styling challenge

Posted on | 26 August 2009 | 9 Comments

so yesterday my sister e-mailed me with the following challenge: "i have to go to a wedding next weekend and i'm looking for some sort of inspiration/spiritual guidance as to what the eff to wear. it's outside [at an estate]. my guess is it will be fairly warm. also, i've met these people like twice." she's got a great new short haircut (a-la ginnifer goodwin) and a wonderful and slightly quirky vintage aesthetic. so here's what i came up with. please help her decide by voting for your favorite. {all collages by me via banana republic, mod cloth, j.crew & anthropologie}

    I love the green ensemble. Cream is nice but not at a wedding. Only the bride wears white or cream. Send some outfits for me! I'm not going anywhere special.

    they are all wonderful...i like how each one has a cinched waist!
    probably the last one is my favorite.

    you expect us to be able to choose one of these?!?!?! jess, these are all amazing (seriously, where did you find all this stuff??!?!). i love the first, second and fourth numbers, but I suppose if i really had to pick i'd got with the green dress. fabulous!

    The green one! It reminds me of the dress from Atonement.

    May I ask how long it took you to put this post together? Nice lasso-ing work!

    ha, nikki, i forgot to answer you on this. about 1-2 hours. and if you look closely, that magic wand left a lot of jagged edges.
