When I was but a wee lass — this was in the 80s — Barbie wore clothing that looked nothing like the clothing I saw on your average adult. Heck, her clothes were brighter, quirkier, and more frilly than anything I ever saw on a model, rock star, or cartoon character. I don’t think I have to tell you how badly I wanted kid-sized versions of Barbie’s wardrobe.
I guess my tastes haven’t changed all that much, because I think this might be my new favorite wedding dress:
The bride is one Princess Lasertron, aka Megan, aka the maker of fine felt flowers and other cool stuff. Her fabulous custom dress was created by Joi Mahon of Dress Forms Design, a private design studio in Sioux City, Iowa. And the photographs (see more here) were taken by the talented Becky Novacek.
While this dress isn’t exactly wedding-y, I think it’s divine!
Oh, one more unrelated thing! Go have a look at the WaPo article that Jennie linked to in the comments of this post. How do you pull of a sane, stuff-free wedding on public property where weddings are verboten? Read the article to find out!
