White Dress - Artists Monument NYC

Disabled List (DL): 
When a player is injured a team can place him on the disabled list. A player placed on the DL must remain there for at least 15 days.

So really funny (at least I think so) story about today's pictures. On Sunday, Tracy and I met up in the morning to take some blog photos, as we do every weekend. I was changing into my second look in the bathroom (the dress I'm wearing today) and pulled it over my tush and heard a little pop. Well it just so happens the zipper broke and the dress no longer would zip up. Fun times, right?!

I specifically wore this dress to shoot in front of this Artists Monument on the West Side -- thinking white would be perfect, which it was. So I accepted that I missed my opportunity to shoot in this dress and location.

But if you know me, I'm pretty out there. I do weird things, but I always have a way of making it work. I was set on shooting this outfit and the lighting was perfect. Now was my time to make it happen.

While on the West Side (hidden behind this monument) I threw the broken dress over the dress I was wearing and turned into a magician as I took off my previous dress without showing anything. So now I have this white dress on with a broken zipper and this is where things get (more) interesting.

One of the hangers I brought with me for this shoot had two skirt clips on it and I decided to hand them to Tracy (who's laughing through this whole mess) and told her to clip the dress where she could. It was tight around the chest to begin with (big boob problems) so she clipped them around the waist and I used the closer at the top of my dress to keep the top together. Then voila -- If I didn't turn around, I had myself a dress! (Documented picture below)

Anyway, I love this dress. It's from a store in Lexington called Calypso Boutique. I'm really in love with white dresses and I'm pretty sure I need more in my closet. I know the dress is sold out online, but at the bottom I've listed some other great little white dresses!
