The Scene
With his mama's funeral behind him, Flower is starting to feel like himself again. I know because he sent me an email today with this subject line: Helpful site for determining if you have swine flu. This was the link he sent:

I laughed so hard that I forwarded it to a few friends. Including Fancypants. Thought she could use a laugh right about now. Never expected the response I'd get.

She called to tell me they are officially postponing the wedding in Puerto Vallarta! WAH! They made the decision primarily because her dad has cancer and his doctors have advised him against getting anywhere near LAX, much less traveling to the country where all this madness began. Heartbreaking.

Thankfully, all the vendors, airlines and hotels are being cool - waiving fees and such. We'll all just rebook for February. And Mr. Roboto and Fancypants are still having a casual ceremony that they'd planned this weekend to make things legal. Excited for that. After all a wedding isn't about a big party, it's about celebrating two people. Two people that despite all odds found each other. Two people that despite life's roadblocks keep moving forward together, hand in hand.

The Outfit
Forever 21 dress

The Grade

The Scene
Still feeling inspired by all the beautiful peoples at the Chloe party last week.

Loved seeing all the white runway looks interpreted for the red carpet.

Bought today's linen dress oh about 6 years ago. Comfortable and easy summer dress.

Lived in it that first summer.

As any bride can attest, it's difficult to find a white dress that's truly flattering

Think the key is a fluid silhouette

Case in point: Mr. Roboto and Fancypants on Halloween ;)

Unless you are as enviably svelte as Fashion Toast or Thumbelina

You need a white dress to fall instead of hug

Creating length is also important when wearing all white. Dug out these so-fugly-they-are-cute espadrilles to do just that.

My inspiration: Chloe again.

Nothing like little bows on your ankles to get you through a day of unexpected challenges.

Awww, thanks for the compliment. I love white dresses too, although I have to be careful. (You know I ate spaghetti with that dress on and got some on it?! Thankfully it all came out. I know--I'm nuts.) Too bad about the wedding, but I guess it's better to be safe than sorry. You look cute as always.

Wow - what an ordeal indeed. Having planned a destination wedding myself I can't image the stress Fancypants must have been under. Thank goodness her vendors were so cool.
