NorwegianWood 's Thoughts:

Ok, so this is the surprise I was talking about….

Soooooooo, my BF proposed a couple months ago, and I WAS going to sew my own dress (being a designer and all), but then I found this amazing dress stuffed in a box at a vintage-by-the-pound place just outside of Montreal, eeep!

Ignore the wrinkled bottom, I took this pic the first time I tried it on at home, and haven’t had time to handwash it and steam out the wrinkles yet.

OK here’s the best part:
Since it was vintage by the pound, it only cost me $5!!!!!!!!
And it came with a matching bolero jacket and veil, eep! The bolero needs a bit of work (it has long sleeve and they’re really scratchy) but overall I’m soooooo excited!!!!

You guys are all so sweet, thanks so much for the kind words! I was soooo stressed about finding/making a dress, I'm just so happy to have found something that seems really perfect. Our wedding will be outside in my parents yard (they live in the country) so I think the look of this one is just great, and I don't have to worry about ruining it on the grass or anything

NorwegianWood

Actually the place is just outside of Mtl in St. Hubert, my friend who knows the name of the place is in NY right now, but when she gets back I can let you know! But really, it's not really all good vintage, this was a TOTALLY lucky find, mostly it's just old worn out clothes, not much nice stuff at all. We were looking for old mens shirts and silk shirts and silk scarves for reworking
