Hey ladies,

I need some fashion help, please! I gave up my fashion sense years ago.

This past spring break if you'll remember, I took daugh and her teenage friends to the beach--It was freezin'. The girls suggested we all go to the local Goodwill and buy sweats as the malls were sold out.

I found the cutest black dress there, perfect fit. Goes to just above knee. I don't know why I bought it--but I did.

It's sleeveless though, but a classic. Can I wear that now?--Hubby is going to take me out to special restaurant next two wks. for my BD. I found a knee length sweater thingy to go over it--Its pretty, but all black...Is that too much? And do I wear black hose and black shoes???? Or is that too much.? I think I need the sweater cover as I always get cold out in restaurants...Thank you.

:D

Yes, you can still wear it now.
Yes, you can wear the black sweater. Or alternatively you could pick something in a bright color.
I'm not a huge fan of black hose, so I would go for skin-tone, but that's just me. It's not a rule, just a personal preference.

What I would do, if you're going to go with the black sweater, is jazz it up with brightly colored purse, or a bold lipstick.

Personally, I stick with some flesh-toned hose, but that's just me. And depending on the restaurant, you might get one of those fun wraps...

Yup. Later in the season black might be okay, but right now neutral would be perfect. It's more bare-legs-but-not.

But my legs aren't tanned. I don't like that look--bare ie. So if we go into Nov, maybe I could wear dress with black hose? But, I never liked black hose--just me and imo.... I'll wear neutral hose now...

Well, the neutral stockings give a nice finish. If, when it gets cooler, you want to try black hose, you could try a black stocking, but stay as sheer as possible.

White hose = nurse

Stick with the nude hose. I think black hose might give you the "going to a funeral" look.

BTW, you can almost never go wrong with a black dress - no matter what. :)

Little Red Barn
10-07-2007, 07:05 PM
Sooo a sprinklin of rhinestones are not too much, I have a pearl choker? What about that with the shoe thingy going on. The shoes are Sierra's.

I know guys...you probably think this is a rather silly thread. But the fact is no. 1 -- I never buy for myself and the sweater thingy is a little expensive, that's why I wanted to ask. And no. 2 -- I never celebrate my BD as my sis died on it many years ago, tragic. But, but, but, when hubby asks this year, to take me out... I"M GOING! Yes, I am! I'm going to surprise him and be ready! :)

Carole

I wouldn't overdo on the sparkles, but then again I rarely do jewelry anyway. I also think nude stockings are better than opaque black, but sheer black is very sexy. My mom taught me a long time ago about the glories of sheer black stockings. They make your legs look more shapely because they appear to outline your legs from every angle. Seams are very sexy, but also tricky to keep straight. And a crooked seam defeats the purpose.

If it were me:

Yes on the black dress.
A sweater is good, but the long one may look too casual. I'd go with a shorter one, and possibly only drape it across the shoulders. (Is case that's vague, think putting on the sweater, but not putting your arms through the sleeves.)
A wrap is very nice and has a sophisticated look.
If I were wearing rhinestones on my shoes, I would opt for a very simple necklace. Pearls may be a bit much. Honestly, I would probably opt for the pearls and skip the rhinestones on my shoes.
Also, I would carry a simple clutch instead of a shoulder bag, especially with a wrap.

What fun! When Mr. Vagabond and I go out, it's usually to somewhere I can get away with jeans.

I love black, it's can be classy and casual, depending on accents.
If you opt for black dress and black stockings, I would also suggest a flesh tone wrap. It will offset the "funeral" look while adding just the right amount of color.

Enjoy your birthday and I hope this special date with your husband will eventually help to ease the pain of birthdays past.

You can wear a black dress any time. If you are wearing shoes with a touch of rhinestone on the toe, be sure to wear necklace or earrings in a silver tone too. It will add some sparkle around your neck.
A bold purse is a good way to liven up all black.

I rarely wear black nylons. I'd go with a skintone nylon. I always considered black nylons very formal and almost never wear them.

a cute little bright colored purse, and a necklace that accentuates the dress's neckline along with the sparkly toed shoes sounds great!

Go for it.

and have a great time!

Close toe shoes if you're wearing any type of hosery. Besides if it's november, you want to wear close toe shoes. I'm an all-black person myself, but neutral is OK. No matter which you choose, go with ultra-ultra sheer. Go with black dress, hose, shoes and add color with your wrap. Dramatic earrings, hair pulled up, no necklace.

If your sandals are heels, they should be ok unless it's cold where you are. Otherwise, you can't go wrong with simple, classic pumps. Flats of any sort can be difficult to pull off with a sexy dress.

Well, Trish beat me to it. What she said. :) Personally, I like a little neckline sparkle with classic black (esp. if you're wearing it on the shoes). And it'd be fun to repeat a little sparkle with the earrings, too. I don't like opaque black hose, but the very sheerest are nice--though it depends on how dressy you want to get. Nude hose are a bit less formal. A black sweater sounds nice enough, though I like Ol' Fashioned Girl's wrap idea best! (Again, it depends on how formal you want to get.)

Have fun, and enjoy celebrating your birthday!

All black works for me, but of course I am a NYer. It will be slimming and make you appear taller than if you wore nude hose. Plus, I just hate nude hose. Better off bare IMO. Black shoes would be ok, or any fall-ish color with black accents. I have a dark terra-cotta and black tweed-ish pair you could borrow if you lived here and wore a size 8.

I'd go with a wrap instead of a long sweater. Sexier.

What is the neckline like?

If the neckline is V-shaped, it'd be fun to have a necklace that follows those lines, like this, maybe:

But then, keep the earrings simple. Or, forego the necklace and go for the dramatic, long earrings.

Definitely. Sheer black is always elegant. Ya know, L'eggs are cheap and pretty silky too. I've even had my hands on a few from Walmart that were really nice, if only for one outing. They ran badly when I tried to get two wearings out of them.

When nude stockings match your skin tone, they can be sexy. Otherwise they can look kinda funky like you keep your legs in hiding. With suntan stockings, the opposite can be the problem like you went overboard with the sunless tanning spray, and only on your legs.

It's a delicate thing, choosing stockings! :D

It's spring now and I have a new black dress. I bought it back in the fall. ...for my auction, failed, i.e., :cough:... It's a sweater type dress, long sleves, a little scoop on the neckline, pretty with black gem thingys on front lower, like where a pocket would be, about 3 gems clustered on each side.

I have to go to a big fashion event tonight which kicks off a bigger event. Lot's of press, etc.. with a champagne fountain, vodka fountain, little food etc.. and a fashion show, blah, blah...

Is the black okay? I have a springy type green pantsuit, cute, but more for semi casual I feel. Will the black dress be ok, even though it's a sweater type (I get cold and it's still cold here)? Can I wear sheer black hose with it, what should I pair it with--gold small purse? And I only have black heels...
thanks

The only place and time a 'little black dress' isn't appropriate is a wedding, and even that is changing. If it's a fancy affair, do't go with a casual pant suit. The black heels will look great. You can wear either sheer black hose or ones that match your skin color.

A small gold purse will look good if your earrings are gold. Otherwise go with a black purse. I don't think the purse thing matters much as long as it's a small evening bag. Better yet, get your husband to carry your stuff and go empty handed. You can leave your stuff in your coat pockets, too.

This sounds like a fun event. Don't worry so much about what you wear, but carry the attitude that you are fabulous, the queen of the room. (A vodka fountain? Wow!)

Some general ideas about what to wear: Some of what you are asking depends on what you look like. I'm short, so I wear heals and like to wear a long necklace because it gives a look of length which is supposed to make me look taller. If you are tall or large or tiny, the rules change. I probably wouldn't wear something clingy all over because my hopes and behind are wide and my tits are small. Is your hair short or long? That can make a difference, too in your choices.

I know that you might make a face about this, but I'd recommend the TV show, "What Not To Wear" where the two fashion experts take a woman who basically can't dress herself and show her, not what's in fashion, but how to make clothes work for her. You get these doudy women who think they're not pretty, and they end up looking wonderful. I's a fun show, too. It's not mean.

As far as jewelry is concerned, I'd say less is more.

Dangling black earrings should be smashing! I think that the little gold purse would be good, too if you already have one of those. If the neckline is a v-neck and plundges a bit, wear a short necklace. If not, forget the necklace.

Really, fashion is not that complicated. Wear what looks good on you and that's appropriate for the occasion (don't wear a prom dress tho a funeral). From what you've said, the dress is perfect.

Remember to stand tall and hold your head up like you're the queen of everything. It sounds to me like you are feeling like you need a confidence injection. Here it is: You'll look FAB-ulous in your little black dress, your heals and your dangling earrings.

Next time, invite me. I wanna go where there is a vodka fountain.

Late as usual, I suggest:

Black sweater with a little bit of sparkly threads throughout. I found one at Wal Mart that was short and flared at the waist, with 3/4 sleeves. It went over my spaghetti strapped little black dress quite nicely.

Nude hose, and in the summer if your legs aren't tanned, get that 'tan in a can' spray makeup. It hides little spider veins and keeps your legs cool. Doesn't rub off on clothes, either.

Shoes - simple, spike heel (not necessarily three inch), preferably in a patent finish.

Jewellery - if you don't want to wear pearls, silver goes nicely with black. Or even a fine gold chain with a single diamond pendant.

Love the idea of these shoes, they sound perfect. I agree with the wrap, IF you already have one (I may have missed that part). I'd probably go hose-less, but if you're one to wear 'em do the nude.

Ooo since there's a fashion thread, I've a question. Can one wear a cute little black dress to exhange vows? Would that be bad?Emily Post would say No, don't wear it. But I say, wear what ever the hell you want, as long as it looks good. :)

One more for the wrap. I'm quite fond of them too. I have an extensive collection, and wear all mine with classy dresses. :P

The skintone nylon would go well with your black dress, if you don't want to go a la fresh.

Happy eating when you go, as you'll probably forget about what your wearing in the end. All, that counts is that you have a wonderful time.

Enjoy. :D

It's your wedding. Wear what you want! Who cares what anyone else thinks?

The last time I had to dress fancy, I think I foundationed with Duct tape and accessorized with legos. I'm probably no help here.

(but black goes with anything, to anywhere... you can't go wrong with it)
