I try really hard to read the blogs of our commentors, but sometimes I slack off and don't catch up as much as I would like. I was checking out You Can't Take It With You after debriefing an MPT question and found this post, which sums up so much about my dress anxiety:
"But one dress cannot be all dresses. I love strapless dresses, but I also love the deep V I get in the back of my dress. I love floaty, romantic chiffon dresses, but a structured, heavy satin dress tailored to my body is beautiful too. My MeeMaw wore a satin dress and I'm glad I share that with her. I love modern lace, but no embellishments honor the minimalist/simple side of things that I love...But I made decisions when I picked out my dress, good decisions, decisions that don't mean I'll never be able to wear another strapless or lace gown again."
I too love both v-neck dresses and strapless dresses. I love satin and chiffon. I love floaty and heavy. I picked a dress that worked for me, that I love, and that satisfied my inner princess and my inner cheepskate. I picked a dress that four women who are important to me helped me choose, and are excited for me to wear. But most importantly, it's not the last dress I will ever wear, and it would be impossible for it to be both strapless and a v-neck dress. So I shall continue to remember this post when I have my own little doubts.
