I have so much to update with my blog. Have been in Florida for my reunion and just now getting back into the groove of everything.
First of all....I have to say, the dress was a HIT! Here it is!
I am the one in the red....and don't my friends look awesome!!! These are my two BFF's that I have known since the beginning of time. I cannot express to you how much fun it was to see everyone again and talk and dance! We definitely partied like rock stars!!!
I had shown my friends the front of my dress but saved the back for a surprise. When my friend Kim saw it she said...."oh, there's a party in the back....a BIG party!" Haha! Here's the back....the guys are two of my classmates and my BFF's spouse.
I had to do some strategic taping in order to keep everything covered that should be covered. ;)
So, here is my advice when picking out a dress for a reunion or a special event (not necessarily for a wedding though because you wouldn't want to one-up the bride!).
* ACCENTUATE the POSITIVE - know what your best 'parts' are and show them off tastefully....[ie, if you have good legs (I do not) where a dress that shows a little leg.] Having the right FIT for your body is key.
* Wear COLOR...you want to wear a color that does not wash you out and branch out from your basic black dress. Save that for the wedding.
* Wear something that makes you feel like a million bucks! When you feel great in what you are wearing you will carry yourself with confidence.
