project: the dress !

i bought a dress three weeks ago while my mom was in town. we stumbled upon this place during a 25% off sale.

and so, my wedding gown:

it's a bit hard to tell from the pictures, but the dress is ivory, fitted on top, and covered with strips of a slightly darker ivory lace all along the bottom. it has a very small train, and it is super swishy. from what i can tell online it is from the spring 2005 collection, and called "tattered tulle."

i had never heard of elizabeth fillmore before that day (my bridal gown designer knowledge in slim) but after some googling i found that her dresses are not only beautiful and unique, but she has a lot of dresses in darker ivory, dusty rose and champagne! i had to stop looking because i was finding too many dresses that were calling out to me. like these:

i would love to see this last dress in a real wedding. i love it!

it's been hard not to wear my dress now that it is hanging over the closet door (it doesn't fit in our overstuffed only-storage-in-the-house bedroom closet)
. next order of business: shoes! wonderful, glorious shoes.


  1. Your dress is FABULOUS!!! I just love it, and to get a discount too. Meant to be.

  2. I wish you would wear these-,B001F7AIUY,B0014JQYI8,B00153DPB2,B0012XT3MA,B000XZT9LI,B0015UEDPW,B0015T0XSY,B0016OTM3U,B001BFLFIE,B001BCOZMU,B001BFLFQ6,B001B4UNCO,B0016OTMJY,B000YI3E0Q,B0016PBA52,B001BCP10K,B001HN6SKA,B001ELJGFE,B000Q8UWYU,B001ELKJC8,B000OHC9DK,B001AB5D1E,B0016198BY,B0018CHVCE,B0018CHVK6,B00171SOIG,B001F7AIWC,B000UK4TT8,B000PDW9K6,B0015Z4Z6E,B000SR27BU,B000Y03170,B000Y0ARJA,B0013L5KZ0,B001ELJHNA,B00171KSB2,B00171MMCK,B00171OED0,B00171OGW4,B000YE0FNY,B00155ARNO,B0011ZU4O0,B000YMP23E,B000YMQTEA,B0017PEADA,B00106AOYK,B001A35NFS,B001HN6SRS,B001A33HQK,B0018DMR0E,B0013YS2HA,B0018DQALG,B0016OTKZK,B00196491K,B0018DQB42,B000Z9S45O,B000XOM5ZQ,B000Z9OWZ0,B000Z9OX86,B000XOO9MS,B00142I852,B0012WCS14,B0011MYEJY,B0011N1RRA,B0013CMYDA,B000YMH35O,B0013CMYJO,B0013CMY3K,B000N30U0O,B000YMIFDS,B000N2ZP3W,B0014TTW78,B0014TQHBW,B0018DP7OW,B000OHATHI,B000UJY4RQ,B000XOJCTS,B0011NAHYE,B000N2ZOR4,B0017Q2ON2,B001348DU6,B0013FIS9Q,B000YMFCE8,B0013COZ8M,B0013CN2LS,B000N5X4LE,B000THL1U2,B001L1QSYE,B000THD696,B001L1QSE4,B001L1QT5M,B001L1QSOE,B001ELJHFI,B0013TO4JU,B001H0F75U,B001H0F8BI,B001H0F7KA,B001GS87Z0,B001H0F7ZA&asinTitle=Coloriffics%20Women%27s%20Gala%20Pump&contextTitle=Search%20Results&page=4&prepickColor=1&size=100&dept=242321011&node=242321011&nodes=242330011&sort=price
