Party attire for the bride, part two...

I posted recently about needing to find something to wear to the open house that Mr. C's mom is throwing for us.  As it's my first time meeting a lot of the folks who will be there, I'm feeling the need to look pretty, fresh, and put together.

I finally made it over to Anthropologie last week to check out this dress:

Mona Dress from Anthropologie
Sadly, I wasn't as much of a fan of this dress in person - the fabric was thick and stretchy.  Plus, they didn't have it in my size.  I also read in the online reviews that the front neckline was realllly low, and I'm a small-chested girl, so I have a feeling it wouldn't have worked out.

What I did find instead, however, was this dress!  I'm not sure what the name of it is, as I can't find it on the Anthropologie website. 

Pretty blue and white sundress!
Cute, right?  The wide scoopneck and narrow waist look nice on me.  The back is really cute too, with two wide bands across the middle back...but do you notice something wrong with this picture? 

I just noticed that the security tag is still on the dress!  Womp-womp.  Guess I'll be taking it back to the store this week to have that removed.   But at least I found something pretty to wear!  

I think I may wear the white lace dress to my bachelorette party/shower instead.  I'm trying to avoid getting any bizarre tan lines this summer, so a strapless sundress for a picnic in the park would be smart.  Yay for me for thinking ahead!

Do you have any wedding events coming up?  What are you wearing?  Am I the only one worried about weird summer tan lines?


  1. I actually found that dress on their website a while ago, and then when I went back to check recently it wasn't there. I'm thinking I need to go to the store and try to find it, since you found it there. I think it's adorable, I really want to try it on!

  2. It fits great - I had to size down a size because of the wide neckline, but it's really flattering. Good luck!
