HAPPY MONDAY, LOVELIES! I’m spending much of today getting my Bridal Market on, but you didn’t think I was gonna go without posting on this finest of fine Mondays, did you? Because that would be ridic. Obvs. I’m all up in it today runway-wise, and probably spending much too much time walking around my beloved nyc in the highest of heels. The heel thing happens approximately 14 times a year – it also excites the honeyboy, so I’m sure when he reads this he’ll a) get pretty psyched about this fact, and look forward to when we get home tonight *wink wink nudge nudge* and b) LOOOVE that I’m talking to the public about our impending romp.
Anyway, I’ve been dying to bring something to your faces today, so here it is, in a tidy little afternoon (if you’re east coast) post nugget! And of course by *tidy* and *little* I mean an extremely lengthy fashion-focused post that I spent forever to assemble, as per usual. (Because when have I ever posted a quickie?)
… BUT FIRST …
Nameless McPuppyPants met Boots this weekend. Boots is the toy puppy my honey bought me like 2 years ago, as a stand-in for the real thing. Anywho, we’ve been very excited for this moment…
and, with fingers crossed, our dream came true…
They got along famously! And, after some playtime, it was naptime for these brand new BFFs. (Have we created a sort of imaginary friend for our little puppelah? Good? Bad? Impactless?)
… one more thing on the puppy front: no, McPuppyPants is not his name. It’s just another made up moniker that allows me to blog about our still nameless puppy. Siiiiigh.
Ok, SO. Rhi and Andy’s wedding blew our minds with beauty last week, and prompted me to launch a little Twitter poll re: wearing two dresses on your wedding day. Ready for the results? Turns out you guys are quite mixed on the concept, but the vast majority of you (who are on Twitter and saw the poll at least) feel that a second dress for the wedding reception, if that’s what the bride would like, is a fantastic and very practical idea. Specifically if it’s a short frock, and you plan to rip up the dance floor with your fresh skillz.
Now, you may remember Rhi rocked an elegant second dress on her wedding day. In fact I have no doubt you’ll remember, since it caused quite a stir on Twitter…
So, I thought I’d offer you guys another installment of my favorite little white numbers, should you decide you wanna do a wardrobe change on your Big Day. The picks below run the gamut from elegant to playful to vintage to mod, and so on, and so on, and so on! Hope you love, lovers.
I have a big smile on my face about this post… ok, here we go…
If you want sleeves, and you want sexy…
↑ I die for that back.
Here’s a little sleeved number that’ll surely get your rocks off. I’m pretty turned on by it, myself, actually.
Now, is casual the name of the game? And do you plan to work up a sweat on the dance floor? Then the ASOS Sweetheart Sundress below is IT. (It’s cotton, it’s casual, it’s perfect. And you can wear it to the beach on your honeymoon!)
Do you die for sequins, serious detailing, and pretty much anything pointelle?
French Connection Lace Embellished Pencil Dress is probably the dress for you. Just WAIT ’til you see the detailing up close…
↓ AAAHHHHH! Right?
Something about this work of art below is giving me palpitations.
Below is a very hip, very simple look that caught my eye…
This next look just makes me scream. It’s fabulously elegant, sexy but appropriate, and it’s one of the few *beaded-front/plain-back* frocks that don’t completely piss me off. I usually hate it when they don’t bead up the flip-side, but I actually prefer the unique, plain back of the number.
↑ Do you die? Because I’m already dead.
Gosh I love these dress posts. Any favorites? Did this make your Monday the teensiest bit more bearable? I hope it did. Did you know that “teensiest” is an accepted word in WordPress? … But that “WordPress” isn’t? Go figure :)
On another note, what do YOU think of wearing a second dress on your wedding day?
Are you a one-fabulous-frock kind of person, or do you dig the two dress concept?
P.S. – I saw “Love and Other Drugs” this weekend. Unexpectedly loved it. Release the hate, if you feel the need.
