So, I made a rookie wedding-planning mistake a couple weeks ago. I made an appointment for engagement pictures... and I have more than a month to obsess over the details.
You see, I have since ordered at least 15 dresses and no less than 5 pairs of shoes. I'm looking for the "perfect look". And don't even get me started with Mr. RH.
My goal is to have 3 looks that I LOVE for myself... and then I'll work on coordinating for him.
I was literally planning on hanging my outfits in his closet and spending some time there just really pondering his wardrobe and any new pieces we need to add.
Yes, it's ok to roll your eyes so hard it hurts.
So I snapped up some dresses at, of all places, Kohls last week online.... and I'll let you all be the judge.
This first dress is the one that got it started. It had ruching along the side, a fun pattern, seemed long enough... win win win.
Except... see the last picture. Is it just me, or is the neckline crooked and the hem going downhill?? Weird.
Also, where did my boobs go?! (Side note: I think I need to go find Victoria's Secret this weekend. In the form of gel or padding. WHERE DID THEY GO?!)
I thought the next two dresses were the same dress in a a print that was slightly-less-loud... but it turns out they were more of a sack-dress and had no waistline, which really doesn't work for my shape. I added my trusty belt to mixed results...
And then again in blue. With the addition of the back pic to let you see what I'm working with in the belt situation.
Part of the problem is that the belt is probably too small... and then the other is that the dress just seems to be not my style.
I love this next chevron dress... but then again - chevron is over-staying its' welcome, and the dress is too big. Again, where did my girls go?!
And I would be remiss in life if I didn't say I wasn't searching for my Perfect Blue color everywhere... and I think I found it.
Too bad that ruffle was quite so large, otherwise I thought this number was quite fetching.
And then these last two sets weren't really for engagement pics at all, they were more for 'live-in' summer dresses...
Again, the top on these two was huge on me... you can really see the folds swimming on the pink dress.
And this last one wasn't much to write home about, but super comfortable.
So if you need me, I'll just be returning everything I've ever purchased and scouring all ends of the internet for a semi-dressy hot dress for engagement photos. In a month.
I'm not sure I'll survive until then.
Poor Mr. RH.
