I don’t know if there will be much posting this week. I am gearing up for my move on Wednesday (or Thursday) so I won’t have a lot of writing time. But I do need some help from you my brilliant readers!
I got this really awesome dress on crazy sale at Lane Bryant last month. I haven’t had a chance to wear it yet, but I am going to a wedding on Saturday, and it is perfect for the occasion. The wedding is for this couple I met through my friend’s volleyball league, and they are both just so fun and lively…… which calls for a fun and lively dress. See dress below:
It’s from Lane Bryant, but it’s not on the site anymore
The sleeves are light and airy and the dress is so floaty and fun. I love the insane colors and the comfy shape. However, I felt that a dress the fun deserves something other than black pumps. So you know what that means??? Shoe shopping!!
I headed over to see my shoe guy at Nordstrom. Drew is a little weird (remind me to show you the thank you card he sent me once) but he is hella fun and knows me and my style. I let him pick what shoes he wanted me to try and he did an awesome job. I narrowed it down to two and I absolutely cannot decided which ones to wear! Here are my choices, along with their pros and cons.
Ivanka Trump Indico Pump in Ocean Blue – Nordstrom
Pros: Kitten heel means tons of dancing in comfort; seriously, that blue patent leather is gorgeous; I feel like this color/style can be really versatile.
Cons: Kitten heel means less height; the toe is pointy-er than I am used to; this was the more expensive of the two pairs; it doesn’t match the dress. It goes with it okay, but it doesn’t match.
Jessica Simpson Abriana Pump in Grapefruit – Nordstrom
Pros: Awesome heelto have fabulous looking legs; the color matches perfectly with my dress; the has a lot of padding inside in addition to a hidden platform for more stability and comfort; it is the less expensive of the two pairs.
Cons: It is a 4.75″ heel. The platform takes an inch off, but that height means less comfort for long periods of time; I don’t know how versatile it will be in with the rest of my wardrobe (expect my plethora of LDBs); the rounded toe bed might make my toes claustrophobic.
So take a second to vote in the poll below. Should I choose choice #1 or choice #2? You can vote through Friday, and I will trust y’all – whatever you pick is what I will wear to the wedding.
But let’s make this even more interesting shall we?? I will pick a voter at random and give them a three month subscription to my newest obsession Birchbox. That’s three free months of awesome beauty samples in adorable boxes. Trust me, it’s the greatest thing that will happen to your beauty cabinet and your mailbox all month! I’ll announce the winner next Tuesday on Facebook, so be sure to follow me there. I’ll even throw it up on Twitter as well, so check there also.
So vote now!! NOTE: If you get a box that says “you already voted for this” it should still let you vote. I’m not sure why that box is there…..
