Just to prove I'm not kidding, here are the pics that some people requested of the dress I wore, and how I did my hair when I attended my friend's wedding this past weekend.
The hair - I made three sections on top, twisted each one and secured it with a teeny hair clip. Next, I curled the hell outta my hair, then used a circa 1991 banana clip to make a kind of ponytail.
This was the result.
And, the simple and "on sale!" black dress. Chiffon flounces at the shoulders, and chiffon flouncy, flarey inserts in the skirt.
After looking at this picture, I think I should have skipped the nylons and just left my legs bare. I also promise that I wasn't this "orange" looking in real life.
Really... more pics to come... right now though, I have to wrangle the little clowns into bed. That should only take an hour or so... heh...
