After being complimented for the zillionth time on the following dress, I decided it was too good not to share. It's nothing super fashion-forward, but for whatever reason, it really does the trick. When I discovered this pretty little thang at OLD NAVY, I thought to myself blllaaaaAAAAHHH THAT WOULD MAKE A GREAT BRIDESMAID'S DRESS.

Now, why was I thinking about bridesmaid's dresses? Because, for the record, once you become a bride-to-be, you never stop being one, even two years into your marriage. You are always looking at things that would look great in a wedding. That should be evident from my wedding do-overs posts.
But I was also thinking about it because I will soon be the maid of honor in the wedding of my beautiful friend, Emily!
|Here we are on my wedding day. I can't wait to do something awkward to her on her special day!|
She's been doing this very smart thing by including all of her bridesmaids on a wedding Pinterest board. One of the girls ended up lighting it up with a ton of gorgeous navy dresses (the colors of the wedding are navy and pink) like the following:
|Nordstrom - $148|
|J Crew - $275|
|Tommy Hilfiger - Macy's - $109.99|
I think we can all agree these would look awesome in any wedding, and they are dresses we would all wear again in real life (unlike the ones I picked for my wedding...sorry, Emily).
But then when I was browsing my way around Old Navy, I found that TWENTY-FIVE DOLLAR gem pictured up at the top of this post. I had a mini seizure and started texting Emily frantically. I ended up reserving, like, every size and buying one for myself. Emily was into it, and I felt like a hero. After a discussion with her mom, they ended up going with another dress (a really affordable, gorgeous number from Piperlime), but regardless, it still felt like a victory.
This is me the day I found the dress at Old Navy:
|STOKED AND ACCESSORIZED|
It's 100% cotton (crazy comfortable), and in case you can't tell from the picture it has a scalloped hemline and what oldnavy.com calls "sheer eyelet details across the front" (whatever, I would have called them fabricy cut-outy things with a solid lining).
Oh, and did I mention it comes in a bunch of COLORS?
Anyway, if you are a bride-to-be, a bridesmaid, or just a girl looking for a cheap dress, head to Old Navy TODAY. This dress is on sale, and some of the other colors are as cheap as $20 (can you seriously imagine if your bridesmaid's dress was actually $20?).
Does anyone else have any cheap bridesmaid dress options? Life is expensive, so don't keep this good news to yourself!
