I have a biz casual event to go to on wed. Hubby is wearing long sleeve linen guyabera w/ french cuffs. Black trousers - I think linen as well.

My choices:
J Peterman Polka dot flouncy dress
WDR3196-BLACK.jpg

J Peterman black tie shoulder dress with removable bling
WDR3298-BLACK.jpg

J Peterman Agua Caliente dress (Hubby really likes this one - and it's on sale)
2871-BLACK-2.jpg

Chelsea & Theodore broomstick dress in black
03445314_zi_black?$product$

I'm open to other suggestions along the feminine, friendly to zaftigness line in a natural material (cotton, silk, linen etc.)

    I like the first and second.

    Third is a little costumy and the fourth is REALLY casual.

    I can't choose between the first two.

    Hubby's choice is out. I didn't realize it was velvet on the bottom. No way am I wearing velvet in Texas in June. Don't want to look like an upholstered couch.

    I like #1 best. After that, # 2 but #1 is much more interesting and flirty.
    2/c Coarse hair med. density.
    Highly porous. Color over grey.
    I love all the Curl Junkie products. Still experimenting with gels and curl creams. Still hoping for 2nd day hair....

    I like one and four. A lot.

    Fun Fact: When you actively avoid being “PC,” you’re not being forward-thinking or unique. You’re buying into systems of oppression that have existed since before you were even born, and you’re keeping those systems in place."

    #1 seems the most biz casual. I like #2 but it looks a little dressy.
    When are women going to face the fact that they don’t know their own bodies as well as men who have heard things?

    Ever since the sports thread wars I have sensed a special connection between [edit] & Wile. Like the connection oil has to water. I almost can't speak of it. Wait....my eyes are misting. ~asq

    I like one and four the best, with four possibly coming out on top.

    #1 is beautiful!
  • webjockeywebjockey Posts: 2,786Registered Users
    I love #1 the best but I'm starting to have second thoughts. I'm about a size 16/18 in the hip area and I'm not a very tall woman (5"4 after an inversion table session) Can I really pull off polka dots?

    Sigh....

    I think I'm going to get the last one and accessorize I'm hearing through the grapevine that some folks are going to show up in costumes. The theme is... wait for it... Texas.

    Sigh....

    LOL, what is a Texas theme? I like the second one a lot and the third one, but if it wasn't velvet, ew. First one is cute and might be better if it's a costume type thing.

    Can you try on the dress at all? The dots are so small and they're all over - I'm super short and on the curvy side, and I think the style would be flattering on me, so I would think on your hourglass figure, it would be great too.

    Texas style? Does that mean you wear cowboy hats? I'm from CT, so I have NO IDEA what that means!

    I like the 2nd one the best. the 3rd one whould be nice if if wasnt velveet. i thought it was silk or satin.

    Texas as a theme??? people coming in costumes?? What kind of party is this??

    So I popped into anthropolgie and picked this up:

    21101357_011_b?$redesign-openLarger$

    20298964_010_b?$redesign-openLarger$
    The skirt is much more form-hugging than the picture shows.
    It works more like a pencil-cut skirt on my body and the back is slightly longer than the front.

    19119239_020_b?$redesign-openLarger$

    I plan on wearing the belt backwards and above my midsection.

    I anticipate lots of cowboy hats and such. Remember, where I live, cowboy boots can be seen as professional/dress up clothing.

    Yes, and starched jeans are perfectly appropriate for a wedding.
    :lol:
    Will there be a few longhorns, as well?
    How about the convertible caddy w/ the long horns as an ornament? :laughing4:

    hubby loved the outfit I bought :toothy8:

    I'm definitely keeping my eye on the #1 dress for when it goes on sale. My wallet is screaming for mercy.


    Normally I wouln't put so much stock on his opinion of my outfits, but it's an important event for him and I'm willing to "play wife".
