On The Hunt for Cocktail Dresses

Even though I still have some time to hunt, I have already started looking for the perfect dress for a friend’s wedding on February (in Vegas). Yeah, I like to be prepared.

I’ve been all over the internet trying to find the perfect dress. I have been looking for Sexy Cocktail Dresses; and by sexy I do not mean sluty or over the top. After all, showing off too much skin has never been my style.

Cocktail Dresses: My Top 2 Choices

There are three requirements for the perfect wedding guest dress:

  • it cannot be white (obviously).
  • it cannot be red, I don’t want to be confused as a bridesmaids.
  • it cannot be over the top; yes, it will be a formal wedding but not black tie.

So far, even I have been all over the place, these are my top 2 choices:

Sequined Strapless A-Line Chiffon Cocktail Dress

Sexy Cocktail DressesThis sequined dress is a perfect choice for a Vegas wedding, isn’t it? It is fun and sparkly, just like Vegas is. And even though it is sexy it is not an over the top look-at-me kind of dress. The gray color is subdued and doesn’t yell for attention.

The back straps are gorgeous. I’ve never worn a dress with a criss crossed back like this one…but there is always a first time for everything, right? I can always find a way to manage the girls in there. Any tips?

Chiffon Strapless Pleats Cocktail Dress

Chiffon Strapless Pleats Cocktail DressEven though I think yellow doesn’t go with my skin (it bring out the green in my skin tone) I really like this dress. I would only have to tan all winter in time for the February wedding. Or, I can always get it in another color; I was thinking royal blue since it will be one of the it colors for the winter months.

What attracted me to this dress was how different it is from all others. I am 100% sure that nobody else at the wedding will wear a dress that looks just like this strapless chiffon dress. The drape on the side is fun and unexpected which makes this dress my kind of dress.


What would you wear to a February Vegas wedding?

    I would definitely go with the yellow dress-but like you in a different color!! Royal Blue would be the perfect color for the fall–or even a brown color if you want a bit more subdued.

    That yellow one is adorable! I’m on the hunt for a cocktail dress that isn’t black – because I always end up with black.

    I love the flowy-ness (there must be a better word!) of the yellow dress, and I think it would look stunning in blue. I wish I could pull off something like that!

    I really like the silver one. It is beautiful! So fun and flirty.

  5. July 22, 2013 at 6:37 am

    I’m torn- I think both are cute!

    I love the back of the silver dress and the draping on the yellow one! Great choices. Sadly, I don’t do well in yellow. I agree with Lolli, it would be beautiful in blue.

    I like the yellow dress, but I’m a bit older than you, so take my opinion with a grain of salt. The gray dress is a gorgeous color, but it reminds me of a prom dress.

    I’ve never been to a Vegas wedding but love your dress choices. The yellow is more me but I love the sparkles on the first.

    Oooh love both of these dresses! they are fabulous! thanks for sharing! xoxo

  10. July 22, 2013 at 9:12 am

    Oh!!! I love them both! They are both super classy. I love the back on the first one.

  11. July 22, 2013 at 9:38 am

    Those are both beautiful. I think I like the style of the yellow one, but then I could never pull off either one …

  12. July 22, 2013 at 9:39 am

    I love how they are so flirtatious and flowing! I’d want something that covered me up a bit more. As I have a defined Baby mama body now. But they are quite stunning.

    I really like the yellow dress but I would choose a different color. If they had that in purple that would be the dress I would choose.

  14. July 22, 2013 at 10:32 am

    They’re both cute, but I would probably go with the yellow dress – so pretty! Thanks for the ideas, I’m going to need an outfit for a wedding next month.

    I like that gray one, really nice and with the right accessories that would be perfect for a vegas event.

    I like the silver one for a vegas event, classy yet vegas-ey :)

  19. July 22, 2013 at 12:46 pm

    Both look so pretty, but I would choose the silver one probably – it just looks so gorgeous!

  20. July 22, 2013 at 12:52 pm

    I would choose the flirty silver one super cute and sexy especially for a Vegas wedding. I wish I could wear something like that just not brave enough I always seem to go for the black cocktail dress for events I go to but always wish I could do something different. Yellow one is pretty as well but I love the silver one.

    While I love them both, I think I like the first one best. Love the criss cross in back and the sparkle!

  22. July 22, 2013 at 3:15 pm

    I love persunmall and those dresses are beautiful!

  23. July 22, 2013 at 3:29 pm

    I like them both, but the first one is my fav! :)

  24. July 22, 2013 at 4:19 pm

    I love the cut of the yellow dress. I don’t know if yellow is a winter color.

  25. July 22, 2013 at 5:12 pm

    These are gorgeous dresses!!! I love the yellow!!!

  26. July 22, 2013 at 6:44 pm

    They’re both great but I’m not one for backless at a wedding. I’d go with the yellow!

  27. July 22, 2013 at 8:40 pm

    Ooooh I LOVE LOVE LOVE that top dress, beautiful!

  28. July 22, 2013 at 9:52 pm

    They both looks great but for the wedding I choose yellow :D

  29. July 22, 2013 at 11:03 pm

    I love the yellow number. the color yellow may not be easy to pull off but when you can, it looks fantastic!
