This dress cracks me up!
The dress has How Big Is The Ring? emblazoned on the front with a bold panel that says Fiancee at the bottom.
Having gotten engaged and subsequently married last year I can relate to this dress. Upon the announcement of our engagement all the ladies I knew wanted to know had we set the date yet and what does your ring look like?
Last year when I was planning for my impending nuptials I attended a Bridal Show with my mom. I didn't want to go- but, she convinced me. I was repulsed by the commercial wedding factory atmosphere of the event and then the piece de resistance was the Bridal Fashion Show. The segment that will unfortunately always be ingrained in my mind was when a group of young guys came out on stage dressed like cowboys took off their shirts and gyrated to some country song called Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy). At which point all the ladies young and old got out of their chairs and started hooting and hollering...
Anyways, back to the dress...
This dress is ingenious with it's utilization of lace, gold and graphic image of a giddy girl pointing at her engagement ring.
It's got a definite Andy Warhol Pop Art look to it.
Size: Medium 6/8
