shopping for a dress to wear to a wedding...

isn't all it's cracked up to be.

other weddings i've been invited to i've just sort of thrown together what i've had. at my cousin's wedding i even wore my doc boots (it was snowing after all).

but this upcoming wedding? it's special. this girl used to be my best friend (we just sort of grew apart, but still love each other to death. we just don't talk nearly as often as we used to). she's been waiting to find the right guy and get married forEVER. she's in her 30's, this is her first marriage and i know she is over the moon.

so i want to find something nice to wear.

i found this dress on Amazon and am very tempted:

it's so flirty and fun! but it'll go out of style pretty quickly and i probably won't get to wear it again.

then i found this dress:

i think i could wear it more than once because it's a little more classic... and i could make it more me with my choice of accessories.

and then there is this one:

but there's the trendy-going-to-go-out-of-style issues again.


which one do you like?? please?

just to prove i have a head ;)

she's done! but not blocked.



side so you can see where i did some short rows to make the bust area higher in the front (the puckering is because i knit an elastic through with the picot edge to make it feel a little more secure):

and me modeling it... please pardon the photos. no, i'm not a tiny girl. yes, i know the new cami is slightly crooked, and yep, i'm headless (that's what i get for dressing quickly and getting kids to take the photos) (and wow... i need a self esteem boost, don't i!):
