Finally picked out my bridesmaid's dress:
(But in "platinum").
Pretty, right? It has kind of a 50's flair with the full skirt and the sweetheart bust. I'm working on shedding some poundage so I can really look snazzy (as my grandfather would have said). I even found the shoes! I'm about 90% sure these are the ones, so I went ahead and bought them (but they can be returned)
The heel height is perfect: tall enough to make them chic and to my taste, but still comfortable to stand/walk/dance in. I knew I wanted a color, and while I had in mind something in navy, burgundy or dark green, I like the orange too. Kind of different with the silver dress, right?
In other news, I'm back from NYC for the summer and trying desperately to find work so I can afford to move back up to NY this fall. But the job market basically sucks right now, so I'm not having much luck.
