Dressing for Wedding Season

This summer seems to be the summer of weddings for me – between family and friends, I have at least one wedding each month this summer! Since multiple weddings are extended family members, I can’t repeat the same dress for all of them, so I’ve been doing some serious wedding guest shopping.

Since I’m pretty tiny – I can sometimes fit into a kids size medium! – I tend to do most of my shopping online. I’ve just found that they have the best selection in terms of sizes and styles that aren’t always in the store, and it’s easier for me to find dresses that fit but don’t look too young.

There are two stores that I look to most frequently, and I’ve picked out a few selections I love from each store:

  •  ASOS
    ASOS is a UK-based retailer, but they do offer free shipping AND free returns to the US, which is an amazing deal. In addition to affordable prices and more unique styles, ASOS offers Petite 00 sizing. Sizing has been an issue for me in the past, in terms of finding things that actually fit, so I really appreciate this sizing!



  • Nordstrom
    There actually is a Nordstrom not too far from me, but their online selection is really unparalleled. It can get expensive, but you can definitely find things on sale – sometimes you just have to shop in advance! They are also one of the only stores to carry women’s size 4 shoes, which I really appreciate. Plus, they always offer free shipping and free returns, with no time limit! You can’t go wrong.


I’m always looking for new places to shop, so let me know your go-to places in the comments!
