HEEEEEELP

Ladies, long time no talk, yeah? Lets get down to some huge news & no Im not talking about our Commander in Chief. I have been asking Nick foreveeeeeeer if Apple is going to have a Christmas party. Ever since he's worked there, I've wanted to go to a Christmas party. Just the idea of getting to put faces to the stories I've heard, and lets be honest, I want to dress up!

As a stay at home mamacita, I never get the chance to dress up in a semi formal dress. Well and if Im totally honest, even when I was working out of the home, I never got the chance to wear a semi formal dress. So imagine my excitement when Nick sent me an email with a Christmas party invite from the company!! Not only is it a Christmas party at a hotel downtown, but we are staying the night at the hotel - aka no T Rex - aka Mommy and Daddy time with drinks and dancing, BOOM!

So I am in a serious predicament - a dress! I have been looking at Tobi.com , 6pm, Kohls, Lulus.com, and Kiki La Rue. I LOVE SOOOOOOOO many of them, but none that make me go "OOO thats the one I want to wear in the spotlight wear that night.

Nick has told me his "requirements": A little lace is okay, but not overkill, CANNOT be shorter than knee length (something about not wanting his coworkers to see the goods, I dont know), and it cannot be TOO MUCH sequins (is there such a thing?).

I am going to the mall in 2 weeks with 2 of my bestest girlfriends to try on every dress find "the one" if I can't find it online by then. Here are a few I've pinned on my "Holiday Dress ideas" board on Pinterest.

The blue and the first black are my favorite. The other two are too matronly. You're a young hot mama, lower that neckline a touch!

Peace Love Applesauce- Terri said...

You lost me at too much sequins... How dare he??! ;o)

That's funny that he has an opinion on your dress, my husband would be like, "what's a cocktail dress?"

Have fun shopping!

Kristen said...

I love the thrid option!

I definitely like the top on the best. Your hubby is very smart, I think his requirements are right on point!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the first one! I also really like the Jennifer Lopez one you pinned, but I guess that's too much lace for hubby?

I love the blue one. I think you'd look great in that color. And you've got great arms!

I have several JLo dresses from Kohl's and love them. They fit like a glove.

I love the first black one best, then the blue one next... Not crazy about the red one, and the second black one doesn't have enough pizazz... I would get a simple black and accessorize with bling and your bling shoes.
