As I sat down to plan outfits for the weekend, I pulled out the triple card stock invitations to review: Rehearsal Friday night (cocktail attire), ceremony on Saturday afternoon (semi-formal!), and a reception later that night (black tie!!). With loads of new arrivals on Rent the Runway, I felt like a kid at the candy store.
Friday night seemed like the perfect opportunity to try a Preen dress I had been eyeing. Definitely go a size up with this designer! It was a warm night for October in NY, so no tights and a pair of high heels and I was on my way! It was super fun to wear a bright color in a room full of black dresses. Jessica Rabbit was on the right track… red + ruching = hot!
Tibi’s High Tea Dress was perfectly appropriate and adorable for the ceremony. I paired it with some micro-fishnet stockings and Tory Burch suede flats for a girlish flair. Loads of compliments from the highschool pals I ran into after the ceremony… yipppeee!
A few hours later, I was ready to put on my third outfit for the weekend, Temperly London’s stunning Queen of the Nile dress. Amazing beading, wonderful draping, dainty low back, and easy to dance in… love love love this dress. Who says you have to go long for black-tie?
After a wonderful weekend of wardrobe changes, there's only one question - which dress was best? Check out my pics and tell me which dress you like the most – I can’t decide! -- Chondita
