Now, if you watch my Instagram Stories on Instagram you may have seen my first impression of this dress on video. I was not in love with this dress at all. It was pretty small and skimpy to me; not to mention the cold shoulder and open back. But when hubby came home from work and saw me in this dress he was like"VA VA VA VOOM!". So, I kept the dress. I figured I could at least wear it on a date night for him. Because of the colors, I could also wear it in the fall with tights, tall boots, and a jean jacket. But I still was unsure of wearing it to the wedding. So, I went dress shopping again, and still didn't find anything. Then, the weather got really hot and humid. Hmmm, I thought, maybe I should wear that skimpy dress after all. So I did, and I was so glad I did. I was as comfortable as I could be in the steamy weather. And guess what? Most of the other women at the wedding had skimpy dresses on as well. I ended up getting a lot of compliments too!
The dress is by Collective Clothing and is called "Marina Cold Shoulder Dress". It has a ruffle top, a tie waist, and is above the knee. It is lined inside. The color is a gorgeous emerald green with a pretty blush pink floral print.
The back has both a zipper and a tie. At first I thought the tie was kinda weird, but then I realized how helpful it is to keep your straps up. You can also adjust it to make it tighter or looser on your bust/back.
The second item I received in this Fix was this Baublebar Pearl Statement Collar Necklace. I really liked this necklace and it went perfect with the dress. I really wanted to keep this necklace, but the price tag of $48.00 was too steep for me. So I sent it back. I also thought it looked a little "cheap" for a $48.00 necklace.
Following the advise of my stylist, I wore my own 9 West nude wedges with my dress (old).
I did get three other items in this Fix: a pair of white jeans, an off-the-shoulder top, and a Tie-Front Blouse. I kept two of those three items, so it was a pretty good Fix for me. You will see those items and Stitch Fix reviews soon!
Finally, I want to show you some pictures from the actual wedding. Here I am with my husband in the exact same outfit except I wore my own double strand pearl necklace.
And here we are with our beautiful granddaughter Alethea wearing her stunning blush pink tulle dress and our handsome son Jordan.
And these are Alethea's parents: my daughter Ashley and son-in-law Jason. If Ashley's dress looks familiar to you, it's because it's one of mine. I just featured it on my Instagram Round Up post last Friday.
I planned on taking lots of gorgeous photography of this wedding to do a blog post about it, but my DSLR camera battery died when we got there. I could have cried! I still had my IPhone and did take plenty of pictures, but the quality is just not the same. I will still show you a few highlights soon!
Have a Great Day! Amy
