SLIDER

Arctic Princess

Ladies...prepare yourselves for a photo bombardment. 
We got the Msdressy gown photographed...in the snow.
Naturally, we got a little snap happy.
They all turned out so good, I just had to include the majority of them. I apologize in advance!



 Yes, I am certifiably crazy. It was a blistering 17 degrees out (can you hear the sarcasm dripping from my words?) when Kirsten and I went tromping out in the snow drifts. I wore this parka and had my dress bunched up mid waist as our feet sunk into the deep patches. But we eventually made it to the shooting location and I had to shed the coat. I'm certain the neighboring community heard my squeals as the chill hit my bare skin - but it was worth it. It was a race against the setting sun to capture these pictures! I really like how it added to the background though. The rich red adds a dramatic flair to this already-dramatic shoot.

So this is the gorgeous wedding dress from Msdressy. Yes, you read that right - wedding dress. Am I getting married anytime soon? No, not that I plan on at least. But when my eyes landed on this stunning, flowing gown, I couldn't bring myself to pick a different one. Hey, at least I'll be ready for the big day when it comes around! I love the high quality of it and how they tailored it to fit me perfectly. I sent over my measurements, and they got it right! The inside is lined with a silky material, and I really appreciate how there's a built-in bra. Definitely helpful for a strapless dress! I felt like a reigning princess of this abandoned corn field. Although with my new blunt bangs (I love them!), winged eyeliner, and statement necklace, Kirsten said I looked like an Egyptian, so maybe I'm just confused and landed in the wrong country. 

I'm sure the pictures speak for themselves, so I'll leave it at that. And there are plenty to talk for me, aren't there? Haha, once again, sorry for the photo-overload, but this was my absolute favorite shoot yet, and I had to share!

If you would like to get a dress from Msdressy yourself, go enter the giveaway I'm holding here - you could win an $80 voucher!

Casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.

A wedding dress!! WEDDING DRESS! Linda, I love you. I love that you picked a wedding dress. This dress is so pretty on you, and one day, you're gonna make such a super pretty bride, oh my goodness. Or at least a beautiful fairy princess, as you are here. :)

So yeah, these pictures are um GORGEOUS. No apologies for the photo overload--I enjoyed scrolling through them (a few times, heheh). The light in those first few with the light touching you and your dress just barely is so gorgeous. And the one where you're flipping your hair! So so so pretty, eep.

your dress is so stunning and so are all these pictures! I absolutely love the snowy background and the sunset--EVERYTHING IS GORGEOUS :) That dress is so flowy and it looks really awesome with the white statement necklace (and woah it's a wedding dress?! Awesome!) And hehehe I definitely like the hairflips, very cool. And oh my gosh, you have blunt bangs now. It looks amazing, I really really really like it.

Wow, your title nailed it. You look just like an Arctic Princess can not get over how beautifully these photos came out! They're just stunning like the setting sun in the background and the white dress in the snow is just all sorts of wow. These pictures are just amazing! (I think the snow is so worth the cold, I think these are hands down my favorite photos of yours, this looks just like a professional shoot.) This wedding dress looks pretty amazing on you, I love how its a little non traditional so you can play around with it not looking too bridal.

Oh, and your new bangs! I was looking at these pictures wondering if you'd just been clipping them back or if you'd gotten them cut, girl, blunt bangs were created for you! They look killer on you and frame your beautiful eyes perfectly.

wow!! gorgeous Linda! my fave outfit so far! LOVE the effect of sunset as your background! the white dress is so perfect for you!

OH MY GOSH. Could you, this dress, or these photos be anymore gorgeous?? Seriously, I'm in love with all of this. I don't blame you for picking out a wedding dress, it's so pretty. So is the necklace. AND I love your bangs. Okay, I'm done ranting about how much I love you.

Lauren said...

okay, i love these pics! You look so beautiful and they all are really creative and artistic. I really need to check out msdressy! What are you wearing that dress for..any occasion thats not a wedding? :P

Nathyness said...

No need to apologize! They're fantastic! It would have been a shame not to share this many.

It's such a beautiful dress. Great job selecting this one. But I never would have guessed it was a wedding dress. It doesn't scream "wedding" to me (I'm a big-poufy, sweetheart neckline or mermaid dress kind of gal), so you can totally get away with it. So clever of you.

As for your suggestion about blunt bangs, I've had those before too. They were a lot of fun. I felt like Anne Hathaway in The Devil Wears Prada, haha. But with my hair, they're even MORE high maintenance than side bangs. So I opted for side bangs once again this time. :)

That dress is gorgeous, I really like all of the small accessories that you added in, making it less wedding like, and more ethereal. I can't believe that you were in a strapless dress in 17 egress weather, I would've passed out!

I can see why you couldn't decide on photos- these are all so stunning! I love those rare moments when you catch the sun at just the perfect time, and the stars align in perfect harmony for fantastic pictures! Plus the white dress against the white snow is just the bomb.
