My Monday Shopping Cart – Wedding Dresses

That title freaked you out a little didn’t it?? Don’t worry, I don’t mean bridal wedding dresses – I mean dresses for me to wear as a guest to a wedding! My friend Rachel is getting married at the end of May and I will be attending. It’s an evening wedding and while it’s not formal, it’s definitely fancy. So I’ve already starting putting together some serious dress contenders for the event!

Kiyonna Scalloped Boudoir Lace Dress – Sonsi

I know I’ve written about this dress before, but now I’m even more resolved to get it! It’s been on the red carpet (shout out to Ashely Fink and Melissa McCarthy!!) so I am pretty sure that means it’s approved for fancy weddings!

V-Neck Maxi Knit Dress – Eshakti

Now, I know that this dress looks a wee bit plain. But that’s why Jesus made shoes and lipstick and accessories! This simple and elegant dress will provide the perfect foundation for killer shoes, a bold necklace and (of course!) red lips. And I could do so many different things with it! Oh the possibilities…….

XCVI Wearables Santorini Maxi Dress – Nordstrom

Though this is also a maxi dress, it’s definitely more of a statement dress. I love the bright color and the simple shape. I could keep hair and accessories simple and still stand out! Because let’s be honest – when have I ever been one to blend in??

Calvin Klein Cold Shoulder Matt Jersey Dress – Nordstrom

This dress would actually serve three purposes: 1- I could try the cold shoulder dress/top trend that has been intriguing me; 2- It is a perfect LBD; and 3- I’ve been telling myself I need to own a simple, elegant Calvin Klein dress. Three good reasons to buy!

DKNYC Colorblock Faux Wrap Cocktail Dress – Nordstrom

I could go on and on about the great color, comfy shape and great brand, but really this dress comes down to one thing; POCKETS. This is a cocktail dress with pockets!! Seriously, it doesn’t get any better than that.

So which do you think I should choose? Let me know in the comments, or on Facebook or Twitter.  I can’t wait to hear your thoughts!

    My fashion is limited to yoga pants and blogging conference swag t-shirts but I love LOVE the lace dress and think it would look amazing on you… but I love the cold shoulder trend, too… and want you to try it first. So… um.. both?

    • Thank you for feeding my shopping addiction and telling me I need two dresses Evin! I actually do want the cold shoulder one for fun, not for the wedding. Both it is!

    Lace. Totally the lace. And Mom and I were super confused by the title BTW.

  6. Looks like the consensus is the lace one! I better get to ordering….

    Cathy, you’d be gorgeous in the lace dress!  But Evin is right, the CK is really good too and I think the blue in the DKNYC would be amazing on you as well!
