Pieces that work in our wardrobe for a million different occasions are like a gift from the heavens, and Brooklyn designer Shabd Simon-Alexander might just be our savior. Her earth-and-element-inspired fall '11 collection is breezy and elegant with dresses that would be ideal for a not-too-formal bridesmaid.
For example, the Shabd Arctic Tea Dress makes a lady look like a tall glass of water (literally!) with its cool blue tie-dye and sheath cut. And the collection's Shoreline Dress not only pulls double-duty as both a casual day dress and an alternative option for the low-key bride, put it can also be worn so many different ways that it makes our heads spin. To our delight, the designer can customize the frocks in any freakin' color (something picky Bridezilla can appreciate), and they're all priced from $88-$580. Check out the rest of her organically gorgeous, 16-piece collection that is both beautiful and functional, like any good piece of clothing should be.
