More Cowbell #3 - More Short Dresses

Wednesday, February 17, 2010

So, here is the third installment of my "More Cowbell" series.
I got a fever... and the only prescription is...  More Cowbell!
And maybe, some more short dresses?

Not dresses that are more-short, but more dresses that are short! ;)

Short dresses are an ongoing trend for weddings and if you are still hesitant about considering one for your special day, why not consider changing into one for the reception or a small portion of the night?

This is what I did! I love short dresses and since my wedding gown was blush pink, I changed into a shorter white dress right before our cake cutting and dancing.

While I am partial to my own short gown, here is a round-up of some of my other favorites!

Oscar De La Renta dresses (source and source)

Gavin Douglas dress (source)
Classic Audrey Hepburn in Funny Face (source)

I have this saved on my computer, but cannot, for the life of me, remember the source.
Please let me know if you know.
In the meantime, isn't the colored crinoline to-die-for?

And how could I not mention the short version of the infamous Vivienne Westwood wedding gown worn by Carrie in Sex and The City? Not necessarily my style, but definitely a big ol' statement for a short lil'dress.

Nancy - you look soo sooo stunning in your wedding photos! I love! :)

I considered a short dress. Thank GAWD I didn't get one though, because I went to a baby shower at the beach 3 days before my wedding + my legs got totally BURNT! How horrible would that have been!?

If there was ever a reason to wear a short dress, it's to show off some hot shoes like yours! Sweet and sassy!
