Cute Bridal Shower Dresses

Just received a Nordy’s catalogue in the mail this afternoon and spotted a perfect specimen for a summery bridal shower or rehearsal dinner dress. The dress has an ever-flattering sweetheart neckline, defines the natural waist and flares gently into a slight a-line to skim over the hips and thighs – pretty much an all-around figure flattering dress.

What’s even better, it only costs $118 and has some really cute details that are usually reserved for pricier frocks. White Dress by Suzi Chin, $118 at Nordstrom

On the Nordstrom’s website I also stumbled upon this cute white dress by Maggy London that would also be a perfect bridal shower or rehearsal dinner pick. It’s also a budget-friendly option at $138, and is a bit more conservative than the previous.

Both of these dresses would look so adorable with a pastel 3/4 sleeve cardigan (think J. Crew) and a sexy pair of statement heels. Love it!

Enjoy your weekend. 🙂

Little White Getaway Dress (or Short Wedding Dress)

I was perusing the Shop Bop winter sale today and came across this lovely little stunner of a dress in creme.  I couldn’t help but think it would make a gorgeous option for a getaway dress, a short wedding dress, or a dancing dress for the bride to change into once dinner is over. Image it with a pair of high heels with dramatic detail (feathers, ruffles or rosettes, perhaps?) and a statement necklace – the outfit would certainly make for some fabulous pictures while kicking your heels up on the dance floor!  I would pair it with a cropped jacket for a getaway exit for a look that is classic yet timely.

My only wish? That the straight-across neckline had a sweetheart shape.
