who says bridesmaids have to be blobs of bold colors? who wants to own a hot pink dress anyway? not only that, but i feel like 90% of bridesmaids dresses are strapless tube tops (could they not have put any thought into a nice sweetheart neckline at the least?), they're overly shiny (ugh, taffetta), and somehow they're three to four hundred dollars! what a money maker.
hello macys, where a well constructed, totally rewearable dress can run $50-200. i think that the following two lines: maggy london, and london times, are particularly bridesmaid appropriate and i'm excited to see what they'll have to offer over the next couple seasons.
so why not do prints? this dress i saw at macys with a palatable price tag of around $60. here's my mod side taking over. so maybe i don't mean "print" so much as black and white mod graphics. so here's a few things from macys.com.
i particularly like 7, but perhaps 8 is more bridesmaidy. i also like 1. i find the texture of 12 to be so enticing. 13 through 15 are available in black although i guess i wish they were just a little longer? macy's even has bride-worthy dresses at around the $200 mark:
