Finalist #6: 57 Grand Bridesmaids Giveaway

Posted by on Feb 9, 2010 in Blog | 6 Comments

Um… Check out these shoes?  SOLD!  I love these friggin shoes.  You could pair the dress and the shoes with a burlap sac coat and it would still be awesome!  Plus, it uses yellow, so that’s just my bias…..

Hello ladies of Always a Bridesmaid and 57 Grand!
I am so excited about the opportunity to enter in this fantastic giveaway!  I am getting married September 18th north of Pittsburgh, PA at a 1920′s mansion.  We are having the ceremony in the sculpture garden among the trees, a swing band for the reception, and we are hoping that the day will have a very “classy Jazz-age dinner party” feel to it.  I think that the 57 Grand “Riverside” dress has the perfect demure, slightly-retro sensibility that would be the perfect complement to our wedding’s style, and, most importantly, I think it would look lovely on my ladies!  (P.S., I love the bow so much, that really, I want one for
myself!)  My bridesmaids live in Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Albany, and London (UK!), and I am planning the wedding from Boston, where my fiance and I are in graduate school–as you can imagine, this has made bridesmaid dress shopping a challenge, so the fact we can order online with 57 Grand is a real lifesaver!
The outfit I made for the re-wear board is pretty versatile–you could wear it to Sunday brunch, on a date, or to a bridal shower, but I think it would be great to wear to work on a day that you’d want to look extra snazzy (hence the super adorable yellow wool laptop bag).  Other than the dress, of course, my main inspiration is the pair of Seychelles shoes that I have been pining over!  Plus, the outfit has a vintage charm to it that I think works well with the dress and with my obsession with finding extra cute things on Etsy.
Well, that’s about it, thanks for considering my board for this fantastic giveaway!  All the best,  Amanda
