My dress saga has been long (although I’m sure there are many people whose sagas are longer, it felt long to me) and is still unresolved. However, a post on My Hands Made It has gotten me excited about dresses again. Really excited.
Grace Kelly in To Catch a Thief. Look at it! LOOK AT IT! Flowy and lovely and interesting up top and ethereal down below and I want it.
I love it! The closest things I can think of off the top of my head that are anywhere near my price range are the Taryn and Whitney dresses from J Crew, but they lack the structure and sophistication of the Grace Kelly dress. The hunt is on.
In other news, J Crew has a few new dresses in their wedding section, possibly in anticipation of the opening of their NYC wedding boutique, and have apparently crossed the fancypants threshold with a 3500 dollar dress. Which is lovely. But 3500 dollars. If I were going to spend that much, I’d probably go somewhere besides J Crew, especially with the mixed reviews of their bridal line that I’ve read online, but that’s just me.
