Picking THE Dress: David's Bridal, Kleinfeld, RK Bridal..!

Being so tiny, (under 4' 11"), I thought it would be really difficult trying on wedding dresses and deciding what kind of dress I would want but I was very surprised and happy to find that it's so easy to clip back a size 10 or size 12 dress to see how it would look on a much smaller frame. All in all, I tried on around 60 dresses before I found "the one", but more on that later. Here's a little summary of all the places I went and my process for choosing my dress. My very first stop was David's Bridal and I was extremely happy to find out they carry Melissa Sweet gowns because I fell in love with this designer's dresses over 8 years ago when I helped my sister plan her wedding. Melissa Sweet's designs are just really sweet and really appealed to me so when I got to David's Bridal, I mainly tried on different silhouettes and mostly Melissa Sweet gowns.

September Haul + Dominica!

Everything from September's Haul was actually purchased in South Africa, as mentioned in the last post :)    *EDIT: Not everything is from South Africa! I forgot to include this piece, which I picked up from Old Navy girl's. :) And here's some pics from my DR trip with A, which is also most likely my last trip of the year: What I miss so much - buffet, all day everyday Hammock time Chess time Sad to leave this paradise October haul to hopefully come soon!

South African Adventure + Shopping!

Shortly after my trip to Alaska, I left yet again to South Africa (I really need to space out my trips). I had an amazing time exploring nature there and went on multiple game drives that I will never forget. World Design Capital 2014 - perfect time for us to visit :)   Heading up to Table Mountain, one of the new 7 Wonders of Nature. Seal island!   Boulder's Bay, the highlight of my trip :) Posing So far from home.. this is where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Indian Ocean.     Beautiful garden   Breathtaking view The game drives were unbelievably awesome.
