I spent this past weekend witnessing an incredibly beautiful wedding of a woman the most dearest to me next to my mother. I was one of four privileged guest to see her and her fiance make the deepest vow of love. In the sweetest little mountain town tucked up in the hills of the Ozarks, they were wed at a charming Victorian style Bed & Breakfast called the Angel. The co-owner Susan fell in love with my dress, she incredibly encouraging of my pursuit in fashion, it always stimulates my passion for fashion when I hear such support from new people. In Eureka Springs, Arkansas you'll find the windy roads laced with the most quintessential B&B's (many of which claim to be haunted). The downtown area is lined with french-influenced architecture, housing a variety of eclectic shoppes. My stay there was brief, but I certainly felt the congenial free-spiritedness charm of the community to already start planning a return trip.
The dress I'm wearing I constructed the week of the wedding, working on it till the very last minute of course. The material I used I got from Kaplan's Fabrics on the Plaza, they were incredibly generous about discounting the fabrics I purchased. The dress has an ivory lace overlay ($40/yrd originally $90/yrd) with a lining and underling in a sea foam poly-blend ($10/yrd originally $14). The fabric and the notions alone made it a costly dress but the amount of labor it demanded the week of my finals makes it astounding!
Total out of pocket: $115
