First dress, bought in 1999. Found to be off grain with twisting of the fabric over the lining - very annoying. And absolutely nothing interesting about the front.
Marginally interesting back. This is what I look like if you're sitting at the table.
Oh, I actually look skinny in one! Again, nothing interesting about the front other than some dark beads around my neck - feels like a dog collar. Also bought in 1999.
Va-va-voom! I can just approach everyone backwards. Unfortunately, I'll have to have some serious Spanxage for the side shot. (Oh, you really shouldn't drink when you're pregnant - can I get you an O'Doul's??)
My favorite-est pink puffy dress, bought in 2001. This is the one that I stepped on and yanked the shoulder strap from the dress, which I didn't realize until the breeze hit my chest and I saw beads pouring on the floor. That happened TWICE.
It's just so princessy, I should donate it to somebody younger. I think I'm too old for it now....and I never fixed that strap.
This is the one I liked best tonight, but my goodness at my gut! Bought around 2008.
Nothing terribly interesting about it other than the beading. I think it makes me look heavy...or solid.
Oh jeez, I can't believe I wore this. The worst one of the bunch, possibly. This is the one I made in 2010. Peter from New York actually commented on my review at PR and said "that is one fantastic dress."
God bless him for being nice to a new reviewer! He even gave me a zipper tip.
And the one I made last year.
Maybe I could redo the back straps to look more interesting somehow...nah, I only have 2 weeks.
So....which one will it be? In person I decided I would wear the dark gray beaded one, but in pictures I think the black one looks nice - maybe because I was standing farther from the camera!
And I DID wear my new skinny jeans to dinner last night...with a belt since the WAISTBAND stretched OUT! Arrrgh! I'm washing and drying them tonight to see if they'll shrink a bit, and if not, I may have to do put some darts in. Whatever, I'm not a tucker.
