A Summer Challenge! Help!

dievca’s friend is getting married in August and is hosting a formal wedding.
Translation – long gown. dievca doesn’t have any long gowns other than casual maxi-dresses, so she is at a bit of a loss.  The kelly green vintage dress she wore to another NYC wedding is a polyester knit under the fringe – not comfortable for Summer.
So, she’s on the lookout for a dress.

Everything dievca admires, cut-wise, tends to be Navy, Forest Green, etc. Not summery colors…and she doesn’t want to wear black to a wedding.  dievca knows, she knows – it’s not a trauma, she has time, but she has only found two possibilities that don’t look like a “kid’s” prom dress and they are $$$.

Please take a look and offer any suggestions/links….Thanks.

dievca’s current options:

Ann Demeulemeester Emerald Silk Gown $1191

Ann Demeulemeester Emerald Silk Gown $1191 back Ann Demeulemeester Emerald Silk Gown $1191

Prabal Gurung Charmeuse Gown $3625

Prabal Gurung Charmeuse Gown $3625

Prabal Gurung Charmeuse Gown $3625 back

    Maybe have one made? Bet you can get the fabric (silk) for a steal and find an FIT student in need. Use your dream gown as a template.

      Thanks — I’ve had 2 red satin dresses (short) in the past. The draping can be touchy body-wise….foundation garments need to be sleek and that would make the dress hot. Hmmm~

  6. Navy not a summer colour? I donˋt see why not – same for emerald green… much depends on the cut and fabric I would think? Anyway this Demeulemeester you show is just brilliant (but Iˋm such a fan so maybe biased :-)) xxx

      The navy blue gown I liked looked heavier…I just had an aha! moment writing a reply to Pelelotus about a Christian Dior collar — I have a long black satin Maxi (Vince), white crisp button down and can feature a jeweled collar. Might be an option! a much less expensive option. XO

    The emerald one with the arm drape is gorgeous. Based on the rest of the suggestions I think you really want something with good flow and an eye catching aspect. Consider a very wide leg one piece jumpsuit. Might be more affordable and just different enough to be dramatic.

      Hello Ret! Good to hear from you. I hope all is well. The jumpsuit sounds like an interesting avenue. I just end up with problems of fit — the curves, shorter waist and being overly short, makes finding one a bear. Black would be easy – colored? Not so easy~
      Happy 4th to you and yours. Miss you. XO
