My first thought when I found out my good friend George was getting married was how happy I was for him. My second thought was “What am I going to wear?” For some reason I feel that weddings, like Easter, deserve a new frock. Part of me wanted to be sensible though. I do have a few party dresses that would be quite nice for a wedding, it’s just that I’ve become obsessed with the color red this fall. After spending months reminding myself that I was going to be frugal and wear something I already owned, one week before the wedding my urge for a new dress took over and I made a mad dash to Loehmann’s to find something red for the happy event. This strapless chiffon number was the first one I found.
In the end I decided against wearing the dress. Although you can’t really tell in the photos, the top is actually a bit too big on me. Had I found it two weeks prior to the wedding I could have had it altered, but there wasn’t enough time. Then there’s the fact that my husband just hated it. I really don’t know why. He took the photos and I think they are just beautiful! The one above is my favorite. I love how pale my skin looks against the red of the dress. It seems to glow.
Have you ever felt the need to buy a new dress to attend a wedding, or is it just me?
