Glee Finale Spoiler Alert!


In today’s UsWeekly Daily Newsletter, Glee stars Lea Michele and Cory Monteith were razzi-snapped in their costumes while getting ready to shoot the show’s finale!

You love Lea’s dress, you say? Well, she’s wearing none other than a Unique Vintage Exclusive! (Apparently, the wardrobe department embellished our Red Sweet as Peach Pie Strapless Chiffon Swing Dress with some black halter straps, bow and a belt).

That fantastic black crinoline peaking through Lea’s skirt is from UV, too! We’re psyched to see the finale!

White Wedding


I had a woman call today to price a few of our designer wedding gowns.  Most of the time, I assume they are pricing out the dresses just to see if it is remotely in their price range.  While we don’t offer multi- thousand dollar gowns, and I am no Vera, we still offer expensive wedding gowns.

Brides are finicky creatures. I have encountered a few in my short time here that range from raging type-A to raging beauty queen; you know, the type that giggle after each word?  I am perky, but lord.

The woman and I do the usual wedding dress tango, she gives me an item number, I tell her the price.  Pretty standard procedure.  She then proceeds to tell me that she is not really a girly girl, and that she would get married in red if she could.  I instantly laugh because honestly, I applaud her for wanting to have a wedding her way; that is how it should be.  If you want to get married dressed as a banana, then you damn well should.

She then tells me that her future wife wants her to be the girly one, and pictured her soon to be bride in a form of ivory on their big day.  I was caught a little off guard.  And then suddenly, I found myself instantly so proud of her, and so happy for her.  Here we were, carrying on; doing the same wedding dress tango.  Just like I do with everyone else.  She tells me that she has been putting off the dress hunt because she is not your average size 4, and that she is really more excited about being married than some silly dress.

We talked a little while longer, and then I wished her good luck on her wedding and we hung up.  I treated this as any other inquisitive bride, because it did feel so normal.  Same bride problems, same bride opinions.  But a much different outcome.

Gay marriage is at the forefront of conversations, and are no longer just this pipe dream.  Real people, making real phone calls about real wedding dresses.  It made it so much more real for me.
