Fashion Friday: Bridesmaids Dresses

Update: Boy, I almost really blew it! I forgot that this dress was Chey's favorite! Thank you Gemini for reminding me! It does really show off my eyes doesn't it?



But I do still really like the dresses below, so I'll probably buy one or two of them for either the party on Sunday, or as a backup for later on Saturday night (you know how crazy wedding parties are!). So I'd still like your opinion. Interestingly, of those that like #2, they are almost all mancats! #1 gets most of the ladies votes (followed by#4), and some of the mancats. I think #2 makes a girl look vulnerable, and the boys like that, where as #1 says sophistication and moxy, so it speaks to most of the girls (and maybe threatens the boys???). Just guessin', mind you.

This is a one-piece, floor length strapless, Ann Taylor Celebration made of silk and featuring a natural waist and an A-line silhouette. It comes in brown, blue, black and green. I think the brown with the ivory waist really compliments my coloring, and is my current favorite.

This is a Bill Levkoff European satin strapless gown. It has embroidered cummerbund accents the natural waist and loops in the back forming long tails. The A-line skirt is tea length with a slight back train. It is available in purple, gray, brown, blue, metallic, yellow, black, green, white, ivory, red, multi-colored, and pink; solid or any two-town combination. I’m not sure I like the gathering at the hem line.

This is a one-piece, floor length, dress by B2 made of taffeta, and featuring spaghetti straps and a natural waist. It comes in purple, blue, yellow, green, white, red and pink. I particularly like the gathering within the skirt.

This is a one-piece, floor length, strapless dress also by B2 in taffeta, featuring a natural waist and a sheath silhouette. It comes in purple, blue, yellow, green, white, red and pink. I think this shade of green is very flattering, and its elegant simplicity makes it my second favorite.

I like the second one, the strapless gown. But I'm a guy, so don't listen to me.

Tara you would look lovely in any of those dresses, but we like #1 since it has a removeable shoulder wrap which may be necessary in early spring.

Love,

You will be beautiful no matter what you wear.

Catzee said...

I can't make up my mind. I'm glad I don't have to wear a dress!

Jake and Bathsheba said...

#2. We mancats like to see a little leg.

Jake and Bathsheba said...

I know that it's all moot at this point, but I really like #3. It would have to be in blue to go with your eyes. The yellow doesn't flatter you, IMHO.
