Reader Request: Bridesmaid Ensemble

I got this email from Paige this week,

Hi there...I saw this outfit for bridesmaids in Martha Stewart Weddings and would love it if I could find some cheaper alternatives. Could you help me? ... Thank you for your help.


{$569, via Martha Stewart Weddings}

As a side note does anyone else recognize that model as Holly, the winner of Bravo's Make Me a Supermodel? I am such a sucker for modeling competitions.

I think this ensemble is adorable - the shrug, the shoes!

I found a few pieces to echo the feel:

Metallic Satin Shrug - Forever 21 - $15.80
Silk Tricotine Robin Short Dress - J.Crew - $69.99 (Orig. $195.00)
Satin Finish Rhinestone Heel - $24.99
Navy Puff Brooch/Hair Clip (2) - $15.00 x 2 = $30
TOTAL: $140.70

I know it is more than I usually do for an outfit, but it's formal attire and if you take into account the discount on the dress, I think it's a pretty amazing deal.

What do you think of this look? Is it something you would wear or something you would want a bridesmaid to wear? Leave a comment!

Thanks for reading,

Happy Shopping!


  1. i do recognize holly!!! i LOVED make me a supermodel. when is the new season coming on?!

  2. Oooh, pretty! And I actually like the lavender and navy better than the pink and navy. Still the ensemble is lovely.

    P.s. I noticed a while back that Nicole Fox (from ANTM cycle 13) is one of Forever21's newest models.

  3. @Annie- good question! I haven't heard anything about a new season. I have also seen Jonathon of last season on ads for Heritage 1981 (one of F21's brands).

    @Unravelled Threads- I noticed Nicole Fox too! As well as Fo, Annaleigh, and Whitney. Anyone else notice Forever 21 snatching up ANTM models left and right?

  4. I love it. Thank you so much for your help. I love it all. Thanks again for helping me find such wonderful things for my bridesmaids...

  5. What great finds! I think I actually like the bright pink better {mostly because that particular shade of lavendar would make me look like a zombie}, but overall I think it's a dead ringer. {Besides, that dress from J. Crew comes in pink, so what am I even talking about?}

  6. love your blog. And i noticed holly also!
