HK Bridal Special: Chapter 1

You know when I said in my profile that I have an aversion to puffy wedding dresses, please allow me to clarify. I meant puffy Hong Kong wedding dresses. Like this one:



Or this one:


And especially this one, ruched for her pleasure:


The puffier it is, the easier it is to misjudge the length of fabric needed:


I don't approve of puffiness masquerading as sartorial tourniquets either:


And certainly not as twin air bags:


Oh mine sides, how they ache so. Not from mirth mind you, but from a tulle-induced peptic ulcer. There is a street on the Kowloon side called Kimberly Road where the frills, the froufrou, the ruffles and the puffiness stretch as far as the eye can see. If you happen to be in the area, I would be delighted to explore this tawdry trail with you but we mustn't linger long. The sales assistants might mistake our curiosity for keen interest and drag us in kicking and screaming. Oh god, please no, don't take me in there. I'm too young...I have family, I have friends....I have....TASTE!!

Blogs of the day: Tokyo Times and Macam-Macam are nominated in the best Japanese blog category and best Indonesian blog category of the Asia Blog Awards respectively.

I'm getting married in a Sean John tracksuit, mmm hmmm. Actually, I'll probably never get married considering that it's illegal in most of the US

The LBYB is shallow. Puffy dress or not, LBYB would not kick Rosemary (second from bottom) from his cave...

A white tracksuit for everyone in the bridal party - with "Pimps" written on the back for the groom's side and "Hos" written on the back for the bride's side!

Ha ha...Kimberly Road. We could try on wedding dresses and one of us could act like Carrie from Sex and the City the minute the fabric touches her skin.

Those dresses would be perfect for any woman who wants to look like Bridezilla on her wedding day...

And based on those gowns, I'd be terrified to see the matching wedding-night lingerie! :P

You might already know this, but there used to be a site devoted entirely to exposing ugly wedding dresses. Good taste is apparently hard to come by.

I can't wait to go back to Honolulu in February...I'm sure I'll see at least half of these floating through the Royal Hawaiian. :) The Japanese "Western" wedding dresses are very puffy and very poofy!

You have to admire the fact that the first three and the last of those excrescences are exhibited on mannequins that seem to represent women whose heads have exploded.
