    Question Help please

    Advertisements
    Okay well I'm trying to figure out if i have to buy a dress or if any of these are okay to wear to the winter ball.
    A) It is about 6-8 inches below my knees




    B) This one is a good 8-10 inches below my knees




    C)This one is about 2-4 inches below my knees




    Shoes


    My dad says he like A with the gold shoes. What do you think? And are they okay to wear to the winter ball?

    I'm not sure what is appropriate but dress 1 and 2 are so cute. Wear dress 2 if youre going to wear your hair up...wear dress 1 if youre going to wear your hair down.

    IMO full length dresses are the only thing appropriate for balls. Some ppl wear cocktail and tea length dresses but I think full length go better with Dress Blues
    Esp. if it's a winter ball...

    If it is a true ball (black or white tie), I wouldn't wear any of them because that really dictates a floor length gown.

    If it is more of a cocktail event, I think any of them would be appropriate. The third is my least favoriteand I think I liek the second the most.

    If you're it's cocktail style, I'd go with dress two with your hair up and either the silver or gold shoes. If it's not, I definitely think you need a longer dress. I don't think black is bad though. If you're pale, white may wash you out a bit. Black is flattering on everyone.
    TTFN. Ta-ta for now MSOS.
