Last week hubby and I attended our dear friends wedding which was set at a winery in Red Hill, Victoria. Since most of my photographs are set in my backyard, we thought that after the ceremony we’d have the perfect opportunity to take advantage of a different backdrop for my blog.
I am so glad we did, because, aside from the gorgeous scenery, this blog now features a post of me in evening wear with a pair of knock out heels that have been in storage for I can’t even remember how long now. As elegant as I felt, there was some behind the scenes touch ups that needed to happen before any photos were taken. Like every other women in heels at the wedding, my feet were muddy, and my heels kept digging into the grass at the vineyards. As a result I had disgusting feet and the tip of my heels were dressed with big balls of grass. So at the first opportunity I got, I went straight to my car and got out my baby wipes to clean my shoes and feet. My husband thought it was hilarious but I tell you what, even if you don’t have kids, go get yourself some baby wipes and leave them in your car or bag because you never know when you will need them. I distinctively remember giving a total stranger some baby wipes during my last overseas trip. I won’t go into the details but it was just as well I had some on me!
Now to this dress! This beautiful vintage number is beaded from top to bottom. I love it so much and it kills me that I don’t get to wear it very often. It was purchase several years ago and since then it has become my go to wedding dress. I have now worn it to three of the four weddings I have been to in the last three years and every time I wear it, it feels like the very first time.
What do you think of this number? I’d love to hear your comments.
Thanks for reading.
