I really thought this would be easy. I'd pick a couple of stores, go shopping and have a great dress to wear to my son's wedding. Well, I didn't think it would be that easy since I wear petite clothes but I didn't think it would be this hard.
I've asked my friends for help and found they shopped long and hard before finding something. One went to many stores and had to go more than once to some before finally finding a dress. Another who recently had surgery on her feet is ordering any dress that catches her eye during on-line shopping and then trying them all on at home.
I didn't start early enough! The wedding is May 4th and this may take that long. Add to it the need for something to wear to the rehearsal followed by dinner in a park and to brunch the day after the wedding and I'll really get to know our stores.
OK, I am picky and I live in jeans, yoga pants, capris or shorts. I used to dress up in suits when I had an office based job but never had formal wear.
I'd prefer a knee length dress although tea length would work. No black. I want a modest neckline and prefer cap or short sleeves. It needs a jacket or appropriate cover up as the evening can be cool near the beach in S. CA.
I'm signing up for personal shoppers at Macy's and Nordstrom's and guess I will hit up some bridal shops too. I am delighted about this wedding by the way!
I'll let you know how it turns out but any suggestions are welcome.
