the facts are as follows: i am getting married in a mere 64 days(!), most of the major decisions have been made, but i am in need of some type of warm(ish) garment to wear over my dress. i thought i had it all figured out, but then i started looking for the mustard cardigan i thought i wanted and it's gotten all complicated.
now for the reward: two recycled felt coffee cup sleeves will go to a random commenter on this post. when? i'll announce the winner this coming sunday, october 30. and i'll even throw in a second (bonus!) entry if you're a fan on imagine gnats on facebook. just leave a second comment telling me that you're already a fan or that you just "liked" it.
now, get ready for loads of pics after the jump. (loads!)
dresses for the girls
dress for me (to be shortened to tea length)
capes for the girls (lined in pink)
my shoes are *sort of* like this... just a tad darker, with 1.5" heels, and leather.
general style of the flowers
silver birdcage veil with silk dupioni flowers in mustard (similar to this - by House of Telsa)
hopefully that gives you an idea of what we're working with here. now here's the conundrum... i thought i wanted to just find a simple mustard color cardigan to wear with my dress (after seeing lots of adorable cardigan-with-wedding-dress pics on pinterest - one example here). well, said cardigan apparently does not exist.
pretty, right? sadly, not available in mustard anywhere that i can find.
so, i'm thinking about a few alternate options....
faux shearling coat from forever21
make myself a cape something like this burda pattern (in gold wool from moda)
make my own cardigan out of a t-shirt (click on pic above to see tutorial), using something adorable (lace maybe?) for the edging
blah, blah, blah... ok, now i need your help! what do you think? any ideas i haven't thought of? do you love/hate any of these options? can't wait to hear what you think....
