I’m looking for a LWD for our rehearsal/welcome dinner and I haven’t found one. I tried on some in stores but for some reason, they were all really short on me (either mid-thigh or even higher) and I’m not that tall. I’m 5’8 and usually wear dresses that hit the knee or no more than 2 to 3 inches above my knee. I love lace and styles that scream Audrey Hepburn, but even with lace being very popular these days, I can’t seem to find the perfect LWD. Can you ladies please help?

Macy’s always has something. I found one to elope in, and a friend found one there as well.

@WYAtocha: Debenham’s. You have to pay international shipping but they have a huge selection.

@abirdword: Thank you!
@bebero: @SaharaRose: @sparklerunner: @MrsTillerResq: I’d never heard of ASOS (OR Modcloth, for that matter) till now!!! I just checked out their dresses!!!! I’m in LOOOOOOOVVVEEEEE!!!!! Thanks, ladies!!!! I’m a US street size 0 (for stores like Charlotte Russe and BCBG) or 00 (for stores like J Crew and White House Black Market), but some of you have mentioned that ASOS dresses run small, and the smallest size they have is a US 2…Based on your previous experiences with this site, do you think I should go with a 2, or a 4 instead? And how accurate are their size charts? I feel like with most retail stores in America, if I were ordering according to their size charts, I’d be a 2, or sometimes even a 4, but when I put them on, they’re huge on me!
@louisianablue: I saw that dress and fell in love with it but by the time I was ready to buy it, they didn’t have my size anymore…So I went to the Zara near me to see if one size bigger would fit and it was too big…Ugh! Darn my slackerdom! So glad you managed to buy it!
@CocoLoco523: That is one gorgeous dress and you look so incredibly beautiful and happy…Such an elegant look! Too bad they no longer have it in my size…:(
@GFerg: I’ll have to check it out! Thanks sooo much!
@Sea_Ashley: @ajillity81: White House Black Market is one of my favorite stores, too, but the last time I went, I didn’t like anything they had. Let me check online right now! Thank you sooo much!
@mvg120: Nordstrom has beautiful dresses! When I looked online, the dresses in my size that I liked were all sold out, so I think I’m going to go to the store this weekend to check it out. Thank you! And I love the dress you picked out for your rehearsal dinner!
@jdhall89: THAT is GORGEOUS!!!!!!! Will you be wearing that for your rehearsal dinner/bridal shower? It’s like a shorter version of the Jenny Peckham dress!!!!! Watters has such elegant dresses!!!
