Fashion Anxiety

So, I've got a bad case of fashion anxiety.  I haven't had time to plan what I'm wearing to the Yeggies on Saturday.  Never mind time for shopping.  And I didn't really want to spend money anyway.  So today I pulled out absolutely everything in my closet that could conceivably be called "business casual" and tried stuff on.  I immediately decided I didn't want to wear dress pants.  I'm always more confident in a dress.  I finally did decide on something, with help from my friend Julie and my husband, but now I'm worried that it won't be right.  I hate going to an event and feeling like I'm overdressed or under-dressed   I like to blend.  But in this case, I didn't want to be too businessy, because I don't think that's the vibe this young, hip, and twitter-savvy crowd will be going for (someone mentioned sparkles).  I shall try not to think about it any more.

But now WHAT do I do with my hair?

The aftermath...not as bad as I expected, actually.  Probably because I have so few options.

  1. How about the polka dot dress with the blazer, bare legs and the brown boots OR the striped dress, blazer, bare legs, and the kitten heel shoes? Messy updo with some cute earrings? You can come over and raid my closet/limited jewelry box too if you want!

    My favourite from above is the 4th one in the middle row (black dress, blue tights, black boots) but it would look good with some arm candy which I can lend you!!

    Not that I really know what I'm talking about...

  2. Hi, you have a nice detailed blog. Thank you for presenting your life as a woman. I have devoted myself to home and children a majority of the time since my late teens. It is interesting to read you and is close to home. I am in my fifties!!
