God, I never thought I would do this on my blog.
But whatever. I don’t have many lady friends here, so….
Do we like Dress A…
…or Dress B?
B actually has these odd cut out sleeves…I tried to get a picture but the flash attacked me:
(B would also need a different belt.)
Neither of these is actually the dress I had in mind when I stopped by the store today. That dress (which was a hot one-shoulder number that made my waist look the size of a freaking pixy stick) was apparently sold out. Bummer, but my fault…I should have bought it when I first saw it. It’s a small local boutique and it’s not like they can just order more from the Old Banana Gap warehouse.
Anyway, the sales girl talked me in to trying on both of these. I never, ever would have picked them out on my own, just seeing them on the hanger. I’ve never done the whole belted-shift-tunic thing. (Because why buy a freaking pillowcase and put an belt around it when you can just buy a dress that already has a waist? I like waists. Waists are flattering. Pillowcase dresses, or tit curtains as the inimitable Maddox called them, are not.)
But I tried them. And I kind of liked them. And I couldn’t even decide which one I liked better and they were fairly inexpensive so I bought both.
So, what say you, readers? Which dress should curtain my tits at this wedding next month? A, B, or neither? You can be honest, I’ve got my big girl panties on and I can take it!
(If it matters, and I’m sure it probably does, it’s a beach wedding. It’ll be held as an upscale resort but in my mind that still means a little more casual than the average outdoor wedding. The hubs is an usher and he’s been instructed to wear khaki-colored dress pants and a blazer, but no tie, if that helps.)
And then also: what shoes do I wear with these? When I was whining about shoes earlier this week many of you suggested wedges, which I think would work here? Or maybe cute sandal-flats of some sort? But I’m only 5’3″ and I don’t want to be too stumpy?
Today’s EAT: Continuing my no-cooking streak, I ordered pizza for dinner tonight.
And not even good pizza. Chain pizza. From a place that rhymes with Pete’s a Slut. Because that’s all that delivers here. I miss NYC.
Today’s DRINK: We have a little beer swap thingy going at work, and one of my co-workers passed this on to me:
I’ve been sipping this Founder’s Centennial IPA for an hour and a half now. I’m digging it! The flavor is bold and heavy on the citrus and pine, but totally drinkable if you like IPAs. Which I definitely do! 7.2% ABV.
Today’s RUN: No speed-work, but I did get some decent mileage in. I ran a little on my own then headed over to the store to meet some people and logged a few more miles before running back home. Total: 8.5 miles.
Today’s QUESTION: ZOMG WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
