So, in August, very good friends of ours will be getting married. Hubby is the best man and has this A-mazing gray suit he'll be wearing. (Is it weird that I like to know what the colors are for weddings so I can try to "blend in" with the wedding party?) He's also been sent his tie, which is this great grid pattern of blues and blacks.
Here comes my question: What will I wear to the wedding? I admit that I am sort of pathetic when it comes to owning dresses. I own three black dresses for "going out" and the other four dresses I own are casual dresses that I wear to church. Because Hubby's suit is so fancy and shiny, I don't want to be wearing a casual-smasual dress. Uck.
Thus, I am on the prowl for a dress to wear to the wedding.
The specifics of this dress must be:
These are some of the first dresses I've come across:
This is my favorite find. They're sold out online, but appear to still have it in my local store. Downside? Still a little pricey.
Ann Taylor: Cotton Waterspot Print Sheath ($119.99)
I love this dress too, but I think it might be too much gray when I stand next to Hubby.
Ann Taylor: Linen Tucked Sheath Dress ($149.99)
This Anthropologie dress is amazing, but I'm bad about thin straps.
Perhaps a "try on" is necessary.
Anthropologie: Charcoal Terrace Dress ($79.95)
This is a great evening dress, but may be too much for me to wear often enough.
The Limited: Ruched Tank Dress ($118)
This dress just looks comfy.
Ruche: Sweet Disposition Floral Applique Dress ($62.99)
And this dress from Banana Republic looks amazing in detail, but again with the straps...
Banana Republic: Silk Smocked Dress ($120)
