Over the weekend, I went to an outdoor wedding, which was totally lovely except for the fact that Saturday happened to be the hottest day Oregon’s had in three years. The temperature allowed the guests to bond very quickly by comparing the size of our back sweat stains, but damn, it was an uncomfortable afternoon. I felt so grateful that I’d picked up a cute, breezy dress the week before (that green floral number on the left, in fact!), so I thought it might be helpful to round up some other dress options to get everyone through the rest of the sweltering summer wedding season in style and (relative) comfort.

How much do I love Stevie Nicks? This is a woman who literally shot cocaine up her butt and also sings like an angel. We loved her as part of Fleetwood Mac and we loved her solo. And we especially loved it when she was on “Oprah” not too long ago. Oprah, plagued by all the debaucherous things Stevie had done in the past, couldn’t even deal with asking her anything real, so she was all, “STEVIE! How do you KEEP! Your SKIN! Looking so FRESH!” In Oprah voice, you know.
We are so stoked that Fleetwood Mac is getting the band back together, especially since we were like, five years old the last time they released an album. Plus, Stevie has to die for style, though we’d hardly recommend you copy her look line for line. Come on, do you really want to look like a consumptive rat catcher lady dressed by a flock of whitedoves?
Instead, we suggest you update your Stevie-worshiping look with one of these fine frocks. Keep reading »
