Mildred & Co. Why I Love It + Why I Needed It Back in 2004…

Mildred & Co. Why I love it + Why I needed it back in 2004…The whole gift giving/receiving shenanigans can be a bit of a nightmare when it comes to weddings. A couple who already live together run the risk of ending up with a whole lot of goodies (regardless of how beautiful they are) which they a. don't need or b. don't have room for. If you are a guest, you probably don't want to be hassling the couple about what they need or want, and in both cases the idea of spending too little or too much on an inappropriate or unpractical gift can be daunting for everyone. I would know...

For my best friends wedding I commissioned a painting. So far so good. Due to artistic delay (because it seems 6 months to paint it wasn't enough) not only did I NOT get to see it before the wedding, but when I snuck it away from the present pile and ripped off the paper (after being warned by family that it probably wasnt the painting I had in mind) I discovered it was black and yellow (instead of black and white) and my friend was sporting both an absurdly large forearm and a very distinct monobrow. Not cool.

After spending all my savings on this painting, I tried to slimline her arm and artistically pluck her mono brow myself, and after hours of trying to fix the unfixable, I thought to hell with it and bought her a very cute seafolly bikini for her honeymoon. Sadly I will always be remembered as the Maid of Honor who bought her best friend and husband an unflattering painting and a bikini for their wedding. Sorry.

Call me old-fashioned but regardless of my gift giving disaster, asking for money is not my style, so when Milly Nolan launched MILDRED & CO., I felt like finally somebody was on the same page.
