Just wondering what you think of this e-party outfit. It’s going to be a pretty big party (200 people) in a nice banquet hall in January 2014.
I think since the dress is pretty simple I’d have to wear a “statement” necklace, I’d swap the plainer pendant out for the bigger more detailed one in the photo. The necklace/pendant will be a gift from FI’s parents to “welcome” me into the family, so I think it would be appropriate to wear to the party.
I’d wear black almost opaque pantyhose and a pair of my moms diamond or pearl earrings. What do you think? Is it formal enough? If not any suggestions?
PS – I’m going to be 24 years old at the time of the e-party, if that matters lol
Double PS – Sorry if the picture is huge!

@Stephville: Adore everything (esp. the Decoltissimos) but the necklace (not a big fan of Tiffany silver). Your outfit is so chic/mature, but the necklace is a bit juvenile to me (probably because everyone wore them at my high school). BUT since it’s a gift, I think it’s a perfect way to honor his family.
I’d actually ditch the black pantyhose if formal is what you’re going for. I think black tights with a dress/skirt tends to look dressed down (more of a “night-out” style).
Also, diamond earrings would mesh better with the necklace than pearls.

Oh man I love that dress! Where’s it from? And I think that outfit would look beautiful. It looks so classy and elegant.

@MlleFabuleux: I was even thinking the necklace was a bit too casual, but since its from his mom and dad, that means more to me then it being just perfect, you know?
I was also even re-thinking the black tights right after I made the post, I think they would add too much weight, since my shoes and the bottom of the dress are black.. Plus I dont want the shoes to get lost in a sea of black! 🙂
I agree with you about the diamond ear rings!
@starz88962: Thank you! 🙂 Here’s the link for she shoes: http://us.christianlouboutin.com/ca_en/shop/women/new-decoltissim-patent-1.html
Thanks so much for your help! I feel so much better having some outsiders perspectives! Ahh I’m so excited! I think I’m going to order the dress tonight!

@Stephville: I started replying before I finished reading your post, and then I saw it’s a gift from your FI’s parents. I agree that that does make it all the more “perfect” and that the gesture you’ll make by wearing it will speak volumes (far more than wearing the fashionably ~ideal~ jewelry would)!

@akirasan: Thanks so much! The dress is from net-a-porter.. Here’s the link!
I just wanted to say thanks again to everyone who replied! I ordered the dress last night! Fiance loves it too! It costed a little more then I intended (because of customs+duty+shipping to Canada) but when something is right, its right! =)
