I am all for being creative. No longer do I worry who will see me in the same standard black cocktail dress I own. It has officially moved to the back of my closet (next to my retired Wonder Woman Halloween costume).
This upcoming weekend, my husband and I are attending his work colleague's wedding. I do not know a soul going. The dress code is "Formal Attire Invited" and one of my former bridesmaids' dresses is itching to come out and make a guest appearance. It's a sky blue satin strapless with a ribbon detail at the waist by Nicole Miller. It was the prettiest one I've ever worn, but I don't know if I have the courage to show up in a mass-produced bridesmaids' dress. I'm curious: Would you do it? —Linda Seidman, Senior Editor, Modern Bride
