More dresses from Bridal Market

On my way home from Lovely, I was trying to figure out why, after 26 years of dedicating myself to all things low-maintenance, I am suddenly and willingly enveloped in the overwhelmingly high-maintenance, girly world of all-things-bridal. But I think I starved myself of girly things for so long that I am now binging on the goods that I previously refused to have anything to do with. I grew up with a brother, had to change the channel to the football game every Sunday when I wanted to watch MTV or TLC, was always fairly unsuccessful at maintaining strong friendships with girls, and never indulged in envisioning myself as a bride.
Whatever! Now I am allowed and I like dresses! I like pretty! I like texture! I like femininity! And the symbolism of a white dress is only archaic if you allow it to be. So here are four new dresses from this week’s Bridal Market. And I love them. Still not as much as MY dress, though. Thanks, Project Wedding, for the runway coverage.
