The Dress Mess

Finding a dress in a bright color to wear in Ashbloem’s wedding, should be easy, right? Well, for whatever reason for the life of me I cannot find a damn thing I like. And I have tried. OH how I have TRIED. I have been to the following stores in the past 6 weeks on the hunt:

Macys (5 different branches), Lord & Taylor, Bloomingdales, Ann Taylor, Ann Taylor Loft, Cache` (awful!), David’s Bridal, H&M, JC Penny, Jones of NY, Saks, Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack, The Limited, Marshalls, TJ Maxx, Annie Sez, Dress Barn, Off 5th, all the outlets at Tanger Riverhead and numerous no-name boutiques.

and finally, the Long Island phenomenon that is Estelle’s Dressy Dresses. Where fringe, poof and sequins go to die. See exhibits A, B, C and D:

All I want is a pretty blue dress. Or pink. Or jeeze, even orange. No frillys, no pattern, no glued spangles or ornaments. Just pretty. Why is this so difficult??

  1. Karen Millen has a gorgeous strapless knee-length Sofia Loren style dress out now in orange… Do you have Karen Millen in NYC? They cater to us curvy ladies rather well, I think. Have FUN! I’ll be at another wedding in Maine.
