I need your help on this one. Everytime I ask my FI he keeps sayng wear whatever makes you happy.
Here is my dilemma… Every year my office has this annual awards banquet. It is really nice. We stay at a really nice hotel and there is open bar, a ton of food a comedian and a DJ. It is a ton of fun and we get to get all dressed up and relax for a night. Every year we have gone I have always bought myself a new dress to wear for the party. But I never wear t again and I just can’t pay money for something I won’t wear again when we have a wedding to pay for.
I have 2 dresses in my closet that I wore to previous parties. Do you think people will notice that I wore the dress before?
I wore the purple and black dress last year and I loved it. It was a $30 dress I got at Marshall’s and I now where every chance I get. It looks great on and my FI thinks I look really sexy in it.
The silver dress I wore 2 years ago. It’s not as nice but it has a nice shape and I really like the color. My FI doesn’t like it as much so it has just been sitting in my closet.
Which dress should I wear? The purple and black one or the silver one? and Will people remember that I wore the dress again to the party or should I just bite the bullet and buy a new dress?
This is the purple annd black dress. The top is in purple (it is not the exact dress – mine has sleeves but I can’t find it anywhere on the internet)
This is the dress. Mne is in silve/grey without sleeves

I say wear the purple and black one but accessorize it differently than you did last year! Maybe add a belt and cool tights (if it’s cold) to make it look a little different and wear your hair differently. I doubt anyone will notice if you just tweak it a little bit 🙂

People will not remember what you wore the year before. I vote for the purple dress!

We will be inside for most of the time. Im not sure if a belt will work with that kind of dress though? Plus my FI HATES belts on dresss. Everytime I show him a weddind dress that has any sort of sash he will just say no belts. But a nce long necklace maybe? I got these cute new black glttery pumps I can’t wait to wear with it!

It depends.. some people might remember but it’s not a big deal. I’m the type of person that would probably remember if i was somewhat close to you. Like coworkers who you work with everyday. But it’s not a big deal. So if you don’t care then go for the black and pruple dress.

Use Rent the Runway. You can rent designer dresses that retail for hundreds or even thousands of dollars for as low as $50. You always get 2 dress sizes just in case you’re not sure which is the correct size. And you can get a backup dress (a different style) for an additional $25, regardless of the rental price. I always use it for special events like this where you’ll only wear the dress once. It’s really a fantastic experience! If you use the link below, you can get $20 off! 🙂

I say to wear the one you like the best, and people won’t remember what you wore. My FI didn’t even remember what I wore to his work party last year, and even if they do remember, they won’t care
