Dress Me Up!

I am so thankful for a community of fashionable blogger friends.  I know I can count on y'all for fashion inspiration, and now I'm in need of some fashion advice - I need y'all to help me choose my dress!

I'm going to a Gangster Gala put on by the Junior League, and I have no idea what to wear.  I was dead set on this dress, but now I'm having second thoughts.  I'd love to hear y'all's opinions, and there's even a little poll at the bottom you can participate in if you want to!

Gangster Gala Dresses Rent the Runway

Option One - Milly "Take Flight" Dress ($45 Rental) //   This was my original dress pick, and then I backed out at the last minute - I had typed in my credit card info and everything.  I love the feathers, because when do you get the opportunity to wear feathers?!

Option Two - Free People "Loren" Dress ($70 Rental) //  This reminds me of The Great Gatsby with a modern twist.

Option Three - BCBGMAXAZRIA "Chakra" Gown ($85 Rental) //   I love this dress!  It's in November, so the long sleeves and long gown are appropriate.  Doesn't this seem like something you would see in a 1920's movie?  I'm just not in love with the price tag for one night.

Option Four - BCBGMAXAZRIA "Turner" Romper ($35 Rental) //  Instead of dressing like an elegant lady, why not dress like a lady gangster?  I love the price on this and that the top looks like a little blazer.

Option Five - Nanette Lepore "On Off" Shift ($35 Rental) //   I love the classic shift shape of this dress, and I think the beading is a fun touch.  The model is wearing it with long tassel earrings, so for the affordable price of this rental, I totally wouldn't mind renting some jewelry as well.

Moment of Truth - What do y'all think?!

Option One (Feathers)

Option Two (Sparkles)

Option Three (Long Gown)

Option Four (Romper)

Option Five (Shift)

By the way, I'm so happy to be linking up with my friends The Blush Blonde & The Fairy Princess Diaries today for Tutu Tuesday!  Whoop whoop!!

Happy Tuesday, my friends!  Thanks for your help in determining which dress I should wear.  I don't know what I would do without y'all!

Be sure to stop by tomorrow - I'm going to be sharing some details of my rebrand with y'all!

  3. I had to research this "gangster gala" lol. Uggghhhh 1 or 3, 1 or 3?!?!? Voting on it now.

  4. Can't make up my mind between #1 and #2 Both are just so perfect for the Gangster Gala. Have fun, girl.

  5. I voted for option one because I have ALWAYS wanted to wear a feather dress but I also think option 3 would look stunning on you. You're going to have the best time, I'm so jealous, I love formal events! (:

  6. Girl, wear the feathers-like you said, how many times do you actually get to wear feathers?!

  10. I love Option two the best ❤️❤️

  12. I'm in love with them! I love #3 but agree with you on the price tag. #2 is my favorite because it looks bad but elegant at the same time. My second option would be #1 :)

  13. 1 and 3 are my favorites! I've always wanted a feathery dress like #1, so it definitely has my vote!

  14. I voted for the long one! I LOVE IT!!

  15. Option three all the way!!! It is seriously stunning.
