My dear friend Alyssa sent in a fashion query this week, and I was only too happy to oblige! She wrote:
I went straight to my old standby Modcloth when faced with your search, Alyssa, especially since you were maybe looking for something with a vintage vibe. Modcloth hint: when searching for dresses, I always select the “longer lengths” category — many of Modcloth’s dresses look reasonable on their website only to turn out to indecently short in person (in my opinion!). “Longer lengths” nets you dresses that are more of a true cocktail length.
But on to the dresses!
“Too Much Fun” dress in raspberry (also available in grapefruit) for $78. Cute, but perhaps a tad casual for an evening wedding. I like that you could add a braided leather belt or a jean jacket and be good to go for daytime wear.
“Red-y to Dance” dress for $100. Love this dress! Definitely elegant, but the red makes it fun, and it has a bit of a vintage vibe. I think this color would look stunning on Alyssa!
“Love is the Answer” dress for $65. I think this dress is elegant and darling at the same time. My only concern is that the color might not be the best for Alyssa (depends how tan you currently are, my friend!).
My token non-Modcloth option, this one is from Macy’s for $83. Alyssa, I know you would be pleased to know that this one got the “adorable” vote from John :)
I hope this helps, my friend! Readers, have any great wedding guest outfit options for Alyssa? Leave them below in the comments!
