1 dress - 2 looks. YOU decide!

Next week DP and I are off to a Michelin starred gastropub type place and are staying in a beautiful boutique B+B. It's our first night away together in 5 years (since DD was born) and I want to look super hot.

I've bought this and I love it. It's quite VW-ish.

So how do I style it?

Look 1 - Leopard print heels + red lippy + winged eyeliner + possibly flower in pin-up styled hair.

Look 2 - Pinky/purple suede t-bar heels + smokey eyes + wavy/tousled hair.

Cast yer votes please smile

Pretty dress!

I'd go for look 2 but only because I think it's a little different and look 1 is a look that's done a lot.

Sounds a fab treat - enjoy!

Very sexy dress. I'd go for look 2 because leopard print heels says Bet Lynch to me.

I say look 1. But I'm biased and love that vampy, 40s ish look

Look 2. I don't think this is the right venue for Look 1.

Look 1. Just because it's more you. Look 2 sounds fab too but is more run of the mill.

2 but I hate leopard print so I am biased.

Lovely dress. Love the off-shoulders. I'd go for look one. Smokin!

BunnyLebowski Thu 07-Feb-13 17:50:12

Thanks all!

Look 1 is totally me. How I love to dress and how I feel most comfortable and confident. Think I'll go with it smile

Look 2 was me trying to be more mainstream and grown-up and vaguely classy for once grin .

LOVE it ! I think look 1 is wine bar type look and look 2 more gastro pub

Either look is gorgeous, have a great time !

notMarlene Thu 07-Feb-13 17:58:34

grin Look 1 it is then! TBH I doubt you'd feel quite comfortable in look 2...

DuchessFanny Thu 07-Feb-13 17:58:39

ooops you've decided already - ignore me wink

chubbymomie2012 Thu 07-Feb-13 18:15:40

Look 2 for me.

I'd take a quick look at the other guests if I was staying and changing there.

Our local posh eateries are as likely to get jeans and hoddies as posh dresses, or families celebrating grannies 70 th. But I am rather in the wilds.

I always dress up, because I never get the chance, but here 2 would be more appropriate.

If you are near a city with wine bars etc, than go with 1 if that is more you.

Whatever, have a wonderful time. I still remember getting DSIS to have the DDs overnight so we could go to DH's works do.

Posh hotel, sex, beautiful shower and getting changed in peace, make up, long dress. Adult conversation, dancing and child great breakfast and no clearing up. DHs lot are nice and let us have plenty of time alone. Bliss

As soon as I saw it was you I knew look 1 is more you than look 2.

Dress up, enjoy. I'm off for a girls weekend to a posh gastro pub and am glamming it up in shorts and heels.

ElectricMonk Thu 07-Feb-13 18:53:42

Based on your profile pics, I'd say you can pull off #1 whereas most women couldn't, so I would have fun with it!

Gorgeous dress, BTW. Just as a side note, does it come up big/small/true to size?

HyvaPaiva Thu 07-Feb-13 19:32:19

I instantly thought 1 because my own style is heavily influenced by classic 40s, red lipstick, vamp looks. Then I looked at your pics and you are so style 1. Sounds perfect for you. Have fun!

Love the dress. Deffo look one, but without the flower imho.

notMarlene Thu 07-Feb-13 20:42:38

Oh yes, hair up but no flower.
