About Me:

Hey everyone, I am Cathryn. I am going into my 5th year of pharmacy at Butler University. I am also working toward a minor in Science, Technology & Society! In my spare time, I enjoy hanging out with friends and writing. I've been working on NaNoWriMo and am hoping to be published at some point in the near future as well. Most of the time you can catch me studying in the library or browsing the Internet. Oh, and did I mention that I got married last summer?

The moment you’ve all been waiting for…


These are from David’s Bridal so I guess this is a free plug for them. Now, way back after I got engaged in January, I pretty much immediately went on their site to look at dresses. I’ve got this idea in my head that I want a dress with off the shoulder straps, kind of like Belle’s dress in Beauty and the Beast. Yeah, I went there.

All I know is, I really, really really don’t want a strapless dress. I don’t. That’s too many pull ups and push ups to get my arms to look okay to stand alone. Just, no. Also, everybody’s doing it. I despise that. :P I’m a rebel.

This is a dress I found online. I love it. It’s also relatively cheap. I had a tiny sliver of hope that just by walking into David’s Bridal, I could magically find this dress and try it on. Unfortunately, they didn’t have it. Bummer.

So these are the dresses I tried on.

The real question is, what am I doing with my arms?

I loved this dress. I tried on one before that I thought was plain, so my saleswoman went and got this one. It has the longest train in their collection, which I enjoy. It’s also sparkly. Sparkle sparkle.

It was a little itchy.

This is the same dress with a jacket. I don’t know if I’m sold on the jacket, mostly because it was itchy.

Everything's yellow. Awesome.

I apologize for my camera’s lack of color sense. So this dress was supposed to be ivory because I wanted to see if I like the color on me. But after I put it on, the saleswoman was like “Whoops! That’s off-white.” Same diff? I don’t know. Anyway, since my camera doesn’t understand color, then it doesn’t make a bit of difference.

This dress is less lacy and more bustle-y and sparkly. I like the waist area on dress #1 more, but I liked this one because it’s a PRINCESS DRESS. hee.

Anyway, it was a lot of fun. I love playing dress-up. I’m going to a bridal exhibit at the Cincinnati Art Museum on Friday, then Saturday I’m actually going to a bridal show. Can my wedding be this summer?

    Great pictures. They both look beautiful on you. No joke I almost bought the dress in the first picture. It was between that one and the one I actually bought for my wedding. You look amazing in both!
