Instagram Roundup #25

by Jamie Sanford on January 30, 2013

Here are all of the other Instagram Roundups! I am contemplating content other than this weekly Instagram post. Coming soon! I’m going to an accessory swap soon so I’ve been trying to wear all of the necklaces to see which ones I might part with. It will not be this one with antlers. I cannot resist jewelry with antlers. My current bedside lip balm is this Chapstick Botanical Medley. It smells delicious. We got a juicer. This was the second juice that came out, it was quite fruity and delicious. I need to start drinking the more unfortunate green juices with more kale and whatnot. This whole nail situation was not intended. It is OPI Ink, with Milani Hi-Res sponged on top, and then some OPI Servin’ Up Sparkle on top of that. I meant to only sponge the tips but it looked odd so I just went over the whole thing. I was going through an old InStyle and became more obsessed with this printed skirt from McQ. I wasn’t a very good bride even when I was in the midst of planning a wedding. However, I was really pissed that this Vera Wang for David’s Bridal dress wasn’t around when I got married. It’s beautiful. We had amazing heavy fog this morning, so I stopped in the little riverside park to take some photos on my way to the office. I wish I had taken my real camera with me, but I’m glad I stopped only to take phone pictures.

Vera Wang Does Not So Basic Black Wedding Gowns

Vera Wang Does Not So Basic Black Wedding Gowns

I would have worn a black wedding dress 5 years ago when I got married, if I had been able to get away with it – ie, if Vera Wang black wedding gowns had been on the market as an example. However, black wedding dresses were not all the rage, so I ended up with a white dress with a big black sash. I chose black and white as the wedding colors, and encouraged everyone else to wear black, since I wasn’t able to.

I will be wearing black for our upcoming vow renewal, even though that plan turned into a hot mess. (More on that soon.)

Anyway, I was surprised/disappointed/left calling out “FINALLY” when I saw that Vera Wang presented a number of dark and black gowns during her Spring 2012 bridal show. (Photos via Brides.com)

It’s about time, Vera. You’ve been teasing us with hints of black on dresses for years, but now you’ve taken the plunge. I hope this trend continues and I hope that brides who are like me will take this as an excuse to wear the black dress they want to wear for their wedding, regardless of it being a “wedding dress” or not.

Would you wear a black wedding gown? Talk about it in the comments.
