Get ready for a bridesmaid miracle. Or two. We have had a breakthrough people. Hold up- today is my bday. Just so you are aware. Back to the breakthrough. Betty Bridesmaid has been on a short hiatus. Maybe because she was tired. Or nervous. Or in denial. Go with option number 3. So any who, I was supposed to pick up my dress for Logan's wedding a long, long time ago. I procrastinated. Finally, I was forced to take possession. I let it hang in my car for a week. Then I moved it from my car to the back of my closet. I don't know what it is, but I FEAR the dress (any dress really). So on Friday night, when I couldn't sleep at 3 am, I decided to face the dress. So I put it on. Here is where things went CRAZY. I. actually. really. liked. the. dress. There. I said it. I didn't know what to do with myself. So I sat down. Next thing I knew- it was 9 am. I slept in the dress. And when I woke up- I still liked it. CRAZINESS. I know, you are proud. Then I took it to the bridesmaid dress alterations wizard. I just assumed it would need to be altered. So she put me in the changing room (Recall my other past visits where I was petrified and thought that I would have to get naked). I have matured people. I was only 34% scared instead of my past 125%. She came in and then asked me if something was wrong with me (In general or just right now?). She said "Girl, you don't need no alterations. You just a need to get yo self a scrapless bra." Best news I've heard in a while. She said "You like like you supposed to look. Good." I tried to mask my delight by almost tackling her and hugging her (Also out of character..). Things were looking up in the maid department. I thought yesterday was good. Let me just tell you about today's bridesmaid miracle.
Today (on my bday) I had to go down to Bella Bridesmaid. The place I hate, yet secretly love. Okay people. Confession. I kind of like it. Not the whole dress part, but the place is actually kind of cool. Plus the girl who runs it is kind of a bad *ss. I mean, when I first started in the wedding vortex, she had to deal with me. She has turned this thing into a pleasant experience. So I ventured downtown. I got buzzed in (which also makes me feel cool). When I got up there she dropped the bridesmaid miracle. Home girl took care of my dress. What does that mean you ask? BB bought my dress. I kind of wanted to cry on the spot. I made it into the circle of VIP bridesmaid. I guess she has lots of repeat business. So I will say this. All of you faithful followers out there: GO TO BELLA BRIDESMAID OF CHARLESTON. It is awesome. This is coming from a dress hating/anxiety ridden/tom boy. I've been transformed. Here is the icing on the cake. I mentioned that I secretly wanted to sport a fascinator. Okay, confession #2. I love fascinators. I do not know what the heck is happening to me. Oh well. Maybe now that I'm 26 I will start getting a lil more prissy. Maybe not. Who knows. That's enough excitement for now. I took a pic of the fascinator. I kind of want to wear it all the time... Just saying...
Make good choices,
