    So maybe I bought my dress too early...

    I bought a traditional gown this summer-- very pretty A-line dress with lace and all the trimmings.

    This is what it looked like when I tried it on:


    When it arrived in October, I wasn't loving it... it just wasn't ME. But I figured that since I had already bought it (and it made my FMIL cry when I tried it on), I'd work it out.

    Eventually I gave into my nagging fear and went looking again.

    I found a very cute dress with lace & sequins just like the one, except it was fitted. I had always wanted a fitted dress but had been afraid since I've got serious hips. See?


    I know the books & guides always steer curvy girls toward the A-line dresses but I know my hubby-to-be would love to see me in a dress that shows off the curves!

    This week I found a happy medium. Sparkle and sequins.... a much lighter fabric... a booty-hugging shape that doesn't make me look like I'm struggling for air.... A gorgeous dress on the clearance rack of a local family-owned bridal salon!



    Can't wait to get it fitted (the top part is too big) so I can see how beautiful it can be!

    I ended up posting the first dress for sale... Wish me luck!
