Outfit Dilemma–Help NOW!

Let’s deviate big time from the norm on this blog. Those possessing male genitalia may be rolling their eyes, but I’d actually like your opinions too.

We’ve got Ken’s office party tonight. I have never met any of these people. As you know I can be slightly outrageous and crude and I do not want to get him fired. Essentially, I want to make a decent first impression and not look like a slut. Keep in mind, the party starts at a local brewery (score) then we are taken by brewery-provided-bus to a fancy restaurant near Boulder, then back to brewery. I am told to dress “fancy.” Ken will be in a suit and tie.

I am really pushing it to the wire here, but I have two outfit options, so let’s have a vote. Do not pay attention to hair and makeup. There is none. I haven’t even showered yet. Still have to go for a run and shave my pits: SICK!! That’s what happens in the winter.

But first of all, one of my pet peeves, the things I hate THE MOST is when I get home and find this piece of locked plastic shit on my clothes. They should pay me for my time to come back to the store to have it removed. Or I should buy one of those removers for my home, then I could shop lift a lot.

P1110671

Option #1:

Dress: Forever 21 ($13.70! Bargain of the week)
Necklace: Kohls
Shoes: No clue
Hose: Hanes from Kohls

P1110673

Option: #2:

Skirt: Forever 21, faux leather (fleather or pleather or whatever)
Shirt: Kohls
Necklace: Kohls
Hose: Hanes fromKohls
Shoes: No clue

P1110668

Which one shall it be?

Option #1
Option #2
Option #3: None of the above. You should stay home, get in your sweats and not embarrass anyone.

  2. 2!!!
    Love both but 2....love even more!
    Have fun!!

    ReplyDelete
  3. #2! But I still think you could ROCK a sequin mini with a black turtle neck.

    ReplyDelete
  4. #2, you look great in both, but #2 has more color.

    ReplyDelete
  5. You look great in both...but 2!

    PS I bought a dress at Forever 21 last week also--for $15! I'm sure it will fall apart in like 6 wears but whatever--it'll get me through the holidays. WINNING!

  6. I like #1 for a holiday party. But I think the shoes go better with the outfit in #2.

    ReplyDelete
  7. #2 - festive and still very hot!

    ReplyDelete
  8. I like the first one better but they both look really nice. Not sure about the shoes though. The outfits are H-O-T..the shoes are too casual.

  10. You look great in both. But I LOVE number two. Now go find that razor!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I like outfit #1 (actually I like them both) but I agree with Rebecca that the shoes are too casual

    ReplyDelete
  12. You look amazing in both!

    I'd probably wear option #2. The cut and fit of that top is really pretty.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Both are adorable but I like the color in option 2!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Number 2... you look great! Have a wonderful time..they will love you

    ReplyDelete
  15. #2 definitely. As an added bonus #2 is also your favorite topic! Coincidence?

    ReplyDelete
  16. #2 has my vote. #1 needs fancier shoes =)

    ReplyDelete
  17. #2! Love the color! Always great for winter blahs! Gorgeous.

    ReplyDelete
  18. #2, but get yourself some sexy dainty black heels.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Both look great, except for the shoes!! Those are work shoes!! Get some strappy heels!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. #2! Love the colour.

    As for the security tag, as long as it's not an ink one (doesn't look to be) you can cut it off yourself with side cutters. Snip off the top and cut the pin from inside. Or just cut the pin where it attaches to the tag. No, I'm not a thief, I've just been working in retail for *far* too long!

  21. I vote #1 but you can't go wrong (unless you don't shave those pits LOL!) - Angela

    ReplyDelete
  22. Option 1, no hose. No one wears hose unless they are over 70. You are not over 70. yes it will be cold. Suck it up - I do. So...option 1, no hose, hooker heels (aka high heels). Yes, I know they will hurt as well. Again, suck it up. This is from a fashionista runner. have a great time and as long as you don't talk about poop - you'll be fine.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'm diggin #2, but you need some sexier shoes girl! Show some toe!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I agree with the other Rebecca. #2 but different shoes.

  26. I vote #2 b/c it's more fun! And you're totally fun, so you should go with the fun outfit!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I vote #2...and other shoes...or boots?
    do you have black boots

    #1 you also look great..but it is missing something festive...I am no fashionista trust me...

    sequin mini? lets see that option

    ReplyDelete
  28. I deleted my 1st comment because I forgot to say have a great time. Have a great time! My vote goes to outfit 2. The color is so nice. I've gotta agree with the other commenters on the shoes though.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Number 2 with small high heeled shoes.

    ReplyDelete
  30. #2 and if you fart just blame it on the guy next to you.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I vote #2 with new shoes. Do you have knee high black boots?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Option 1 by a long shot. Nothing wrong with number two (that should be funny to you), but number one shows off your shoulders, arms, and little itty bitty waist more.

    ReplyDelete
  33. #2...number one looks too summery. I love the color too :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Option #2 for Sure and for sure different shoes!

    ReplyDelete
  35. outfit #2 with Newer up to date shoes! ♥

    ReplyDelete
  36. No. 1 but you need sassier shoes! Can't go wrong with black! Great deal too.

  39. Outfit #2 without the hose. Sub in some tights and high boots. Hose=Old.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Ditto on #2 and different shoes. :) Gotta have either sexier strappy all black shoes or high heeled, sexy, black boots.:)

    Love both outfits, though!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Option #2! No hose and some sexy black heels!!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Option #2! No hose and some sexy black heels!!

    ReplyDelete
  43. If he's in a suit & tie, you're in #1. Can't go wrong with an LBD.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Yes! Boots! Do you have some? Skip the hose, but if you think your legs will be too cold, how about tights and boots? This is fun.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Definitely number one, with different shoes, WITH the hose! Number 2 is nice, but not quite fancy enough.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Number 1. This is Ken's new job, right? LBD always tasteful - you want to make a good impression. Number2 - more fun but you don't know these people and plethor might be too over the top.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Number 2!!!! But with different shoes.

    ReplyDelete
  48. #2. Color the security tag black with a sharpie. Get even more creative color it a pattern to make it an accessory :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. Option 2 for the brewery party and definitely no hose. Never wear pantyhose.

    And find somewhere else to wear Option 1 immediately -- you look great in that dress.

    Have fun!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Option 1! But only because of the fancy dinner part ... LOVE them both!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I like 1. And why does no one like hose? I do.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Wow, lots of votes for option #2. But i'd vote for Option #1 hands down. BTW: At first glance, I thought that the pic of your pit was a very veiny back. ick.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Love both! But I would go with option #1 for a Christmas party. Also, the shoes have got to go. Some cute pumps?

    ReplyDelete
  54. I like outfit #2! Have fun :-)

    ReplyDelete
  55. I know that you are over talking about vegas but I thought that you should know that I found out through the grapevine (aka facebook) that a runner from Vancouver, BC who after running the rock n roll vegas marathon experienced "flu-like symptoms" and progressivly got worse until she passed away yesterday afternoon. I will keep her name anonymous out of respect for her family but I am shocked that this happened and can only wonder what it was that she was infected with. How much more fallout will there be? Truely shocked...

    ReplyDelete
  56. #2, I like the added color to the outfit :)

    ReplyDelete
  57. You look great in #2. (WAIT - DID I JUST SAY THAT?!?). Seriously - you look gorgeous in that color. :)

    ReplyDelete
  58. Ok- #1 looks awesome on you, and other than the shoes (!), I would vote for this one...however, I think you should go with #2 because if you wear dress #1- the other women are going to hate you! Those toned legs and arms- tiny waist- HOT MAMA is right (see Ted's answer...need I say more?)!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Number two!!! (No pun intended) LOVE that shirt, I was just in Kohl's this afternoon and had to force myself to pass it by and buy gifts for other people.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I would say #1 with different shoes and a shrug or sparkly sweater/jacket but then I'd be making my own Option 3 I guess...

    ReplyDelete
  61. You have a nice lean bod. and great arms and shoulders. Show it all off with Number 1.
    HAVE A GREAT TIME! :)

    ReplyDelete
  62. The top one. You look GREAT in it.

    ReplyDelete
  63. #1 looks good but with natural hose and a fancier shoe #2 is good but those shoes again are killing the outfit....show off your beautiful legs with a sexy shoe

    ReplyDelete
  64. You can't go wrong. Both are awesome! If I had to choose, it would be two.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I like #1 but all that black washes you out too much. #2 works better for your personality and body IMHO

    ReplyDelete
  66. You can't go wrong. Both are awesome! if I had to choose, I'd pick two.

    ReplyDelete
  67. First and foremost, you look AMAZING in both outfits. Seriously, AMAZING. But as a veteran of office parties at three different companies, I caution you that Option 1 shows way too much skin for that setting. And I say that not because I'm a prude-- I'm not. I live and work in L.A., where dental floss is worn as bikini tops, and why not, if yu've got the body for it? It's just that there's a time and a place, no matter how rockin' your body is, and an office holiday party-- especially your first outing with his colleauges-- isn't the place for a super short, skin tight LBD (even if it shows off your sculpted runner's bod). So it's a good thing your second outfit is also smashing... Option 2 FTW!

    ReplyDelete
  68. Definitely option 1. I think it's classier and more flattering. And sky-high shoes!

    ReplyDelete
  69. 2nd option. . .shows personality more than the LBD. IMHO

    ReplyDelete
  70. I left the comment about the office party setting, and just to be clear: super short, skin tight LBDs are awesome, especially on people who take care of themselves as well as you do. I just want to be clear that my comment wasn't meant to be judgmental in the least. The dress is awesome. You look awesome in it. Seriously, you are an inspiration in that thing. Stunning. Just not for the office holiday party where you meet everyone for the first time. Okay, that's it for my two cents. Have fun!

    ReplyDelete
  71. i like option 2 better. Have fun!

    ReplyDelete
  72. LOVE #2 but I'm sure you already got your outfit on.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Might be too late for my vote as I noticed this was posted three hours ago. But I'd vote #2.

    ReplyDelete
  74. It's probably too late, but you can never go wrong with a LBD. With your figure, the Ler the better.

    ReplyDelete
  75. You look GREAT in both, but I'd go for #2. Ken's colleagues will all be lusting for you.

    Oh, but shave those pits first!!

    ReplyDelete
  76. I love #1! Do you have a colorful pashmina or shawl to throw on too? That'd provide some warmth and some color. Hot stuff!

    ReplyDelete
  77. 2! But you guys probably drinking already!

    ReplyDelete
  78. Ok. HOT MAMA. You're hot in both but #1, LBD, can't be beat. However...geez, your legs are fantastic, get a higher heel! Really. Show off those calves. :)

    ReplyDelete
  79. You'll freeze your ass off in either but go for 2.

    ReplyDelete
  80. No. 2 definitely! Both look great but no. 2 is the wiener!

    And please do not let your arm pit hair get like that again:)

    ReplyDelete
  81. I think you look happier in #1.

    ReplyDelete
  82. you're out by now but I hope you chose #2 ... :)

    ReplyDelete
  83. When did I miss that Ken got a job? Congrats to him!
    You're out now but I'm sure you wore the right outfit since they were both great!

    Can you send me the one you didn't wear so I have something for my work party tomorrow night??

    ReplyDelete
  84. #2 with cute shiny flats - love the boho look!

    ReplyDelete
  85. #2 rocks!! so post pics of what you wore. hopefully you wore some killer strappy, tall as all get out FMP's with it too!!! and some smoky eyes! you look great in that style of shirt!!!! i can see it w/ some nice means and tall boots too for later!

    ReplyDelete
  86. *nice JEANS, not "means". hope you had fun! I threw a Tacky Sweater party and scavenger hunt tonight. it was Epic!

    ReplyDelete
  87. Number 2, although I'm sure I'm too late to matter.

    ReplyDelete
  88. And now, of course, we are all dying to see what you in fact wore. Unless you took both and changed part way through, just to confuse the drooling guys.

    ReplyDelete
  89. #2. I love them both, but the color in 2 plus it's a little lower key as far as tightness. I prefer the tightness, but drinks, dinner, etc... #2 means you can hide any bloating and relax more....

    ReplyDelete
  90. I think #2 is cuter, #1 is hotter. I tend to agree with the previous comment that #1 shows a bit much skin for an office party, but then again most office parties don't start at a brewery, so not too conservative there, it appears.
    Have a good time.

    ReplyDelete
  91. ONE Word: LASER..You will never have to shave again and by the way I like The purple.

    ReplyDelete
  92. I'm late to the party (get it)....I would have said #2 but what did you go with?
