Since I have an upcoming friends’ wedding in two weeks, I started searching for a pretty embroidered dress to wear. The price was also an important factor as I had a budget under 100 dollars. But as you know me, I am also picky, so it really was a fashion quest to find the right dress.
After browsing numerous websites, I decided to place an order on VIPme.com. Join me below for my review to find out what qualities a summer dress has to have to make you look amazing as a wedding guest and if this dress has risen to the expectations.
1. FINDING THE PERFECT DESIGN FOR A WEDDING GUEST DRESS IN THE SUMMER:
- First of all, I was looking for a dress that was light enough to wear in the summer, but also modest.
I really recommend not going overboard with showing too much skin, we want to keep it classy. There is nothing worse than guests trying to upstage the bride or trying too hard. Showing both cleavage and legs is generally considered as not very elegant, and it is wise to focus on only one feature. This is why the design of this floral embroidery dress seemed right, as shown in my VIPme review here.
I like how the necklace is delicate and the sheer fabric puts the legs on display, without being vulgar. It gives it a dreamy, delicate air and I feel like in a fairy tale, without looking over-dramatic.
The length is just right and it will not make me trip when dancing.
2. CHOOSING THE RIGHT COLOR FOR A SUMMER WEDDING GUEST DRESS:
- Secondly, the color is important. Being summer, I advice you to go with pastel or light tones.
These kind of tones are very trendy right now. Mine is a pastel teal color which looks good with fair skin but would also look good with tan or dark skin tones. Of course, if the bride is having a color theme, you should follow it. As a general rule, do not wear white, unless you are asked to by the bride. Wearing the little black dress to a summer wedding is something I really do not recommend, there are so many amazing colors to express joy that it simply isn’t a right time to wear it as black, no matter how elegant, it is a sad non-color.
3. HOW TO TELL IF THE EMBROIDERED DRESS DESIGN IS OF QUALITY:
- If you choose a dress with embroidery, makes sure it is done well by looking with zoom at the store’s photos.
This might sound like an obvious tip, but it is an important step. Cheap embroidery is really in bad taste and it can ruin a dress. A quality website will have a close-up photo of the embroidery or it will let you zoom in. VIPme.com has such photos and they are of great help in assessing the quality. Inspecting their pics, I decided that the embroidery was well made. After receiving my order, I can confirm that they look as good in real life. And they are stunning to photograph, as you can see from my own photographs in my VIPme review below.
4. PICKING THE DRESS FOR YOUR BODY SHAPE:
- This embroidered dress is perfect because it comes in multiple sizes and it is flattering for both slim and plus-size women. The sheer fabric will hide imperfections and give your legs a smoother look.
5. HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT DRESS SIZE:
- When ordering, I recommend measuring yourself first and getting the bigger size.
For example, if your waist is 67 cm and the sizes are 60/65/70 etc do not go with 65 (smaller). It is always so much easier to fix a big dress rather than a small one. The idea that an online dress should fit perfectly is something I disagree with. Considering that each of us has a unique shape, that seems unlikely. This is why small alterations to special occasion dresses are very usual. Even with those (if you will need them), the cost of buying a dress online is far smaller than making one as a custom order in town.
Regarding size, keep in mind that you will drink and eat during the wedding, that you will dance and it might be hot, so you it is not wise to pick a tight dress. Leave a bit of room for slight weight changes.
The dress I ordered from VIPme fitted me well, it didn’t need alterations. I choose a size S.
To conclude my review of this dress, I am honestly very happy with my order. You can view from my own photographs that it looks amazing. I am sure that I will get compliments at my friends’ wedding, I actually showed pics of it to my best friend and she loved it too. For 72.99 dollars (they have free shipping on order over 59 dollars), this dress is really a great purchase. I can still wear it to an elegant date, or to other special occasions. It goes well for both day and night venues.
