As a former beauty queen, I have an affinity for evening wear. Really, it’s more of an obsession. So when SK, a former co-worker, announced that she had just purchased her wedding dress without my consultation, I was a little hurt. When she told me she’d purchased the dress from the J.Crew website, I was practically apoplectic.
Until I saw the dress.
For less than $900, SK purchased a chiffon and organza gown that literally stopped me in my tracks. The dress is vaguely reminiscent of my all time favorite gown, the Reem Acra that Olivia Wilde wore to the 2008 Emmy’s. I love this dress so much that I’m tempted to buy it for myself, dye it red and wear it to the 2012 inauguration. It’s just that fabulous.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to clean the drool off of my keyboard.
