So I thought I had it covered.  Last August, before engagement was anywhere near imminent I got the perfect white Lilly Pulitzer dress to wear to the rehearsal dinner I hoped to have one day in the far off future.    Back in 2009, I even got the white satin Kate Spade Karolinas I hoped I would have a reason to wear one day.  When I got engaged I figured I could just go out and pick my gown and be done with it.  I picked my dress in basically one day easy.  How naive I was.  First my mom mentions that I need a going away outfit, preferably white.  Then I was reading Vanessa Lachey's blog and realized that I would also want a white dress for the bridal shower.  That got me thinking I might just want a white dress for the bachelorette party as well.  Upon further thought, I figured it might be nice to wear white to the bridal luncheon as well.  That's 6 white dresses already!  I decided I better draw the line somewhere so I'm wearing hot pink to my engagement celebration.  Lucky for me I was able to score the Lilly Pulitzer Emma brand new from ebay for $17 (including shipping) for my bachelorette.  The lace work on this dress is so nice.

This dress looks way better on my 5'4" frame than the model which seldom ever happens but I'll take it.  You'd be surprised at how challenging it can be to find a white dress for 6 different occasions when price is in fact an object.  As for shoes, I just ordered another pair of karolinas so I'm all set on that front.  Three more Little White Dresses to go.

Ooh, I like that Emma dress and good job at scoring such a bargain, to boot! I bet you could wear other colors to the other events if you wanted to, but I think white is a nice touch and an underrated color. It looks fresh and crisp---I bet you'll be able to use those dresses later, too!
