The dress

Finally the dress for the upcoming wedding is in place. I have chosen this beautyful baby by John Zach, purchased from www.fashionunion.com
I was a little concerned as to how it would look IRL, as it wasn’t all that nice where I ended up purchasing it, but a little cheaper than where I saw it first, and where this picture is from. Anyway, it lived up to my expectations and I think I will clean up nice. It's a little bit more turquoise than the picture.
I probably need to have it shortened a little unless I find some shoes with heels that I can get my foot into. I am not sure heels are a good idea though, as the foot will be pushed forward in the shoe and the upper material will gnaw into the forefoot. It will look akward and feel uncomfortable. It is mostly the discomfort I have in mind as the dress is floorlength anyway and hides the shoes.

  1. That dress is beautiful!! Just perfect for a wedding :-) I'm with you, I don't think that heels would be good for the legs and feet at all. Since I got lymphedema, I don't wear heels. I wore heels once after I first got the diagnosis, and if it wasn't my daughters wedding, I definitely wouldn't have worn them period!! I did wear them through the church service part & the pictures. It really did me in and I swelled even more that night. (Luckily I brought regular shoes that were comfy.) With a dress that long, I think you could wear whatever is comfortable for you. Have fun, and we need an update picture of you IN the dress at the wedding :-)

  2. Thanks Zikki, I am looking forward to wearing it too! Thanks for your input reg. heels, I am going to look for some ballerinas. Have been thinking about bringing extra shoes just in case. Also searching for shawl and purse, so much work to go to a wedding!
    Will bring a picture of me all dressed up on the day :-) Might as well show off a little when dressed up for a change ;-)

  3. This dress is gorgeous. I have several in this style and I live in them. One leg is so much larger than the other that I look like a freak in pants. And the maxi dresses are so comfortable. As for high heels, in a dress like this I think I prefer the look of flats. Some pretty ballerina flats would be lovely. You will be beautiful!
    Its so nice to be able to come to a place and be able to discuss subject such as this with people who UNDERSTAND! Love your blog. Keep up the good work!

    1. Thanks Marian, I am really pleased I got it. I haven't really had an opportunity to use it after the wedding but I am glad I have it if something should come up.
      Thanks for reading and for writing, it is worth gold for me to know there are others out there and that I am not alone dealing with all this :-)

  4. Hallo,
    I was so glad when I saw your blogg. I´m a swedish woman, age 52, who have primary lymphedema since birth. First I got in the right leg and 3 years ago I got it in left leg too. I have lymphatic leek several time and after that I got eysepilas, does it spell lite that? Hope you understand what I mean.
    The dress i beautiful and I will go to a wedding too in august and need a dress too. But I have not decided it yet what to wear.
    Take car
