NYE Dress Help

cyndicyndi Posts: 3,341Registered Users
I'm going out on New Year's Eve and I want a cute, trendy, sexy dress. I really like the one shouldered look, but can't find too much online.

I like this dress from Banana Republic, but my friends saw it in the store and said it was really flimsy. I may still go and try it on tomorrow...

I also like this one from Bluefly, but it's out of my price range...

prodImage.ms?productCode=2121815&width=300&height=300

I don't know why that didn't work...

http://bluefly.com/pages/products/detail.jsp?PRODUCT%3C%3Eprd_id=2072348539&FOLDER%3C%3Efolder_id=1215&N=945&Ns=Popularity%7c0%7c%7cProduct%2bCode%7c1&Nu=Product+ID

What other websites/stores can I try?

    That's the thing with clothes - you never know how it'll look on you until you try it on. Go to Banana tomorrow!
    Variation of 3B/3C curls.

    Amazed that I finally found a method that works for my hair! Diffuse until 60-70% dry, then let air dry for about an hour. Scrunch and leave it alone!

    That Banana dress looks like the model grabbed a satin sheet or pillowcase and wrapped it around herself - no shape at all.

    I'd be afraid I'd freeze my sweet patooty off. Even indoors.

    I'm glad someone else thinks of that. Apparently we're the only people who do.

    Here's the thing about the Banana Dress, you can totally tell the model is standing all weird to give the dress shape. I hate that because sometimes you get fooled and you're all "WTF, I thought this had a waist???"

    Here's the second dress:

    and I went away hungry from the inhospitable board.

    Is that why we see models and celebrities posing like that, with their legs crossed? I've wondered, in fact, every time I notice it, it makes me think she has to go to the ladies room!

    I thought CGNYC meant the way the model's hands are positioned.

    Yup. Her hands are acting as a belt, and defining the waistline.

    And the back of the dress is probably all clothespinned together.
