The Great Dress Debate

Sep 16, 2011

One of my best friends is getting married next weekend. I already know what I am wearing for her wedding day but I can’t seem to make a decision for the Rehearsal Dinner. Here are my two choices. Both are old dresses I already own and love but never get to wear often because they are pretty dressy. So take your vote and help me make a decision! Do ya’ll like Dress 1 or Dress 2 better? I always love getting other’s opinions on these kind of things!



As you can see by the tiny hand at the bottom tugging my dress someone had had enough of Mommy trying on clothes! Have a fabulous weekend!

  10. I looove both of them, but I would go with the #2, it seems less party and more rehearsal dinner. Have a great weekend!!

    They both look amazing but I vote for # 1:)

  12. Rock the philip lim! but you can't go wrong with either. but you many not have another opportunity to wear the one until spring. the black one can be worn all year.

  13. Ohh #2 definitely has more of the wow factor!!! The color is gorgeous and you look fantastic in it!!! I also just have to add that dress one is adorable, but not my top vote this time.

  15. My vote is Phillip Lim!!! Love it!
