First, I really do love buying a new dress for a special occasion. I can pretty much tell you what dress/outfit I have worn to every wedding I've attended, and whose had my favorite look at an event. It's just sort of how I categorize life.
Second, because of this blog, I have a distorted view of what is "new" and "old." I also feel like everyone has already seen my outfits and I should therefore have something new. This is of course absurd on so many levels.
Most important, and not to contradict - a new dress makes me quite happy. And there is nothing nothing nothing wrong with that. I firmly stand behind Cinderella for more than just a happily ever after. There is something transforming and deeply powerful in the perfect dress, and shoes. I just happen to have many "perfect" dresses in my closet, for now.
OK! the point...
We have our annual elementary school auction tomorrow.
THIS is the dress I want. Well that's sort of helpful for me getting over it. Not really, especially because i just saw it's on sale. Isn't it amazing?? soft and flowy and that back detail.
Below are the 3 looks I own and am considering, I thought it would be fun to ask you all to vote on your favorite, to help me get over myself.
Things to consider:
1. The evening is cocktail attire.
2. Sodo Seattle location, urban industrial area south of downtown.
3. It's still cold and probably will be raining.
Which is your favorite 1, 2, or 3? Leave a comment below and tell me which I should wear.
Please and Thank you.
Thanks for reading and letting me share my inner thought process.
