i found a dress!

it was the very 1st dress i saw in the very 1st shop we went in... we did some more shopping around after i spotted it, but we came back to it... it's the one... and we ordered it... :) yay!

i'll describe it here... i originally wrote this in an e-mail to lisa, but i don't feel like typing it all over again, so i'll just copy it.....

my mom and i went yesterday to a place and the very 1st one we pulled from the rack... i loved it... but we made no commitments... today we went to another place and found nothing... so, then we went back to the 1st place... and that's the dress... i know it is... it's the best i've seen in catalogs and in stores and anywhere... i love it... so, the lady there took my measurements and all... and... it's ordered! yay!!!!!! so now i can NOT gain any more weight! but i can still try to lose... :)

ok, i looked everywhere online to get a pic of it to send you, but i can't find it ANYWHERE... the designers site sucks... they have no pics of any dresses... and the designer's not on the knot... so, ARG! i found one dress that... isn't like the dress i got... but the top it close...

the actual picture i sent you... the top is close... in that the very top is sheer and the sheer runs down on the 3/4 length sleeves... the sheer ends as soon as the fabric begins... but the appliques run a little bit beyond and under the sheer... the sheer also has some pearl beads, but not too many... just enough... very pretty...

it's an A-line skirt... it's got some fullness to it, but not too much...

there is some more applique at the bottom of the skirt... it's in a line with some more pearl bead-work, but again... just some...

it sort of has a 50s feel to it... it doesn't look exactly like a 50 wedding dress, but it gives you, like... the idea of a 50s style dress... the top does, anyway........

it's not pure white, either... it's called ivory, but it looks lighter than ivory to me... but i liked it better than pure white... i thought it looked really... classy... :) i coulda gotten it in white though....... and the fabric is satin... it's not a shiny satin, though... it's like... matte...

and the train is chapel length... not very long........

and, that's about all i know to tell you... :)

i'm also including a VERY crude drawing of my own... :)
