Found My PERFECT Dress

Too bad it’s only available in a 1941 or 1942 Sears Roebuck Catalog. It cost $6.98.

(My apologies for poor quality here.)

It’s perfect, isn’t it? The simple pleated skirt, wonderfully flattering blouse, the elegant sleeves, and my goodness, the wonderfullness that is that embroidered cummerbund waist.

In browsing wedding dresses online (I’m totally in the pre-planning-dreaming stages here), I’ve realized that while I thought I wouldn’t care what I wore as long as the reception was fun and we had an awesome photographer, I have been totally unimpressed with wedding dresses. I don’t hate them all, but nothing has grabbed me. Nothing looked like what I wanted (not that I could have defined what I wanted–I’m one of those “I’ll know it when I see it” shoppers). But this dress. Oh, this dress. This dress confirms, once again, that I live in the wrong decade.

I love this dress so much, I might actually consider paying a seamstress to recreate it. Too bad it won’t cost $6.98.
