This Saturday, I’m attending a gala. The theme is “Red Carpet Affair,” and the dress is to be ‘old Hollywood glamour’. I have two outfit ideas in mind. And I simply can’t decide which to choose.
First, of course, my sequin shorts.
Because really I’ll use any excuse to pull out the sequin shorts.
Look one: sequin shorts, white button-up, black tights, silver heels, grey bowtie.
There could be some variations on the sequin short option. For example, I have black suede wedges and silver tights that could be switched in for the black tights and silver shoes. I also MAY have access to a black bowtie, but it is still MIA at the moment. If I manage to get my paws on it before Saturday, it would probably be my preference over the grey bowtie. So it’s a regular mix-and-match – all centered around the sequin shorts.
PROS – unique and fun. I’m pretty much guaranteed to be the only gal at the gala in sequin shorts – I like that I’d stand out from the typical ball gowns.
And speaking of ball gowns….
Look two: blue mermaid style gown and TBD shoes. Maybe the grey heels pictured above, but preferably, my sequin flats. (Note: if I go this route, I will steam the bottom of the dress, so don’t concern yourself with the wrinkles.)
PROS – safe and classy. This is probably what the event planners had in mind for attire, and I know it would be a safe look. Plus I like the dress.
So…what should I wear?? Unique…or safe? Which direction would you take the look?
