And let’s say that opera was the Marriage of Figaro. What would you wear?
A wedding dress? Of course you would.
I found this beauty at a vintage shop and even though I’m already hitched I had to have it.
I’m getting it shortened so it will be more of a ballet length as opposed to an I’m-going-to-the-chapel length. (I’ll post the “after” shot along with the big reveal of my Hammer pants post-makeover.)
I’m guessing the dress is from the sixties. But the spookiest part about it? The initials sewn inside — they’re mine.
That is the creepiest thing ever! But so gorge. Watch out for ghosts.
wow that’s so cool that the initials are the exact same as yours! meant to be, I’m tellin’ ya ;)
the dress is beautiful and I don’t blame you for feeling like you had to have it, it looks great on you! I love the bodice and how the skirt looks like a cloud puff.
can’t wait to see the “after” shot!
Uhm Kelsey… you were the most beautiful bride I have ever seen. I’m actually speechless.
Your wedding pictures are beyond stunning. Wow.
And yeah… the initials being yours in the vintage dress? A liiiiittle bit creepy haha.
Creepy!!! But gorgeous dress.
This dress is cool, but I like your real wedding dress even better – gorgeous to the extreme!
You know, I’ve oftened wondered what your wedding looked like if your everyday style was so fun and amazing. Thanks for sharing! It was stylish and full of your personal touches – didn’t expect any less! I am also incredibly jealous of your message from the Backstreet Boys, haha ;)
Stefanie — Oh no! What if the dress is haunted with my own ghost? That’s so post-modern, isn’t it?
Nicole — I, too, can’t wait to see the “after” shot. I’m praying it turns out well.
Melissa — You are hands down the sweetest person ever. Thank you!
Kaye — Creepy but gorgeous is exactly the look I was going for ;)
Camille — Thanks ladybird. From the photos I’ve seen of yours it was also gorgeous to the max.
Mango — I cannot even tell you how much that BSB message made my life. Especially when Nick Carter looked straight into the camera — dead serious — and said “Stay married”. Such brilliant advice.
Wow, the same initials? Clearly this dress was destined to be yours. I can’t wait to see how it turns out post-alterations!
The stars are aligned ….Marriage of Figaro, wedding dress, your initials …. it’s not creepy, it’s karma.
That is sooo weird! I can’t believe you are finally getting it shortened, is Susan doing it?
Lisa — I picked it up from the tailor last night (I have never been so nervous walking in there) and it turned out exactly how I hoped it would. Can’t wait to wear it.
Irina — Meant to be, isn’t it?
Larissa — I got it hemmed at Oakridge Tailors on Cambie.
What a gorgeous dress…just like out of a fairy tale. And very weird and spooky about the initials…maybe it’s meant to be…seems like a potential episode for Ghost Whisperer
LOVE IT. Also love that I can see the painting you won in the silent auction from Hope in Haiti!!! I miss our frequent and absurd emailing. I think you and Rissy should come on board Reddy for a Cure. Summer fundraiser?
Back to the dress. Okay I can’t focus on the dress with all the animals crawling around in the back. LEROY
Going to the opera as a blogger?
[…] What did it look like before? This. […]
Teresa — Man, I hope it’s not haunted. The KD from another era would be pretty mad at me for chopping it.
Kimber — I miss Hope in Haiti too. And Leroy misses you.
Irina — You better believe it. I’m all about geeking out.
[…] like your Great Aunt Helga? Wander around in a wedding dress from the sixties like some scorned […]
[…] someone else’s wedding dress (likely from the sixties). And I wore this wedding dress to The Marriage of Figaro, which is admittedly, a little ridiculous. But the most ridiculously spooky […]
