It has been a crazy week… I am exhausted and its just Thursday. Tomorrow is my cousin’s wedding day. Two years ago when she got engaged to her longtime high school boyfriend, I was away at the “spa”( I really have avoided discussing this part of my life for the fear that my being honest with you all would in some way make me weak, exposed I guess)
. I was away in treatment for almost a year in 2014. I am in recovery from an eating disorder, drug-abuse, and the list goes on and on. My life is extremely remarkable today, having come so far from the person I was years ago, I was so afraid to just be honest and accept that I am who I am and nothing is wrong with that! I haven’t posted under My “Semi” Real Life in months because I found I was holding back big parts of my life. As much as this blog is dedicated to fashion, I JC Culley-Mastro am essentially the Culley Committee and I want to be honest about my life.
So when my cousin was engaged in the summer of 2014 I was away in treatment. I was completely disconnected from having any communication with my family and didn’t find out about the proposal until weeks after. It was so hard because all I wanted to do was call my cousin and congratulate her, tell her how happy I was that this was happening!
Well, two years later here we are. The big day is here, today the “perfect couple” as my family sees them, is getting married. Yesterday at the rehearsal dinner, Chelsea wore this absolutely TDF white dress and a pair of shimmery pumps that made me reminiscent of Carrie Bradshaw’s dress in the opening scene of Sex&the City 2. Her gown is a show stopper. I am wearing a Ralph Lauren slim fit tux that I actually really die for. Pictures to follow!
