Think Pink

The dawn of spring brings with it a flood of wedding invitations - and the perfect excuse to choose a candy-colored frock for this year's celebrations.

A dress with a cascading silk ruffle, and Grecian-inspired twists at the shoulders.

And a sweetly-alluring back.

Banana Republic Dress; Banana Republic Clutch, Tahari Pumps; Pearl and Diamond Earrings

Dress Sizing: I had been running into sizing inconsistencies at Banana Republic the past few seasons, finding myself in anything from a size 4 to a 10. Much to my surprise, the size 6 (my normal size) fit perfectly in the Sleeveless Drape Dress, but keep in mind that I have a small bust. If you're well-endowed, you'll want to size up. Another tip: this dress has an incredibly low neckline - be sure to invest in the appropriate undergarments. The bottom of the dress glides easily over hips - with enough room left to indulge in a slice (or two) of wedding cake.

  8. What a sweet dress! Very appropriate for a wedding. I'm dying to wear my new floral dress to a wedding, but no one I know is having a (traditional) wedding! Graduation parties it is.

  18. I could not think of a lovelier woman more suited to this dress. On the BR website the color is called "Majesty", and you easily live up to it.
