First let me announce that I found my wedding shoes! They are almost identical to the photo I had posted on the blog last week. You know the shoes that were about eight hundred U.S. dollars? I won’t tell you how much mine cost, I want you to see the photos first and then we can talk amongst ourselves. My dress arrived as well and it is more beautiful than my target dress, but and this is a big but there is a little technical difficulty at the bustline. I wasn’t expecting the dress to be perfect but to find out that it visually is and that I can’t wear it ‘as-is,’ is heartbreaking. Please note, I blame myself for rushing this dress, my seamstress is aces in my book, a virtuoso of sewing to be sure. I am hoping a tailor can fix, there were no tailors open this Sunday waiting for a crazed bride-to-be to race into their shop with an insane request, so I am hoping Monday a willing tailor will have a brilliant solution. I have both a Plan B & Plan C in regards to the lovely dress, I don’t give up that easily. I shall keep you posted whether you are interested are not. I am good like that.
In other news, I am gearing up for holiday in the shop. I am adding this set of token bags to the shop. Yes they are technically muslin bags, but muslin isn’t as pretty a word as ‘token’. I am hand printing them with the ‘special delivery’ stamp and you will receive ten 4″ x 6″ bags in a larger 6″ x 8″ bag, it’s like the matryoshka doll of token bags, only better. I love any easy way to wrap a gift (I am challenged in the wrapping department) and it really doesn’t get any easier or cuter than this.
