Now that Iâ€™ve had my teacher voice out about dress shopping, can I ask for an opinion? My dress – the unexpected winner – is strapless and ivory, with an ivory sash. I didn’t start out looking for strapless, and while I like it a lot Iâ€™d still like to have a shrug or something over my shoulders. Iâ€™ve found several options so far:
Jenny Yoo (in ivory)
Elizabeth Rohm (if her lace ever comes off backorder, that is)
No, Iâ€™m not kidding. The Monique really is an option â€“ well, sort of. I canâ€™t actually buy the Monique, but Iâ€™ve been sewing for 20+ years and Iâ€™m reasonably confident that I can put together a riff on it with a few bits of tulle and some pearl beads.
Which do you like the best, assuming I havenâ€™t overextended my sewing abilities for Monique Fauxllier? Or should I skip the shrug entirely?
