Breaking the "bridesmaid" stereotype

Things such as the movie 27 dresses, and the dreary saying, "always a bridesmaid, never a bride", reinforce an already negative mentality of a typical bridesmaid dress. However, with a little creativity, bridesmaid dresses no longer have to be viewed as a sunk cost, never to be worn again and collecting dust in the crevices of your closet. Miss Ruby is determined to reverse this engrained mindset, and we are excited to bring a "Bridesmaid Dress Remix" to our blog! Several times a month we are going to style one of our bridesmaid dresses in order to show that, with the right accessories, our dresses can be worn for any occasion, whether it is a night on the town, a chic work outfit, or simply a weekend shopping trip.
