Not so much these but they are really cute!
This smelled FANTASTIC and it was really cute:
I didn't technically see this but isn't it great?
Liberty of London has launched a line with Target and it is just pure happiness. Honestly, I was in a good mood just from all of the cute prints plastered everywhere. I even had an extended conversation about the prints with the lady in front of me in the check out line. We shared our admiration of the colors and shapes. I recommend a trip to see all the cute stuff before it sells out.
Something that didn't make me as happy was the experience of wedding dress shopping last night. I think there were a couple of factors that made it less than ideal. Prepare yourself for the list:
- I have been sewing since I was a kid. I have been consistently making costumes since 2003 so I have an idea of how clothes go together. As a consequence, I have a hard time looking at a dress because all I can see now is ALTERATIONS! I tried on a really pretty dress last night but all I could focus on was the fact that in order to fix the shoulder seams, the sleeves would have to be completely taken out and reset. Plus the hem could be a nightmare if I want to get rid of the train.
- Pushy saleswomen. I know it is your job but if I say, "I don't want a dress with a poofy skirt" or "I really hate trains" that doesn't mean my secret ambition is to wear a dress with a gigantic skirt and a massive train. I don't want to look like a mushroom or one of those cakes where the cake is a skirt and there is a Barbie shoved in the middle.
- Polyester. I'm getting married in August, I don't want to suffocate in synthetic fabrics.
- Beading. I really don't like a lot of beading. Or any for that matter. It's not my favorite.
- What do I like? Well, this dress, with short sleeves, made out of silk dupioni.
It's an option but we are going to go shopping on Saturday to try to find something. Does anyone know of a fantastic shop?
