Bridesmaid Dress Pick Of The Week: Dessy Black Lace Cocktail Dress

Time to start thinking about a fresh new season’s worth of bridesmaid dress ideas! This one from Dessy caught my attention right away for several reasons! For starters, who doesn’t love black lace? This classic cocktail length little black dress is is classically styles with a strapless neckline and a gently shirred skirt.

The underlayer (shown here in a neutral topaz tone) is a matte satin and is available in 80 (yes, I really said 80) different colors! Yay! So much fun. I should also mention that the lace itself is also available in two colors: black or ivory. I am personally more obsessed with the black lace, but a bride could design a fun reception dress or rehearsal dinner dress using the ivory lace with a pop of color beneath.

Can I also mention that I am LOVING the retro hair clip shown with this dress? It would make a fab gift to your best girls and add a touch of glamor to your wedding pictures.
