Color Block Dresses, All Around the Block

Every channel I turn to I'm seeing women in color block dresses.  Color block dresses are in this year ladies!  I find them playful, charming, and, depending on how the color blocks are shaped and placed, flattering to many figures.  If you can, buy one this year, or have one custom made for you.

Cotton Wedding Dresses? Glad and Surprised!

It's June (already!!) and my daughter was part of a group of people catering a wedding reception over the weekend.  That brought back to me the fact that I haven't posted wedding dresses on this blog for a long time.

While looking at wedding sites, I ended up on a Jamaican wedding dress website whose company made cotton wedding dresses in plus sizes.  Cotton?  I didn't know women were buying cotton wedding dresses or  that designers were making them for sale.  I'm very happy about that!  As someone who's cost conscious, I'm glad that women can buy beautiful dresses to celebrate their wedding day at prices that won't put them into serious debt.

Aren't they beautiful?  I'm excited and eager to experiment with making wedding dresses out of this affordable fabric.  I'm not done yet, here's more photos of wedding dresses in traditional fabrics.
