    I need to find the right cover-up. So far I’ve purchased a chiffon cardigan from j crew but I think it will be too long. I love all of your options but I think I need something a little more casual and sweater-y. I am hounding Nordstrom Rack, TJMAXX, Loehmanns, Marshalls, Anthropologie, and J Crew for options.

    @Docgirl-I love those caplets!  They are so fashionable!  I am getting married on January 2, 2010 and I am thinking about wearing one of those ‘capes’ that would cover my dress totally-just incase it might be snowy.  I am having my wedding in Iowa, and we have some bad winters. I wouldn’t mind there being snow on the ground for my wedding, I would love it actually.  I would just prefer that I wouldn’t snow ON my wedding day or the day before it!

    @drgirl.. I love all of your choices.  They are so fun! Especially the third one, but I’m a little vintage at heart.  They all seem really cool though (i mean degree wise..haha) Do you think they’ll do the trick of keeping you warm?

    As far as matching your dress, which I love by the way, I think you are going to have to consider color.  In the pics of your dress I thought it looked a little champaign-ish so I would think the first two would clash.  I love the third as I said but it might cover up that great tulle detail at the top of your dress.  I think the 4th may be best (and it’s super fun looking) assuming again that next to each other he colors aren’t horrid.

    … or I might b compeletely off on my color memory….  wouldn’t be the first time my short term memory failed me..haha.

    OOOOHHHH Doctorgirl!  I love the first and third.  Tres chic! 

    Me?  I have no idea yet if I’m going to need one or not.  But I have a few ideas if need be.

    I am wearing this stretch lace thing I found on ebay. I’m not in love with it… I think the lace is kinda generic looking and it might match my grandma’s curtains, but it comes in my size (2X), it is 3/4 sleeve, I didn’t want short sleves, and it is not opaque, which were my requirements. Plus, it’s only $44. If you guys have any other affordable suggestions that I can get in Plus size, by all means, let me know!

    @llaurra – I think it’s super cute.  simple and beautiful.  …but if you think it’s boring maybe you can spice it up.  you could dye it, tea stain it, or maybe even add some beading or a giant amazing broach or flower. If you think it’s generic then make it your own!!

    Doctorgirl – your dress is insanely fabulous!!!!! I love the 1st one & the 3rd….#4 is very "haute couture" looking…but I don’t know if it would actually provide any "little bit of warmth"….can’t wait to see which ever one you pick with your dress!
