Style Dilemma: 20th Reunion Advance Work

20th Reunion Advance Work

20th Reunion Advance Work by dcceline

T-minus 13 days til the reunion.

Law & Order on TV. Fingers flying on the keyboard. Scrolling through rows and rows of Zappos.com options. Because of their amazing (still the best in the business) 365 return policy. Hopefully, I'll be able to try them on with my black patent and natural straw version of these Oscar de la Renta sandals (with a sexy red insole) this weekend.

We've got Calvin, always a winner. Draping + red should be flattering and showstopping. The main thing that concerns me? Bra. I think - but am not sure - I have a convertible bra in my drawer somewhere. Braless is not an option.

Then Jessica Simpson. Seriously. This blousy top with fitted skirt might strike the perfect blend of relaxed and still sexy. I'll even forgive the black for the cool, interesting slitted sleeves.

Last up? Juicy Couture. Again, surprised me when I clicked. I do well in the sexy structure of a 60s-style shift minidress. I've got legs, know how to use them, but the 3/4 sleeves and covered up demure lace might balance the ├╝ber-sexy ankle straps on my beloved Oscars. Granted, they might not work, but then again, they might.

The first re dress is great! Love the one shoulder. I also have a blog about dining out in DC with a little bit of fashion. Check it out! trendycheapo.blogspot.com

I vote for the Jessica Simpson piece. Yes, I know it's black, but it speaks volumes without saying a word. Successful. Dragon slayer. Grecian goddess. Head turner.

Thanks, TayKat! I'm a sucker for 1sbucks shoulder, too.

And Serena, I love the way you think. I *am* a dragon slayer (really need to post my Halloween O-ren ishii pics)

Loving the silhouette of that black one, though the red one is really hot too. the white one is utterly adorable, but doesn't scream "see how well the past 20 year have treated me?" as much :)

Allie, you hit the nail on the head with the whole point of the dress. There just might be a little bit of "yes, it's me. remember me? don't you wish you did?" in there. Just maybe. ;-)
