I had to do a costume studio pull today for some men's wear at SAKS 5th Ave in Beverly Hills. Before leaving the office, my coworker Ryan warned "You have to go up to the Bridal Floor for studio services...it always makes me want to get married". I scoffed at that, considering I have never been one of those girls that obsesses about that particular dress or that "most important day". But I have to admit that when the doors to the elevator opened and I was hit with the harp music + magical white dress nirvana it was quite overwhelming.
Lovely white dresses with intricate beading and tiny fragile flower cutouts were dangling from every rack. I couldn't help but wander around to spy the amazing details while I waited for the rental to get written up. Seeing women giddy to try on dozens of dresses with their best friends in tow was sweet.
of course the price tags zapped me back to reality. Back yard wedding or bust
