So we are finally going to have our wedding after a year of being married on paper! This is so exciting. It’s been a year full of big changes and the time has now opened up for a moment to fabulously commemorate our commitment! It is going to be just the two of us in Europe this fall after a family vacation over there! I went to J. Crew for an appointment to try on dresses this week and here is the experience. A “Very Personal Stylist” at J. Crew helped me out. She was incredible-incredibly positive and sincere.
Warning: my head looks super big and my body looks very small. It’s lolly-popish. This is not what I really look like…and my forehead is much smaller in person (not really).
J. Crew has an exclusive wedding shop in New York. In Seattle, there are a bunch of J. Crew stores but only ONE store has samples of the dresses. These samples are all size 8 or 10 and they just clip them with big office-style clips in the back. They were all ivory or champagne-no bright whites. Here is some of the lineup…
Dress 1: This one is 100% cotton! It’s very comfortable and beachy feeling.
Love the sash she picket out.
Dress 2: This is the type of dress I came to try on: Cap sleeves and a V neck.
Dress 3: The stylist suggested some others because so many of the dresses are sold out everywhere! I like the waist level of this one.
Dress 4: I liked the peek-a-boo slit of this one.
Dress 5: The material of this one is SUPER flattering.
Dress 6: I liked the simplicity of this one.
Dress 7: She had me try on this one for cut. It comes in ivory as well. It has the super flattering material and simple look I like.
Which dress do you like? Which one do you think I like?
