Oh My

The other day I was perusing the internet looking for inspiration, and I came across this dress at White House | Black Market:

It's part of their wedding collection, though with only two dresses, it's hardly a collection.

Isn’t it gorgeous? Try to avoid looking at the model’s face – it totally looks like it was cut-and-pasted on there. Focus on the dress.

To be sure, I love my wedding dress, and it was perfect and exactly what I wanted. It was inspired by a designer gown I saw in a magazine (Reem Acra, 2007 Spring Collection, totally not anywhere on the internet anymore). Here are the sketches I sent :

Wasn't I nice to clearly label them?

In drawings, gravity has no meaning.

I know, I know. You’re impressed by my mad drawing skills. That aside, it got me this wonderful dress:

Those are Grant's chubby little legs there, when he was not yet one year old!

Wow - I had not noticed my hair before. Huh. I'm sure it looked fine in person.

Pretty true to my sketches, don’t you think? had to make it up! I got tons of compliments on it too (though when you’re the bride, you generally receive compliments all day long). Definitely not a dress I’d sell or part with. (Also, because of the design, I could lose or gain  20 pounds and it would still fit. Most brides cannot say that.)

That said, had I seen the first dress, I might have had other ideas. I mean, I’m not a huge fan of the bust part, but the skirt is fabulous. Maybe I would have hated it three years ago. Who knows.

I realize this was a completely random rambling, but I saw the picture and wanted to share it with someone, and who better than with my captive blog audience!

I’ll leave you with the picture again, to spur your imagination.

Lovely.
