-- DressUp --

I posted last week that I am a new Pinterest addict (follow me if you'd like).  I just love how its a place to save all my favorite images without having to be careful about the source of the image ... because its all saved for me!

Lately I've been pinning a lot of dress pictures since I'm shopping for a new dress for an upcoming family wedding.  The wedding is going to be outdoors, beside the water, on a Saturday afternoon in August so I don't really want to be super dressy or hot.  But, the reception doesn't start until 7pm and its taking place at a relatively swanky hotel.  So I'm kind of torn between something casual and something more dressy...

Here are a couple dresses that have caught my eye...

I really love the fuschia colored dress but it might be a little short on me.  I also love the style of the deep purple dress from ModCloth.

But, I'm fortunate enough to have just gotten a black jersey dress from Tristan on a great sale about a month ago and I'm tempted to just try to make it work for this wedding.  Maybe by pairing it with some coral or cobalt wedges and a simple bangle and a great statement necklace it would be spicy/dressy enough for a wedding?

What do you think?  Any favorites?  Any recommendations or suggestions?

I'm with you on the fushia dress... it's lovely! But black can transform so easily. A nice neutral colored belt, accessories or add lots of color ... I think you can't go wrong with either choices.

I too have a wedding this August, outdoors by the water and with the crazy heatwaves we've been having, I'm thinking I might just go naked! :)

While I do think you can spice up your existing dress with fun accents, I also LOVE that fushia dress, and the navy one. So cute and fun, and both are ones you can wear again later!
