I need a dress for my cousin's wedding in the middle of October in Virginia...but I have to buy said dress all on a college budget (I'm thinking $60 maximum). I have these Steve Madden shoes which I love dearly, so something that goes along with them would be FANTASTIC!
Other that that specification, I'm just looking for a fall dress that I can wear after the wedding. Something stylish, but something that would quickly be turned into something professional. I just lost some weight, so I'm probably a size 6 dress. Oh, I'm not really sure if this is a possible request, but I seriously LOVE the way Zooey Deschanel dresses, so maybe I am looking for something like that?
Thank you so much in advance!!"
Since I know the clothes are going to pale in comparison to the website I'm about to link to, let's talk about the garments first. The dresses are simple but maintain a very Zooey shape. They can be worn professional or casually, depending on the accessories. Since Virginia in October feels a lot like Virginia in December, go ahead and prepare for the cold with a cardigan as well. As for that website, I offer to you What Would Zooey Deschanel Wear?
1. Club L Skater Dress With Belt ($38 on sale)
2. Topshop Skater Dress ($40)
3. Lurex Lace Skater Dress ($45)
4. Maurices Essential Cardigan ($30)
5. Blue Heaven Queen Opaque Tights ($3)
6. Bueno Natural Straw Clutch ($10 on sale)

I prefer the hard-core body modification scene but can also appreciate a ruffle or bow when I see one. Beauty and barrels of maternity/kid crap are my specialties.
