I virtually never wear dresses anymore, not even to church because ours is very casual.
I feel like I did my time; I wore a dress or a skirt every Sunday (a.m and p.m) and Wednesday night when I was growing up. My mom had strong ideas about what it meant to be the preacher's family.
But we are driving to Canada next week for my brother's wedding, and I needed something to wear, so I hit Kohl's. I'm not easy to fit because I'm very petite, so I was quite happy when I found two possibilities, and they were under $20 each!
I'm going to return one of them, since they are similar in color and I really don't need two.
You can help me decide which one to keep!
Things you need to know:
I cannot wear anything remotely resembling a heel
Yes, this is as "tan" as I will ever be
My nine year old took the photos, so...
(it's hard to tell in this photo, but it also has turquoise in it)
Honestly, these pictures pretty much confirmed my suspicion that Opt. 1 looks better, but I'd still be interested in your opinions. The only thing I don't like about #1 is that more of my very white and somewhat spider-veiny legs show.
Now, about the shoes. With the first dress I'm wearing black peep-toes that I think might look too much like slippers. With the second dress I'm wearing a black patent ballet flat.
As I mentioned, heels are out, but I might possibly be able to swing a low wedge. Target had a couple of options online; whether or not I'd be able to find them in my size in the store is another thing.
I also thought these were cute, but I'm not sure if they're wedding appropriate.
So, which dress?
And what is your opinion about the shoes? Is a low wedge any better than a flat? Do you like either of the above wedges? Is the turquoise flip-flop too casual?
Or should I just stay with my black flats, and if so which ones?
