April 6, 2013 - Black is the new White

If pink is the new black and black is the new white, then pink is the new white. Yet, you say your best friend wore light rose previously. Concrete evidence that something is messing with our time line.

Back when me and J were courting and considering a potential future marriage (though also considering not subscribing to a bourgeois patriarchal institution) I was going to wear black.

My Mom wore a magenta dress when she married my stepdad. She was definitely the focus of attention!

And crushed velvet to boot!

Your stepdad looks like he's fully capable of coping with a red velvet wearer.

I like the last one best too. First one is second on my list. The fourth one would do in a pinch. The other two: no.

I wore a black dress. Yes, a ballgown/wedding dress type dress. 19 years ago. Jus' sayin'.

Yeah, crushed velvet. They were very hip considering this was central Ohio in 1973. My Dad was the most capable man I've ever known.

The model in the third picture from the top is the Direct TV Genie.

I made myself a dress of scarlet silk and lace for our wedding, and bought a kid leather custom made corset to wear over it (to reduce my size by 15cm). Aside from the fact that I am no longer as svelte as I was in my 20s and 30s, I am also incredibly unphotogenic, and that's not just my opinion - photographers often comment on it, sometimes with astonishment as they look at the photo they've just taken. So... I looked like a tomato with heels. My sweetie husband photoshopped our wedding photos to make me look slightly less pudgy. That's one more reason why I love him!

Interesting that so many are taken by the last dress . . . is it because it is so destructured . . . or because of the color blend.
Or because she is headless and so we are free from the comparison of having to look like this lady to wear this dress?
Maybe it's because it would work for every shape of bride?
Or because it could be worn elsewhere afterward?
