I was in a wedding party last Saturday and I have to say that my bridesmaid dress was pretty good. It’s tough to find a dress that multiple girls agree on/look good in, and there’s always drama surrounding the whole process, but this one was elegant and not too controversial. We had them made by a dressmaker named Sue from Hamilton, Ontario.
I enjoyed the mid-grey colour because of its simplicity, and the bride picked out beautiful jewel tone bouquets that complimented it very well. We all wore sparkly cuffs that I found at Aldo Accessories. They were regular $50 but I happened to catch them on sale for $15 each. Not too shabby. My earrings came from a street vendor in New York City for $10, and my black Valentino-esque clutch is from Nine West, but I actually got it in a gift bag on Cityline once. I wore super high heels which was kind of dumb because my feet were hidden and after the second round of pictures I was in high-heel-hurting-hell. Every time that happens, I envision myself having to wear the orthopedic shoes my Grandma wears from Walking On A Cloud. Slightly scary. Send me an email if you would like the dressmaker’s info – she’s really good. JD
PS – I’m fully aware of the giant stain down the front of my dress. That was a result of champagne spillage from the 90s dance party on the limo bus. Well worth it.
