My sister-in-law was a bridesmaid about two years ago for one of our friends and she wore this pretty, long, taffeta dress from Pricilla of Boston (in "blackberry" as they call it...which is like an iridescent purple/black)
It was very pretty on her, but she didn't really have anywhere else to wear it!
So....with all of her bridal showers, teas, etc coming up...she was wanting some new cute dresses. I chopped this one off to around her knee, hemmed it, and added a hidden pocket! :)
Oooo I'm so excited to see her wear it! :)
