The Perfect Wedding Guest Dress

One Dress.
Two Dresses.
Three Dresses.
It took me four dresses to find the one that fit my taste and exactly what I was looking for!

A little back story for the occasion - Despite all of my cousins being boys, my sister and I have always been close with them. We have grown up together with fun and memorable moments since we are all relatively close in age. One of them is getting married and my heart could not be anymore full to be able to see it all come together. A spring wedding calls for spring colors! Soft yellows, baby blues, rosey pinks and all the pastels in between - spring has sprung and the wedding bells are rung! Honestly, finding a dress was a STRUGGLE. But I knew exactly what I had in mind and I was on the hunt to look for it. I had envisioned a lace midi dress, soft portrait style. Portrait dresses or "self-portrait" have become an ultimate favorite of mine within the fashion world for being Bold. Brilliant. And super chic. l like to think of the ideal portrait dress like a statement necklace - they can come in different colors, fabrics and designs and with all of that together, it creates an iconic piece for a dress. Although they can be rather expensive yet so beautiful and one of a kind at places like Nordstrom I'm always one to look for being bougie on a budget. The first three dresses are the ones I tried from ASOS. Don't get me wrong, the quality was VERY good. It was just me in search of the perfect dress.
Here's to finding the perfect wedding guest dress!
I found this lace bodycon dress from PrettyLittleThing and I fell in love instantly. The lace detailing on the dress is so feminine! It shows some skin through the lace for a sexy yet classy look and the midi length is what I wanted.
This is such a flattering color for all skin tones as it is a mauvey-pink color throughout the whole dress. I have never had a dress that hugged my body so well and accentuated my curves. My experience with PLT is a 10/10 for the quality of the dress, the color, stitching, the style, shipping and the accuracy in sizing! Looking forward to ordering from them again for my next shopaholic needs.
Trust me, I know finding the perfect dress for any occasion can be stressful! You have to think of the neckline and the fabric and the pattern and if it’s appropriate or not - so much to think about for a damn dress! But looking for a dress with time will help reduce that stress and give more time to try different styles that you haven't tried or wouldn't have known looked good on you! I have never been a fan of bodycon dresses on me only because I know my shape and curves, but I am feeling damn good in this dress and ready to dance the night away! The only person that knows your body better is YOU and with that, take the time to get to know your yourself! Flaunt those curves and I promise you will feel confident and beautiful!
