fashion : weddings!!!

It's officially wedding season. Now normally, this means nothing to me except perhaps a custom order coming in on my shop or seeing extra blogs/articles about weddings. But this year, I feel like it's the year of the Wedding. We have 3 weddings in June - Joey is in all 3 of them either as a groomsmen or officiating; and 1 wedding in July - where fortunately we are just attending. 2 of the weddings in June are evening, classy, elegant-styled weddings. And because I've never owned a little black dress, that's what I'm looking for right now. I'm hoping I can find a great dress to wear to both weddings. And because it's summer and I'm feeling spunky, I'm actually thinking of a one-shoulder little black dress with gold accents.

Something like this look that I created over at polyvore:

So last night I was perousing the tri-dubs for the perfect dress, and I found this one on dillards.com. I love it! I love the one shoulder, the fact that it's fitted AND the fact that it's knee-length. (I'm tall, I don't need anything short. I want to keep it classy!) There's a couple of problems though. I would have to work hard to drop enough pounds and inches to fit into the dress. It's very possible, but I would have to be very focused and driven. Joey said that would be my motivation! Also, there's the fact that the dress is $150. Joey said that's okay, every woman deserves a little black dress. It was at this point that my jaw dropped and I just stared at him asking who he was and what he did with my husband. I then asked him if that mean I could get shoes and stuff too. He said of course, how often do I get to dress up all fancy like! ohemmgee. I don't know who this imposter is, but I like what he's saying... haha.

So... I'm thinking... and we'll see what I end up getting.

In related news I hit TWO weightloss milestones this week. I hit the losing 5 pounds mark again AND I have officially lost 5% of my original body weight by hitting my first goal! Now, my next goal is 10% of my original body weight. Gotta keep on keepin' on! Especially if I want that dress. ;)


  1. You ROCK! I loooooooooooove that dress and the accessories!! I need to do something like that. Oh dear. I could get in trouble...

  2. Well done!

    That put together outfit looks amazing : )

  3. I don't know how far you have to go to make your goal for this dress...but I say...you CAN DO IT!!! It's an adorable outfit and a great reward to look forward too! What a generous hubby! =)

  4. You'll look incredible! Be sure to share pictures of yourself in the outfit.

  5. I love wedding fashions. I always get so jealous when people come into work and tell me they're shopping for a dress for a wedding. I have only been to one. Every spring I get wedding fever!!
