It will be a very casual wedding (they are arriving and going down the aisle on tandem bikes) but both wearing white wedding dresses. The bridesmaids have been asked to wear a dress of our choosing in a warm color (red, yellow, pink). I would love something in coral. I love Lilly Pulitzer in kind of a funky way and have a lot of shift dresses, they look good on me, but I am not married to that shape. I am not a huge fan of the vintage style of tight top and flared skirt (Mod Cloth has a lot of this) but would go with something flowy that is not in a shift shape. Due to the casual nature of the wedding I was looking for something in a nice cotton or linen that was not a beach cover up or super casual. I would also be interested in a print or pattern. Something long would be a nice change for me if it worked on a shorter person. My max budget is $300.00 but would be happy for something less but since its my only baby sister want it to be something special. So looking forward to your help!"

Mitchy here: I'd be happy to never put on another pair of pants. What this means for you is that I love all kinds of dress shopping - especially cute patterned dresses and party dresses. I also love colorful apparel and jewelry as well as vintage-styled home decor. Other things I don't usually put on resumes: expert cat wrangler, road tripper, and connoisseur of bad movies.
