In spite of my leaning towards white, the dress is lilac.
In spite of my wanting tea length, it is floor length.
In spite of my not wanting a train, it has one.
In spite of my intending to find something modest, it has a low back.
In spite of my not wanting to spend more than $300, it’s closer to $400.
I love this dress.
I didn’t want to take it off.
The only drawback to the dress is that it is apparently based on the dress worn by Kate Hudson in How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days (can’t find decent pictures of it… the best one is actually the movie poster). I’m enough of a snob to have almost not gotten it because of that. The lady at L’élite mentioned it, and I thought, “Well, then I guess I won’t be getting this one…” Then I looked in the mirror again.
I may not end up looking like a “bride” but I will be happy.
This morning we got news that Joe’s paperwork that we’d sent to Milan has been completed. This wedding just might end with a hitch!
