Even though I've pretty much found dresses to wear for the wedding I can't help looking for more, lol. Here's another one (http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/MTYwMFg5OTg=/$(KGrHqNHJEIE92L,-dfYBPoyknkBcw~~60_57.JPG) that I like. Such a classic look, it would go perfect with the bouffant hair style!

Very cool and retro!

I vote for #1. They look perfect.



I still prefer closed toe shoes for a wedding dress that classic, Chiming in to add my vote for that first pair -- I, too, like the look of a closed toe for a formal wedding dress. I also was "sold" by this in the description: "The 2 1/4" heel is wider set to offer a greater amount of balance and comfort." Some brides might welcome an extra bit of "balance" when walking down the aisle. My sister was so petrified about this, that she didn't! She sat with me, her bridesmaid, in the front pew (with the groom and best man across the aisle) and when the moment came just had to navigate about 10 feet to the altar. She said she was so nervous and shaky she wasn't sure she would be able to do even that, especially in her high-heeled shoes (she usually wore flats or low wedges).

You have found quite a few good alternatives to choose from, so there will be no need for any FSUers to spray paint your original suggestion. :lol:

OK, so my good friend just got back from visiting her family in Tucson. She is 5'3", younger than me and wears sky-high heels. She also has about 100 pairs of shoes. :shuffle:

She brought back yet another pair from Tucson and said, in great excitement, YOU could wear these, they have an instep strap! So I tried them on, she's only 1/2 size smaller than me and wow, they actually were comfortable given a 4" wedge. And very cool.

When she couldn't find them online, she called the store in Tucson, waited patiently till they found them in my size and had them shipped here.

I'll pay her back when they come but is that a friend or what!

That's really nice of her, PRLady. Now we want to see the shoes. Wedges are really comfortable vs. heels. In the warm months I practically live in espadrilles.

Since they're not online I can't show them to you!

But the brand is Envy, and they have the same weird heel you see here: http://www.amazon.com/Envy-Womens-Silange-Sandal-Navy/dp/B005UV0CS4/ref=sr_1_39?s=shoes&ie=UTF8&qid=1336582614&sr=1-39.

And I found a few other dresses to consider for my event:

Thoughts?

What kind of event is it? The first dress is more formal (and very Mad Men), the second is more sexy and the third is in between and very classy.

Order all three and return the losers.

Agree with all the above.
More about the event, and what tone you want to project, please.

It's our annual fundraising dinner in San Francisco. This year, because our board meeting is there as well, it's a bigger deal. About 500 people, lefty-granola but with money. Too glitzy is not good, but we're not so formal nor so conservative that I have to dress like a nun.

I want to look appropriately attractive, even sexy in a very muted way, as an executive staffer who has to schmooze her way through the event but would like to be able to eat dinner without wearing the stiffest Spanx on the market.

Agree with all above. I like the 3rd one best. It is really stunning and elegant!

Dress #2 .
It's "different" enough from what you would normally wear.
From what I know of you, I think you can bring it off perfectly.

In that case I vote for dress #3.

If dress #2 looks good on, keep it for a big date night. I fear it's a bit too short for a work event.

:shuffle: My not-so-hidden-bad girl likes that one the best, but it might be too much 50something skin.

I'm counting on IA to show up since she actually knows what I look like, but for reference purposes....http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nvoUtCTZY0g. This was last summer.

ETA: and there you are. I never wear pale yellow, if I have a slight tan it might be OK but otherwise won't it make me look jaundiced?
