So I'm ditching the black BCBG for a more casual dress. Don't want to be over dressed since the dinner is casual and it's from 5-8. Anyway, on our date today Matt and I browsed some fun boutiques on Melrose and I found these 2 dresses that I loved (bought both!!) hehe.

Which should I wear? And I won't be wearing these grey pumps, just slipped 'em on for height :)

Ok this is hard!!!!!!! And yes, you look fantastic in everything, so that makes it super hard to choose. I think I love them both - #1 is more fun and flirty and #2 is a bit more glam.. With your venue choice, I may opt for #2, just cuz it's kinda glam, but if you paired #1 with some really hot gold shoes and jewelery, it would be perfect too! I didn't help at all LOL, because I adore both and they both look smokin hot on you! Sorry!!

Thanks everyone...#1 is way ahead :)

missylou- sent!! Good luck.

Tash- I totally get what you're saying so that didn't confuse me :) I LOVE #2 (Matt hates it of course) ha! I will see what i feel like on day of, but I love either so I'm happy. I DID try it on with gold shoes last night and orange ones :) :)

soontobemrspatton- I don't have any clue what that movie is but judging from your apology and you prefacing the comment with "if I had to pick" I'm assuming it was a hideous outfit movie. LOL!! I like bringing ugly outfits to life...

Have a beautiful day ladies!! 2 weeks away...AAAHH!

Of course you have orange shoes!!!!!!!!! I think you are my hero. :)

Tash- Matt hates most things when he first sees them. He hated it in the dressing room and I still ran it up to the register so that doesn't usually stop me from buying it. :) lol.

And I have the cutest orange shoes!! They are like 5 years old but they go with everything!! I wear them a lot with black or grey dresses for work for a color pop...I will be sad when I totally wear them out.

Love you girl!!

LOL, no no  don't let it stop you! Not what I meant. But that night is about the two of you, so you can wear the one he likes better and not be too sad since you love them both LOL. You're too darn cute!

Yeah orange would look crazy with black or grey. I am on the hunt for yellow shoes, mildly obsessed and can't find any I like. Ah well..

Ooohhh! Yellow is super hot. Do you guys have Macy's ? (they carry Steve Madden) Or anywhere that has Steve Madden shoes? He has these yellow classic pumps that are super high and fun. Here is a pic...

Hey Tashasita- I see you're looking for cute yellow shoes with an ankle strap.  Just bought these recently and I love them.  I think they are cute and comfy without being too high.  Not super dressy, but I've worn them with more casual dresses and I personally think they look great for that extra punch of yellow! Check them out. :)
