what to wear...

i have a wedding to go to next month. a beach wedding. whose theme is beige. "beige beach wedding" just do not go with black, grey, navy or pale pale skin. what's a girl to do?! i was going to make a off-white/beige variation of that acne dress with the twisted neckline but now i am without sewing machine and left with a very small portion of my wardrobe in a suitcase that has nothing "beige beach wedding appropriate" in it. i forgot to mention we are homeless for a month and house sitting for a friend of jon's parents until our house is ready. grrr...

Thomas Wylde

i would pick up this thomas wylde dress in a heartbeat if it wasn't $475. i don't really feel like buying something that expensive just because i need something beige for a wedding. it does fits the bill i think. beige, but not boring and i could definitely wear it again as it resembles the beautiful ann demeulemeester pieces from fall 2007 that looks so nice layered with a structured jacket or vest. le sigh. i think my navy sunner dress will have to do. at least navy coordinates with beige, right?!

Nice- how did you decide what size to order? I don't even have any rings to measure to compare. The only ring I have is made from felt.

Well i just use a ring that i had thats fit, but you could draw a few circle and cut them out measuring the one that fits? I know a bit blue peter, lol. I love my ring i got it in the 'gold' look.

Btw, i tried on that acne dress you posted in your last post it's really nice, lovely material really nice drape. Quite similar to the orange strapless Acne dress but without all the hidden boning etc. Anyhow, it's really really long, i would say disproportionately long and i'm 5"8 and there is also an issue with potential indecent exposure - something to consider when you make your own version. Let me know how it goes!!!

Good idea! I'll try that.

I'm going to try and check that dress out in person before I start. I've gathered from pictures that there is a center front seam, but I'm interested in if the fabric is on bias or not. At first I thought it might be in order to utilize diagonal length for the wrap around the neck part, but now I'm thinking it wouldn't lay right as a woven... hmmm...
