I have a hot date with my realtor on Saturday night (srsly, he's so fine...I wonder if he's into me??) and we decided to use a gift card we have been hanging onto for Nicollet Island Inn. It's a fancy place right by our house.
All of my strapless dresses, including one that I only wore one singular wee time for my 28th birthday, remain a no go with my current top heavy figure. And since I hate shopping with the passion of one thousand burning suns, I have no interest in buying something new. So I'm going to wear this simple little black dress that I bought in Kiev, Ukraine a few years ago. It's hard to tell in the picture, but the material is almost a black tweed. The dress dips a bit in the back and has a slit in the back. It's my sexy Euro LBD.
But help me with shoes and accessories. I have strappy silver heels and strappy black heels in my possession and I am leaning towards the silver pair.
But what I think would really be fun would be hot pink pumps. That I could deal with shopping for. But would hot pink pumps plus tight black dress = trying too hard for a woman in her 30s? I also want to avoid looking like a hooker. I think perhaps part of my problem is that I'm so used to regular mom clothes that I feel like I look like a hooker anytime I'm dressing up, but...maybe I just look like a hooker?
When I was in college I would sometimes refer to myself as Big Leather at parties when I was two drinks to the wind because I had this ridiculous (read: ridiculously FABULOUS) leather miniskirt I was prone to wearing when I wanted to bring sexy back. But Big Leather needs to RIP. I would like to avoid bringing Big Leather back out. Help me to keep Big Leather at bay, while still maintaining an air of (age-appropriate) sexiness.
If I do hot pink shoes then what jewelery? I have very little to choose from so I would have to buy something. I haven't bought a handbag in 10 years (seriously) so if I got something cheap-y at Target, then what kind would I want? Matchy in a hot pink sense? Not matchy?
Other relevant info:
- I have a couple simple & small black bags that I could use if I don't get anything new.
- I don't do earrings.
- I plan to wear my hair down.
