♥ wouldn't it be lovely?

my little sister, jennie, is a huge fan of the tv show, say yes to the dress
so when i got engaged the first thing she told me was: "we have to go
to kleinfeld's!" well, unfortunately for her i decided to go the non–
traditional route, and found myself a gorgeous gown online.
on etsy, to be exact. and it's vintage–no less. and fits like a dream.
{i will tell you all about it soon, i promise!!!}

no running of the brides for me, or my sister, lissy, who fell in love with
and bought the first dress she found online and tried on at david's bridal.
i think perhaps if we had not fallen crazy in love with our dresses so quickly,
we probably would have taken jennie's advice and taken a trip to
the big apple to look at dresses for our big day(s).

but instead of kleinfeld's, i think the first store i would absolutely
have to make an appointment would be lovely in the west village.
and that is based solely on the store name and interior design aesethetic alone.

the chalkboard signs, robin's egg walls, book paper heart art installation,
vintage lace tags, can you think of anything more lovely?
i can't!
