being ever the optimist

i've been taking some time. (a lot of time due to circumstances beyond my control) i'm looking for something to wear to my daughter's wedding this summer. i did have an outfit but she changed her colors from teal to burgundy and blush. then i googled mother of the bride dresses and i think my choice was too casual anyway.

so, what i'm working with is burgundy, blush or pink, in general. i go onto amazon and search for pink lace dress, or mother of the bride dress, or long pink dress, etc. often times there is a huge selection of maternity dresses. i don't know why this is. my search would be several pages less if this wasn't so. i already try to whittle it down with a filter: four stars and higher, under sixty dollars, pink, etc.

i find what i think i like and put it in my cart, to hold in order to not have to search for them later. then, after awhile, i go and look at my selections with these thoughts in my head; "too blah, too young, too matronly, too something. is a print ok or should i go solid?" and i save them for later.

i have a lot of time on my hands so hopefully, i will find something.

working with teal was so much easier.

I agree with you but we need to get you a dress first love laugh
Palmfrond
i'm afraid the last one is too casual
The idea is to dress her up..If you purchase a too much in your face you need to dress her down a bit.
Palmfrond
i know. that's why i'm not doing the va va voom. she's wearing a mermaid style, bustier top, with short train in ivory
That sounds so beautiful Palm

Dress number two. One is a bit Kate Bush, and the jacket looks like a drug dealer. Number three is alright, but a bit hippy looking.

Re Bears- Dont hang around the food, and cover your legs with vegemite.

what do you think, Merc? about what the bear said
I like them all..The second one looks plum which is a fave colour of mine...One colour is easier to dress..In saying that I like hippy I do shower though.
Palmfrond
