Well, I’m a little embarrassed about this… but I’ve had my shop open for about a week or so now….and I’ve NOT had a sale yet.
Let’s totally change that reality, shall we???
As I type this, I’m sitting in a cabin in Arkansas where it’s about 55 degrees. I can see on my weather app that it’s just about the same temperature in Austin. WHAT. IS. GOING. ON. HERE????? This craziness must stop. I cannot go much longer without breaking a sweat, y’all. Agreed????
Here’s to hoping we can usher Spring in… with what else other than….
This is one of my favorite strapless dresses of all time. It’s made to order… any size, length can be up to 33″ from underarm to hemline.
Regular Price: $68*
SALE PRICE: $45*
(That little asterisk just means that shipping is not included in price)
Here’s a full length…albeit really bad photo…how did I ever not know this photo was like this? I digress….
And here is one of my all-time favorite photos and ways to wear this dress! Give a round of applause to Indiana Adams of AdoredAustin.com for modeling this so beautifully and pregnantly! (She’s since gone on to be pregnant TWO more times… must be the dress!)
Okay now… If you too feel like Spring should do it’s thing… feel free to order one of these little ditties.
Here’s the fine print:
Sale Price: $45
Shipping: $5.65 for Priority, or FREE if you’re local.
Sale lasts: Thursday 3/13/14 – midnight Sunday 3/16/14
How to order: convo me here at my Etsy shop and I’ll set up a special listing just for you! This is a private – blog/FB sale! But please do feel free to spread the word to your pals, bridesmaids, daughters…you get the point!
love to all!
come on spring…. please…

Well, I suppose it’s better late than never. Although, I’m not sure I’ve ever experiences the opposite, so I can’t say from a well-rounded position.
Anyway, I digress.
I was asked a while back to create a one-shoulder dress that would be fun for a bridesmaid’s dress. Well, that’s pretty much ANY one-should dress in my book … but alas, I decided to create one from seersucker. Why? Because I love it…and, to be more specific, I had enough in my stash to make it. =)
I decided to mimic my Seersucker Sailor dress except add a sleeve so that bridesmaids wouldn't have to keep pulling up their dresses during the ceremony, and it's a maxi dress. My camera's battery died right after taking this photo, so right now this is the best I got. Gee - I wonder why I've never auditioned for Top Model!?! (this is a joke people. don't send me a list of reasons!)
I like it okay. It’s still growing on me. I don’t love the kimono feel to it, but I don’t hate that either. I think I need to play around with belt options … and maybe make it slightly fuller. What do you think??? Ideas??? I’m also thinking of making another version as a drop-waist dress with a full skirt … one of these days!
I’m pretty sure I’m too late to create these for my friend’s wedding – but I’m delighted to have been given the challenge!
Happy one-shouler-dress-wearing-days-ahead for you all!!!!
