What We Wore-Interactive Edition

Today’s “What I’m Wearing” post is a little bit different.  I need your help!  I have an upcoming work party for Tab that is “cocktail dress”.  I’ve been searching for the perfect dress and thought I should ask my blog friends!!  So, PLEASE help me!!  I must tell you that I want to look my age and look cute, but I don’t want to super stand out.  Does that make sense?  πŸ™‚  Check out these dresses and vote for your Top Two?  My plan is to order a couple and choose the one that fits best.  

Dress #1
This black cut out dress is fun!  Not sure about the long sleeves?

Dress #2
I think this black lace dress is so cute.  Thoughts??

Dress #3

Dress #4
This red lace is pretty.  Maybe I’m in the Valentine’s Day mindset?  

Dress #5
Apparently I have a thing for dark colors and lace!  hahaha!  This long sleeve lace has a fun back.  I couldn’t copy the picture, but you can click on the link to see the back.

Dress #6
This fit and flare dress also has a fun back.  It might be a little short?  After yesterday’s post you guys might be calling me Kim or Rihanna in this one?  πŸ™‚

Dress #7
What are your thoughts on a sparkly black dress?

Dress #8
I’m afraid this one would scream, “Look at me!”, but I do think it’s really pretty.

I definitely have my favorite, so I’m dying to see what you guys choose.  Please help me out and vote for your favorite!   Thanks SO much, ladies!!  Happy Wednesday!

    I just ordered #2 and #3 last week, and ended up wearing #3 to a Mardi Gras cocktail party last week. I loved them both, and was really impressed with the quality of both dresses. Sometimes lace can look cheap, and these are very nice, well made, and comfortable to wear. #2 is a bit more form fitted, which would work well on your figure, but #3 was more flattering on me.

    #1 the cutout cheapens this dress
    #2 seems slightly skimpy
    #3 pretty dress. can't go wrong with this one.
    #4 Adorable! Especially on you. You would stand out in a good way πŸ™‚
    #5 Totally CLASSY! And you would look gorgeous in navy with your beautiful blonde hair!
    #6 very cute but too low-cut and a tad too short
    #7 seems New Years Eve to me
    #8 Fun! You could pull it off and be gorgeous!
    Well, who knew I was going to write a full review? Lol!
    Go with the red – you're only young once!!

    Hands down #2, then #3 then 6. I know that's three but it was hard not to include a non lace option. Good luck!

    I love numbers 1,3, and 5. Love the cutouts in number one; unique, but not too different. Love numbers 3 and 5 bc of the lace and color. Navy goes with so much. Love the nude behind the navy in 3. You could wear nude heals with it then and a fun piece of jewelry.

    My top three in no certain order…3, 5 and 8. The black ones seem too 'safe' the red one is very pretty, but I would feel like I was standing out in red. The blue would look great on you with your complexion and eyes. #8 is a fun dress and again I think it would great on you! Heck, you could wear a paper bag and look great!!

    I like them all, but dress #5 is the most appropriate for this type function. Being a former Executive Assistant working with executives for nearly 30 years for a large utility company, I have organized and attended many functions. However, I am much older than you, but still love your style, and love your blog. You always want to make your husband look good to his peers as well as his superiors. Just my personal opinion. I have been in this situation many times, and then heard the various comments and conversation after the function. Hahahaha! Hope you have a great time! You will definitely be beautiful in whichever dress you choose!

    3 or 5 ! BUT you could totally pull off 8 if you think it could pass as appropriate for the event!
    Maybe their will be other "flashy wives" there ?:) if so, you wouldn't be out of place. But, what you are "working with" already is so amazing, like, you are naturally so beautiful that "gets noticed", too much clothing/accessory embellishment on top of that can be overkill. this is despite the fact that you would look amazing in it, just something to consider for a work party if you don't want to be noticed.
    I think this is an important element of style- knowing objectively what you are working with. And, Im saying you are really beautiful! πŸ™‚ have fun!

    I literally have 5 or 6 different fit & flair dresses bc they are really flattering! I think they can be casual or dressed up! But of your choices (other than the fit & flair) I really love #3, the navy & nude boat neck, bc it's very classic & pretty! Also, boat neck is prob my fav neck line. It's pretty, but also conservative & you'll be comfortable in it all night. My wedding dress was bc I really wanted to be comfortable & I'm conservative when it comes to showing too much chest off & I didn't want to tugging at & pulling up a dress all night. I didn't at all & it was perfect! also #2, the black lace is pretty & timeless as well! Can't wait to see what you choose!
