Would you be brave enough to cut up your wedding dress and transform it into a little more wearable? Wedding dresses are becoming more extravagant (including the actual event!) and unfortunately, put away never to be worn again, unless if you are going to dye it and wear it at another formal do (very unlikely in my case). In Boardwalk Empire literally every male character can be seen wearing a three piece suit at one time or another. If you’re a man, this will be the very foundation of your attire. However, not all three piece suits are created equally. For instance, if you’re going for a wealthy, no-class gangster, you’ll want plenty of bright, garish colors and those pinstripes I mentioned earlier (these are for the street guys who have stumbled into wealth, without ever having learned what tastefulness is). For sheer class, you’ll want to take your cues from Arnold Rothstein’s wardrobe, which is more elegant without ever being overly showy. For a plain old street hood, keep things simple with solid colors — browns and blacks — and very little of the accessories that I’ll be mentioning later on, further down this list. Style—Is it fashion-forward but not too trendy? You want this piece to last for years. Limo – service for a night. Leave this gift open ended. The bride can use the service whenever she desires too? If you’re lucky, she will use it on girls day out. For shorter women, you will go for the more lengthening dress silhouettes, like the sheaths, empires, mermaids, and A-lines. Long slim skirts will make your legs look a lot longer. Choose a waistline that lengthens your torso like a dropped waist, princess seaming, or even an asymmetrical look. They had spent long periods apart because of his job, and she says writing letters discussing their future together had helped with the separation. I had ordered it custom made and it fits like a glove except for the bust area which is a little big (it could’ve been my fault as I may have measured a bit on the bigger side)…but this is an easy alteration and I’m not concerned. I am not a huge fan of the flower on the back but it can easily be removed (I wasn’t fond of it in the advertised photo either but figured I could remove it if needed). The buttons are a bit loose but that is nothing a little thread and a needle can’t fix if you want reinforcements (they’re only decorative so they won’t be pulling or anything).

Many biker weddings are outside in a park; so outdoor woodsy area décor works well. Look at rustic country themes. You can use some of these ideas and adapt them to a biker wedding theme.

It was 10% off (because trunk show) and I was very, very tempted since it gave me that skinny, UES, ice queen vibe that I’ve always found highly attractive. The best example I could give here is using a shell type design on the bass area. If you have a well-formed and good size breast, better not go for this design. While the shell type highlights the bass area, it will actually conceal the contour of your breast. That means, instead of revealing your beauty, you are actually hiding it.
