dress will have itself paid off in booze within one night."
Since the post gained so much attention, Lauryn decided to take it one step further, creating a GoFundMe page to raise money for her divorce fees.
"I doubt I will get to this amount, and that's cool. In the rare chance I go over it, the money will be spent on booze to celebrate and possibly some smoking hot lingerie from Honey Birdette."
Well, Lauryn must be beaming now, because in just one day she has passed her goal of $420, reaching $540!
