Disclaimer

Dear Liss, congrats on getting married this Saturday! Now, just a word- I know you're leaning towards a 'conservative church wedding', which leaves me with a little bit of a dilemma. I have nothing to wear. Really- nothing. I think it would be more acceptable for me to show up naked than with any of the clothes that I own. And I reside in Boone, North Carolina, living off the coins I found under the cushions of my father's chair in the living room. What to do? (Now, if you were having more of a 'casual and stained' wedding, I wouldn't be having this problem.)

So I drove all the way to Asheville just to find an appropriate dress. And I almost did! I just want to warn you, it's a little short. Not extremely short but....let's just say I'm still not sure if it's a top or a dress. Neither did the sales girls.

I know you said 'to the knee or longer', but here in the dirty dirty (dirty!) south, they just don't make them that long. Trust me, I tried on everything. The only ones that were below the knee were empire waists, and you and I both know what that means: maternity. And I just didn't want to show up at your wedding looking like the 'unmarried gal in trouble.' I've always been the only atheist in our group of friends and it would just be too....cliche.

See you on Saturday love! And really....congratulations.

Lina, opaque tights are your friend.

"to the knee" was merely a guideline for winter wear. I would just hope in a big, Holy, drafty church, one's naked, dirty, sinning legs didn't get cold.

Um...that is the most quotable thing you have ever said Elissa. AMAZING.

"Sinning legs" had me laughing out loud. As Ali said...Duh- TIGHTS! They're all the rage now, you know. Even in the scurvy south.
