Looking For A Nice Dress For A White Wedding
We've got a Spring wedding to attend at the end of the month - the ceremony in the Royal Botanic Gardens and the reception across the harbour on an island. An excuse to buy a dress, yes. But I hate shopping for things for specific occasions, with a deadline to meet. I can always trawl an existing-something from the wardrobe but I already have a picture of me, in my head, wearing a shiny modern take of a 1920s flapper dress.
How I got that picture, I don't know but this photo of Heimstone's Mustang Dress was sent to me by the Personal Shopper after I told her of my wardrobe woe. Lucky bitch just asked for one for her birthday and got it! This loose sister of the corset dress. Of course I clicked on the site right away but all's been sold. Found another one here but the price is not as generously slashed and it's hard paying for it when I know I could have bought it at a cheaper and cheerier figure. Sigh. Back to square one. I'm glad the happy couple has a wedding registry - save me madly shopping for another thing with a looming deadline.
