I'll tell you right here and now...I LOVED my wedding dress. Loved it. Loved it. Loved it! That said, let me back up for a moment...
I saw the dumbest movie in the world over the weekend. Bride Wars...stoopid:P It did however, make me think about my wedding dress. Whenever I see brides going nuts, and paying a fortune over Vera Wang...I'm like...whatever:P My dress rocked it!
I went to a local Chicago dress designer...who btw beat Vera for the cover of Bride magazine the year I was married. She made my dress to measure for me...it. was. STUNNING.
After I watched this painfully horrible movie (Kate Hudson...Anne Hathaway, what were you thinking?) I started wondering if my wedding dress still fit? What do you do with a wedding dress? I mean this is the most expensive piece of clothing I will probably ever buy...and I'll never wear it again:P
I kid you not, the year I got married...I wanted to be a bride for Halloween, just so I could wear it again! No, I didn't...but I wanted to;)
You guessed it...I went upstairs today...dug my dress out of the closet...and tried that bad boy on.
As I stepped into it...I thought..."I think it will fit, I don't feel any bigger than when I got married." (which was six years ago and two babies ago)
I zipped it up over my hips...over my waist...then I thought "I made it past the waist, score...it fits!"
Not. So. Fast.
Is it possible for my rib cage to get bigger? Under the bust, over the waist...the zipper just stopped. I was about an inch bigger in the rib cage. How weird! There is no meat there...just rib cage...
Ah well...I suppose I won't be a bride for Halloween this year:PCan I blame the kiddos for my expanded rib cage???
