I like it – I like when MOB or MOG wear champagne colored dresses. Why are you unsure about it?

@MomToSix:  I think it’s perfect.  My mom is wearing something very similar to this for my wedding (she’s petite too) and her skirt comes just above the knee.

@MomToSix:  I think that’s a very beautiful and classy dress – it would go well at a rustic chic wedding!

If you feel comfortable with it, shoes would be a fabulous place to bring in the turquoise color you mentioned earlier. I agree that there’s no good place to put a brooch; a necklace would also look strange with the neckline I think. Instead, I’d do a bracelet and dramatic earrings.

I’m having this problem with my Mom too. She is 59 but looks young and is fit. Everything we find either looks too young/sexy or too old/frumpy!

Have you looked at the nordstroms website? They have some cute stuff. Also, when you said turquoise this dress came to mind and it comes in petite:

I think the dress you posted above is lovely, but you don’t seem super excited about it. Also try Ann Taylor (website). Their bridesmaids dresses are affordable and some of them could be very age appropriate MOB dresses.

I think it’s perfect. Especially since it does go to your knees! Great choice!

@MLDoddie:  Thanks! I almost used it for bridesmaids, but found a better deal. And then I wanted my Mom to wear it but she is worried about the tiers on her bottom half. I guess I really want *someone* to buy it 🙂

That dress is so cute! I think it is perfect for a mothers dress.So pretty and classy.
I personally would go with either gold or pearls. A pearl chocker length necklace would be so cute. If you want to add turquoise, this dress is perfect. Turquoise necklace would be pretty there too. For shoes, I would probably go with a nude color. Again turquoise would work beautifully. I think all you really need is some cute shoes and a gold bracelet and stud earings to look complete, but the other things could jazz it u
