The Dress

By popular demand I decided to post all the pictures that I have (minus the one I would have to scan) of me in the infamous dress! It is hard to tell from pictures, but the dress has bright teal under a brown shear fabric. I love the effect it gives and the beading, which is along the bust and the handkerchief style bottom of the dress, is brown with purple and teal iridescent colors that change when the light shines on them. I do love this dress so much that I am going to replace the zipper (which is currently stuck half way down) and continue to wear it! See what I mean about having no pics of the dress in it's full glory!!!

This is the first time I wore the dress. I was 2 months pregnant with Natey and I wore it to the Crystal Ball fundraiser for the Arthritis Foundation.
The second time I wore it was for our Holiday party when I was 4 months pregnant with Natey.
Somewhere in between, I wore it to another wedding, but I don't seem to have any pictures from that wedding! This shot is from Tina's wedding where the zipper incident took place!
I attempted to get a shot of the dress in the bathroom at the wedding, but the lighting stunk.
So here it is, full length. I wish I would have got a picture in natural light, but with the flash and a little help from picnik it looks ok. I wanted to put it on to show you, but did I mention that the zipper is stuck somewhere in the middle and getting it off after the wedding was hard enough??!!

  10. This is too funny! You should try to get as much use out of that dress as possible! Have you heard of the little brown dress project? It is really funny- google it!

  11. Just read your True Story Tuesday... hilarious!! Sounds exactly like something that would happen to me. Except I'd already be running late, so then I'd miss the entire ceremony. : )

    Love the dress too!! I have a brown halter dress with white flowers that I wore to every function a few years back... 2 weddings and 2 auctions. Love when you get your money's worth!
