Jenny Lee

It's been mentioned a few times here and there, but I'd like to dedicate this post to my favorite wedding dress designer: Jenny Lee. The way she drapes fabric, strategically places roushing and shapes a gown is unmatched. She's so good that I have really considered spending 3 thousand dollars MORE than I planned to on a dress -- especially for a girl like me, who's not skinny, but lacks a traditional hour glass shape.

Exhibit A:

And from that angle, this dress looks like a simple a-line. But there's a big surprise in the back.

I love this dress. I just can't get over it! It's a ton of fabric but feels like you're wearing a sundress, which is exactly what this beach bride is looking for.

And then on the other hand, there will be just over 50 people at the wedding, 34 of which will be family. Who do I really need to impress with a designer $5,000 dress? Last night Mr. Shirlington and I had a dress discussion, and I even made him go through the latest Martha Stewart Weddings to point out what he does and does not like. I know he would love this dress!!! AHHH!! Why can't Jenny Lee be one of those old family friends who would gift me my dream gown?

I agree that it might not be the most appropriate dress for an intimate beachy type wedding, but i have to say you look HOT in that dress. Your figure looks really really good.

Where in the heck did they let you take pictures of a dress? Every time I tried to snap a pic of a contender I had clerks lunging at me like ninjas.
