Remember high school prom? And college frat formals? Or even military formals? Yea, they are pretty distant memories for me as well. I miss the days when I could go shopping for that perfect black tie dress and then spend an entire day getting pretty.
Well, I have one of those days coming!! YEA! I was invited to a foundation dinner hosted by one of the industry associations. And its black tie.
After a trip to my closet last night, I realize that the only "black tie/formal" dresses I own are 1) an adorable black dress that I wore to L's wedding and 2) the horrendous Pepto-pink bridesmaid dress from my sister's wedding. Yes, it really was that pink!!!
And so, with a friends help yesterday, we have found a few dresses I just might need to purchase for my night on the town. But since I am a girl and cannot make a decision like this on my own (man, I miss those girl trips to the mall every April in preperation for prom!), let me know which one you like best.
My criteria is: no thin spaghetti straps (the girls just dont like them!), if the dress is black then it needs to be different, and I am not spending any more than $150 but if I can keep it even lower than that, great!
And then there is always the dress I already own from L's wedding:
