|Read: Vera Unveiled: behind the dress|
I finally decided that I'm going all in. I know I may be risking life and limb but I'm going to get my dress made... and by my dress I do mean that heart-stoppingly beautiful Vera Wang ditty. I know, I know - it's not just a dress - it's haute couture - making this a potentially, very dangerous endeavour BUT love makes you do crazy things and I am absolutely smitten.
The way I see it - whether or not the exact dress was attainable, I couldn't just walk away knowing that no other dress I tried on made me feel the same way. That no other dress made my heart skip a beat while at the same time leaving me completely calm, at ease and oh-so-happy. SO. I got in touch with a VERY talented woman and she's taken on my cause. I've had my first appointment, we talked, I got measured and we placed an order for the fabric.
I'm incredibly excited [and a little nervous] to see how this all turns out! I think the important thing I need to keep in mind is that I will not be getting the exact dress in the photo. I will however be getting a beautiful, incredibly well made dress inspired by the dress in the photo - and that, that will be wonderful.
