So from following J’s Everyday Fashion I found a new website with seriously cute and affordable dresses:
Anyways, I’ve been looking for a white dress for graduation for some time now, as well as to replace my sorority ritual dress since the one I still have is in serious disrepair (read: broken halter strap, broken zipper and lots of safety pins). Not that I really go to lots of rituals since I’ve “gone alum” (oops) but in the case that I go back to be a part of a ceremony I want to have something that might be a better option than my current one.
The dress I was originally interested in is from Delia’s:
Daisy Organza Dress (currently on sale for $49.90)
The reason I ultimately decided against this one was based on several reviews.
There was multiple reports that there is WAY too much fabric around the zipper at the waist and as a result, the zipper often gets stuck and is really a pain to deal with. I was not a fan of that as someone who has dealt with that fiasco before.
But once I found Hazel & Olive I fell in love with 2 other little white dresses…
And…they were less expensive, the Delia’s dress is marked down from almost $70.00 and these Hazel and Olive ones are full price!
I found two little beauties:
Hey Beautiful Dress, $39.00 Sold out in my size
(they already sold out once so maybe it will come back!)
And this stunner, of course sold out in ALL sizes…
Always and Forever Dress- Cream $40.00 SOLD OUT
(Again, lets cross our fingers for a come back!)
I do realize the second dress is not technically white and may not technically be appropriate for ritual ceremonies. That’s fine because I just saw lots of cute white options on Delia’s that have been marked down to $15.00 or $20.00!!
Okay so for the Pros and Cons:
“Hey Beautiful Dress”
PROS: way cute, way whiter (more suitable for a possible ritual dress down the line)
CONS: might not look great with my pale skin? shorter than most dresses
“Always and Forever Dress – Cream”
PROS: gorgeous, lightweight, possibly better with my skin tone
CONS: the open back does not allow wearing a normal bra so stick-on-silicone-chicken-cutlets would be necessary,
may require another dress purchase for an eventual ritual dress replacement
Which would you choose? I’m collecting votes while waiting for them to come back in stock!
