going to the chapel

I'm in love.

No, not with a boy.

With a dress.

vintage wedding dress

I accidentally thrifted this gem last night (was looking for books, not clothes...go figure). It's so 60's Jackie O', faux fitted skirt with huge train, and the most stunning golden embroidery. The neck detail kills me.

What kills me more is that it's made for someone around 5' tall (maybe 5'2" if you wore flats) and with a 24" waist. Child bride?

I hope to share more once I do a few repairs and press it.

Oh, and my dream dress? All cotton...slightly off-white delicate swiss dot, and a collection of vintage lace I've been gathering in my life's travels.

OMG! You found that dress at a thrift store?! *swoon* Sad thing, my sil could totally wear it. Every time I see her I want to sit on her & feed her a cheeseburger & milkshake O.o

And I <3 the dress in the bottom pic.

Gorgeous dress! My mom is 4'9". When she got married at 19 she weighed 85 pounds! I really can't imagine it, but my mom could have worn this. I'm a moose however at 5'3" Big feet, big boobs and apple shaped. I could have worn this at 12 maybe? LOL
