you pick what i wear

April 17, 2010 at 10:31 am 12 comments

Hello there, everyone! As you know, I went to a bridal shower for my friend Elizabeth last weekend, and tonight is the bachelorette party – drinks & food at a comedy club, some karaoke, some bar-hopping. I’m excited! But of course the question now is… what should I wear?

I thought of a few options (click for larger):

a) gold sequin, swirl top & skinny jeans (similar to – or exactly – this look)
b) silver sequin zebra print tank & skinny jeans
c) flowy, mod-ish tan and gold deep-V top & skinnies
d) flowy, black deep-V top & skinnies
e) black ruffle dress with yellow tights & boots (as seen here and here)
f) black deep-V, flutter-sleeve dress with medallion accents, purple tights and boots (as seen here)

Or something else? Feel free to leave other options or modifications/suggestions in the comments. I’m curious what you will choose!

      Ugh, my stupid blister is still healing, so I’m not sure about shoes yet – but if I can muster it, I will def rock cute heels!

    I voted for the last option, however, if everyone else is semi-casual then the first look could work as well. Either way, I’d pick something with at least semi-comfortable foot wear if you’re going to be bar-hopping.

      Yeah, that’s what I’m not sure of – what others will be wearing. I do think the comedy club & karaoke parts do lean more toward casual than dressy a bit. I need to find out what the bride is wearing!

    i couldnt decide between the ruffle dress or silver sequin outfit. but i went with the silver juuust bc its sparkly and therefor, a little more fun.

      Yes! Exactly why I included so many sequins – they are just a bit more ~fun. :)

      thanks, VB! So far the ruffle dress is winning… but the tide could turn!

    B – Zebra (Duh, it’s me), and skinny jeans. If you’re bar hopping it’s nice to be somewhat casual. And you don’t have to worry too much about fixing your dress constantly (that’s my preference, at least)
