i don't know what organdy is but...

Having more or less decided, yesterday, that I like knee/tea length dresses (I'm talking wedding, here), I googled 'tea length wedding dresses' today with that vision in mind, and came across Posh Girl vintage.
Browsing through the images I found this:

1950's White Organdy Long Vintage Wedding Dress -M
Go to the website to see more photos because this one alone doesn't really do it justice, I don't think. {via}

 And I think I'm in love.
Although it's not tea-length...It's got beautiful laze, sleaves, the waist would probably be in the appropriate place (not too high, not too low), and, once I keep going to the gym and eventually my body switches on and actually loses some weight, the waist would be fine (it's about an inch off now. Can't be too hard, right?) (My measurements are based on me getting my Apple power cord for my computer, wrapping it around various parts of myself, then measuring that against an A4 sheet of paper, then converting it to inches. In other words: My methods are flawed.)...
But like... I could actually see myself in this dress. I don't know if I'd get somebody to make it, if it turns out to be hideously expensive (no prices up yet), or whatever... But for a fairly plain, white dress... I can't stop drooling. I feel weird. I feel weird loving a dress so much on first sight.

I'm still staring at it.
I can't do my job because I'm staring.
And drooling.

....holy crap.

  1. That dress is lovely! I especially love the neckline and the sleeves.

    I had the same initial reaction to a dress by Peppermint Pretty on Etsy (I've just seen it online, not actually tried it on). I still think that's the dress, but I'm going bridal saloning tomorrow to make sure.
