So this particular bride-to-be gave her bridesmaids swatches of the colors that she'd like them to find a dress in. Even better, they were all colors in the same family but different shades. So my girlfriend Megan was given a swatch that would look best with her tan complexion. This shade would definitely wash out those with a fair skin tone.
So, being the thrifty shopper that she is, she came prepared with a list of consignment shops upon picking me up. As soon as we pulled up to the first one I saw a dress that looked like the perfect peachy/nude shade of swatch she had been assigned to match. Oh and did I mention it was to be a Country Chic wedding so cowboy boots would be worn. Yeeeehah!
She liked everything except for the black satin straps. But at $10, there would be money left for some alterations by a tailor. She also would be able to accessorize with a belt if she was unable to remove the black faux drawstring. This was our first stop so Megan bought this steal because It could be worn to many other occasions if she fell in love with another at one of our next planned stops.
