Being Cinderella?

I'm trying to enjoy the very last days of my summer vacation, but the thought of reality coming to bite me in the ass at 8am in the morning scares the hell out of me. I managed to get a whole lot of things done today as well, like going to the tailor with my gorgeous blue dress. See, curious as it may seem the dress was actually too small for me! I was thinking of exchanging it for a size bigger, but when I e-mailed their customer service I was told that the next size would be 4 centimeters more around hip, waist and bust. Since that was completely out of the question, I decided to take matters into my own hands. It was a little too small yes, but I wasn't looking for a tent! So, I found a tailor in town, and presented my idea about making a slit down the back of the dress, and replacing the fabric with satin ribbons. At first the tailor didn't sound too enthusiastic about doing it my way, but then he said that he could try and then make some smaller changes if it didn't work the way I thought it would. Fantastic! He even showed me a wedding dress with the exact same back as I wanted on my dress, so I'm positive there was no misunderstanding. God, I hope it'll be as I imagine.. if not, well.. then I'm without a dress for the wedding in September.

I also managed to cross something else I've been postponing for too long now off my list. I actually went to talk to the tattoo artist I've been wanting to see since last year's Tattoo Convention here in Trondheim. Apparently not a minute too soon! After looking, looking and looking some more through the calendar they managed to squeeze me in in December. Yes, on the 4th of December. I'm finally going to get my finger tattoos fixed, and I have another idea brewing in the pit of my stomach. OK, I'm lying. I've been thinking about it for a long time, but I'm not going to spill just yet. December was actually quite suitable, as it gives me some time to save up the money I'm going to need for this next tattoo escapade of mine. So now I have another thing to look forward to!

Don't you just love it when the to-do-list shrinks, while the looking-forward-to-list expands? Grin

  1. Ok, this is probably a really lame question, but.. Do we actually have tailors in Trondheim? I need to get out moreRazz

    On the other hand, it’s great that we do have tailors, or else you wouldn’t have been able to wear the dress that I’m anxious to see (hint hint pix!) Smile

    Oooh, another tattoo! Grin

    I am actually thinking about getting a nose piercing. But with fall upon us, I think I’ll wait. It’s not exactly a brilliant idea to mix piercings and swineflu-enhanced boogers.

  2. Actually I found at least two tailors in town, right beside each other (at and near Byhaven). I didn’t think of looking for one myself, but I had a pair of jeans with a busted zipper, and I asked at BikBok if they had some way of fixing it for me when the salesperson told me that they had an arrangement with a tailor who would repair it for 80,- NOK. There will be pictures of the dress, and possibly me as well, when I can wear it without looking like Miss Elizabeth Swann in Pirates of the Caribbean (blue in the face from lack of oxygen).. I would kinda match the dress though!

    Piercings are really not my thing, I have my ears pierced (my parents made me when I was three) and that’s it for me. Other than the fact that I don’t like piercings, I’m deadly scared of needles! Did that make any sense at all, seeing that I already have like.. four tattoos? Anyway, I’m really looking forward to my next one, as this is going to be the biggest and most extraordinary one until now. Am I making you curious? Razz
