What Are You Wearing Today?

Recommended Posts

I could use some fashion advice please. I went shopping this weekend for a country club wedding March 3rd in Texas. 

Does this dress work? Groom first told me it was somewhat formal, then revised to cocktail attire. Nothing was noted on the invitation and the wedding is at 4. Another friend mentioned I could dress it up with jewelry, is it too casual?

This dress is a 16. I pulled multiple 22's before my friend convinced me to leave the plus size section...I wore a size 13 in 6th grade. And it has pockets! The shoes are navy.

I would think this outfit would work well. I would be dressing it up with appropriate jewellery though. Shouldn't take much to lift it up a level of formality. Good choice in my opinion as it will also serve casual very nicely.

You look great, @xmandy!  I love that top!  :) 

(I'm wearing a fairly thick layer of cat & dog hair over an old purple t-shirt with a pair of fleece pants that are five inches or so too long for my legs and only intermittently rolled up, and no makeup.  So I will NOT be sharing any fashion photos today!!!)

I missed this when it was posted! It's a beautiful dress. I think the dark bright jewel tones of the flowers make it cheerful for an afternoon wedding but still relatively formal, and the black can be either dressed up or down in terms of formality. Since the date is this weekend, you may not have time for shopping, but if you do or if you have something in your jewelry box already, a big, bold statement necklace (silver or gold, or something that pulls out one color in the skirt) plus bold earrings or bracelet (but probably not both) would pull it together very nicely :)

@xmandy You look great, and congrats on Onederland :) 

I think the color of the pants works very nicely with the blouse. Fluttery, ruffly blouses are the thing right now. I seem to be seeing them everywhere - it's a nice feminine style.

Omg @Kio...you are SO my fashion twin!!! :D Mine is usually the cat hair, the too big clothes and no makeup, but the addition of baby snot or slimy Cheerios on my shirt makes the outfit complete!! HAHAHA

Remember the Alamo!!!

You look beautiful, and I hope you had a lovely time. The necklace and earrings make the outfit nice and polished. And the lipstick works with the skirt colors :) 

I wish I had nice thick hair like yours...

Ditto. So much envy.

You look so lovely @KMFL28! The shape of that dress is really flattering on you. (I hate the word 'flattering' but can't come up with anything better. Main point: you look amazing. :) )

@Kio @Nana Trish Do either of you remember that show, “What Not To Wear”?  I would be a strong candidate rn. Messy hair, sports bra that send my breasts in different directions, too big pants and I suspect a bit of cat or Toddler poo. It’s always cat or toddler poo in my house, which is why everyone who sees me says...giphy.gif

Joke’s on them, because I don’t eat in restaurants anymore. :P

Hahahahaha @NerdyToothpick!!! :lol: You're so funny! 

I think I remember that show...not clearly though. I think most of the "everyday us's" would be strong candidates for the show though, lol...especially having to chase toddlers around :)

Thanks for the hair compliments! It took it's sweet time growing back in after surgery. I rarely curl it (might have a slight burn on my forehead from this attempt) but it was fun to get sassed up with big Texas sized hair!

So, not TODAY, but Monday, when I went to a meeting in New Hampshire.  I was super stressed out by Leah being sick and whiny all weekend, so instead of stress-eating per my old-usual, I went out and splurged on a new dress!  (Also - bonus cat!)
