How do you wear this? / by Christina Rosalie

So, in a month we'll be heading to Spain for a friend's wedding. Have I told you that? I'm so excited. It will be my first time since 1997 being overseas. Holy shit. I was 19 when I left, after having spent a year in Germany (also the year I set my hair on fire on my birthday.)

Anyhoo, I'm trying to find a dress for a very formal, large, Spanish wedding. I like dresses like these, that are halter tops--like this one. But I can never figure out how the hell I'm supposed to wear them, really. I mean come on, only perky 19 year olds, can go without support in such a dress. And if you beg to differ, let me just say one word: breastfeeding.

Okay, so now that we're on the same page, how does one go about wearing such a dress? What secret undergarments actually work with an open backed sheer-fabric dress?

I know, not my typical post. But see, I promised, I'm going to try to post more, so this is what you get. Run-ons and random clothing questions.

Also, on an entirely other note:

Bean is cureently asleep on one of those giant beanbags in our bedroom (which, by the way, are way flatter and less poufy than they appear in the picture.) I'm trying to get him to stop sneaking into our room the minute we say goodnight and come downstairs--because, though I don't mind him coming into our room in the middle of the night, I do rather mind not being able to go to sleep spooning with DH. So my newest plan is to get him to at least sleep in his own space--in our room. He seems happy as a clam. Sound asleep, tucked under a comforter, and snoring away.
