The other day I was perusing the internet looking for inspiration, and I came across this dress at White House | Black Market:
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 :
I know, I know. You’re impressed by my mad drawing skills. That aside, it got me this wonderful dress:
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.
