A now for a break in our regularly-scheduled programming




Because sometimes beauty manifests itself in ways other than perfectly crumbling chateau walls.

Or as the poet Michael K of DListed [NSFDelicateSensibilities] put it:

"If you're getting married soon and want to be the true definition of understated elegance, make sure your dress is covered in leopard print, hot pink ruffles and tacky ass crystals. Make sure you look like a crash site where a bus carrying child beauty queens smashed into a semi carrying fine goods from Z Gallerie."

Raina, not only do we share tastes on home decor, but we both love the divine Michael K as well! Be still my heart!

Raina Cox said...

Madam Pince - He is a god.

Jen said...

Uhhhhh.... I should be thankful I have never heard of this... this... is it a TV show? WTF is it? I don't even know what to say about that "dress".

aka: When Whores Get Married

DaniBP said...

I'm too scared to watch it Raina!

Raina Cox said...

DaniBP - You must! If only through your fingers as you cover your face in horror.

eddielicious said...

Don't forget the missing tooth and faded hickey.....Cause a fresh hickey, now that would be tacky.

Raina Cox said...

eddielicious - I thought I spied two missing teeth. And was her middle-aged looking (but probably only 36 IRL) mother pregnant?

AmyHN said...

You have singlehandedly resurrected my insomnia.

Raina Cox said...

AmyHN - It's for the best, because those three (and the dog) would haunt your nightmares.

Bri@Meyouandawiener said...

I mainly watch this show because of the "ass beatings."
Dafuq she wearing?

stephanie hubbard said...

all that and I could'nt take my eyes off her missing teeth!!!

jason said...

Damn, and here I was thinking I had the only one!

There is nothing like pulling your wedding dress out of a half ripped corrugated cardboard box only to discover there are cut outs in the dress to show off your tummy tat. Wow that's every girls dream. Sigh.

yippee said...

I thought you liked DaniBP. Surely she has fainted.

5th and State said...

and let me guess, it is filmed in jersey

Gaia said...

Didn't Satre write a book about her? "Nausea"?

The Down East Dilettante said...

When I finally got my breath back, I thought---'hey, it's making her happy'. And, indeed beauty comes in many forms.

I'll still take the perfect crumbling chateau walls, but then, I never looked good in hot pink (my pale pink oxford button downs, that's another matter.

SGM said...

Glorious! What kind of accent is that? Also, is that a pregnant 50 year old?

Raina Cox said...

SGM - West Virginian Gypsy. I have no idea what's going on with Grandma Bun in the Oven.

Modern Country Lady said...

seems you have more fun car crash tv than we have in the UK.
At least I can read the comments, there is a whole new world opening here for me..
I will keep this stylish ensemble/ dress idea in mind for my next Vegas wedding hehehe

jtc said...

Now I have to watch this stupid show because I must get a look at the groom!

Annie Smith said...

Oh. Oh. Dear. At least she has company, the small hot pink ruffle wearing dog...I watched that literally speechless! Still speechless..

life, in small chunks said...

hehe! Now that was fun. Well, I guess every girl deserves to feel beautiful on her wedding day - and apparently this girl (and I do mean girl - what is she about 16?)does.

Barbara Meyers said...

did she get that dress at BHLDN? JK
for the record, that is her mother, no she is not pregnant but she did just get out of prison for fraud. they have matching missing teef

Raina Cox said...

Barbara Meyers - That woman is not pregnant?! Then she needs to get checked out for a tumor stat!

David said...

You know the West Virginia Board of Tourism is shitting themselves over this.

helent said...

I particularly love the feather duster masquerading as a bouquet - genius

Jessie said...

That dress is both trashy and tacky. Like most of you, I can't help but focus on her missing teeth! Yikes!
