I know a number of you are searching for that perfect dress (or three) to wear to all your summer wedding engagements—something appropriate for the occasion (to quote one reader, "non-appropriate equaling cheap material, too casual, or designed for 'clubbing'!"), something affordable (preferably under $100), and above all, something that will make other guests says "Wow!" (without taking attention away from the bride, of course).
It's a tall order, but I'm up to the challenge. To kick things off, here are 6 fabulous options from Nine West. We love them for their shoes and bags, and right now we're loving them for offering flattering party dresses at prices we can live with. Here are just a few that caught my eye:
