dress yourself

So, we covered the little black dress, but what about those times when you’re looking for something a little different? Your best friend’s/mom’s best friend’s daughter’s/ex-boyfriend’s/cousin’s wedding for example. Shockingly, I only have one wedding to attend this summer. Last summer I topped out at 5, and the most I’ve ever had in one season was 7.

In my current job, I’m constantly surrounded by show-stoppingly beautiful photos highlighting not only the wedding party, but all of the gorgeously dressed guests as well. I’ve been in the position of rustling up a last minute frock before and have no doubt that a few of you have also been found running frantically around the mall/Macy’s/5th Ave/The West Village or wherever searching for that one dress that will make you look fabulous, like you didn’t try to hard, and like you won’t outshine the bride all at the same time. I’ve been trolling around some of my favorite sites for a few that might just do the trick. Some are a little shorter and slightly less fancy than I’d normally go, but think mid-summer sunshine, mason jar water glasses, sprawling fields, an old New England barn, perfectly draped tents, a jazz quartet,  romantic evening lighting and we’re there.
