And The Final Outfit Choice For The Weekend Was…
Hey there! I’m participating in a contest on Refinery29.com to be their next style blogger. Click here to vote for me! All you have to do is click the heart near my name. Thanks!
Last week, I wrote a blog post asking you all to help me pick out for Loyola University Maryland‘s alumni Bull & Oyster Roast, which was on Saturday. After a bunch of votes, comments, IMs, messages, texts, and emails about what outfits I should wear, I finally decided on… (drum roll)
…the green Jessica McClintock dress with the black Nine West shoes!
This combination got slightly more votes than the blue Mise en Scene by Ruffian blue dress. To really decide what to wear, I went by how recently I wore each dress. I hadn’t worn the green dress in over a year, as opposed to wearing the blue dress in October, so I went with that one. I paired it with crystal chandelier earrings and a crystal cocktail ring, both of which I picked up on SUPER sale after Christmas. It was tough to decide on other colors that wouldn’t make me look too holiday-y, since the dress is a very bright (and shiny) shade of green, so I went with navy nail polish and eye make up.
For my hair, I was very inspired by Lea Michele’s hair at the Golden Globes so I tried that out. I don’t normally wear my hair up or pulled back, so this was really different for me! I loved it, so I’ll definitely be trying this hair style again soon.
Navy manicure. Thanks to Kelly and Lindsey for the suggestion!
I also kept up my new year’s resolution of wearing more bling in 2011 both nights. In addition to the crystal accessories on Saturday night, I broke out this sparkley Michael Kors tank on Friday night (paired with a blazer, of course…it’s cold outside!).
Thank you everyone for voting and your suggestions!! I couldn’t have picked an ensemble without you!
