We're going to the courthouse, and we're gonna get eloped..next month. I've been searching for a dress that is casual but elegant and finally settled on this dress, but it's sold out in my size. Please oh please can you help me find something similar? I'm a size 4 and would like the dress to be cream or white. The less expensive the better. We are getting eloped after all. Oh, and I live in Alaska where there aren't many shopping options, so being able to order it online is a must. Thank you!"
Hi, Cherie! Congratulations! Enjoy your courthouse wedding. Sometimes the simpler the better, right? Here are a few options for you to consider. I think number 4 is a sho0-in, but I could only find it in a size XS. It looks pretty forgiving, though, so I bet you could pull it off!
The original - ASOS Midi Dress with Soft Skirt ($58)
1 - Topshop Lace Strappy Dress ($65)

Layla here: At a strapping 5'2", I've got plenty of tricks up my sleeve for fellow petite girls who need to look fashion fabulous. Plus, I make all of my beauty purchases online just so I can get free trial size samples in the mail. If you're not sure about a product, chances are I've tried it! I'd be glad to recommend my favs. I also have a knack for men's apparel and gifts, especially geek guy gifts, thanks to the expertise of my own gadget-inclined guy.
