details to come

Thank you to everyone who wrote in with their comments, or should I say, VOTES, on my last post. I had no idea there was such a range of opinions about legwear!

It must be stated that before seeing last week's Oprah show that brought my attention to the going bare option, I had been planning to wear very sheer black hosiery with my comfortable (yet chic) black velvet heels.

But, the more I thought about it, the more I became intrigued by the idea of bare legs. And then several of you, I believe Jilly was the first, suggested the idea of a spray tan to combat the white leg dilemma. So that's what I decided to do. Spray tan! There's a first for everything, isn't there?

Friday evening was my appointment and I chose the lightest shade possible. And the result was just what I was hoping to achieve. As the girl at the salon said, I looked just different enough that people might have wondered what the difference was, but it certainly didn't look like I had just gotten home from a trip to Jamaica. I do believe I had a glow.

So, anyway, I'll be back next time with a proper recap of the wedding. But the picture at the top is a little tease. These beautiful flowers were the centerpiece of each table at Brig & Dan's reception. Imagine this at the top of a beautiful candelabra, surrounded by towering tapers. Can you see it in your mind? It was gorgeous!!

More next time, but thank you again for speaking up last time. It was extremely helpful!

so what kind of spray tan did you get? I know some make me orange and I would love to do this for the wedding I am going to in May.

Kerry - I am not sure what I got. I just said I wanted the lighest color they had. I am very fair, so it wasn't a hard decision.

Sorry I don't have more details...but I will say that I was happy with the results.
