Say Yes to Which Dress?

I did a post back in May before my ten year high school reunion with several pictures of dresses
I tried on and loved and let you comment on which one you thought I chose to wear. 

WELL.... I have a wedding coming up this weekend in my hometown and went 
through the same process last night with choosing a dress. I thought this would make for another fun 
blog post. 

I've tried to cut back on spending and am trying to do do better about analyzing "needs" verses "wants."I set up some new guidelines for spending, HOWEVER I am justifying this spend a little more because: A. I have two weddings this fall (fall weddings are just tough and require the right
kind of dress) B. The wedding is in my hometown and I have no idea whom I may run into
or see so this calls for stepping up my A game, right?! Ok, good... glad you agree on my splurge! 

Ok, so shopping destination? 
Team Macy's. 

Brand to look for? 
Rachel Roy and Bar 111. 
(Love, Love, Love these brands)
Oh, to be rich and have a closet full of pretty dresses..... sigh. 

Option 1:
Light Plum Rachel Roy cocktail pleated mini dress.  

Option 2:
Dark Hunter/Teal Green Rachel Roy Bennett sleeveless banded waist dress. 

Option 3:
Bar 111 burnt orange/navy fitted short sleeve sweetheart colorblocked mini. 

Option 4:
Bar 111 dark teal classic fitted knee length dress. 

So, there you go. I narrowed it down to my top 4 for the purpose of this post. I thought about disclosing 
prices, but they all run close to same price. Anywhere from $69-99. 

Rachel, Alison, and Matt you are excluded from commenting on this post! Have fun and I hope
you let me know which dress you like best! I'm very excited with my choice! 

I will do a dress reveal post next week on my Weekend Rewind, What's in my Bag post. 
Stay tuned...  


  1. Although I love option #1 and would choose it for myself (if I had your legs), my two favorites for you are option #2 and option #4. Option #4 looks more corporate/conservative than fun yet very classy, but they are all super cute. I think you should spill the beans early to me if no one else comments... :)

  2. I like 3 the best, but I also like 2.

  3. What?! Glad I saw this after the post or else I would be offended I couldn't comment!!


What’s The Story, Brooke?

I'm Brooke. Brooke Story to be exact... hence the title of my blog. I'm southern, still barely in my twenties, and have a few too many lip glosses in my purse.
