Dress Debacle

I've recently started my search for the perfect dress to wear to my sister-in-law's wedding. It's actually been a somewhat enjoyable experience (minus the J.Crew disappointment) because I'm finally wearing the size I was in before I got pregnant with LO. That's SO encouraging!

When I was shopping for a new swimsuit last night, I became infatuated with the Antonio Melani line at Dillard's. So I immediately jumped online this morning to scope out his collection of dresses. Oh, dear! So many darling choices! I've posted three of my favorites below for thoughts/comments. Do share!

Up first: "Sacha." I think this one's my favorite, but I'm not sure I can pull it off. Those tiny little belts sometimes look lost around my still somewhat large middle.

Option 2: "Zoya." I like the style of this dress, but I'm pretty sure there's unwritten rule against wearing white to a wedding. Unfortunately it doesn't come in any other colors. Sigh.

And finally, "Penne." I like this one, but I'm not sure if it's too "wild" for a classy September wedding.

So what do you all think? I'm not set on an Antonio Melani dress--I just found several of them that I adore! Any other good finds I should know about?


  1. Ooh I really like the last one. I guess you should ask yourself...would you mind if someone had worn that to your wedding if you're feeling iffy about it being too wild.

  2. lspoon, I'm not at all worried about the bride minding that I show up in dress #3. I'm wondering if I could handle it! I like to blend in and I'm afraid I'd stand out like a sore thumb in that last one. Maybe it's more of a "date dress" for a romantic night out with hubs... ;)

  3. #1 is definitely my favorite. Very classic. #3 is super cute too.

  4. i like #3. just add a cardigan or little jacket :)
