The "Wedding Dress" In Action

Last Friday (11-11-11) I attended the wedding of my niece, and wore the Vogue 1252 Tracy Reese animal print dress. I opted for sheer hose, "caged" platform pumps from Talbots, and bracelets and earrings from 2 of my Etsy friends.

I'll let the pictures do the talking.
with husband, Roland

Leather bangles from Amy Fine Design
Earrings from Kristria Designs

with daughter, Laura, in a Ralph Lauren sequined dress, and Michael Kors leather jacket (all scored with great deals at a Virginia Macy's per Laura)

Of course, my arms look strange in most of these pictures, but all in all, the dress was really comfortable. I didn't end up tacking any of the gathers, as recommended by the pattern. It just wasn't necessary. Quite an exciting and fun evening!


  1. You looked so fab in your designer original!

  2. You look absolutely wonderful! Glad you had a great time!

  3. Gorgeous dress Elle, I'd label it a huge success! You and Laura both look fabulous :D
