Wedding Dress Dreams

I wore this recently to go wedding dress shopping with a friend – of course as soon as I got into the store I just wanted to try on wedding gowns but I’ve convinced myself that that’s pretty normal and not at all desperate or strange…right?







dress: H&M / cardigan: Old Navy / wedges: DSW / bag: can’t remember, I think a street vendor in London / stockings: We Love Colors

I snapped a ton of photos yesterday of my day trip to NYC to see the McQueen exhibit (which was insane; I never appreciated the great degree of historicism in his collections so much and I'm a historicist (obviously) at heart) so watch for those soon!

you look so pretty in this outfit, and i really like the backdrop. there's nothing weird about you wanting to try on dresses since you already had a wedding. i would do the same thing just to see what other dresses look like on me and to remind me of that special day.

adoring your dress and cardigan, you have some really cute cardigans .... the stockins are a great idea and a very cute one too.

Nah. Wedding dresses are just fancy gowns so if you like trying on dresses, why wouldn't you like trying them on?!

Love the pop of teal!!
That's not insane at all. I saw THE most gorgeous wedding dress last weekend and asked my hubby for a divorce so we could get remarried and wear it. Now that's insane.... :)

Soooo excited to see the McQeen pics, I bet it was fabulous in person!

Sometimes I wish I could try on wedding dresses, and I'm already married. You're totally normal!

Kristin said...

That's totally normal! It's so unfair that we only get to wear a wedding dress once!

LyddieGal said...

Of course its normal! Who wouldn't want to try on wedding gowns? they are so pretty, so extravagant, and bring up all those warm wonderful feelings about love and vows and... yeah, I might even be crying a little just thinking about it.

someday, i hope to try one on for real.

Chic on the Cheap

Very normal. I've been married a while but would love to slip into say... Kate M's dress to see how it looks!!

Claire said...

i'm loving your use of knee high socks! love their pop of color.

i too would want to try on wedding dresses if i walked into one of those bridal shops. totally natural reaction. it's like being a little girl and wanting to be a princess. i think. something like that :)

Gorgeous outfit, loving the teal socks :)

I'm pretty much as far from wedding dress shopping as one could possibly be, and I still want to try them on. They're just so perfect and beautiful, kinda makes me want to cry.
