Girls Weekend

I am so excited for this weekend because my friend Jessica and I are going up to Portland to have a girls weekend with our friend Melanie. We are going out for drinks and sushi Friday night. Then Saturday we are having some spa time at the Aveda Institute getting manicures and pedicures and such. Then we are going shopping! Could there be a more perfect girls weekend? I think not.

The shopping is actually needed dress shopping. Jessica needs a dress for our friends wedding and I need a dress for Mr. P's Law School graduation which is a mere 6 weeks away! So here is where I need your help. Dress shopping for me is a little bit of a nightmare. I don't really wear dresses. In fact I think I only own about 4. I would like to wear more but I have a horrible time finding dresses that fit me well. I'm really short, 5:3 and I have an extremely small chest so dresses usually feel too long on me or I can't fill them out. Here are some looks I like that I think might work on me:
These two are from Anthropology and I really like them both. The green one has beautiful detailing which you can't see in the picture. The blue one is nice because I can dress it up for graduation but dress it down for the rest of the summer and get a lot of wear out of it. Since I don't have a lot of dresses I would like to get something I can wear again in the future.
This is from Ann Taylor loft and I really like it but I don't know if it would work on my height very well.
Do you have any dress advise for me? Any great ideas of where to shop for a great dress?


  1. I love that ATL dress. Gorgeous! Do they have it in petite sizes? Petite sizing is excellent for us shorties (I'm 5'4"). Most stores say petites range from 5'0" to 5'4". Have fun this weekend! :)

  2. Good luck! I need to do some dress shopping myself and, like you, never seem to have much luck. This time I'm going to try Nordstrom. They have excellent customer service and every time I've used their employees to help me find something I've been successful.

  3. So hard to choose, they are all so pretty! You would look great in any of them!! Hope you have a super fun weekend, get your party shoes ready! :) XOXO

  4. They are so pretty. I love Anthropologie dresses...even though I only have one! I always love to look though! Gook luck choosing!

  5. Have fun!!! If you need dress help I am here and available! I think all of those are cute, you are not too short to pull those off- petite is the word!

  6. I am so looking forward to this weekend! We'll find the right dress, don't you fret!
