My main fear is that I won't be able to find a dress this week, partly because I don't have the time to dedicate to shopping and partly because I don't want to spend lots of money on a dress I am not completely happy with and will get minimal usage out of, genuine Black Tie is not that common a dress code these days! So... I do have a dress that I love, albeit one that I have got a fair bit of mileage out of already though, well for a floor length gown! Bridesmaid at one wedding, guest at another and a St Vincent's Gala Ball a few years ago. So my dilemma is, is it okay to wear the dress again next weekend? There will be a few people that attended the St Vincent's Ball that will also be at this one, including colleagues of my husbands.
This is the dress in question. I just took it out of the box so ignore all the creases!
This is what it looks like on.
This photo was taken at the Wedding but I wore it with the same wrap to the Gala Ball and wore my hair up in a similar style. Low bun, sort of messy and slightly to the right as the dress ties around the neck on the left. Do you think if I change the wrap and do something a bit different with my hair I can get away with it? There is a 2 year gap between wearings as well! Or should I milk this for all it's worth and go and buy something new? I know, first world problems and all but would love to know all your thoughts!
