Jeff and I are going to a fancy pants black tie wedded affair in LA in a few weeks and I feel like I need to get fancy. I know black tie these days doesn't necessarily equate to a sequin gown, but really, how many opportunities do I get to wear a sequin gown? I kind of feel like I need to carpe diem, and wear a designer gown to this wedding. Especially since I just found out about Rent The Runway where I can borrow a $1000 designer gown for $75 for four days. I'd spend at least twice that on a dress for this wedding, and I'd probably wear it only a few times. So I just browsed through and clicked on a few favorites. I want you to tell me which one is your favorite, or rank them in order of favoritist to least favorite.
It's fortunate that the RTR dress model looks exactly like me, so you'll have an easy time imagining me in these dresses. And for all you snarkies out there, I realize I may be an inch or two shorter than this model, but most of these dresses come in 2-4 different lengths to accommodate my lack of supermodel height. Please also keep in mind that Jeff will be wearing his gray suit, the one he wore to our wedding, so I have to look good with him, which sadly probably means #1 Gold n' Sparkly is out of the running. I wish there was a RTR for men so I could get Jeff a black Prada suit...
All but one of these are Badgley Mischka's because apparently I LOVE their dresses. So I'll give them a quick name for ease of reference:
1. Gold n' Sparkly:
3. Nicole Miller Black n' Lacy:

4. I Love Silver Sequins:
5. Mesh Shoulders and a Thigh Slit:
Shot of the demure back because I know you were all thinking there was a back cut-out. Kind of wish there was.
6. Ambiguously-Colored Sequins:
7. Can I pull off a Lipstick Red dress? Kind of don't think so.
So many fancies! I also own two other dresses that may work out for this wedding. One I will be attempting to dye navy blue this week with the help of Mandy. We'll see how that goes before I place a RTR order. Of course, if I'm going to be wearing a dress I already own, the money I would have spent on the dress will go to a new pair of heels. Duh.
