We're going to a wedding next month and i really wanna wear my new jean skirt i got and i have some silver color heels with the sparkly things on top problem is i went through ALL my shirts and i have decided none look just right so i guess im gonna need something that goes! What color shall i look for? I'm thinking now maybe just a white one but you know like a nice button one or something! thoughts?

ok...i'll play...lol.

i have to ask...is this an "extremely" casual wedding?  sorry...just wondering about the blue jean skirt for a wedding...normally, that would not be appropriate.

Yeah, you might wanna step it up just a tad. How about a long casual summer dress maybe?

I'm not sure its my DH's boss whos getting married and the wedding is gonna be at a hotel! I also have a short black dress i was thinking about wearing its not skimpy though just a lil shorter its has the pin stripes on the top part of it! Its definetly more of a nicer dress than a going out one!

That sounds nice except the color. Do you have something a little cheerier maybe? Summer wedding, maybe a blue, black is probably ok, but reminds me more of a funeral. Simple skirt, long or short with a nice top or a dress with a little bit of a heel. Doesnt have to be real dressy.

Nope thats all I have I will have to go buy something else if it doesnt work! I have slacks but of course i wanted to wear something different and new and i really want to wear a dress or skirt! I like the idea of a summer type dress do you think my heels will match? I also have some sandal looking heels they have a chunky heel on them.
The wedding is at 4:30 then theres dinner and then of course the party!

what a good excuse to go buy something new :)

dont know if you have a t.j. maxx near you...but you can find a large assortment of dresses for $25 and under.

4:30...dont wear black.  find something that will look nice with the shoes that you were planning on wearing...i think they will look better with a dress for the wedding than a chunky heel.  personally...i would wear a dress that is 3/4 length...half way between your knees and ankles.  (this also makes it easier to relax and have fun without having to worry about everything showing...lol)

sounds like fun...enjoy yourself.   (dont wear white...that is reserved for the bride)

keep in mind the silver shoes.  not yellow...not orange/coral...not green (they all need gold sandals)...maybe pinks or blues.

I'm thinking blues too...what color are your eyes and hair?  Are you fair or dark complexion... if you could find one a light to medium blue dress shirt with maybe some silver threads through it....and a really classy shirt can dress up the skirt if you have your heart set on it...use a silver chain belt....silver jewelry...you get the picture....

i have brunette hair and my eyes are hazel well more green and im very light complected! Thats sounds really great now if i just find all of that stuff LOL! I will have to shop around very soon! I looked at dresses today and YUCK is all i can say the ones are Ross were so UGLY!! I didnt like any of them and the one i like i tried on was too long made me short and did nothing for my figure!! So im off to my next fav store next time! May have to wait till next payday though! Any1 ordered stuff online? or know if that works out? I figured being in the store to actually try on is much better!!

I live in the middle of nowhere...I have to drive 40 miles just to get to a walmart and they have nothing for me..(plus size)  well there are clothes, but really only things to play in....

So I live for shopping on line....QVC is my favorite...it is also a shop at home channel...JcPenneys, Younkers....you know...reputable places....you can usually check out reviews and see if customers think things run small or shrink bad or whatever and you can base your decision on others....I'm a larger gal and order some stuff from Lane Bryant...My daughter is like a size 12 and she goes to newport news...spiegel...coldwater creek has a great outlet on line....fashion bug...sears....they are all out there...even kmart and target....

You usually have to pay return fees, that's why I check reviews so closely...

If you have hazel green eyes, there is a nice shade of green out there that would go well with the skirt and silver shoes...It's what I would call sage green...it has a silvery cast to it....

Here's a tip if you order online.  Before you hit "send" do a Coupon Online Code search .. go and do a search for the name of the store and see if there are any online coupon codes which give you "free shipping" or " X % off your order" .... Take a few mins to do this .. it sometimes takes a few codes to get one that's still valid (not expired) and works but I've saved tons of % on the shipping costs by merely doing a random search.  There's tons of coupon code websites out there driven by shoppes like us!

Kohls.com is store that has nice separates and dresses for weddings .. not sure online, but I know they do have a good selection of clothing in all sizes whenever I go online there and you can choose by your clothing maker to mix 'n match easily with the colors.

Keep us posted!
