My dream dress had that sort of falling off the shoulders thing going on and I tried on a dress like that and my bra straps were all "Hey! Look at me!" So then I actually spent several minutes thinking of ways to contain my bra straps and then the smarter part of my brain kicked in and said, "Hey!!...Hey Dummy!! You do not want to spend that day thinking about your bra straps!" And that smarter part of my brain was right.
My original dress criteria was a) sage green, b) long and c) comfortable. What I didn't have on that list was affordable. And Oh! My! this dress was on CRAZYSALE!
Oh and it's not even a dress. The top part is a tank and jacket (sold as 1 item) and the bottom is a simple easy skirt. It's all pull on, like pajamas. No zippers or buttons or snaps, oh my!
My daughter and her maid of honor really liked it, so that was that. Oh and did I mention that the top part was originally $109 and the skirt originally $59? And that I got them both for $54? I couldn't believe it! I had that in my pocket.

Before I found my dress, we went to the bridal shop where my daughter had gone the first time with her maid of honor. She decided on the dress she originally liked but they no longer had it in her size. She grabbed her MOH's camera to show it to me and believe it or not, it was the dress in the picture that I used in the post below. She ordered it and it will come in on her birthday.
Later, we met up again. It was "Meet The Parents" night. Unfortunately, we did not get to meet the groom's dad. He has multiple sclerosis and was having a bad day. But I did get to meet the groom's mom.... e-mail me if you want to hear about it. That's all I'll say, except: I love my dress!
