As any woman knows, dress shipping can be a little stressful even under the best circumstances. My sister's wedding is rapidly approaching and so my sisters and I headed out to try on some pretty bridesmaid's dresses. Juliana wanted the dresses to be cream colored and have some texture. Happily, there was a lot to choose from and two of us got our dresses one night and the last sister's dress was procured about an hour ago!
I found this Lauren by Ralph Lauren jacquard dress in Bloomingdales. It was on the clearance rack to begin with and the saleswoman mentioned that it would be further reduced two days later, so I bought an expensive and well-made dress for a song! I am so happy with the cut (my favorite part are the pleats that hide my tummy a bit). I plan on wearing these (rather uncomfortable) tan peep-toe flats for the wedding and then changing my shoes for the reception (which is going to be held in a barn!).
It is exciting to be adding a fancy dress to my wardrobe... this is one bridesmaid dress that will be able to be worn after the wedding!
I was very proud to learn that all of my bridesmaids wore their dresses from my wedding again and again. Black tie weddings, holiday parties, fund raisers, they each wore the dress multiple times. There is nothing worse than buying a bridesmaid dress that screams "bridemaid." Very pretty!
how exciting! :)
Beautiful! I love the shoes but it is unfortunate that they are uncomfortable.
Over the centuries wedding dresses have changed, but a bride has always wanted her dress to be special, to make her look more beautiful.
