So last weekend was a whirlwind of sewing, fittings, and lots of talk of Mad Men. Amanda and her mom, Viena were in again for more dressmaking. The out of town bride is so intense for me, and I love it. It does take a few days to recover from it.
These women have lived such different lives than me, so it makes for great conversation. But most of all, they have the best attitudes. I love a person that can live so happily and appreciate the moment they are living. Boy, I sound corny, but you should hear them. This is why I love this job. I get to work with people during a happy and exciting time in their lives. Pretty cool.
Because of all of the talk of Mad Men, I think Amanda embodied Joan's spirit. She isn't built like Joan, (is anyone?) but she has the attitude. I am a strong believer that the bride has the power to make the dress much better just through wearing it well. Amanda will do that.
Disclaimer, Amanda will not be wearing the socks on the wedding day, but aren't they a great photo op?
