So, nine dresses arrived last week for my event this past Saturday. I haven’t had a chance to post about them because, well, I was too busy trying them on and arguing with American Express.

Yes. I purchased so ridiculously that Amex thought my card had been stolen. I finally convinced them that it was, indeed, ME who bought all that stuff and, after they stopped snickering into the phone, they put the charge through.


So, here are the final two contenders. I will spare you the others as they either (a) didn’t fit or, (b) were not at all flattering.

Here is Dress #1: the Boob Dress

Finalist Dress

I liked this dress solely because it was long enough to fit me AND my I never thought I could wear a halter-style dress. You know, because I have NO BOOBS. G-d bless this dress, but, sadly, it was a bit too sexy for the business affair I needed it for. Husband was slightly saddened by this.

Finalist Dress 2

Yes, I have to stand on my bathtub to get a full length view of myself in my bathroom. Everyone say hello to my towels.

Here is Dress #2: The Scuba Suit in Satin

The Final Pick

This dress fits like a scuba suit, except it’s, uh, stretch satin. It’s hard to see, but it has some really cool seaming around the boobs (there’s a theme here, isn’t there?) and the waist. It was JUST long enough to wear with my heels. It was comfortable and the best part was I didn’t have to wear a bra. I love that. And I loved this dress.

The Final Pick 2

Here is the back of my hair for the evening. This is totally uninteresting except for the fact that I have never had hair long enough to do anything close to this, so I am very proud. Husband was not into it – he likes the long, flowy look (see: Victoria’s Secret). He did, however, get a kick out of the fact that I didn’t have a bra on. There was a part of me that wanted to go “commando” just to see if I could, but the wiser, scaredy-cat side of me just plain ol’ chickened out.

Gala Hair

Hi, Dad.

Here is we two all purdied up and ready to go out like grown ups. Doesn’t happen often, but we clean up real nice, don’t we? How handsome is Husband, by the way?!

Out Like Grown Ups

We were asleep by 11:15. We are such animals.

    1) You’re hot. 2) How the hell have you had two kids with that stomach? 3) I sent my good friend Dani from Heels to you for fashion advice, and clearly I did not steer her wrong.

    You two look fabulous! I love both dresses but the first one would have definitely been my pick if it weren’t for the whole business aspect of the evening.

  5. Stephanie Says:

    Uh, you had a baby when? Damn woman!
    Please, please, puh-lease tell me that you kept dress #1 for some other occasion? Even if it is just to wear around your house.

  6. Sara Says:

    Awesome! Do you have other plans for the dress? I like that it’s not “conventional” — the seaming is nice.
    But the real question — how many cows have you seen today?

  7. Norma Says:

    Wow. What towels. Great photos. Especially the bathtub shots.

  8. Em Says:
