***Champagne***

Have you seen the current issue of Martha? I was flipping through it - yeah, I know I'm not planning anymore, it's just a habit! - and saw this great dress feature. I love every dress in it, but especially noticed that it includes the Vineyard dress we liked:



And this beauty, which made me think of you:

Okay I picked it up a couple weeks ago and how is that you listed the EXACT dresses that caught my eye?! I think we're sisters from another mother.
I'm planning a trip to visit FI's sisters in Chicago and do some dress shopping. Apart from the one you helped me with before the Martha ones are on the list. I don't know what it is but I do like sleeves.

not my style but those are beautiful, that would make a real statement and you would be so different which is what I really like about them. Good luck

I was too captivated by those dresses in Martha's!

When I was looking for a dress, I seriously considered this dress by David Meister but in white.

smilkova, do you know where to buy that dress? I really like it but couldn't find it at saks or neimans
I'll let you guys know if I find anything, this trip keeps getting rescheduled because something keeps popping up!

I've seen it on ebay and in fact I think the red one is selling on ebay right now. I am not sure about the white one though. I am sorry!

Did you see this new one, Champ? Not sleeved, but different and beautiful...





Oh, how I love me the Amsale!

Hi ladies,


Aching, I really liked this one shoulder dress awhile ago, was it Monique Lhuillier? No I think Reem Acra... but I wonder if I'll look back at photos and ask myself what I was thinking with the one shoulder look! Perhaps too dated?





Oh silkova, that is a cute dress, it looks so comfy too honestly! I wish JCrew offered more color variations since I have to get something white to go with FI's uniform, lest my dress look dirty... but thanks for keeping an eye out for me, it means a lot to me!


I think I just need something with detail on the shoulders, not strapless, because much to my chagrin I have broader shoulders which makes for good swimming but terrible strapless dress wearing!

It's true - anytime you do something distinctive and different with a wedding dress, like the one-shoulder thing, you run the risk of it being regrettable later...and yet, TOO classic can be too boring!

Have you checked out www.thefrock.com? Their bridal section has an interesting collection of vintage designer gowns.

Oops...sorry--just looking through the gowns and I'm not seeing a ton in crisp white...maybe not the most useful rec. Sorry!

hey chowbaby! Thanks for the suggestion though, you never know when something may come up and I had never heard of that site! They have amazing dresses, who cares about a wedding I'm always looking for new places for gowns! Ugh speaking of which I tried on the most amazing vintage Oscar de la Renta a couple weeks ago, it was cream with black lace details... I seriously thought to myself who cares about the wedding I need an excuse to wear this dress... sadly it wasn't meant to be, a little too small.

Anyone who was admiring the Reem Acra bluebell dress should look at this one!

Fun :) I've been digging into some fantastic crafting/knitting/sewing blogs recently and I found the link to the Frock through this site--there's a TON of links to other dress sites (many vintage)--enjoy!
