I had such a fun time this weekend at a family friend’s wedding. It was in the prettiest barn (which did, luckily, have indoor heating!) and it was so great to celebrate their marriage!
What I did not have such a fun time doing was picking out a dress to wear. Even though it’s almost April, we had a major snowstorm in the middle of last week, and it was still chilly over the weekend. That meant that I needed something that was relatively warm, that wouldn’t get wrinkly in the car (the wedding was a little over an hour away), and something that didn’t look TOO wintry, because I’m just over it.
ASOS is always one of the first places I look when I need a cocktail dress. I love that they offer petite sizing, and their petite 00 size is small enough to fit me without needing to be taken in, which is amazing considering that I can sometimes wear kids sizes! I also am amazed at how quickly they ship your items to you… I’ve had things arrive in two days, and the package comes from the UK – it’s crazy! They have a great selection, and they’re reasonably priced, too. I just really love ASOS.
I ended up going with this navy blue midi dress. I knew the style would be a good fit for me – the stretchy part in the back keeps it from being too big – and I liked that the color was winter-y but not black. Because it was a midi dress, it was longer and a little bit warmer… and because I’m so short, it was actually almost a maxi on me!
My second choice, which I didn’t wear but am not returning, either, is this black lace trumpet sleeve dress (also from ASOS). It’s also really cute, and I’m sure you’ll see it somewhere here in the future!
