“ALISSA! I can’t believe you even thought it.”
And then…..I ended up wearing this. Only lipgloss and mascara. Half the stuff was from Target and under $30. It didn’t rain the night I went. It was magical. The necklace Jennifer sent me by surprise made the entire outfit, everyone commented on it.
It was at Union Station which I had only visited once as a child. I walked in, immediately called Andrew and said that I don’t care about cost, we are renting that place for our wedding. I realized I just wanted to BUY ALL OF THE THINGS as soon as I saw them coming down the runway. I got to sit next to a woman who had been a buyer for over 20 years and we got to pretend we were on Project Runway. I was Nina Garcia and she pulled out her best Heidi. We loved everything though so there were no “I’m sorry, you’re out” partings.
