I love it when someone tweets me and twitter shows me exactly where they live. It’s really useful information to have if I’m in the mood for killing someone that day. Thank you, technology. (*she says with a serious face, illustrating intent*)
And if you think I’m kidding, I am as serious about this as these Kardashian faces are serious about being Kardashians AND THEY ARE SERIOUS. (FYI they are really very serious about it.)
Haha just kidding, I meant to say I’m THIS (<== click it) serious about it.
oooooo-KAAAYYYYYY. Moving. right. along. It’s Friday afternoon and DOY, Bridal Week happened, as you know, and to a couple of the shows the lovely Isabelle of Isabelle Selby Photography came with me, ably taking care of the exquisite-runway-photo-documentation side of things, while I took care of the drinking-I MEAN, the socializing-I MEAN, the networking and observing side of things. She’s all pictures, I’m all talk-WAIT. That doesn’t sound good at all. Here: I’m good at sitting in chairs and observing people walk down runways in attractive outfits. Ok not better, that was not better at all. Whatever I’mma just get to the photos right now.
Here’s parto numero uno of what we saw in the flesh. Please put on your goggles because your eyes are about to explode and honestly I don’t want your eye guts all over my blog, thank you very much.
The always lovely Elise (you might remember her from TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress at Kleinfeld; she’s a Pronovias vixen now) shared with us all of the dresses backstage, and here are the delicious, fluffy details Isabelle caught while we were all collectively gushing…
Lady in Red (not Teresa from Real Housewives– this lady’s from the news, though I can’t remember her name or her network, of course) was positively freaking over some of these dresses, and if you had been there as all of this was unfolding, you’d have been freaking out just the same. I was freaking out under Isabelle as she took this pic; in fact I’m a little shocked she was able to remain so steady to shoot these shots because my body was moving a lot with physical reaction.

oh we can’t get closer? oh, OK WELL THEN MORE OF IT FROM DIFFERENT ANGLES
these are just such fun dresses to watch flow down this runway aisle, y’all. I seriously wish you coulda been there.
Little story before I beg you for your feedback: yesterday afternoon someone tweeted the link to a ‘desert wedding’ post I wrote like forever ago and I clicked on it (of course) and when I scrolled down I saw it had one of my ‘A Day in the Life of Bambino‘seses, but it was a super-back-in-the-day Life of Bambino installment, so it was heavy on the random acts of violence he was so well known for during his puppydom. We hardly ever give him a stuffed toy anymore that isn’t disembody-proof because of how many stuffed animals have *gone to live on a farm* at his hand.
Ok here, I’ve got to share it, I just– how can I not at this point.
Yeah. So it just made me think about how a puppy could like, just start punching me in the face, or hold me up at gunpoint and I would still be like, awww how cute. What a cute puppy this is, he’s holding me up at gunpoint, awww. I wonder who taught him how to empty a magazine into someone’s skull, so cute.
Anyway, WHADDYA THINK? About anything, really. I just wanna hear your feedback, like, in general. The dresses are a good start. hey, do you like the fact that they were inspired by The Great Gatsby?
Oh and also, SEE? I’m super not-tan. Super not. And that’s ok! :)
