Dress Deal... What do you think?

Well even with the reaction at home I got a little bit of shopping in...my goal was to find a dress that is suitable to wear to the wedding. It's a wedding on the beach, with a reception to follow at a local downtown restaurant. I consider both the bride and groom to be people who are young preppy professionals, so I'm assuming the atmosphere will reflect their style.

CONFESSION... I am NOT good with fashion stuff. I wear clothes that I like, that are comfortable and that I "hope" look ok on me (hahaha). So I asked the sales associate about what to wear and she suggested something casual but nice...hmmm??? I need more like "this is good, this is good, this is not good"....

Anyway, I looked around around and found a couple things I liked but were too fall/winter or too old for me... then I found the clearance rack LOL and this....


So the original price was $72.... and I bought it for a whopping $10!!! BUT......


Do you really see me wearing this dress with everyone else wearing solid colors??

I think you should wear it!
Black or navy heels would look great!

I like it. I am terrible at "fashion" too. When I go shopping for me (once every so many years) I find that everything looks too old or too young. Where's that balance. I've considered taking someone that I trust with me, or someone that I like their style. I don't know "my style".

The dress is perfect! It will look so pretty on you and is just right for a wedding or special occassion. If it gets cool find a simple wrap to wear with it. You will be beautiful. Have fun and I can't wait to see the pics of the entire family dolled up.Drive safely home and have fun.

You'll want to use simple accessories since the pattern is bold. I'd recommend silver or black jewelry if you've got it. A black wrap would definitely look awesome and black strappy sandals or slides would complete it. I hope you guys have a great time and if you ever need fashion advice, I am here for you!!

Love you , Dorian!! Always looking out for me... still :)

Thanks guys! I think I'll wear this dress tonight for the rehearsal. And then I found another $10 dress at Catos this afternoon... so I'll wear that tomorrow!!

I found a little black barelo (sp?) "jacket" at Catos incase I get cold... so we'll see... I'm writing this before I'm dressed and I brought a long some of my fav dresses (just in case)... so who knows what I'll wear now...too many choices:)
