This happened last year, and I ran to Forever 21 and got a cheap but cute dress I love, but I wore it last year, and its too big now. Since I am shrinking, and I have NO use for a cocktail dress outside of this event, I am going to rent. My cousin Kristen rented a dress from Rent the Runway for her birthday last year and had great things to say about it, so that is my plan! But I can't pick a dress!
1st, there is the size issue. I am a 16 ish right now, but who knows what I will be in January. And 16 is straddling the line of straight and plus sizes. Because I am paranoid, I am just looking at plus dresses for now, but maybe I will get the courage to venture to the other side of the site before the event.
Anyhoo these are the ones I like, but I want to know what you think!
I really like this Slate & Willow black sparkly dress. I like that it will hide my arms that I don't love, BUT it is hella short.
Like look at the back!
I fell in love with this Badgley Mischka dress at first sight. It reminds me of 1920's glamour and I love the shape. PLUS It's Badgley freaking Mischka.
But is it too fancy for "Cocktail" attire?
So they make it short.
Definitely a contender.
Until I saw this one. I capital L LOVE the color. Also Badgley Mischka!
But strapless and my big boobies :(
So then I saw this one! Badgley Mischka Encore.
Another great color! AND look at the neckline! I love that its conservative (because of said boobies).
And look at the back!!
It also comes in Green!
What do you guys think? Any favorites? Any other Badgley Mischka Label whores out there haha. Should I venture into straight sizes (where there are more options?)
