    Thank you! You’re really helping me with ideas for my niece’s wedding in June. I had the same idea about the wrap, perfect for an outdoor summer wedding. BTW, you look stunning in all of those outfits😊

  2. Helen Hartley on April 23, 2022 at 6:39 pm

    Very lovely!

  3. Terri Smith on April 23, 2022 at 6:40 pm

    This video was perfect timing for me, as I have a wedding to attend in two weeks. Ordered the navy dress from Dillards! I live in south GA so we do not have access to Dept store shopping areas. Thank you for sharing this!! Can’t wait for it to arrive! Not sure if I will wear navy pumps or beige cork high heel sandals. I still ponder over the hose issue.

  4. Paula Francisca C on April 23, 2022 at 6:42 pm

    That plum color dress looks great on you!

  5. Sandy Garcia on April 23, 2022 at 6:43 pm

    I do not wear dresses, I need some pant options please…tfs…

  6. Sheila Sheehan on April 23, 2022 at 6:43 pm

    I would prefer plain color with my arms covered

  7. Yvonne Adrian on April 23, 2022 at 6:45 pm

    My youngest son is getting married in June in a garden style wedding. I am having a tough time finding a dress. I have one solid navy long dress as a back up. However, I would prefer a midi or maxi which is way more casual. I am not a fan of florials but prefer more contemporary prints so my search continues.

  8. sue kelly on April 23, 2022 at 6:47 pm

    Kay, I so enjoy your videos, and learn so much. My daughter needs advice on what to wear to a late October wedding in Traverse City, Mi My daughter is petite, 5’2", and 140lbs, and dresses normally in jeans and tee shirts, she loves midi dresses. She is considering slacks and nice top. She could really use your advice. I would appreciate your input.

  9. Pamela Johnson on April 23, 2022 at 6:48 pm

    I’m new to your channel I loves it

  10. Teresa Darnielle Morse on April 23, 2022 at 6:51 pm

    Fun ideas…I have a friends formal birthday party coming up. Thank you

  11. Diane Murray on April 23, 2022 at 6:53 pm

    Would love your ideas for wearing dressy pants to a wedding. Thanks.

  12. Maria Felix on April 23, 2022 at 6:54 pm

    You look so cute, I like the 3rd and 4rth ones!!😊

  13. katy castanos on April 23, 2022 at 6:55 pm

    Thank you Kay❣️I especially like the second floral dress on you❣️🥰💕 Do you think the brown shoes might be a little too casual, unless you were in the mountains ? God bless you❣️🥰🙏🏻💕

  14. Barbara Golden on April 23, 2022 at 6:56 pm

    Love that fur capelet. So glamorous!

  15. Sammy Lewis on April 23, 2022 at 6:56 pm

    Beautiful dresses but would have liked to see the full length of the dresses on the video.

  16. The Heart of a Woman on April 23, 2022 at 6:57 pm

    Just stumbled on your channel looking for a dress type to wear to a wedding in Domincan Republic I am attending while on a vision mission trip. This video was great!

  17. Cindy Auton on April 23, 2022 at 6:57 pm

    Loved the dresses! And you wear them all well. Lovely!

  18. shyni joseph on April 23, 2022 at 6:58 pm

    You look so beautiful

  19. Susan Sims on April 23, 2022 at 7:02 pm

    What can I wear over a eggplant and white maxi floaty dress please?

  20. Golf Girl on April 23, 2022 at 7:02 pm

    You bring simplistic elegance to a whole new level.

  21. Diane Serrianne on April 23, 2022 at 7:06 pm

    Don’t like those brown shoes or purse with that flowered dress. You need some straps shoes, more dainty.

  22. teck1a on April 23, 2022 at 7:07 pm

    Great video, the way you explain each dress on the dress form and then model them is so helpful. Thank you!

  23. Justin Beckford on April 23, 2022 at 7:08 pm

    first time sub, over and going to attend my neice wedding this month

  24. Dana B on April 23, 2022 at 7:09 pm

    I noticed you usually show a print/patterned top. Do you have suggestions for styling print/patterned cardigans and/or jackets?

  25. MMelody M on April 23, 2022 at 7:10 pm

    I like what you have on.

  26. 2021 on April 23, 2022 at 7:10 pm


  27. Louisa Benitah on April 23, 2022 at 7:12 pm

    First dress seems very simple and feminine, the shoes you chose are way to heavy and casual. Be careful when choosing your shoes bc they are just as important as the dress. I would venture to say the same thing about the purse you chose. You should never have more than a clutch for any evening affair, especially a wedding. Finally take the time to show thee full dress, we can only see the top. Sorry.

  28. Rachel Kivarkis on April 23, 2022 at 7:12 pm

    My goodness, all dresses r beautiful, especially the long green dress, that u wore, to ur son’s wedding. A belated congratulation wish.
    Thank u, 🙏❤️🌟👍👏✝️💫

  29. mff2003 on April 23, 2022 at 7:12 pm

    Kay, I’m invited to a black tie affair wedding for October 30 do you have any videos that address is that?

  30. Marietta Warkentin on April 23, 2022 at 7:14 pm

    You are lovely in them all! Congratulations on your son’s wedding! I can’t seem to locate the “description box”?

  31. Pamela Johnson on April 23, 2022 at 7:17 pm

    I loved all the dresses but the floral 👗 floral dress is my favorite

  32. Ruth Brown on April 23, 2022 at 7:17 pm

    Each of those dresses looks stunning on you. 😊

  33. Laura Gem on April 23, 2022 at 7:18 pm

    So grateful for this channel. You are so pleasant to listen to and I really need this information. My lifestyle allows me to wear primarily jeans and tops, but I have an upcoming event where I need dress up. Thanks to your attention to every detail of the outfit with links, the process of finding something I like and is appropriate to the occasion will be MUCH easier. Big thanks.

  34. Gigi McGuane on April 23, 2022 at 7:18 pm

    Wow. Very matronly dresses. You are over 50, not over 150!

  35. Alta Pedroza on April 23, 2022 at 7:19 pm

    You made all those dresses look beautiful.

  36. Exploring Coast To Coast on April 23, 2022 at 7:20 pm

    What timing- just got invited yesterday! Thanks for the info.

  37. GL Gardener on April 23, 2022 at 7:21 pm

    Very nicely done. Beautiful choices. You did a lot of homework to put everything together. Thank you

  38. Kim Truax on April 23, 2022 at 7:21 pm

    Oh, no….I just bought a shrug with scalloped detail to wear to a wedding…..! Will look at the shaws I have and see about a Nulter native…>>…

  39. Victoria Biel on April 23, 2022 at 7:21 pm

    For those of us who are petite (5’3” and under), the Eliza J. dress has a pattern that is too large and busy. You carry it very well because you are tall. But as a petite who is just a little over 100 pounds it would completely swamp me. I always wear subtle florals or classic patterns that are smaller and low contrast. They suit me so much better, and the dresses don’t date as quickly as those with a louder print.

  40. Saras Watkin on April 23, 2022 at 7:22 pm

    Beautiful blue flower print dress but the nude and assesories do not go with it. Light blue would be my choice.

  41. Rosie Jones on April 23, 2022 at 7:22 pm

    I am the mother of a bride to be in Oct. What kind of elegant dress do you recommend to wear at a beautiful ranch outdoors? Please advise. Thx

  42. Evelyn Serrano on April 23, 2022 at 7:22 pm

    I have a wedding coming up in 2 weeks! These dresses are beautiful! Great ideas for accessories! Thanks for sharing! Love the video!

  43. Jo Ann Thompson on April 23, 2022 at 7:22 pm

    I know we’re supposed to be positive & i like the dresses but i think the furry jacket looks so old fashioned. Remember seeing First Lady Bess Truman pics in the ‘40’s in something similar. Sorry, think the shawl/scarf is much better

  44. Terry Silva on April 23, 2022 at 7:24 pm

    All gorgeous on you

  45. D P on April 23, 2022 at 7:24 pm

    What are your thoughts, Kay, on wearing a black dress with a large, floral pattern down one side? It has a narrow, tan belt and a bateau neckline, with a slim silhouette. I love the dress but the main colour is black and I’m not sure if that is appropriate. The wedding I’d wear it to is next May, outdoors under a tent. Could I wear a light coloured shawl or throw with it (matching the coloured flowers) to make this work? I would welcome your advice. I love your videos and fashion advice. I’ve found it very helpful. You are so authentic and honest in your delivery.

  46. Shelly DSouza on April 23, 2022 at 7:26 pm

    My favourite dress was the blue floral one, Yu look great!

  47. Joetta Bartels on April 23, 2022 at 7:27 pm

    My son is getting married in June and have no idea what to wear. Colors are blush pink and pale fern green. Need all the help you can give me.

  48. Debra Naifeh on April 23, 2022 at 7:29 pm

    Thank you for your wedding outfit tips. I have a question-I am 5’4" and have found a tea length dress in a petite size with a "high low" hem. It is different than any other style of dress that I’ve worn before, both in the style and the pattern. My daughter says it is very flattering so I think I’m just going to get brave and wear it. It has a purple ( lilac ) pattern with some black and white in it. What style and color of shoes do you recommend for someone who doesn’t wear high heels and do you think that a tea length dress is a good choice for my height? It is for our daughter’s casual wedding. The dress is called a Lena style and is on the Lane Bryant web site and I bought it in a 14 petite. Thank You!

  49. Ro Spez on April 23, 2022 at 7:30 pm

    Do you have any suggestions for a mother-of-bride dresses for a summer outdoor wedding ?

  50. Sarah Akiyama on April 23, 2022 at 7:32 pm

    Hi, Kay
    I thought of sharing am idea.
    A pretty camisole under the second dress could help with extra coverage
    if required.
    What a beautiful dress.
    Blessings from Tokyo💓🌈
