That dress is stunning! But not for everyone :) I tried a couple of BCBG dresses but they didn't fit me very well and were going to be hard to alter. I am a petite (5' 2") especially in dresses.

My mom and I went shopping yesterday and she found her dress!! Well I don't know how to post the pic, so here is the link:

JCPenney

The front looks like a halter, but the back is covered. (there is material that comes from the back of the neck, or the back of the halter, that connects to the midback section of the dress.) Don't know if that makes sense, but it looks great on her and was pretty inexpensive. She got it for $60. smile159.gif

OOhh.. I like that one. Do you know if it came in other colors?

I think its ok, but for myself I tend to wear a fair amount of black so I wanted something lighter and different.

 

Check and see because if a dress comes in black chances are they might have it in another colour.

 

Also, I don't know about where you live, but here the spring/summer stuff isn't even in the stores yet so maybe waiting another couple of weeks you'll be able to find something with colour?

FYI - this is $119 from metrostyle.com Women's apparel: Suits, Tops, Pants, Skirts, Dresses

 

This is kind of similar to what my mom's suit looks like. Her sleeves are a little shorter and the sheer jacket just covers her butt.

 

She's 55 and only 5' tall and a little on the rounder side. I really just want her to be comfortable. She never wears skirts but I think the flowy pants are a good compromise.

 

The suit is a beautiful champagne/sand color. She found a pair of gold/aqua/turquoise wedge heeled sandals and I'm having a friend who is a jewelery designer make her a fun-chunky necklace to incorporate all of the colors.

 

The JC Penny website has some nice options. FI's mom will probably go there. I'm guessing she'll want pants as well.

Love this thread! My mom and I were JUST talking about this today! My aunt mentioned she wanted to wear a long dress, and my mom freaked b/c now she thinks she has to do the same :). I told her I want everyone to wear whatever they want as long as they are comfy and cool! So I'm gonna have to show her these pics - thanks ladies!!!

    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
