    Black Tie Question

    Advertisements
    So it's not an Army ball, but it's similar. I'm going to a dining out before DB's unit deploys, and they'll all be wearing Class A's. So I have 2 questions..

    1. Would this dress be ok?

    2. How should I do my hair? I have super long curly hair. I know some of it should be up, but all of it? Or just like half up done nice? Share pictures if you have any!!

    TIA

    Black tie event that dress is perfect. Dress it up with some stunning jewelry (can be fake lol) and some fabulous shoes.

    As for your hair, you can do a nice french roll OR you can leave it down. A good option is to look through some magazines and go talk to your sylist and ask for their opinion and see what they think. Than have them do it the night of the event.

    I love the dress

    As a curly girl myself I say let them flow in the back and maybe do a really cute jeweled pin to keep it pulled back in front.

    I think that dress is gorgeous!

    I have curly, thick hair. When it was longer and I went to formal events, I usually twisted most, if not all of it up. I like to leave a few curls free, but it's not a big deal to me.

    You could probably get away with just leaving it down too.

    I'm glad everyone likes the dress as much as I do! I'm going to buy it soon, and hopefully it looks good or else I'll be totally depressed!
