Today I'm going on my first business trip for this job, and my second business trip ever. My last job was in international public health, so I had hoped to get to travel abroad, but it didn't happen. And now that I work domestically, the only business trips I can hope to take are to meetings with clients in other US cities, which is where I'm headed today.
It's only one brief meeting tomorrow morning (and frankly, we're lucky we get to fly down the night before instead of getting up before dawn the day of to take the first flight out of here), but it will be the first night that Torsten and I have spent apart since I went to France without him, back in April. It will definitely be weird, probably more so for him, since he'll be in our apartment and our bed without me. But hopefully he'll look on the bright side and eat a delicious, cream-laden dinner, since I won't be there to cook a nice, healthy Weight Watchers meal. I mean, you have to find the silver lining in every situation, right?
Anyway, I'm actually excited about this meeting because it will be the first time I've met these clients in person after I've spent hours on the phone with them and many, many weeks writing a website for them. It will be really interesting to get to go over the whole thing in person with them and then create Round 2 of the website based on the feedback. Plus, supposedly we're going for sushi after the meeting. This is the type of client I like.
So I won't be posting tomorrow, which means that the wedding stuff I want to talk about is going to be discussed right now instead of waiting a day. I've been browsing wedding dresses online again, because I love wedding dresses and I'm not going down to North Carolina to look at the bridal superstore for several more weeks. I'm extremely impatient about that, because I'm really hoping to find a dress there that I like as much as the one I found a few weeks ago, but for half the price. So, I've been limiting myself to the websites of designers that the bridal superstore actually carries, and trying to find styles that appeal to me.
What's been jumping out to me is a cut that doesn't seem to have a consistent name, but basically strapless with a notched front. It's got a very 1950s feel to it, which I really like, and it feels very me. It's also attractive without being trampy (I hope), and a bit of a change from most strapless dresses. I found a dress with this style that I like a lot, except that it has a bow on it, which I would most likely want to have removed:
So what do you all think of this style, with the little V-shaped cutout at the neckline? Attractive, slightly retro glam, and a little bit different? Or just plain wrong?
