Her wedding has a simple, vintage-y vibe and her own dress will be lace (and gorgeous!). She really likes this Ann Taylor dress and this Suzi Chin but she'd like other options, potentially less expensive (she's mostly thinking of me here, since I'm in 3 weddings this year!). She likes chiffon best and doesn't want the dress to be super "bridesmaid-y." She was even flirting with the idea of gauzy skirts and a blousy white top option (thank you, pinterest) if you want to throw in a few of those options. Thanks!"
First off, holy bridal gown! That thing is beautiful. And what a great friendship you two seem to have. The colors y'all chose are sensational. You're going to look like a vision no matter which shade you go with. As for the blouse-and-skirt option, make sure you add some shape to your frame with a belt so you don't get lost in the chiffon sauce. Have fun!!

Magzilla here: When I'm not busy eating my way to the bottom of a ginger candy bag, I'm tweezing my eyebrows. I prefer the hard core body modification scene but can also appreciate a ruffle or bow when I see one. Beauty and barrels of maternity/kid crap are my specialties. When you need help finding the right shade of eyeliner to match that new shade of "I haven't slept in days" tint your skin gets after a baby or four, call on me. Loudly.
