It’s kind of like Big Foot

Everyone’s heard of the bridesmaid’s dress you’d actually wear again, but no one really believes it exists.


You remember these dresses, right?


Well, they should go down in history. Because they’ve been worn again — I chose to wear mine with a faux lambskin vest and open-toed boots.


Laura wore her bridesmaid’s skirt with a jacket and flat boots instead of the matching bustier.


It’s irrefutable proof of the existence of a re-wearable bridesmaid’s ensemble. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m gonna try to catch the Loch Ness Monster.

P.S. You know what would look beautiful with any kind of dress? The pearl necklace you could win!

Thanks Laura and Reily for the photos!

    Ooh the fact that these are two-piece dresses probably makes them much more versatile.

    Yours is the best bridesmaid dress I’ll ever see, seriously. I love the skirt that looks like flower petals and how you’ve worn it over and over again. But it looks like a new and different dress, every time! Chalk that up to being ridiculously creative with a keen eye for style. I love it!

    I know girls who’ve worn their bridesmaid dresses again – it definitely helps if it’s a two-piece. I like the last one the best. Thankfully I was always allowed to wear whatever I wanted as a bridesmaid and I extended that dress code to my bridesmaids when I got married! Never understood why women can get so picky over a color scheme or a look for their wedding…

    You are too adorable – I am seriously in love with that bridesmaid dress! Definitely goes down in history for being worn again. & love the jacket you paired it with!

    Great post! I always have grand plans to re-wear bridesmaid dresses, but it hasn’t happened yet. Of course, it helps that yours were so hot in the first place!

  • Reply Courtney October 26, 2010 at 4:02 pm

    Amazing – I like these dresses more every time I see them! So cute!

    I think I just witnessed a miracle! Love how you styled it with the vest and booties, what a treat to ACTUALLY get to wear it again :)
