My wife and I made a very early decision to not spend a lot of money on the wedding. Neither of us had a lot of money and our parents were not well off. It seemed that depleting the savings we did have and mortgaging our future for a ceremony and party was not the way to go. We did a simple civil ceremony and followed with a celebratory dinner at a nice, but not insanely expensive restaurant. We then hosted a few simple dinner parties with close friends. Very low...

Great fabric, but a 48" chest is consistent with a 56R and not a 52R. Also, European sizes are not necessarily an exact match. I find a Caruso 52 R to be more of a 41R American and a 54R to be closer to 43R. Less the case with other Italian designers.

They are everywhere. They can't be bargained with. They can't be reasoned with. They don't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And they absolutely will not stop, ever. That said, I have taken to sticking my new purchases into the freezer or having them dry cleaned before I take them into the apartment. I also no longer do thrift stores. I do not believe I am preventing the inevitable, just delaying it.
