Party Dresses...

I have a fairly fancy wedding to attend in September so I've been looking around for some different glamorous dresses. Here are a couple of my favorite finds so far...
The Brush Viva Organza dress from Marc by Marc Jacobs ($458) is so far out of my price range it's ridiculous. But I'm obsessed with the pleats and draping plus I feel like it's sexy but still really elegant. 

12TH STREET BY CYNTHIA VINCENT 275
This 12th Street by Cynthia Vincent strapless mini-dress ($275) might be a little too "day" for a glam wedding but I like the print a lot and I think it would be unexpected. I always think it's best to go for the unexpected!
CAMILLA AND MARC CREME CHARLOTTE FROCK 528
So I'm not actually a huge fan of this dress (Camilla & Marc Creme Charlotte Frock $528) but at the same time I think it's really fun and if you have the right boobs it might actually be wearable. It just looks like a ballerina or fairy childhood fantasy fulfillment dress but on me, because I'm very pale, it might be my very own version of Carrie Bradshaw's "naked" dress! 
And finally my favorite even though it's insane and tacky...

God how I wish this was an 80s-prom themed wedding! I always feel like cringing when thinking about Betsy Johnson probably because in the 8th grade I thought she was just the HEIGHT of fashion and style. But I can't help it. I love her. You have to admit the woman can make insanely awesome party dresses. This might not be one of them but I want to dance the electric slide in it anyway.

I think I'm in love with that Camilla & Marc Creme Charlotte Frock dress. It looks so fragile <3

The Marc Jacob dress is also very nice, I especially like the color.
