As I wrote earlier, we have decided upon Wine and Lapis. (A rumor from Chicago tells me that Wine is soon to be discontinued for Sangria, but because David’s is a national chain, I’m not worried– if anything, the ladies can get their dresses in Wine on sale.)
Amy made a delightfully useful spreadsheet with each possible dress in item number, along with the colors it comes in (Wine and Lapis, Wine only, or Lapis only), and details, bodice style, and description of the skirt. She assures me that as people report in on the dresses they’ve purchased, I can fill in their names and have all information in one place. For shoes, I just told them to choose black ones they liked.
Here are photos of some of their options, in either Wine or Lapis:
Ladies, if you’re reading– remember that you need to order by September, and to remind the consultants that you receive twenty dollars off of your dresses. And let me know when you’ve chosen!
