It is almost “that” time of year. It is time for wedding season to start up in high gear. I have already received a couple of wedding announcements and I bet most of you have also. Some of you might even have a child or loved one taking the plunge into matrimony. I have had several of you ask me, “What do you wear to a summer wedding?”I had just opened a message from a reader asking me that very question when I got an email from Erin at Purple Poppy wondering if I wanted to do another collaboration. She was thinking of a top that she had just received but I had something else in mind. I looked at her website and went straight to the dresses section. I was on a mission. Lol!!! I love the Barbara Gerwit dresses but I had already done one of those and I was looking for something a little dressier. As soon as I saw this Gretchen Scott Ruffle dress I knew it was the one. You know I love color, and this vivid pink is certainly eye catching. (For those who prefer something a little less bright, the dress also comes in black.) The ruffle around the neckline is very flattering and a great way to frame your face. I just put on some hot pink lipstick to match and I was set. I ordered my normal size and one size up because Erin thought this dress ran small, however, my normal size ended up fitting perfect.I know some of you might not be comfortable wearing a sleeveless dress so I have the solution for you. I chose to wear a cardigan with the dress which gave my arms extra coverage and would also help in case it got cool. Some weddings are held outdoors in the summer and even though it might be warm in the daytime it can still get quite cool at night. The way the collar is made makes it easy to add a cardigan.The feel of this dress is amazing. It is 97% Polyester and 3% Elastane. I Googled to see what Elastane was and found out that it is the same thing as Lycra. Another great thing about this dress is that it is fine for hand washing so that means no trip to the dry cleaners. YAY! If I have something that is “dry clean only” you might as well forget it because I never go to the dry cleaners. I don’t think we even have one in town! I will be giving away another piece of Plunder jewelry on Monday. To enter the giveaway go check out the dresses at Purple Poppy and tell me which one is your favorite.
