There are two things that I absolutely love about being a bridesmaid. First and foremost, nothing can surpass having the honor of standing next to your best friend on her special day. That is definitely a memory that I will never forget. And second, if we can be superficial for a moment, it's the glamour of the day and getting dressed up, hair done and makeup perfected. I'm a true girly girl, what can I say?
Finding the perfect bridesmaid dresses can be tricky since different styles flatter different body shapes, and everyone is obviously not built the same. Chelcey decided that she wanted us to wear different jewel-tone dresses which was great because we could all find something we felt comfortable in. I immediately turned to my favorite site to find my dress, and coincidentally Chelcey had spotted the same dress when she sent out some examples of the general type of look she was going for. Done deal.
I could not have been happier with this dress. Best of all, because it's not your typical bridesmaid-looking dress, I will be able to get a lot of regular wear our of this piece. Even though it is a little pricey, the quality shows when you put it on. It feels durable and heavy, not cheap like it will fall apart after a couple of wears. The lace is beautiful and the color is rich enough for fall with tights and booties, but will work just as well with sandals when spring and summer roll back around.
