Spring has definitely sprung. For me, the first sign is when the purple flowers start to bloom on the Jacaranda trees lining our street. For many others however, it’s the onslaught of wedding invitations that flood their mailbox signaling the inevitable (and sometimes dreaded) dress shopping.
Fortunately, I revel in the challenge of helping my friends find the perfect outfit for any occasion. So I’ve dedicated this edition of “Adventures in Shopping” to help one such friend channel her inner Kate Hudson (circa How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days) for an upcoming summer wedding. My style formula is simple for weddings –
1) Don’t be afraid of color, who cares if you stand out – besides isn’t that the point for all my single ladies out there???
2) Pick a material that you can shimmy in, that chicken dance isn’t gonna dance itself
3) Lastly, there’s really no need to break the bank, because we all know weddings are where dresses go to die (am I righhhhht?)
Here are just three of the styles I’ve picked so far, with a low-high investment. Check back for a status report….you never know the power of a dress, maybe she’ll meet her own prince charming – le sigh.
