I am so excited to say that after a quick phone call and a little under an hour of face time, I’ve been hired to help out at Lovely on the weekends! I’m going in this Sunday to experience the day to day operations, and in the near future I’ll be doing lunchtime bridal consultations! It all came together so perfectly: I’ve been looking for some new and exciting opportunities — preferably wedding related — that wouldn’t require quitting my day job, and they needed someone to take the pressure off during the weekend rush. It sort of feels like it was meant to be.
This was a great way to end a day that started out a little gloomy. Cesar headed off to Finland — finally! — to slay the Goliath of a project he and his boss have been working on for nearly a year now. I say finally because after much ado, the trip was originally scheduled to happen early in August. Some hiccups I don’t quite remember delayed the process and left the install dates up in the air for a while before they fell back onto the calendar and settled into these next few weeks. I am so unbelievably proud of Cesar for what he has done and learned on this project and I can’t wait to hear how the trip goes — and maybe get some pictures of the behemoth’s progress. But it’s a 25 day trip, which left us each a little blue as I headed to work this morning and he stayed home to pack. You know what they say though, absence makes the something do something, and all that schmaltzy stuff 🙂
I’ll sign off with more from the runway. These fantastic tones and textures come from Dennis Basso’s Spring 2011 collection. Not a designer with whom I am familiar. But these dresses caught my eye for the juxtaposition of unique, nearly outlandish shapes with subtle shine and soft neutral tones. I love the slight difference in hem length in the first picture. It adds the tiniest element of surprise to what is otherwise a classic, nearly commonplace silhouette. And how bout those cascading ruffles? Normally I don’t like dresses that match the model’s skin tone. But there’s just enough texture, depth, and variation in shade to make an exception for this one.
What do you think? Feel free to leave comments!! I know you’re reading, but now it’s time to start conversing 🙂
