Simply Fab: Calypso Satin Convertible Wrap Dress

I've already been a bridesmaid one too many times in my life. Can you sense the lack of enthusiasm in my voice, er words? If my friends had let me wear this Calypso Satin Convertible Wrap Dress ($270), my outlook on bridesmaid fashion would be very different. What I love about it is that it can be worn eight different ways . . . or more, if you're super creative. As if that wasn't Fab enough, it's hand washable. Gorgeous and low-maintenance? Nice.

I had a similar idea for my bridesmaid dresses. I'm having a wedding in Maui on the beach so when I found Calypso I was in fashionable beach-wear heaven. My bridesmaid's are all wearing different dresses but in the same color which is super easy to do at Calypso. Check it my blog for pictures of the dresses- http://megansgettingmarried.blogspot.com/2008/05/calypso-color-collections.html

I have this dress, too, but the older jersey version. Seriously, it is the best fashion investment I have ever made. I've worn it at least 15 different ways (more traditional ways than those pictured here) and it never fails to bring me compliments, even from the salespeople at Barneys in NYC. The photos posted here might not be the most flattering, but trust me, it is a GREAT dress.

i have to say- i saw a girl trying this on in boston to wear for her wedding- in cream- and she looked great- the lady in the store knew how to twist the dress in so many different ways. she had so many great looks to choose from. i have to say it looked better in person than in those pics above- it was really pretty cool!!

I think its a great idea! $250 may be expensive for a bridesmaid dress but I'd rather spend $250 on something I will wear again and again then $150 on something that is too ugly or elaborate to wear again. It's money well spent! And it doesn't look cheap to me! It looks like the material BCBG makes a lot of their dresses out of and they are always so flattering!

I love multipurpose things! I love this dress!! wish I saw it for my wedding. although $250 is a bit steep for something made out of satin. I love all things "calypso"!! my best friends and I are obsessed!!

def not for a BM dress. i looked through the ways to wrap it on their website and the backs are very revealing. better for beach/resort wear.

I'll admit, I kind of like it. And it is worlds better than many of the bridesmaid dresses I've seen.

I don't like it. It looks cheap.

My co-worker tried this on in ivory at a Calypso boutique and at 5' with real-woman curves (not hollywood "curves") she looked absolutely fabulous! The material is not at all cheap as it tends to look in the photos.

I own a dress similar to the blue one on the right except it is not convertible and it is very nice
