So yesterday I asked you to help me shop for this sister-of-the-groom (aka Might Show Up Naked). Roughly 80 of you did.
I combed your comments and chose 7 dresses, taking these deets from MSUN into consideration:
It will be an outdoor ceremony in the late afternoon (in August), moved inside for an evening reception. It is taking place up north (close to Boston - the 'wicked' totally gave me away!), and I definitely think it is a 'new money' vibe (though I am not entirely sure what that means).
... I am loving the idea of going balls out on one asset, staying pretty conservative everywhere else - aka - maybe get reeeaal leggy and try to stay pretty modest on the top?? Thoughts? (PS - now that we are best friends I can tell you that I am 5' 10", between size 8-10... more likely to show off my legs than my boobies/arms). Maybe a one of the cap sleeve numbers? I am also LOVING the backless idea.

We kind of struck out on the backless thing. Maybe that only works with an evening dress? (I.E. This "body conscious" shit sucks.)
HOKAY. Please choose wisely. You only get one vote.
I'll post the results tomorrow at 4pm PST.
