The Dress fitting on Thursday went very well. I changed into the dress…
and was excited to try the dress with the shoes. Gotta say- I’m very happy with the shoe decision. They’re from Sofft, and very soft. I really like the padded footbed and soft upper, and I’m hoping they’ll stay on all night without a problem.
As for the dress: the top still fits (with a bra I already own, too), the length is just right with the fabulous shoes, so all it really needed was a bustle. we tried an American bustle and a French one, and both Sydney, Jennifer and Emily (the alterations lady) agreed: French was the way to go. So, Emily pinned it in place, and Syd & I will head back next Thursday to try it on and learn how to do the bustle.
And then, we cooed over Paul, who was being a really good sport.
