It's going to be a beach wedding, and I've been told that anything more than sandals and a sundress will be, well, overdressed. That said, I'm meeting a lot of his extended family, and want to look my best. I love jewel tones, and really dislike pastels. I'm hoping to spend around $100 on the dress."

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.
