The Sheelin

So I got back a few weeks ago from a great (but rainy) trip to Ireland. I went with my mother for a two week stay, full of her family and the royal family. That’s right, I saw the Queen! She and Prince Phillip were in Northern Ireland and she was adorable! She had on a beautiful wedge-wood blue coat with a matching hat and it just popped!

But that isn’t what I wanted to share with you! We went to this little antique lace shop and museum in Bellanaleck, Enniskillen Co. Fermanagh called The Sheelin. It was AMAZING! Everything in the store was antique Irish lace that the owner has been collecting for years. It was all gorgeous and I wish I was getting married so that I could get something to incorporate in my big day!

The museum in the back was gorgeous! There were all lace dresses, parasols, veils and even a shawl that was in the family of Lady Diana. If you are ever in Northern Ireland (which I would highly recommend doing) check this place out!

It Can Only Get Better…

First day of work yesterday at David’s Bridal.

NOTE TO SELF: Never wear heals to work where your job consists of walking around the whole store carrying dresses that weight the same as a large child.

Other then the pain in my feet, my day was pretty good. First days are always no good no matter where it is. I am only hoping it will get better from here.

But I saw SO MANY BEAUTIFUL GOWNS!!!! Most of which were by designers Vera Wang and my favourite Oleg Cassini :) Most of Vera Wang’s dresses from the White Collection were Ball Gowns with big shirts and lots of flower designs. Something that I do think is very pretty but just not something I want to wear on my Big Day. What I like about Oleg Cassini’s gowns is that most of them are covered with LACE! I just love lace :) AND THIS GOWN! I would definitely get it in Ivory. Only because I just don’t like the intense hue of white most dresses come in.

FYI for ladies who LOVE this dress as much as I do, the Style # is CRL277 :) Just trying to be helpful !!!
