Thursday was Jason Matlo‘s birthday (I won’t be number specific here…) and he threw a party on a rooftop in a stunning apartment in Gastown. The orders were “dress to kill” so I used the opportunity to wear one of my fancy dresses. I have two dresses with trains, both of which are quite nice but have never been worn. So I thought this would be a good opportunity, since I knew I wouldn’t be walking around too much and I could trust the crowd not to step all over my dress.
The dress is a bias cut, beaded Jenny Packham gown, and I wore it with some Chanel skin art (tattoos.) There were only a few photos of my dress in full, but they didn’t look good, so I’m afraid you can only see the upper half. Take my word for it, it is a beautiful gown! But I should also say that wearing a train is very hard work, and I salute al the women who manage it with grace. I am glad I wore a mini at my wedding.
