Dressing the Maids

This weekend the MOH and I flew down to LA to visit the other bridesmaid, go dress shopping, and have a fun girls' weekend.

We went makeup and perfume shopping first, which was great and totally deadened our noses, but the MOH did find a nice scent, and I got some awesome peacock eyeshadows. After that we had a yummy vegan lunch, then we got down to business and went to a store that sells reproduction vintage style dresses.

Now, I'd like to note that I have no attachment to the ladies wearing the same dress; I just specified a black dress, not too short. However, they decided they'd like to coordinate, so we thought they could each find their own style from this store. Here are some of the ones they tried on:

The BM really liked this one.

The MOH tried this one on. It was a little too sailor-y for us.

The BM tried this one on and it looked adorable on her. It's still in the running to become America's Top Bridesmaid Dress!

This was the MOH's favorite dress, but alas, they only had black and pink, not black and red. I love pink, but I just don't think we'd all look good together with these dresses. Too bad!

I had the BM try this one on just for fun. It was as hideous as it looks in the photo! We laughed.

So, we didn't end up buying anything, but we found some strong candidates, and are going to do some more looking at online options. I think they're going to look adorable!!

Love them all! esp the top, black one for the wedding. Glad you all had a good time. By the time we got back from the game on Sat. I was in no condition to see anyone, myself. VERY busy weekend.

I really don't think "BM" is an appropriate term for your devoted bridesmaid. ;-)
