    Help I Need Style Help!

    Advertisements
    DH is coming home on R&R soon and I want to try a new style. I was thinking of buying a new dress, purse, shoes, and accessories. Can you ladies tell me what you think of these outfits and maybe suggest some purses (I was thinking pink to match the dress), and accessories? I have some black shoes that I want to wear. Especially where I can get them from. Thanks!

    i like the swimsuit a lot but the dress i am not a big fan since it looks more like a office outfit to wear.

    the suit is super cute. the dress does look like office wear, but it would depend what you guys were doing. i would do a blackpurse unless you find an exact pink to match?

    Okay, then what would you ladies suggest for a night out with DH? Let's say, dinner, a movie, dancing.

    How about a more flowy dress that's a little casual but also comfortable? since you will be sitting at dinner and the movies but then for dancing youll have a cute flowy dress to dance around in...

    this what i would wear...you dont have to do this but just a little suggestion...

    OP - i like the dress in the OP for you. i think its fitting. what kind of style were you going for? i'm getting the vibe that you want something kind of dressy and nice, that makes you feel sexy - but in more of a sophisticated way than an uber trendy way, yeah?

    if you go with the first dress - i would do black heels for sure. something sexy, i'd probably look for a cute patent pump, or something with a tall stiletto heel and a round toe. i am really feeling the shininess of patent though.

    i'd probably do a black clutch, and try to find one in patent also. i got one from Aldo for about $15 that i LOVE and has worked for sooo many occasions. or, just to mix it up, i'd get a small clutch in a totally different bright jewel tone, just to be bold.

    i'd do some classic, subtle accessories, like stud earrings and maybe a matching bracelet. i'd do yellow gold or maybe pearl.

    tell me more about what kind of style change you're looking for, and i bet we can keep thinking of options and ideas.

    Honestly, I really do love the dress that I picked and I'll post a pic of the shoes that I have that I want to wear.

    I don't know how to describe the way I want to look. You said everything perfectly. If you have ever seen pics of Mrs. Andy, I want style like that. Oh, and like you. Gah, I feel so embarrassed saying these things. I'm a jeans and t-shirt kinda girl. I usually just let my DH talk me into buying something. He usually picks out things that I never would have picked up myself but really like and look good on me, he picked out my shoes.

    don't be embarrassed!! i have often emulated styles i see on other gals, and i have changed my look soooo many times. i think its adorable and i'm flattered.

    i like the picture of the shoes your posted, and i think those will be perfect with the dress! do you have a black purse??

    whenever i have made shifts in my wardrobe... i have started out small. and i buy pieces that mix and match together!! so now that you have a cute dress and those shoes, make your next purchase to build off it. find another dress that goes with the shoes! or maybe a skirt that will match the same shoes and the accessories you'd wear with the dress, and just keep going.

    here are some skirts i like for you:

    i like the high waist line in the dress you picked out, but obviously you don't need every skirt and dress to go up that high!

    i also like the bathing suit you picked up!

    what about dressing up some jeans with heels and a nicer top?
    i LOVE this vest with jeans and heels... you could wear a simple white or black shirt under it, or go more daring a wear a bright solid underneath! http://www.charlotterusse.com/produc...ductId=3686021

    this tank - in black, with jeans and the black heels you already have is great for a date night out to dinner.

    i think its cute that your DH picked out your shoes for you!! aww. my DB loves to shop too, hehe.

    what other stores do you like to shop at? i just kept looking for charlotte russe links since thats the store you had already found.

    OMG! You are awesome! I should pay you to be my stylist! I love the stuff you picked out! I don't have a favorite store. DH just takes me to the places he shops. I started looking at CR because someone else posted some clothes from there.

    Btw, I just bought the dress, the swimsuit, and some lingerie, along with...

    Black Clutch (actually a hardshell wallet)
