With her dream dress back in her possession, she’s reluctant to hand it over in case she can’t get it back.
“I still don’t trust it at this point, I’d rather just cut my losses,” Khalil said in a telephone interview with CBS News on Thursday. “It’s not just the money, but the actual dress that I love. I don’t want to lose it.”
When Khalil asked David’s Bridal for her money back, nearly $300, the company refused.
Khalil said knew she wanted to buy a David’s Bridal dress long before an engagement was on the table. While living in London, Khalil went to the store’s opening in 2012 with a friend and was in awe.
“It was plush and really quite luxurious, just such a nice experience,” Khalil said.
But when it was her turn to find a dress, Khalil said the experience was underwhelming and a bit disappointing. “I feel that’s hemorrhaged along the way,” Khalil said.
