So.... my Aunt's wedding is one week away. ONE WEEK! I can't believe it - it seems like we were just hearing about her engagement! Which was at Christmas! Over 6 months ago! Which means we're closer to the next Christmas than the last.....
Wow. I feel old. Especially with a milestone birthday coming up the day after the wedding.
Annnnnnnnnyway. Back to the point of this post: choosing a dress to wear for the wedding! It's a fairly casual event, but I still want to look nice. So here are my 2 options, both silk & extremely pretty.
Option #1: orange
pros: great colour, super comfortable & flattering
cons: already wore it to my brother's wedding, the only other recent wedding in our family, needs dry cleaning
Option #2: white, version 1
this is actually a skirt hiked up in an empire style
Option #2: white, version 2
for this one, I rolled the "waist" band once to make it a bit shorter & lowered the tie to my waist - this is my preferred version for option #2
pros: gorgeous pattern, haven't worn it often, comfortable
cons: needs a slip since it's see-through, need to figure out how to belt it (this is just an old brown tie that came with some pants), white at a wedding?
Here are the two, side by side:
What do you think? Which is your favourite?
And now, for the fun of it & since I see them all over the internet, some jumping pictures:
Haha! Taking photos of yourself is hard, taking photos of yourself jumping is nearly impossible! For most of the outtakes, my feet were on the ground... And, please notice that I was NOT wearing my heels for jumping!
By the way, what do you think of my photo setup? I only had to rearrange a few things (like rugs & the bird cage) & am rather pleased with how they turned out. The bunting is too cute! The glare from the window isn't the best though..
I like the orange dress! But I like The second version of the white dress even more!!!
Awesome pics and blog. Kisses!
That bunting is adorable! As for the dresses - they are both so awesome it is hard to chose! My vote goes for the white but it is tough call.
Love both dresses - but preference would be the Orange with flatter shoes...
Reminds me of a cocktail Tequila Sunrise...
I like the orange/red one the best : )
I like the white, but are you going to be adjusting while you are wearing? or once you put the belt on it will stay in place? is it comfortable?
I love the jumping photos! Great job!
Both are nice outfits, just remember watching someone tug at their strapless dress all night is not very appealing! :O)
You look great in both. The only thing I would change: THE SHOES!!
Go with something a bit more exciting!!
lol...love the jumping pictures! I like the orange / pink dress the most :)
I like the shite one, with the belt loser, but I like a lower hem. Needs some fancy hair do-dad to match the flowers and take away some whitness.
