Thursday Purseday

Oh happy day, it's Thursday!

Coach, take a note from Burberry. Modern does not equal tween. It needed to be said, right? I just love the color, design and how it just doesn't compromise what Burberry is.

Ten Days

Programs are printed and they look amazing, thanks to my super talented fiance who worked so hard on them. Almost every RSVP has been sent back to us and we even got a card from the Obama's! Bachelorette party this weekend. Meetings with photog, dj and florist have been taken care of. Thank you cards came in a matter of days. There is finally a hair and makeup person to take care of us. We are scoring a pretty sweet deal at our reception site and the words "I want to honor what you were told" have been said. I have to count my blessings because we do have a lot to be really thankful for.

Here I am ten days away and still no dress. My family must have a problem with dresses because my mom's dress got snagged as well when they were hemming the bottom. She's waiting on her dress to come in as well. My dress was supposed to come in yesterday but Richard was called and told "maybe tomorrow". You just don't say that to a person who's getting married next weekend. I know I'm being told it's on it's way but that nagging feeling won't go away. So I've decided if it doesn't come in today, I'm not messing around anymore. I need to find a dress that can at least serve as a back up.

All that drama aside though, I'm getting pretty freaking excited. I'm getting married and I can't wait! The things I'm most excited for is exchanging vows, dancing and getting to San Diego. I cannot wait to get to San Diego, people. With my new husband!!!!!!!!!! :) Love it.

Tuesday Shoesday

It's snowy today in Chicago and as much as I want spring to be here, it's still winter. What says winter better than silver shoes that will make you fall straight on your ass from slipping on ice?

bows and sparkle

So I think that groundhog was wrong, don't you? Oh least we still have pretty shoes!

You know, I really need to get myself a pair of Kate Spade shoes. They're just so gorgeous and classic.

Wednesday, February 9, 2011

Well, this is a surprise.

24 days.

I don't have a wedding dress.

Yes, I'm freaking out. I'm actually doing a lot better than I was yesterday though. I was at work ready to have an anxiety attack.

Let me tell you the short version.

I called the shop, they said the dress was in. Thanks for calling and telling me that. So I made an appointment. Monday, I go in to try the dress on in all it's glory. After waiting with a friend for a few minutes, I know something is wrong. The manager comes back and says my dress isn't here, there was a snag in it so they had to send it back (to China) and I'm getting a new one. At that point, I'm speechless. My friend starts talking for me. The woman promises it will be here in time, we'll work with the fastest seamstress they have. Then she tells me this: "We just didn't want you to worry and freak out."

It's three weeks before my wedding. I don't have a dress. You didn't want to freak me out?! Well, I am now!!

When it gets down to it, none of us believe that the dress was there to begin with. The place that the dress is made is closed for Chinese New Year and they don't know when it will open again. My dress will be in the next shipment, whenever that may be. Let's just say we're calling everyday now.

So, I may be on the hunt for a new dress. My mom is going to the shop on Saturday which I think is just wasting time but she wants to do it in person in the middle of the store so people know what they're dealing with. She said she will be talking nicely and calmly but if she needs to go momzilla on them, she will. Her goal is to either walk out with the sample, a sample of any other dress I want in the store or money to buy me a sample somewhere else.

I'm trying to stay positive. Whatever happens, at the end of the day I'm marrying Richard and that is all that matters.

Tuesday Shoesday

For some reason today, I thought that I needed to find the perfect blush shoes. Maybe it's because there is some crazy snow supposed to hit my neck of the woods when I'm just waiting for spring but I found some pretties. :)

sweet ballerina heels

and cute flats to change into

Oh spring...where are you?? Come my way around the beginning of March.
