Do you know of a good online casual dress retailer?

Asked by EmpressPixie (14728points) September 4th, 2008

My friend has put me partly in charge of finding bridesmaid dresses for her wedding, but I am about to pull my hair out trying to find somewhere I can shop by style that also has casual dresses. Any help or favorite websites (that are well organized)?

I got my bridesmaids’ dresses from J. Crew – they have a pretty good selection of dresses, from simple to fancy, and a lot of them are things that the bridesmaids might actually wear again (and aren’t too horribly expensive).

I picked three different styles of dresses and two colors, and told my friends to mix and match – that way they all matched, but they could choose the style and color that looked best on them…

What is your ballpark price range? Particular style you’re looking for?

Well, the wedding is casual and in Hawaii during the summer so probably sundress-ish. The range is definitely $150 or less since we’re all flying to Hawaii.

Do they have to match?

I would try the sale section of the usual online boutiques:
shopbop
revolve clothing
active endeavors

I think JCrew is a little pricey. But it’s nice and classic. You’ll probably wear it again.

You can try Bluefly but you’ll probably have to dig. I think the majority of its inventory leans more to casual than you need.

Asos might have some good options. But I think they’re based in the UK and shipping might be a pain.

Heck…what about Ebay?

Though if you’re shopping now for a summer dress, you might have better options with places that have off season stuff?
