The Perfect Wedding Guest Dress


Dress: Bloomingdales // Shoes: DSW ; Similar // Bag: Similar

Whenever wedding season starts I start scouring the racks for dresses.  Of course I can’t bring myself to wear the same dress to more than one wedding so I always try to grab a few cocktail dresses every Summer.  My two go-to stores are Bloomingdales and Nordstrom as they both have a wide selection of dresses.  Nordstrom has free shipping and returns and if you sign up as a Bloomingdales Loyalist (it’s free) you can also get free shipping on your purchases!   Anybody else get dissuaded from making purchases when you have to pay for shipping?

I recently purchased this dress which I wore to a friends wedding last month.  While I usually try to buy something other than black I could not resist the pretty lace detailing on this dress and I wasn’t the only one.  I received a bunch of compliments and may have to consider re-wearing this one to a future wedding, it is THAT good.   The length, the fabric and the fit make for a killer combo.  And yes, I was able to get down in it…movement and comfort is a non-negotiable for weddings!

    Totally and completely obsessed with this dress on you. It looks SO freaking good! I’m totally with you–if somewhere doesn’t offer free shipping or makes me spend more than like $25 to get free shipping, I’m done. It’s 2016, get it together!!! Such a smart idea to pick up a few cocktail dresses each Summer…off to go buy one now 😉
