Cute Dresses

October 31, 2008

I’ve never heard of his place before, but I got a catalog in the mail for this online store yesterday. I quickly flipped through it and found the dress above…it’s $30! I have no idea if they are good quality or not but it’s definitely cute (and maybe tragic that I didn’t find it before our rehearsal dinner). A speaking of dresses – how cute would this be as a bridesmaids dress?
It is certainly something that could be worn again & could look so cute with the right accessories. Maybe green necklaces…

We’re having our engagement pictures taken in 3 weeks, which is a huge “holy s@#$!!” in my world. We scheduled the session with our photographers back in February when June seemed like such a long time away…and here we are. How is it possible that it’s June?! I digress. When I looked at my calendar last week and realized the pics were fast approaching, I also realized I have nothing to wear. But I did have a jcrew gift card in my wallet…

I love the picture above, minus the rolled up/holey jeans. Its casual but still looks put together. However, that mustard yellow color and I do not get along. A little more hunting and I found this: A little hard to tell, but its a silver-ish pewter color. I am planning on wearing it with jeans and either a black or navy blue Jackie cardigan over it, just like the picture: Hi, I am Darci, and I steal complete outfit ideas from jcrew. But, oh how I love the Jackie cardigan. They’re super soft and have 3/4 length sleeves, perfect for spring. And with the neutral color palette it will be easy for Brad to pick a coordinating shirt. But wait, a person can’t have just one outfit for engagement pictures! I continued to hit the jcrew sale hard and found this: Also 3/4 sleeves, which I think might actually look cute with folded up jeans (to make it more summery) and these shoes: I know that sometimes bright colors show up great in pictures, but I am a neutral girl (aside from the bright green shirts I sport every now and again). My goal is to just look like “us” and try to relax in front of the camera a little. Thoughts? What did you wear/plan to wear for your engagement pictures?
