A second (third?) dress…?

Posted on June 10, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Argh.  You might recall that I bought two wedding dresses and way back when, y’all helped me decide which one to wear to our wedding.  It was perfect.  I loved, loved, loved it, and was secretly looking forward to wearing it again at our hometown reception.  I mean, who doesn’t want a second shot at wearing a dress that makes their waist look tiny, tush look proportionate, and keeps the boobage under control? Plus, the bustle swished around my legs like frothy water.  I felt like Ursula the Sea Witch, but in a good way.

Happy sigh.

However, our hometown reception is in Southern New Mexico near the height of summer — July 4th weekend.  Aside from the fact that my beloved dress is way too much for a casual reception, it’ll be WAY too hot to trudge around in it for a whole evening.

I have to find another dress.  You all gave Miss Mary Jane such great suggestions that I thought I’d ask you for help as well.  Here’s the catch: I’m short (5 foot) and busty (30F), and our reception is in about three weeks.  I’d love something as equally sassy as my wedding dress.  A short dress would be nice and cool, but (much like a six year old) my legs are perpetually covered in bug bites and scratches, so maybe a long dress would be better.

Ooh, and if I could wear one of my mom’s boleros with it, even better!

I’m not even sure it has to be white, or short, or formal.  Heck, I have no idea!  What do you think?  Got any ideas?

    I’ve been there, done that, got the t-shirt (and divorce papers) to prove it. Here I am again, pledging my life to my (new) love with eyes wide open (and heart racing) knowing full well how emotionally traumatic this can end… and doing it anyway.
