HNT-Out of the Closet or What I Did for Love

paint



Earlier this week I mentioned my closet contains a periwinkle blue sausage casing bridesmaid dress and white satin corset (to squeeze into the sausage casing)I wore in my best friend's wedding. In addition to all that I paid $50 to have my hair done AND I wore make-up.

I told my dear friend it was obvious I loved her more than I loved my husband because for my own wedding I braided my own hair, wore no make-up, and wore my regular underwear. I'd only go to the higher level of expense and trouble if I really loved someone. Hahaha But hey, the bride calls the shots, right? It was her day and I was happy for her and happy to share in her special day.

I had nothing else for this week so you get Lime as a Blue Sausage. Maybe one day I'll get brave enough to show the corset...

Happy HNT

You ARE a good friend, Limey, and you looked lovely.
But seriously, why DID you save the dress?

Sexy Duet said...

Ah, the joys of being a bridesmaid - it takes a good friend to be one and have the relationship remain intact after the wedding. No doubt that you are a special friend. Happy HNT!

Lime blue suits you. You look stunning and I'm sure everyone else thought so too.

lovely...how long did you wear the dress? all the way through the reception or did you rip it off and wash your face before hitting the dance floor?

Heather said...

Last weekend, along with a few other guys, I dragged my friend up north to a weekend at the cottage filled with golf and watersports (not THOSE kind) and beer - none of which I would normally do on my own, as he is getting married next month. I told him at the time he's lucky I like him. :P

That said however, you look much better in the dress and all dolled up than I did after 3 days in the wilderness without a shower *shudder*.

Happy HNT!

Schadeboy said...

Of course, the question that obviously crops up from this post is what kind of underwear you wore for your best friend?

Happy HNT!

Lime, I clicked on the pic to see a blow-up version, but flickr first made me log in, then said your pic was private. Not complaining, just explaining.

Like the makeup BTW.

airplanejayne said...

Lime -- as you requested.....here is you...according to me!

Logical loner
Cute, Quiet and awesomely aware leader
Who uses both her brain and common sense
Sexy barefootin’ bottom
Submissive vanilla puppy
Cute zipline jock in blue jeans
Spontaneously window shopping
Tender Teddy Bear shooting tequila on sleek satin sheets

SCH said...

Nice dress and such a good friend you are! I vote for the white corset next week... :)

Happy HNT!

Moosekahl said...

HHNT!

robmcj said...

lime - I have the same desire, but in a bath of custard.

The Lily said...

I know exactly how you feel, since I am doing the same thing right now. But since I am the only bridesmaid... it's been less traumatic. It does look lovely on you.

HHNT!
