The whole family except for me is in BILs wedding on October 2. DH is the best man, DD is the flower girl, and DS is the ring bearer. We have to fly to OH, stay in a hotel, rent a car - basically, spend lots of money. Money that we don't necessarily have.
In the midst of our move, I came across a dress that I forgot I even had. I'd worn it to do a reading in a friend's wedding in 2002-2003ish. As soon as I saw it, I realized how much I still like it and how much I want to wear it to the wedding in October. Especially since that's money I don't need to spend on a dress.
Bad news is it's an 18W, and I'm wearing 22/24W right now.
Good news is it zips, and I can breathe.
Bad news is I look REAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLY hippy in it.
Good news is I have just over two months to make it look good.
Can I do it?
These were taken two weeks ago...minus any supportive undergarments, if you get my drift...The pics don't really do it justice. It's got this drapey neckline and kind of hugs the curves without being tight (when you're not too fat for it, that is). The fabric is black with these gorgeous kind of shiney maroonish roses on it.
(Excuse the hideous hair, please.)
And since I'm posting pics, here are a few of my cuties I took today.
