I had grand plans of blogs this week... but I worked almost 12 hours yesterday (by my own damn choice) and today I have to travel to Indy for work. Can you sense the yawns through the computer?
Anyways, I never knew how long it took to put together a shopping/outfit post until I did one. And let me just say that I'm in a time crunch but I'm curious for honest opinions... pretty please?
Ok, so @theratpack07 reminded me a week or so ago that I needed white cocktail dresses for the inevitable "year leading up to the wedding" stuff. And I was 2 steps ahead of her but totally agreed. Enter an awesome LOFT sale last week.
I ordered 2 sizes in each dress... although it's become clear to me that "vanity" sizing doesn't even come close to describing the LOFT size skew.
PS. Please don't judge the wrinkles. I ACTUALLY STEAMED THE WRINKLY ONE... they were just mangled from their mail travels. I believe it can be remedied. Also, the shoes are the shoes I'm wearing to work in 15 minutes. So judge away, whatever. I know they don't necessarily work.
First off, the bigger size white dress. Small-ish waist belt didn't much help the situation.
In theory, I like. In actuality... meh?
So I sized down. Left, unbelted. Center, added a thicker belt. Right, it's a weeee bit slim on the old thighs. Maybe they'll be smaller next year? (Hahahahahahahaha omg just died laughing.)
So the white dress(es) above... it's probably not built for my shape. But it's white and very bachelorette party/bridal shower/etc. I'm guessing I'll need 2-3 for events next year. Hopefully in the summer cause omg the pale. This 5 am photo shoot hides the paleness cause of the indoor lighting and darkness.
And then we have the 2nd dress. It's an antique-white/peach color. Can't really be describes. The fabric has a beautiful silver metallic all through it, which really lends itself to awesome accessories.
Not sure that photo helps at all. I tried!
And the dress. Without a belt (and the included one is hideous), it's a sad sack (LEFT). Center and right, a little more details and with the necessitated belt. Featuring the Ring That Made This All Possible.
So, be good internet friends and tell me how awesome and ugly the dresess are. BE HONEST.
Hopefully heading with the BFFs tomorrow to Indy for a full day of shopping and decompressing. Good vibes for all of us please? We are all very well but anxious for some stuff going down tomorrow.
Thanks for the opinions and finger-crossing for good news.
HAPPY MONDAY! xx
