Girlie Stuff on my Groomsman Stint
Katie requested a photo of me in my groomsman dress, so here’s a shot I had taken with her specifically in mind:
Me outside of church
I’m not sure what is going on with my posture in that shot above, but I’m certain my belly dancing teacher would not be pleased. My mother thinks I’m trying too hard to suck my belly in. I think it is more likely I’m trying too hard to stick my chest OUT. 🙂
The dress was After Six Style #6257 in New Garnet Renaissance Satin.
I got my hair done at a place called Sophisticuts in Woodbridge, Virginia. The resilence of that up-do was amazing. Not only did it survive all that dancing, but that evening when I got home, I fell asleep on the couch for three hours. I woke up and the hair was still in place! Their effort took 43 bobby pins and a lot of hair spray.
I wish I could say for Stacy and Louise I did something special with makeup that day, but I didn’t. It was the same old Revlon Colorstay Active (with SPF 25 protection!), L’Oreal Lineur Intense Liquid Eyeliner and Maybelline Great Lash mascara I typically wear to work. I would share the brand names of my blush and eye shadow too, but you see, they are so old, the labels wore away long ago. :)
Hahaha, you can put the hiker in a dress, but you can’t squelch the outdoors spirit. Underneath that beautiful fancy dress… I was wearing camouflage underwear.
