longleggedlady.comLast week was a rough one for both Derrick and I, so we decided to give ourselves a break and spend the whole weekend dancing, eating and sleeping. It was wonderful and much needed. We took these photos yesterday after a super late brunch and a long, lazy walk around the Mission. This dress is perfect for doing nothing on a 70 degree day.

le chop  |  longleggedlady.comYou may or may not be aware of this, but a marriage isn’t actually recognized by law until the bride chops off all her hair after the wedding. So, now it’s official.

On the subject of the wedding/marriage in general, things are wonderful. The wedding was dreamy. I’ll post all the details on that when I get the photos. Derrick and I have been being obnoxious newlyweds since, and we’re planning the honeymoon (ICELAND!) next.

Back to fashion though. Monica sent me this Amatoria dress as a wedding gift and I’ve been holding out for a special occasion to wear it. On Sunday night I had the perfect opportunity: we went to see our [unbelievably brilliant and talented] friend Chadi dance in a festival at the ODC Theater. He was incredible, his beautiful partner was incredible, they completely stole the show.

Like all of Monica’s work, this dress is flawless. It’s lighter than air, and the patterns on the two layers blend so perfectly. We tried our best, but these photos just don’t do it justice. All I can really say is that I feel absurdly chic when I put it on.
