I told you all here that I have a black tie event coming up. Thank you for all your advice! I decided to go with floor length. Gina made a great point that since this is our first year attending, it's better to play it safe and scope out the scene for next year.
I scoured Rent The Runway for floor length gowns and I was pretty disappointed with their options. I didn't love any of the dresses enough to pay $100-$200 to rent for 1 night. Then, I considered getting a J.Crew Arabelle dress using a discount code but it would still be over $250.
So, today I decided to check out Nordstrom Rack and Saks Off Fifth and jackpot! Found two cute and affordable dresses! Which one should I wear?
Dress 1: Lavender 5/48 by Saks ($87)
Dress 2: White BCBG ($52)
Okay...I cannot tell a lie. After re-trying them on to take these pics, I already decided on the one that I'm planning to wear but I'd still love to hear your opinions! Please vote!
