- Wedding: March 2011
Found a suit for FI yesterday.. she’s wearing a pinstriped suit and a black velvet full-back waistcoat and a shirt with French cuffs and the little stand up tux collar (forgot what it is called). Stunning. No, she’s not a conventioinal bride in our 2 bride wedding. She wanted pinstripes all along, and as my dress will have a 30s feel i works very well. The suit is women’s, the waistcoat men’s but not like you can tell. And not like she’d care if you could.
It is sooooooo sexy and gorgeous on her. Best part? Suit and vest and shirt, all thrift store finds, $25 total. Suit is fabulous and fully lined and while certainly dressy enough, also will work for other purposes later on. Pants need a little alteration and that’s it. Jut have to find cufflinks and an ascot that isn’t “puffy”.
So at least that’s taken care of! And way way way under what we’d budgeted for her attire!
She did ask why it is that I can see her in her wedding outfit, almost complete, but not vice versa? Lol.
