What to wear!

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:

In order of MY preference - aqua, brown, black and white. Mostly because those are the most different from your current wardrobe :P

Oooh. They're all gorgeous. I think I like the aqua one, too. It looks more versatile (dress up or dress down). And you'll also stand out a little more because most people wear black! I like the black and white one, too, though. Good luck!

Umm, I'm not going to be much help. I love them all! Although I am secretly in love with the strapless one. Probably because I would kill to look good in that thing.

So, actually, I guess that's my vote then :)

L, me too. I LOVE the brown one but am a little concerned that "the girls" wont like it. However the sash in the middle would take some attention off the girls. Maybe its a buy and try item. If I dont like it, I can return it!

Ok. I'm loving the black and white one-- because I'm all about black and white- simple and classy.

Love the brown one, but boobs will be an issue, and therefore am casting my vote for the black and white one. I think it's just different enough!
