found this drawing somewhere (no idea where) and realized that it looks an awful lot like my dress. same straps, nearly the same cut, similar details... love it.
fyi, my dress is an older one that I've had since my, *cough* er, um... debutate ball.
eeeeeeek! biz who are you? we thought we knew you?
believe me, I know what you're thinking, but it's a family tradition and a southern thing or something, so don't hold it against me.
the good news is that I'm re-wearing the debutante dress for the wedding, because it's really the most simple, classic, lovely thing i've ever worn and there was no way i'd find anything i like more. PLUS it just makes sense.
