Bow on the Butt

Only 22 short days until I will be boarding a plane to cross over the Atlantic and spend 2 glorious weeks in Europe. I mentioned previously that my photographer Mom is planning on doing a "bridal" shoot with me while I am over there. Although I am not engaged, I love wedding dresses (and don't feel self-concious getting into a wedding gown like some girls would) and she can't pass up the opportunity of shooting a bride with the coliseum in the background. So we have the photographer, and the model, all we have left to find is a dress.

Hello eBay!

This vintageous find was less than $40 with shipping. It's waiting for me at the post office right now. I can't wait to wake up tomorrow morning and pick it up. It could be hideous, or it could be fabulous. I am a little nervous about the size, I am guessing it is going to be a size too small for me. I think I might go pick up one of those Spanx slips I have seen with the Spanx I already have. Overboard you say? I think not. It's finals week, a time to indulge in carbs, carbs, and more carbs.



I should have pictures up tomorrow. You've seen what I look like in some other dresses. Any predictions?

FUN! I can't wait to see how it all turns out. I love Italy it is the greatest place on earth. I also love and HATE Spanx. Love the way they make me look, hate the way they make me feel. wore the power panties to the wedding I shot this weekend-big mistake! Painful mistake! They are not meant to be worn for 12 hours (maybe if you are the bride). Enjoy your trip!

millie-Can't wait to see you back, some of the Millie gowns are so gorgeous.

style-ish-I am kind of obessed with the pearl buttons. Well with all buttons down the back generally.

onelove-Spanx are not meant to be worn long term. Whenever I wear them for a long time I love taking them off again. Being comfortable while you photograph is must I would think.
