So, as many of you may or may not know, I have a very special WEDDING coming up next weekend for our friends Joe & Kate. Aren’t they so cute?
On Wednesday, before meeting up for dinner with Gabby, I did a little shopping at the mall. I ended up leaving with 2 dresses which could be possible contenders for the wedding, but I was all by myself and really couldn’t decide. So, what’s a girl to do?
Well, if she has her own blog, she asks her readers for help!
Ok, so I have 3 contending dresses all together – the 2 I just bought, and 1 that I already have, which I actually wore to my own rehearsal dinner. My fabulous hubby did a great job playing “photog” yesterday, so I could share all of the dresses with you. So here we go, let’s take a look…
Dress #1 – Floral Strapless
Pros: I love this dress for the POCKETS! I don’t know what it is, but I totally have a thing for pockets on dresses – not only for the comfort, but also because I think they add such a nice, modern twist to what could be a classic looking dress. The top of this dress also kind of reminded me of the asymmetrical one that J-Lo wore to this year’s Academy Awards (which is weird because I really didn’t like that dress!)
Cons: It’s strapless, which means I may possibly be picking and pulling at it all day/night.
Dress #2 – Nine West
Pros: You can’t go wrong with any combo of black + white + another color. Always classic looking. I really like the V-neckline, which I find flattering, and the length is one that would leave me feeling very comfortable and not self-conscious about showing too much while out on the dance floor. Plus, I could wear these shoes!
I COMPLETELY forgot I even owned these! How could I?!? I found them shoved in the back of my closet just this past weekend. I bought them at Marshalls probably almost 2 years ago – they were $120 shoes by Tahari, which were on the clearance rack for $19.99!!! They’re way too high for an everyday shoe for me, but for special occasions, sure thing!
Cons: I was trying not to wear too much black, just because I wanted to embrace the upcoming summer season with bright, cheery colors. :) Plus, it was also the most expensive dress.
Dress #3 – Banana Republic, already owned
Pros: I already own this dress, so it wouldn’t cost me anything. I love the color, which is nice and bright, and it has a really cool starburst pattern around the waist area. PLUS, I would have an excuse to wear THESE super cute shoes which I’m supposed to be saving for my friend Joelle’s wedding in October, but shhhh!
Cons: The material is a bit heavy, and makes me think a little more of a colder weather dress. The neckline is also a little less exciting to me than the other two dresses. Plus, then I’d have to return BOTH of the dresses I just bought, rather than just one.
SO WHICH ONE SHOULD I CHOOSE?!?!
Help me decide by leaving me a comment on this post with your vote for your favorite & why:
Dress #1, Dress #2, or Dress #3?!?
