To break with tradition here on ye olde blog, I will make this post All About Me and announce that I am getting hitched. In about two and a half months.
So far I have no dress and no caterer. But I do have a wondrous wedding planner, a phenomenal photographer, a stellar stationier,a fabulous florist,a vivacious venue, a glorious groom... (and sorry, maybe a wee bit too much wine).
So I am having this dress dilemma. I went to NYC last week and pounded the pavement. The above right image (Lucky magazine, about a year ago) is *totally* what I want. It's like something you would see Kate Hudson or Keri Russell rock oout, right? But I guess "hippie meets 40's" isn't in this season. So can I find someone to make it in my time frame-? I see a drapey bodice and slinky bottom. Then I thought-why not buy two seperate pieces and I might actually wear them again? Hence, the Anthropologie catalog image, above right. (how fierce is her hair, by the way?) I have been burned before by Anthro catalogs-a dream in print, a disaster IRL. And finding a skirt to match color wise; hmmmm.
Any stylist wannabes out there wanna take a crack at this? Not digging on strapless, or "encore wedding" suits (WTF with the idea that there is a certain costume for second weddings?)
This is a rustic, groovy backyard wedding. I want something flowy and ethereal, but still just a little sexy.
Seriously, if someone can solve this, you got a gratis makeup session or two coming your way; I am desperate.
