i mentioned yesterday that i am going to my reunion this weekend. oddly enough, i didn't obsess too much about what i am going to wear. maybe it's because i am still fairly close with a lot of the people i went to high school with, and i see them on a semi-regular basis. maybe it's because in the age of facebook, we see everyone every day...so there will really be no shocking surprises on the day of the reunion. (shoot.)
i did however, realize that a reunion is as good of an excuse as ever to buy a new dress, so i did just that – a little black number that i figured i could accessorize the hell out of. so i've got the dress, and here's where you come in. help me decide on what accessories i should wear. i can't guarantee that i will wear exactly what you tell me. chris is always complaining that i ask for his opinion and then end up wearing whatever i want anyways. but isn't that a woman's prerogative?
so, here is the dress (it's hard to get detailed pictures of a black dress, but i promise i will take photos of me in it at some point).
ok. that's the dress. and i picked two shoe/belt combos...but feel free to mix and match.
(if you like this shoe, then turn to page 187 to see the belt.) (see how i tied in the title of the post there?)
option 1...fun and colorful and shiny. i like all of those things. i sometimes feel like a bit of a prostitute in those shoes – not because i sell myself for money, but because i once had a coworker say i looked like a prostitute in those shoes. nice, right? but i do love them, and i love that belt....so that's what really matters.
option 2...fun and colorful without being as shiny. then there's the pattern mixing and the fact that i love my leopard belt. but i also spent a half hour soaking and lotioning and painting my toes last night...that would all go to waste in close-toed shoes.
and then for jewelry. i'm thinking earrings and bracelets for sure, but i'm not so sure about a ring. so again, help me out!!
|sparkly hoops, beaded hoops or cheshire cat grin/hanging fruit bowl earrings?|
|choose one, choose all...i have never been one to shy away from too many bracelets!|
|i've got big, colorful, shiny, bigger, shinier, or plain. or nothing. you decide.|
so what do you think? (please don't tell me to wear another dress.) but do tell me what shoes, belt, earrings, bracelet(s), and ring (or not) to wear. i sure would appreciate your feedback!!
i then promise to have a drink in your honor while i am celebrating being old with a bunch of old friends!
