My grandmother is not old, older maybe in age but certainly not in spirit. So we actually had a difficult time locating a dress for her. Since my wedding date is fast approaching, we had to find a dress as quick as possible. We began at the Dillard's website to get our bearings and narrow our options. I saw several that my mother would have loved but that's not exactly the same thing!
So in choosing a more appropriate ensemble, my grandmother was leaning towards a layering look, such as a jacket dress. We all agreed this was a wise decision. So that's where we are at the moment.
One was a 3 piece skirt set in a beautiful stone hue from Le Bos with a tiered chiffon skirt, scoop neck camisole and open front jacket. The details of shimmer trim added a nice touch on the jacket. It certainly was a lovely outfit that could be worn for other social affairs.
The other fashionable dress and jacket from SL Fashions with an open front jacket and flutter sleeves was also very attractive. The surplice v-neck was quite flattering as well as the flowing chiffon skirt. This pretty and feminine style came in a steel blue/gray shade which was a definite plus. A perfect dress in a neutral but smart color and style.
My grandmother is tall and slim and would look lovely in either of these affordable and stylish dress sets. Now it's up to her to be a well-groomed and best dressed grandmother of the bride.
