Getting shots of the dress NOT on my body is way easier than getting them ON my body. For example, here’s a classic:
That’s RIGHT, baby. We were shutting. it. down. But the dress? You can’t exactly see it so much.
Where you CAN see it is right here:
That is PROM, baby! Which is nice, because no one ever invited me to prom, which means I never went, which makes me like the girl Annie Potts talks about in Pretty In Pink. (My husband is about done hearing this story, but it is a part of me, so.)
I’m a little disappointed, I’m not gonna lie. This venue is dreamy, and I had really hoped to get some pictures of this beautiful, classic dress in front of the rustic wood barn walls and the lovely, upscale antiques that fill it. This photo was taken early in the evening, before guests had begun to arrive, when the photographer was testing the backdrop (it was later taken down–after my chance was gone, sad trombone). But my husband and I were having such an awesome time, and so many of our friends were there, and the music was so good and the drinks were going around…I just never quite got back to the photographer to have another shot taken.
But then I thought: why do I need to have them taken only there? What I mean to say is, what’s stopping me from taking this dress on a WORLD TOUR?? So I present to you: The Blue Velvet Cocktail Dress Prom Picture Around the World Tour 2013!
Sigh. What a dream, right? I would totally take prom pictures in any and every one of these places. And maybe even UNDERWATER?
But really, why stop at a WORLD tour? Let’s make it COSMIC!
Prom pictures for the whole universe, from Mars to wherever! Heck, even Pluto gets to be a planet in this scenario. Prom for everyone!!
Happy New Year, y’all. May your next twelve months be filled with laughter and adventure. See you there!
