Seriously people these are things I’ve had to tell sales people trying to sell me their idea of a “perfect dress” for my friends wedding.
AAAARRRGGGHHHH! It should NOT be this hard!
So what’s the problem you ask? I can narrow it down to 3 simple answers.
1. It’s not a funeral – I don’t want to wear black. Apparently this is CRAZY TALK as every semi-formal dress made for a curvy girl has been made in black and ONLY black. WHY? To slim me down and “hide those problem spots”… HELLO I like my curves! I eat a lot of ding-dongs to keep this figure, why are you trying to hide it!?
Also weddings are happy and bright and joyful things, why would I want to come as the grim reaper… although in Asia white is the mourning color so they probably think our weddings are depressing as hell… but that’s beside the point! I WANT COLOR!! So they bring out #2.
2. I’m not the mother of the bride – So STOP showing me her dresses. COME ON I’m young…ish. Give me something fun and flirty and me! And that’s when they show they have not been listening to a single word I’ve been saying and scrape the bottom of the barrel to bring me #3.
3. Me:… dude…
Sales person: Isn’t it gorge!
Me: … Dude…
Sales Person: You wont know till you try it on!
Me: … DUDE…
hahah that’s a funny pic lol I think next time you should choose your own dress. no one knows u better than yourself. nice post 🙂
Just came back from doing that! The best I was able to get was a sexy dark purple mother of the bride dress ;-P
LOL hilarious post! i hate how people justify wearing black because its slimming…it also lacks personality and life.

Lol @ the caption of the grim reaper pic. P.s. I had no idea about that whole wearing-white-at-Asian-funerals thing, it totally threw me for a loop!
I learned it from watching MASH.. come to think of it a lot of my life lessons were learned from watching MASH.
hahahhaha. I hate shopping for dresses!!!
And this is why I don’t like to shop. You should have your own comedy show! Vajayjay…too funny.
Thanks!!! I love saying vajayjay, I would use it in every sentence if I could!
I like black but also find that black dresses are for funerals instead of being fun.
I have three black dresses that I LOVE, but make it a personal mission to never wear them to weddings… Weird I know 🙂
