Alright Tumblr, since I obviously can’t make any decisions of my own (#libraproblems) I need your help again with this dress situation.
I went to Macy’s yesterday and tried on about a million dresses, texting pictures to my mom after each dress. I narrowed it down to a few favorites, but I’m still having trouble choosing.
This gold sparkly one was cute, but I wasn’t convinced it was the most flattering to my figure.
This red print was cute, but probably the most casual of the dresses. Maybe a bit too casual for a wedding?
I felt really pretty in this floral satin, but… do guys “get” floor-length floral print dresses? Also, do I look like I stepped out of 1994?
This gorgeous hydrangea colored dress was my absolute favorite, but I have a feeling it’s much too formal for this small, upstate NY wedding. Thoughts? (Editor’s Note: Ignore the fact that one boob looks higher than the other. In my haste to take the picture, I didn’t adjust the straps properly.)
I had pretty much decided on this silk striped one, but felt that it was just a tad too tight and clinging around the hips/butt. They only had one two sizes up, which was much too big, so I called French Connection and they had the last one in my size at the store. I went all the way down to the Soho store, only to find that it was in the wrong color! The red and maroon stripe just wasn’t as pretty. I could still get the larger size and have it taken in, or go with the slightly tighter one. Even the size that was a little bit too small would need the straps shortened, anyway. The other con? This was far and away the most expensive of the dresses.
I may end up doing some more searching today at the boutiques around Soho. What do you think? Should I go back for one of these?
Is this entire post as obnoxious as I think it is?
