The dress, the dress, the dress!

by mssinglemama on October 19, 2010

After finishing up a photo shoot for a client in the Short North today I couldn’t help but pop into Big Rock, Little Rooster to say “hello” to the dress I’m considering.

The dress is in one of the photographs in this post. Obviously, I can’t let the cat out of the bag because one Mr. John Bear may be reading – although he is strictly forbidden from clicking on the “click here to continue” link after this image.

The rest of you can move right along.

For the record, I am in love with all of these wedding dresses. And, as you all know, I am not a wedding person.

Maybe it’s this boutique.

The perfect mix of high end glamour and down to earth raw beauty.

Kristin, Big Rock’s owner is giving me first dibs on these beauties when they move to sample sales in April – that’s the only way I can rationalize actually owning one of them.

You can guess all you want and tease me but I’m not going to tell you which one it is until the big day in May. I also want all of you to be surprised…

Technically speaking, I’m still on the fence about the dress. But with everything going on in my life right now the dress is far from the top on my list. I’m trusting the universe and Kristin will show me the way.

What a cool store! Do you have any favorite on-line stores that you like to shop at? I am finally feeling like a normal human being after having two girls (in three years) Looking to get my style back together and love your taste 🙂

I like the one with the silvery flowers, too, and the one with the black belt (can totally see you in that). I’m gonna have to go back to Columbus one of these days. I haven’t been in a couple of years, but I love it, and you highlight the coolest stuff about it.

I absolutely LOVE the name of the boutique….”Cock-a-doodle-I-DO…brilliant!
I can honestly see you in ALL of the dresses pictured, however, there is one that jumps out at me and I can’t wait to see if it’s the dress you’ll choose, or rather, the dress that will choose you! : )
