“Ah, here it is. Here’s our theme. Here’s our answer. Pink. I want dresses made up in this pink. Babs, take this to Kaiser Delmont. I want shoes and stockings in this color. Laura, everything goes pink. I want the whole issue pink. I want the whole country pink! Lettie, take an editorial, ‘To the women of America-” No, make it, ‘To the women everywhere.’ Banish the black, burn the blue, and bury the beige.”
– Funny Face, 1957
Suddenly the shoe is on the other foot and I’m the one bridesmaid dress shopping. And again, Shabby Apple (which has just launched their new bridesmaid line!) may save my butt, it depends on whether Marie will be having all us girls in the same outfit or just the same color.
And what color could that possibly be for the bride who loves argyle, pearls, knee-socks, and perfect hair? Pink of course!
I wish I wasn’t so technologically hopeless, I’d post pictures of the dresses I’ve found so far, but here are the links.
1st Option: really cute!
2nd Option: not great, but with a cute accessory, could be.
3rd Options: I can’t afford but love.
4th Option: favorite. Duh. It’s Dolce and Gabbanna. It’s also prohibitively expensive. But I’m thinking that’s the hair/lip/face look I’ll go for, if there aren’t any limitations placed.
5th-11th Option: be my panel of judges, darlings. What are your opinions of these?
Can anybody say “Color explosion?”

My personal favorites:
Option 2 and Cleo & Antony.
I think I would spend all of my money at Shabby Apple, if only I had money to spend.
That’s my fav too, but would it look good in pink?
Obviously number 4 is the most fantastic thing around. I found the Shabby Apple dresses to be so different in style from the other more contemporary/mod designs of the first 4 that it’s hard to compare. I, personally, think that 2, 3, and 4 had the benefit of being bold and beautiful, without too much detail to detract from the bride.
I want #4 SO BADLY. And could never justify it.
I like the nannette lepore best. i think the first will get you into another ruffle situation.
have you looked on bluefly? decent discounts on the designer stuff. i got my elie tahari for your wedding there, like 60% off.
I agree with the ruffle problem, I’ll raid Bluefly next.
Nix the Perla.
I ADORE Jack/Jill and Anne/Andy. Cleo/Antony is good too.
There’s also this:
HA! Totally was thinking of that one too, just didn’t post it!
#1 is my favorite.
