Choose Your Own Adventure… Or… My Bridesmaid Dress

Ooh, did I hook you with that bizarre title? Today I was thinking about those awesome Choose Your Own Adventure books I used to read – remember those? (I would totally cheat and go back and finish the book with every possibly scenario, so technically I chose everyone’s adventure, moreso than my own… but I digress.) Someday I’m going to write a Choose Your Own Adventure blog post. Not kidding. You’ll be able to click different links that lead you in all kinds of exciting directions! But not today. Today you get the exciting adventure of… choosing how I wear my bridesmaid dress! Seriously, I want your input guys. I’m excited to get a little interaction going and I’m going to be disappointed if no one gives me any input.

In a week and a half I will put on my 7th bridesmaid dress (I’m remembering the moment in Father Of The Bride when the in-laws are like, “the bathroom is the seventh door on the right” and Steve Martin is like SECOND? And they’re like no, seventh.” Ha. Love that movie.) So yes, this will be #7, and I’m super excited for my good friend Kimi and her fiance Mike.

So… my dress for Kimi’s wedding is a convertible wrap dress! (Yay for dresses that flatter everyone!) I’m sure you’ve seen the type of dress I’m talking about, from Two Birds or elsewhere. We bought ours handmade, by a lovely gal named Katesy on Etsy. There lots of ways you can wrap them, so I thought, why not get my blog readers involved? So here are my top choices, and you can vote for how I wear the dress here in the post, or on facebook.

#1: Simple Halter

#2: Capped sleeve

#3 Knotted Tank (One Knot is a little higher than the other in this picture so it makes me look a little…. lopsided. That would not be the case on the wedding day!)

#4: Grecian One Shoulder

#5: Front Halter

Ok… verdict please! What’s your fave??

Also, if you missed it, I guest posted on Shimmer + Silk – a honeymoon inspiration board and playlist for Jess while she’s in Costa Rica with her new husband! Go say hello!

Ohhhh WOW! I LOVE this dress!! I think the fifth style is my favorite — but…man!! So hard to make a decision!! I’d be mixin’ it up mid wedding lol. ;)

#4or #5 because they look the most glam and would work best day to night.

Hard to choose when the model is so pretty she makes them all look good :) but either of the halters get my vote. Enjoy!
