Dum Dum De Dum...Part 2 - The Dress!
so I am a wee bit groggy this morning, you see last night my friend Diana and I went out and braved the very very cold to looking for wedding dresses...
as you can see from the photos.
now, those of you following my blog will notice that it is not the original dress that I had wanted, well sometimes things change, and for the better.
you see I tried on a ton of dresses....and damn wedding wedding dresses for running so small it really gave me a complex about my body...but whatevs...
anyway, I tried on the original dress and it was beautiful, very princess and lovely....but, standing there in front of a jillion mirrors looking like a princess, I realized. I am not really a princess type of person, am I??
Wearing that original dress was wonderful and it liiked beautiful, but it looked like a costume, like I was dressing up for Halloween.
But when I tried this dress, that I originally did not care for in the photos or on the hanger...
well it was a f-ing Cindarella moment, first of all, the dress fit beautifully, seriously the only thing I am going to need altered is the hem.
The line of the dress has a very slight Asian feel...it's subtle, but it makes me feel like old Hollywood glamor and less of a fairy princess....and most importantly it seems very wearable.
My friend Diana made a great point, that first beautiful dress was also amazing, but my figure was lost in it, drowning in layers and layers of fabric...which I think it what I wanted it for....but this new dress, well you see my figure in it, which is good, right?
(low self esteem creeping in)
It comes with a little caplet/shawl and I went for the old Hollywood gloves.
now.....I need to get back there ASAP for the alterations appointment which means I need shoes and all my under dress wear...pronto!
so there you have it.
After trying on a ton of dresses we decided to have a late dinner and some wine, so this morning I am sleepy, and cold....
even though I am sleepy and cold I have to resist all urges to run in the other room and put on the dress...and sit here, and read blogs...
I think I am going to want to do this every day until the wedding.
