I once was kicked out of clothing store. I was in college. My friend and I were trying on random outfits. We also happened to be taking pictures of ourselves in these outfits -- kind of like an impromptu modeling shoot that was captured in cramped fitting rooms with unflattering lighting.
Mostly we modeled dresses, but as I strolled through one store I found an outfit so unlike me that I was compelled to try it on. I ducked into a fitting room and poured myself into zebra pleather pants, a fringed black halter top, and tottering silver platform heels.
The best part? This particular fitting room opened directly into the store rather than being contained in a separate hallway. I stepped out into the store in all my ridiculous glory.
I posed. My friend snapped a picture. The nearest store employee asked us to leave.
That picture still cracks me up.
I've matured a bit since then, but obviously only a little because recently I bought three dresses, took them home, and then conducted the photo shoot -- which is a long and convoluted way to introduce today's post and my current conundrum.
I'm going to a wedding where my daughters will be flower girls, and I'm trying to choose what to wear. I'm decisively indecisive, so instead of spending too long in a store weighing the merits of each dress, I'm now spending too long in front of the mirror in my closet weighing the merits of each dress.
And I'm roping you into things by asking for your help.
Pros: Although the picture might not highlight it well, the neckline of this dress is attractive and interestingly asymmetrical.
Cons: Pretty but relatively predictable floral pattern.
Pros: Feminine and light lines.
Cons: The color is just slightly more pink than flesh color. Is this dangerously close to a total wash-out when you're pale (as I am)?
Pros: Nice detail with black and white contrast.
Cons: The dress bunches somewhat in the back, hence my hidden hand holding back some extra fabric. That wouldn't unnatural at all to walk around like that for a day, right?
Would you help an indecisive girl out? I'm open to opinions.
