Big News!!!






Am I petite? Not by Burda's standards, but after reading a review of this dress on PR (of another non-petite gal), I thought it was worth a shot. This was the second positive review I'd seen of this dress, so I figured the waters were safe. I'll have to take some pictures tomorrow at Prom, but these will do for now.

My review of dress 116a from the March 2009 BWOF is here.


*Love* my new gold heels. Stacy London (What Not to Wear) considers gold a neutral, so I can't argue with that...



But my new snazzy dress is not the big news...
New York City, here I come!!!

In August, I will be attending a 4 day seminar in the Big Apple with Susan Khalje and Kenneth King. Excited is an understatement.
I've never been to New York. I've never had formal sewing instruction. Nervous is an understatement.
Rumor has it that I might also get a chance to meet a few of my favorite bloggers, who will also be attending the class. I think August will take forever to get here.
If you're interested in attending, here's the link to the Sit and Sew class.

Very pretty dress! Hmmm...no petite adjustment you say? I may have to make this as well. Congratulations on your New York trip. That will be so fun!

Great dress - and shoes! What fun you're going to have in New York!! It's given me a severe case of blogger-envy ;)
