E. McKay Sale and Need Clothes for Events

Last week the Lilly sale got me, this week the Elizabeth McKay sale did.  But both times, the items were steals and very justifiable.
 
I basically haven't shopped in 1.5 years since we got engaged.  I was overdue to get a couple things for our wedding events coming up.
 
Y'all will be seeing me in this soon!  Elizabeth McKay is 50% off sitewide and free shipping now until January 13th with the code CHEER at checkout.
 
Until then, I'll be on the hunt for something to wear to these events over the next three months:
 
Three bridal showers (two of mine), a dessert/champagne party for us, three nights in Charleston for a trip Kevin won (fancy outfits), my bridesmaids luncheon (Lilly! - I've been saving Belk gift cards for this for a year!), the morning after our wedding to say bye to everyone and honeymoon clothes (will mostly shop my closet). 
 
But the hardest part for me - the month of February.  I am not good at winter dressy events.  I just never know what to wear.  March/April - I'm good - Lilly!  But any ideas on winter things?  I think the dress above may be good for the dessert/champagne party.  We'll see.  Help!

I love that dress! I struggle with knowing what to wear always, so at least you have a few months taken care of. :)

That green will look so good on you! We must get together when you come to Charleston for a drink! Will you be bringing Millsy?!?

I love that dress! For winter, I think an Elizabeth McKay dress with opaque black tights and a fab pair of heels would work! Loving the green dress!

Wintery items are always tough. That green dress is amazing and would fabulous on you with your coloring. I have good luck at BCBG and J. Crew with wintery-type dresses.

Living in PA we have a long winter, and I am just now finding my "winter style." E McKay dresses are always a go-to. And I always look for long or three quarter sleeved dresses, something I never bought before living here. Also, black tights are my best friend this time of year.

That green dress would look so great with your coloring! I hate dressing for formal winter events, too!

I always love rent the runway! That is usually what I do when I need a winter dress (or even spring/summer, they have Lilly!)....I have had good luck with all the dresses I have rented so far!

I wear a lot of long sleeved dresses with black tights and fun jewels and/or a belt for winter events, but I'm not sure if that is "fun" enough for a shower/champagne party. Maybe try a long sleeved dress in silk or another fun fabric?
