The Edgewater Hotel, Seattle
Alright, lovelies, I am in need of your help. One of my oldest and dearest friends is getting married in three weeks and I have somehow neglected to get a dress for the wedding yet. I was distracted shopping for other things, I suppose, but also, I have been having a hard time finding a dress I love. I swear, this always happens. When you’re on a mission to find something, you won’t be able to find it anywhere. When you’re not looking, there it is, calling your name.
So, I’ve been doing some browsing and have found some cute options, but can’t make up my mind—so, this is where you come in. Take a look at some of these dresses that have caught my eye and let me know in the comments which one(s) are your favorite and what you think. I love the idea of a bright, colorful dress, but I also love the idea of a totally glam and sophisticated look. Without further ado, the choices…
I love the way green looks against my skin when I’m tanned and sun-kissed, so maybe a jewel or pastel shade of green? I will be at the family lake house for the week prior to the wedding, so hopefully I will be coming home bronzed and glowing. I’m worried the one on the left is too bridemaid-y and the one in the middle is maybe too long? Not sure if tea-length will be flattering, but it is romantic! The one on the right…too plain?
My favorite summer shades are the bright, punchy oranges, pinks and corals. I could go more glamorous with the pink, but is it too Real Housewives of Orange County? The orange is adorable, but I fear it may be too casual.
Perhaps a dress in blue? The one on the left is actually one of the front-runners for me – I feel like its sophisticated, feminine and still sexy. The one in the middle is a gorgeous color—Tiffany blue!—but I do wonder if its too plain. Its a beautifully made dress, but it reminds me a little bit of something I’d wear to the office. Finally, maybe something in a fun print like the one on the right?
Lastly, the neutral palette. The pink and cream is super fun and playful. The sequins are glamorous and sexy—its hard for me to resist sequins. The one on the right, is my other favorite but it may be a little out of my price range. Its just so sophisticated—Breakfast at Tiffany’s with a fashion forward twist. Then again, a feathered skirt feels much more fall-ish than summer.
Okay, lay it on me, lovelies. Which ones are your favorite? Leave a comment below and let me know which one(s) you think would be good for the wedding.
