I'm not sure if there is a straight answer to these questions, but hopefully you and your fashion savvy readers can help:
Is there an ideal season in which to go dress shopping? I'm not getting married until Spring 2013, so I feel like I have a TON of time before I need to figure that out. However, it would be nice to save some money if there is a sale season on dresses. Does that even exist in wedding dress land?
Also, I'm considering going with an untraditional skirt/top combo. Would shopping for those pieces out-of-season be my best bet on finding sales?
- An all-over light pink dress
- A white skirt and colored top
- A vibrant skirt and neutral top
Please let me know if this is a horrible idea so I can save myself the embarrassment and waste of time!
Clueless But Bright(ly Dressed)
As my friend A put it, "To wear tropical prints without looking like a clown, one must first not give a fuck whether one resembles a clown while wearing tropical prints."
This wee bit of advice can be applied to ANYTHING, of course. Hangliding, buying lube at Rite Aid, approaching a group of enthusiastic young fellows at the Tiki Ti and asking them to recommend a cocktail.
To __________ without looking like a clown, one must first not give a fuck whether one resembles a clown while __________.
At top, a Pleated Flower-Print Skirt from Proenza Schouler. Perhaps to be worn with...
an Alexander McQueen Sheer Lace Blouse? Am I out of my mind??
Barneys, Bergdorf Goodman and net-a-porter are all having pretty decent sales at the moment. Go have a look-see.
