It’s been a lazy three-day weekend here in La Casa de Beard. But I know I like to browse my favorite blogs on long, leisurely weekends, so I certainly couldn’t leave you high and dry. In lieu of a longer, more detailed post, I present to you this lovely three-quarter sleeved beaded and embroidered satin gown from Ginnis. It pairs wonderful gauzy arm coverage with a simple, unadorned chapel-length train, and it even comes with a matching purse.
Though, truth be told, I’m not sure how much play wedding purses get. It may just be that my ceremony and reception were held at the same site — and the site was property belonging to family — but I never once saw the vintage gold clutch that held my homemade emergency kit during the whole of the day. Of course, if I hadn’t put together that little kit, I’m sure all heck would have broken loose and my entire bridal party would have been scouring Merritt Island, FL for safety pins and Tums. Such is life.
