For all of you lawyers and law student's you're familiar with the Barrister's Ball. For those of you who aren't, it's a semi-formal event at the end of the school year for those in law school. So basically, it's a law school prom! This year I have the pleasure of attending Barrister's Ball with Brian, right before he graduates law school! I am so excited. I love a good excuse to get dressed up and have some fun! But, like anything else, I am fretting over what on earth to wear.
Do I go with a long dress?
Do I stay with a short dress?
How dressy should I go?
All of those questions have been hovering over me since Brian told me the date! I love that it's Great Gatsby themed though! I've pretty much narrowed down my options to renting from Rent the Runway, but I would like a second (or third, fourth, or fifth) opinion! I have exactly one month until the ball!
Short Dress Options...
I like the idea of having a short dress the best because I know I will be more comfortable and shorter dresses tend to fit my body (and shortness) better. Here are my top seven (did I go overboard?...probably...)
Long Dresses Options....While I much prefer short dresses, the beauty and sophistication of a longer dress is not lost on me! They always looks stunning on and usually make me look taller than 5'2, which is a plus! I just don't know if I want to "deal" with having on a long dress all night. Hmm, decisions, decisions!
one // two // three // four // five
And then there's the debate if I want to just wear a dress that I already have! I have my beloved Tory Burch dress that I have only worn twice that I simply love. The silvery-gold details are just plain amazing. It is comfortable and I know it fits me very well.
