Dress ideas for my Mom
My sister, Mom and me spent President's Day perusing dress departments at various stores in Friendship Heights for wedding and rehearsal dresses for them.
Sara, my sister, came away with an adorable red dress for the rehearsal dinner. She looked and felt like a million bucks in it - just what you want.
Mom's a bit trickier. She has a very specific idea in mind of what she wants to look like on my wedding day and I'm really digging it. After seeing a spread in Vogue last May with Liya Kebede galavanting around Mali in gorgeous flowy dresses, she was sold. "That's what I'm going to wear at your wedding one day!" she exclaimed. Who would have thought only a year later, her dream might come true? There's a lot that I love in this spread, but I do have a particular fondness for the white dress shirt, unique necklace and colorful skirt on Kebede above. It would be lovely at the rehearsal dinner don't you think?
