I'm going to Kelowna for K's wedding this weekend. My dress? My bridesmaid dress? DOES NOT FIT. We ordered the dresses back in January. Since then, Stella has come into my life and my daily level of activity has shot way up and my ability to snack has decreased. This has resulted in some very satisfying weight loss. Unfortunately, when I lose weight I lose it in my upper body (read: boobs and belly.) The dress is strapless. I tried it on last night to see if a new strapless bra is required or if the one I've got will work with the dress. Turns out that what I require is some new boobies. New, bigger boobies. By Saturday. How else do you hold up a strapless dress? I've never worn a strapless dress before. Right now the dress sits halfway down my chest. It is unwearable. There is no stretch to the material (I have no idea what the fabric is - some sort of shiny bridesmaid dress fabric. In ice blue. I don't want to talk about it.) There's not enough time to get it altered by a real tailor, so my plan is to get my Mom to safety pin it (I cannot be trusted with pointy objects, especially if I'm trying to pin something I'm wearing at the time) and hope it doesn't look too silly. Another thought I had is to try the double-sided tape that fancy ladies use to tape their low-cut tops to their chests to preserve their modesty. Has anyone used this before? I don't even know where I would buy it. I leave in 3 days and this needs to be resolved before then or K will kick my ass.
Oooh, also? I am driving up without Shawn (he's flying up on Saturday to avoid all the rehearsal / last day craziness) which means that I get to listen to my music for 5 straight hours. I need some roadtrip music suggestions. It's got to be upbeat enough that I don't fall asleep (I'm leaving really early Friday morning) but not too upbeat (because I can't afford any speeding tickets.)
