I apologise in advance for hi-jacking a bridal forum, but I need advice on dresses, and I figured you girls would be the people in the know!
I live in Australia, and am departing on a cruise from LA early next year. The cruise line gets very formal after 6pm most nights where you have to dress up either in formal wear or cocktail dress.
My plan is to step off the plane and hit up the stores to go dress shopping. I've looked online for the best places to go for evening & cocktail gowns, but I can't seem to find a definitive location I can go and find what I need.
So my question is, can anyone recommend a good all-in-one store where I can find a good selection of bridesmaid, evening and/or cocktail dresses where I can walk in, pick dresses off the rack, and walk out with a half dozen or so dresses under my arm and not have to worry about hunting all over town.
I'm staying in Santa Monica but have a car so can travel. Is somewhere like David's Bridal the sort of place I can find a decent range of available dresses?
Thanks in advance, ladies!
