Dress Me: Fall Engagement Party


I received an e-mail from a friend of mine in need of dress ideas for her own engagement party coming up in November, and she also has another friend’s engagement party the very next night. In her words, she’s only getting married once, so she’s OK with spending up to $300 on an amazing dress for her own engagement party. I completely agree with this, but if you can find something amazing for less, why not, right? Trust me, I found plenty of $300+ dresses that I was drooling over, but these are all affordable! Most of them are under $100!
For really special events in your life, you should plan your outfit for the occasion in advance so you are sure to feel spectacular. If you can find the right dress in advance you’ll have plenty of time to accessorize it without a crazy shopping frenzy the day of the event (I hate it when that happens!).
I’ve chosen 12 dresses that I think are gorgeous, and appropriate for a 20-something at a swanky engagement party. ASOS is my go-to online shop for affordable, trendy, glamorous items. My picks are super sexy, but not too revealing, and since I know this girl, I know she’s not afraid of short. But let’s be honest, it’s freaking cold in November in the Midwest (where she lives), so I picked lots dresses with sleeves. I have two dresses with long sleeves, and I have found that I wear them all the time! Even with long sleeves, in any of these gorgeous numbers, all eyes will be on you!
Find all of these dresses at ASOS. You can search by color, size, and sleeve length!
