Backwards Bird

I may not have a wedding date yet (fingers crossed we'll have one tomorrow or even this week!) but I did accomplish one "bottom of the list" wedding checklist item on black Friday.

I present you, bloggie friends, my rehearsal dinner dress. (Please ignore my rainy day hair and messy in the midst of unpacking bedroom)

(The photo doesn't do the gold and silver embroidery justice!)

Since I had to work black Friday evening, Mom, Sister, and I headed to a short list of places on the Friday after Thanksgiving. I found this beauty at Saks for about 75% off! It called to me from the hanger. Once I put it on I couldn't believe the perfect fit. The sales lady said it seemed to be made for me and my tall self! I may be a little backwards in my checklist but I'm excited to have one thing checked off!

Dress: Aidan Mattox via Saks Fifth Avenue
