Concrete Catwalk // Blue Bell

IMG_4362.jpg
i only make this face at gerard when he's pushing my buttons... thought it was funny. ha.
love the details - sweet little gold buttons and an open back...
plus it's lined with a pretty patterned fabric!
this is what happens when your friends stand behind your husband while he takes outfit photos!
i have been wanting to wear/take photos of this dress for MONTHS
and i'm so glad that i'm finally able to share it with you!
my sweet friend, shannon happens to be a talented local designer/seamstress,
and when she approached me wanting to design a dress together
so that she could make it for me, i could hardly believe my ears!
we had such a great time collaborating on this piece,
and i just know i'll have it and wear it for a very long time.
even more special because it was made by a dear friend, no?
(p.s. i steamed it before wearing, but didn't think about the +1 hour car ride
to the wedding that i wore it to.  should have thought that through a little better!)
happy friday, friends! hope you have a wonderful weekend! XO
