Fashion Show!

I just had a little living room fashion show.

THAT is what online shopping of close to $1,500 worth of jcrew bridesmaids dresses will do for you! Yay!

My very best friend in the whole wide world is getting married in September and all her bridemaids get to pick our OWN dress - as long as it's JCrew and all the same material and black. heh.

Regardless, I got to do some online ordering (JCrews here don't have the wedding stuff) and got to feel all purty and girlie. Wow. Some high heels and dress wearing all in the same day! I better be careful or I'll lose my punk rockness.

I need to get a smaller size cause I ordered 2 sizes too big and I need it only 1 size too big. Thank goodness this isn't my first time around on this roller coaster or I'd have no idea what to do.

And the winner is ... (in black - NOT pink!!!)



oh - and this is post #420. My "college me" would be pissed if I didn't at least SAY something.

adorable! Congrats on #420... I still pause for a moment on april 20th for the same reason. So silly!

Is the dress pink too? You just need some black heels & funky jewelry to keep it punk rock- it's going girly & pink now so I here... ;o)

That dress is going to look fantastic! I love the dress. Are you getting it in that color. the girly side of me loves the pink!

Io said...

Lol - post #420.
I love the color of the dress. It's so perfectly pink, right between girly and grrr.

J. Crew has wedding attire? Weird. I actually really love that dress. It looks like the kind of thing that would be really, really short on me...but on someone of a regular height I'm sure it'll look great.

I'm 5'8", and it looks fine on me!

I really like the JCrew bridesmaids' dresses and think that the one you picked is great!

Jewels said...

420 (lol) Rock On Dude!

Amber said...

Huge fan of all things JCrew here. Mostly because I love clothes but hate shopping. So I just order on-line cuz I'm all kinds of lazy. Cute choice! The dress is just the canvas. Accessories, hair, shoes, make-up, tats... make it you.

Cute! Not to be a downer or anything but my girlfriend had jcrew bridesmaid dresses and i was pregnant. even though it was empire i would still have had to get major alterations done--it's not like they have any stretch to them in the bust area. Also, with how much your body changes during pregnancy it's hard to get it altered and still fit good. Something to think about, but I really hope the dress works for you.

LOL - 4:20 is the universal time!!

The dress is gorgeous dahling! In black, it will be fabulous! (I agree, pink could be a wee bit too girly for ya, but black? black is goooooooooooooooooooood!)

And the 420 comment got a genuine stoner chuckle outta me. Aaaah, the days of "puff puff pass, BITCH!", I miss 'em so (sometimes).

Happy 420!! I miss the college me sometimes.

"420, man. fo-twen-teeee." We kept running into the 420 man everywhere we went when we were in Belize. 420.

I am insanely envious of your cool black dress that might actually be appropriate to wear in non-wedding situations.
