More shopping!

Ok, this time, I haven't bought anything but it is only a matter of time I would guess.

First up, the final product of the dress for our anniversary. This didn't include any jewelry or anything and I ended up wearing my hair in a long pony-tail, but I think you get the idea.

Now on to the shopping! I am looking for a dress for a wedding in two weeks. I put these two on hold till Saturday and H has seen the pix. He likes the first one and so do I. It is the more expensive of the 2 but we both like it. I think it looks more 'movie-star' which is always a good goal. The second one I think looks more elegant. It is navy and silver which is really pretty. My camera battery was low and so I had to turn off the flash. Unfortunately that means that the aperture was open and I am not real steady so these are pretty shaky. Sorry. I am going to go back tomorrow and show H, so maybe he can take a better photo.

This one, I just couldn't help myself. I was around the first time this was 'popular'. This just made me laugh so much that I had to take a photo. Do you remember when Madonna wore something just like this in that terrible Susan movie? I do realize how ridiculous this looks, but you have to laugh. I have lived through the 80s three times now!!

First off, I had to laugh at the Madonna dress! That would have been oh so perfect for either of my proms, as I'm a child of the 80's as well.

I love both the other two dresses, they look amazing on you. I think I agree that the second one is more elegant, but then you also have the whole strapless while dancing problem to worry about - a strapless dress looks a lot less elegant when you're constantly having to hitch it up. So I don't know if you're much of a dancer or not, but the first one might be better if you are.

Which dress did you get? I don't think you could go wrong with either. They are both beautiful.

I'm horrified by the return of the 80's - except for the big hair. I can do that without trying.

The second one, definitely. It is so elegant and understated. I think the first one doesn't quite pull of what it's trying to do.

Let us know where you ended up!
