I woke up this morning knowing that I needed to wear this dress. Its been sitting in my closet for nearly a month, but I hadn't yet found an opportunity. Its so lovely, floaty, lady-like and elegant and today I felt the need for an injection of just those things (as well as an excuse to wear my new shoes:). I wish I could say that I wore it to a tea house or a matinee at one of the old movie houses here, but instead we took a short (one hour) road trip to an inexpensive theatre to see Wolverine. I have to say that it was so gloriously over the top that I found it enjoyable and giggled through many parts that seemed to me more of a parody of the action/comic book genre. My husband thought it was flat-out great. All together a nice way to spend the afternoon...sharing a bucket of popcorn with the one you love while watching a jacked-up, growling Hugh Jackman saying cheesy one liners while CGI explosions decorate the background:)
Anyway, back to the dress, the only problem is that it doesn't photograph particularly well. I had a hard time capturing the beauty of the white on cream embroidery and diaphanous nature of the fabric...so here are a few different attempts.
