I must have been in the neighborhood one day [the theater district/too close to Port Authority/almost Hells Kitchen] for some really fantastic reason [I never go there unless. absolutely. necessary.], because I walked by a fabric/lace store and stopped in my tracks. I may have already found my dress at this point, but it made me, for just one second, reconsider that decision. But then I remembered the laborious 14+ month dress search. But I still think about this showstopper of a dress.

I originally went inside one dreary fall day after realizing that they do custom veils. I never got one made because I couldn’t decide on the style, couldn’t try it on with my dress, couldn’t commit to a lace and defaulted to the silk flower I already owned. Then I saw that sample above. I had this in mind, before realizing that the flowers and lace went too far up the tulle. Regardless, I still think about this, here:

So lovely, right? Not the standard option. But back to that lace. Oh my, the lace. If I could do the dress thing all over again, it could be incredible on a gown with a little sweetheart bodice with flowing skirt with the lace overlay, like so~
I hope someone runs all over that idea one day.
