Mesh sleeves and the thigh slit!! Thank you all for voting. You royally screwed with my head this week, making me only able to think of sequins, teal silk, and the Angelina leg pose. The Badgley Mischka meshing around gown received the most votes, after consulting with my hair stylist, Jeff, and you, my dear blog readers.
When weighing all the factors of color, time of the wedding, comfort, and rental price, this one was the best choice. But I still long to wear gold sequins so I think I'm going to make Jeff take us somewhere fancy every year for our anniversary so I can dress up like it's prom again. So stay tuned for the gold sequins because HELL YES they're coming.
Until then, for Joe and Heidi's wedding, I'll be meshing around in this gown and THESE HEELS!!!
Gorgeous, right? I had to get them. I think I'm obsessed with B.M. now. I never would have thought. These are perfect, in many respects. One, the height will be great with the dress, the slit, and my 6' tall husband standing next to me. Two, the platform makes the height tolerable. Three, the feathers. C'mon. So cute. Those damn Siameezers better stay away from them. And four, the color! They will be perfect with this dress (and duh, of course I'm going to make Jeff's tie match my shoes), and even MORE perfect for Matthew and Kelly's wedding! She's weaving a lot of that peacock blue/teal into their wedding, and her girls are all wearing that color, but since I'm on Matthew's side, we're wearing gray. I have a cute little grey silk J. Crew number I'll be gussied up in but these heels will coordinate me nicely with the ladies I think. Kelly?? Stamp of approval?
Lynne is so graciously going to come over for the pre-wedding events, to watch Elsa and take a ton of pictures of us all pretty, so I'll be posting those soon after. Glamour shots!!
