I originally bought this dress to wear to my rehearsal dinner last year. My mom and I were at the J.Crew Factory outlet (where I miraculously found those dreamy dresses for all of my bridesmaids at a ridiculously good price), checking out the selection of white cocktail dresses for my bridal shower, bachelorette party, and other wedding-related events. I ended up picking this light pink one instead--I loved the fluffiness of the skirt and the light pink color so much.
For the rehearsal dinner, I added some white accessories--shoes and a statement necklace--to up the "bridal" elements of the dress, but I love it the way it looks and feels with nude shoes and a more everyday necklace.
