Right. So I was doing a bit of reception dress shopping last week. Because it wouldn’t be my wedding without a few wardrobe changes, naturally. I found a dress, by the by. I ordered it and it should arrive next month. But that is not really the subject of this post. The subject is, rather, the pages and pages of crazy stuff that I had to flip through in order to find the pretty stuff. Like, really, you have to wonder how some of this stuff even got produced. But don’t take my word for it, see for yourself…

Angela: good grief how strictly ballroom is this:
cimorene: that reminds me of the prom dresses from the early 90s as well.
Angela: ooooh. no, THIS does.
Angela: god i would love to put somebody in that as a costume though. it's so bad it's brilliant
cimorene: totally. i feel it's like what you would see in, for example, a poirot or miss marple
episode where the victim was an obvious copy of elizabeth taylor or something.
Angela: good grief. it's like they started out with a swimsuit and forgot to cut away the rest of it.
Angela: now THIS is a halloween dress
cimorene: wow, i love that halloween dress. i really love black net over nude drsses.
Angela: now here's on that says "hello, i'm a drag queen."
cimorene: ahahhahahahahha. that is really something.
Angela: "excuse me miss, there's something growing on your neck."
cimorene: hahaha, that looks like a 90s star trek costume.
Angela: just call me cruella
Angela: another entry for miss drag queen usa
Angela: just for you, feathers. i'm not entirely sure if this is lingerie or a
showgirl outfit, but it's really not a dress.
Angela: you want scifi? here ya go.
Angela: more feathers. just for you.
cimorene: are those feathered PANTS? or just... a split front or something...
Angela: i... really don't know
cimorene: i am definitely impressed.
Angela: this? takes 'something for everybody" a bit too seriously.
cimorene: ...woooow...it's like lisa frank
Angela: tinkerbell becomes a hooker!
cimorene: HAHAHAHA WHAT
Angela: aw man, i ran out of dresses
cimorene: wow, that's a surprisingly apt description
Angela: okay, that was an amusing evening
cimorene: hahaha. yyyeaaaaah.
