27 Dresses

Good Tuesday afternoon everyone! As I have said many times over the past few weeks, I apologize for our lack of blogging and promise to try and maintain a more consistent posting schedule. I was away for the week of Canadian Thanksgiving with E visiting my Mom and Dad down in Jersey. I know her friends and our family are thinking of her and wondering how she is doing so, to let you know, she is doing well and staying positive. We all miss her here and can't wait for her to be home. The reason I have been so behind on blogging is that I used to do it either first thing in the morning, or late in the afternoon when things had quieted down... but these days, things at the office never quiet down. Well, I have a lull this afternoon so I decided it would be a good time to update everyone on the life of Life of Three.

To begin, T's baby bump is growing! Slowly, but surely... we can finally see a bit of a bump when she's wearing a tight shirt or close fitting sweater. Friends tell us she will 'pop' at about twenty weeks... and we're almost there. She's got to be one of the cutest pregnant girls I know!

My sisters and I are so excited to be Aunties and we don't hide it very well because B says the baby already has more clothes than he does!

Babies are very exciting news, but so are weddings! This Sunday was a cold, rainy day so I did what any lazy 25 year old would do... I stayed in, did laundry and watched movies. While flipping through the channels, I noticed that one of my favorite movies was on: 27 Dresses. As we allllll know... I happen to love weddings and anything that has to do with weddings so (as I've mentioned here, here and here), needless to say, I watched it from start to finish and loved every minute. It also got me all reved up for my sister K's wedding; for the venues, the cake and... the dresses... oh the dresses. I have no idea what K has in mind for colour scheme, or time of year even, mainly because we have to hold off on planning until Mama H is home, but that doesn't mean we can't browse :) and boy, have I browsed...

Despite the fact that I prefer longer dresses for Bridesmaids (as you will notice from my choices), this Aidan Mattox Light Mink Cowl Back Sequin Tulle Party Dress is so so so pretty. I love the sparkle because it isn't over done and, though the colour would look better with a tan... it would suit any hair colour. 

Ok, so I may love this Badgley Mischka Buttercup Silk Chiffon Embellished Gown because I could never wear it with my hair colour but hey... they always say you want what you can't have no? Either way, I think this dress is absolutely darling. 

Now my love for this dress MAY have something to do with the fact that navy is my all-time favourite colour, but it could also be because this Badgley Mischka Navy Tiered Silk Chiffon Beaded Side Strapless Gown is simply gorgeous. Unfortunately, it's sold out online... I wonder why?!? 

Again, I'm not in love with short dresses for a the bridesmaids, but maybe it's because it's navy that I really like this Badgley Mischka Navy Shirred and Beaded Jersey Strapless Cocktail dress.. but it could also be the detail. 

Now, I know this isn't necessary a dress that would be my first pick off the rack... but... something about it struck me as being very pretty... and I think it would look lovely next to a crisp white wedding dress. So, this Kay Unger Brown Sugar Silk Jersey Criss Cross Dress is still in my top faves. 
This dress, which happens to be in one of K's favourite colors, is tied with the long navy Badgley Mischka in my books. I love how this blue is the perfect shade and how the little sparkle draws the eye in without being too much. My second vote is definitely going towards this Badgley Mischka Violet Silk Chiffon Embellished Sleeveless Gown

Though it's fun to look and give my opinion... it's just that to me; fun. And I will wear whatever dress my big sis picks out for me... even if it's an awful seafoam coloured off the shoulder mess... because that's what sisters do :) I can't wait for all the wedding planning to start, especially since it will be a time of happiness when our whole family will be together again. But, until then, we keep our mom and dad in our thoughts and hearts and we can't wait to share in all the excitement once they are home. Until next time. 

With Love,
