So in the last five entries I sort of struggled to put five looks together with the Kelly bag–you can see a recap in black/white at the ODJ link elsewhere on my blog. Anyway, I abhor whining and I did a little bit of that in the last post, so I thought I’d redeem myself today with something more fun by getting your feedback!
At the end of this month my parents will be celebrating their golden anniversary so we’re throwing them a party. Besides all the (real) important decisions, there is the burning question of what to wear! I’ve narrowed my choices down to four Chanel dresses, all because I can wear them with the one pair of heels that I want to pack (lightly) for this trip. It’s been two decades since I lost the ability to control my weight swing due to a few medical issues, so I always need to have a backup plan. I never know if I’ll have a thin or thick day, even if I eat the same thing every day. But TMI!
Anyway, my choices for you are quite simple: two in light colors and two in black. For each color there are a fitted and a relaxed silhouette. What’s your vote?
Option 1: Paris-Londres dress (runway photos below all courtesy of Style.com). This dress is so amazing in person and there is no way for photographs to do it any justice. The fabric is beyond cool. But I need to remove a couple of ribs to be able to exhale.
Option 2: 12A dress, a very safe if boring choice with nice “exit” feature in the back. But I could actually keep all my ribs to wear this dress.
Option 3: 12P dress. Again, a tight squeeze. I think I need some kind of belt to accent this dress though?
Option 4: Paris Bombay dress. Inhale, exhale, it doesn’t matter in this forgiving dress. I had alterations done to it already, but compared to the runway photo, it could still be better fitted to give me a waistline? But then it wouldn’t be a comfy dress then…
If you have ideas for how to accessorize the option you choose, I’d love to hear it as well :D!
