My fiance and I are planning our destination wedding in Jackson Hole WY and I'm having trouble finding bridesmaids dresses. I recently came across your Personal Shopper: Texas hill country bridesmaid's dresses for Sarah B.'s wedding post from last year and my heart skipped a beat! The feel of her rustic country wedding is exactly what I had envisioned for my own right down to the style of dresses you picked for her! The only difference is I'm looking for shades of lavender and purple. I had hoped maybe some of the options you provided Sarah would still be available at some of the stores but the are no longer available. I'd love to see what you could find for me that's available now. I'm also in the $150 price range and will also be doing the cowboy boots for fun. I def would like cocktail length dresses and we'll be getting married in September so it'll still be warm yet comfortable temps. Anything you can suggest would be more than greatly appreciated! I hope you don't mind doing another personal shop for such a similar kind of wedding. Desperately needing your help, Nikki P"
Hey Nikki! I'm Found of You. You are just the sweetest. Seriously. We never, ever have ladies apologize for sending in similar requests, and yours isn't even that similar, considering it's been awhile and you need some purple in your life! Of course, I'm very happy to help you out. I found you some options ranging from deep eggplant to pale dusty iris, and from casual to slightly more fancy. Good luck in your search! (P.S. If you like any of the Modcloth dresses, order them ASAP. That site sells out fast.)

Found of You here: Rather than find you the perfect LBD, look to me for the perfect accessories! As an accessorizing whiz, I can style your "What do I wear with it?!" clothing, dig up awesome maternity and nursing clothes (I'm a Mommy!), and make your tootsies look perfect in fabulous flats (or pumps, or sandals). Oh, and if you need to give someone (ME!!) a gift, I say buy 'em food and books, and I'd love to help you find just the right stuff.
