i've been looking for a dress for the reception in michigan HARD CORE. i still haven't found anything remarkable. i was getting ready to do the THREAD dress i posted months ago, and i found out they do mail order!! great, right? well, if you're going to order a THREAD dress, it takes 3.5 months for them to get it to you. i know this is very similar with most bridal/bridesmaid things but WHAT THE FUCK? that is too long, and i am irate.

so since that, i've looked in the following places:

jcrew.com
anntaylor.com
anthropologie.com
yook.com
bluefly.com
bananarepublic.com
nordstrom.com
macys.com
neimanmarcus.com

that's all i can think of right now, but isn't that excessive??? especially if i haven't found anything yet? i'm really not excessively picky, i swear. the colors that are available right now in most cocktail dresses would be pretty garish on me, and i really hate most forms of pink. i need a not-slutty cocktail dress, preferably satin or charmeuse.... here are my closest calls right now:

it looks a little short, but it's still pretty classy.

this one initially looks too bright and loud, but maybe it would look good on?


this one is kind of the wild card right now, i just found it in a random miami dress shop...


i am drowning in a sea of ugly, non-flattering dresses. i think i might just give up for a month and come back, but by then i'll have very little time, especially if it need alterations. grrr grrr grrr!

i think it's official by now... this band, devil in a woodpile, is going to play the wedding reception in michigan.

they are a crazy fury of underground bluegrass, i think it's going to be a hell of a time. it's not really totally truthfull to say it's bluegrass... it's batshit crazy.

erin, andrew, lynn, andy, and all my fellow bluegrass lovers... you might need to make this trip out to michigan.
