This summer I have two weddings I am attending. I haven't been to a wedding in about 6 years. I don't want to buy another dress that I won't likely wear again. So I want something that feels fancy but you can causal up for daily wear after. I tried in some stuff in Anthropoligie the other day. I loved a couple but I don't want to spend $200-300 on a dress! My wedding dress was only $300. The bride will be wearing tomato red to one of the weddings so that is off limits. I have looked at every single dress site I could think of. I didn't find a single one that fit my criteria and was affordable and that I LOVED! There were plenty I loved with a hefty price tag. I'd rather spend more on the shoes! I refuse to wear uncomfortable shoes.
I was looking for a dress that fit this criteria.
Not too fitted. I hope to be dancing and playing croquet in it.
Not too low cut. I don't want to have to wear a cami under it. I want to feel fancy and not show off my boobs.
Not too long or too short.
BREATHABLE. No polyester! (which a lot of the anthro dresses were lined in.)
Not over the top expensive.
Isn't a "red" dress. (of course all the ones I loved were red. Of course!)
Cause you don't just "need" a dress to wear, you "need" shoes! That all starts to add up.
So this is what I am thinking... Someone makes me the above dress (haven't figure out who yet). I want it with the sweetheart neckline and pockets!! I am thinking either the teal gingham in seersucker or the poppies fabric. Then some KorkEase sandals because I hear they are so comfortable and wearable! I have some from their Korks line and they are amazing.
Fancy and fun right? Both weddings are outdoors. I am thinking of making Dave a bow tie from the seersucker regardless.
Which is more Hillary the poppies or gingham?
I am leaning towards the poppies. because I am think of a ton of ways to wear it after and there a lot of colors to play off. and which shoes! Link me if you have another idea of shoes! MUST BE COMFY!
