debut

10.17.2010




A while back, I mentioned that I was having trouble finding a dress for the gazillion weddings I had this year. Therefore to make my life easier, I decided to make a dress. 1. It'll be a one of kind. 2. It'll fit like a glove. 3. I'll get exactly what I want.

It took one month to make due to my busy schedule however the creation is finally complete and I love every inch of this masterpiece. I wore it yesterday to a wedding and got nothing but compliments all evening. I have no one to thank for this but my mom. All I did was choose the fabrics and design the dress but the mastermind behind all the sewing is her. She's amazing!!! I can't wait to start working on more pieces.
I swear, I fall more in love with my husband every time I look at him. What handsome fella!!

Old Aldo shoes which I spiced up by adding bows to the back. 

dress: my own creation / clutch & pearl ring: ardene / shoes: Aldo (I added the bows)
