The time has come for me to start my Aspen gala dinner dress. This is a formal work event. Literally the only time all year where I have occasion to get this dressed up. I can’t decide what to make! Will it be:
Something long and modern, like this Drew Backless Dress from Named Clothing
Some Gatsby inspiration?
something a little more lana del rey?
Gertie’s strapless party dress? or maybe some franken-dress action- I’m thinking strapless party dress bodice, with an elisalex tulip skirt. An Elisagert. Gertielex. Whatever.
I CAN’T DECIDE. Time’s ticking away.
And then there’s the fabric question! If I’m going the long and flowy route I think chiffon is the obvious choice. But for any of the more structured options I just can’t make a decision. Taffeta? Silk Dupioni? Brocade? Velvet? NO SATIN (except i might possibly consider silk duchesse, but who am I kidding I don’t have $50/yd).
HELP (I need all 3 of you followers to weigh in on this, I don’t have a big enough following to allow anyone to slack off!)
PS here’s what I wore last year:
that’s some secondhand designer silk right there. I also wore it to my own birthday party. it’s my birthday and I’ll be overdressed if I want to.
