Hi Glam Gal,
I am 69, petite, currently wearing a size 2. My grandchild is getting married this Summer.The wedding will be in a church with a reception later in the day. I just purchased this eggplant ruched dress and I would appreciate your honesty about whether it works.
Yes, We love the X-scape beaded ruched dress from Nordstrom and think it will look beautiful on you since you’re Petite. ( left click on dress to see enlarged version)
Normally we would not recommend a dress with a lot of rushing because it can make anyone over a size 4 appear heavier than they really are in photos. We suggest you take a photo of yourself in the dress and see if you like the way you appear. This is key because things don’t always look the same in a photo as they look in person.
If you are the Mother of the Bride or Groom, be sure to pick up a copy of my Tweak Your Chic Mother of the Bride eBook to help you look your absolute best!
|Lovely in Lace! Who says they don’t make dresses with sleeves anymore? We found a beauty. It’s an Adrianna Papell Lace overlay dress with fringed eyelash trim and scalloped edge. The boat neck is great for pear body types with narrow shoulders. This neckline will balance you out.(Nordstrom)|
|Twinkle! Dainty and delightful this Kathy Hilton cream sheath softly sparkles without stealing the show. (Nordstrom)|
|Breezy and Easy! You’ll feel feminine in this Adriana Papell Iridescent Chiffon Petal Gown with chiffon overlay, not to mention the empire waist on this dress is a good way to hide a bit of a tummy.(Nordstrom)|
|Fabulously Fuchsia! This bright Metallic Ruffle Jacket with Sash by Adrianna Papell is an elegant choice when you want to be more covered up.(Nordstrom)|
|Fashion Forward! The one shoulder look is the hot cocktail dress of the year. You’ll look stunning in this X-scape ruched satin number. Don’t you just love the rust color? It’s so warm and rich. This would be great for an early fall wedding so if you are going to one, scoop this up now. (Nordstrom)|
|Shine On! This classy black JS Boutique chiffon dress with its embellished jewel waistband and cape like sleeves make a dramatic statement. Black is always the perfect choice for an evening wedding. (Nordstrom)|
|It’s a wrap! This soft and sensational Maggie London Stretch Satin dress is a lovely choice for a wedding. It’s feminine and dreamy in this dusty shade of mauve.
