Today, I Need Your Help


Next weekend, we will be attending our FIRST Military Ball, and I have nothing to wear. This town has the most hideous dresses/nothing in my size, and now that I realize this, it is too late to order something.

If I had time, I would order this:



But since I think that would be overdoing it for our Unit and it's not an option, these are my choices:

This Kenneth Cole.

This BCBG.
The color pops more than this picture, but I'm not entirely sure it fits.

This J.Crew dress.
I would pair it with some Vintage Jewelry and/or possible add a belt of some sort.



To all my Military wives...Could any of these be appropriate?

There is a slight chance that my friend has two dresses that might work, but I'm trying to prepare for worst case scenario. Obviously, I nee HELP!

And just to end on a good note, I love this pic:

Yep...he loves me ;) photo 22132_602438666255_1186292_n.jpg

Red nails and wine in my hand?
So out of the ordinary.

I think the red one would look gorgeous with some cute shoes, and maybe just the right necklace?

Hi there, I have been reading your blog for about 4 months but I've never commented! Try renttherunway.com, you could very possibly order it and have it by next weekend. You can order 2 sizes for the price of one dress also! I love that website!! I've been to quite a few military events as my husband is in the Navy. If it's an actual ball, my recommendation would be to get something long, especially with it being winter! :) If it's like a holiday party, then go with short!

I like the red!

Morgan Neal said...

Black or red. But honestly red is more appropriate. Don't worry you'll be probably the most decent one there. Alot of balls I've been to the "joes" all have strippers for dates & you can image when comes walking in with a so called dress one. Lol. Just saying.

Rebecca said...

I like the red!

Jennifer said...

I like the red one the most. It looks more ball-like.

Rachel said...

I would go with the red!

Jenn said...

I think the red one is amazing!!

Heather said...

OMG that first dress is absolutely amazing!

That red dress is stunning with some accessories. I think it would be a jaw dropper. So pretty!

Ashley Garden said...

RED :) It's classy and sexy. Have a blast!

Helene said...

i sincerely love them all. that red is pretty hot though!!!

Jen said...

The red is absolutely gorgeous!! :)

Ashley @ LocalPostcards said...

They're all great- but I like the red the best!

Pamela said...

Umm any of them because you will look gorgeous in anything you would wear!!

Kelly said...

I love both the black and the red one and I think either would be appropriate for a military ball. Lord knows, some girls go all out prom, so I think a classic look works best!

If you are stressing about something to wear though, you should check out Rent the Runway!! They will overnight your dress to you and you get to wear a beautiful designer dress for a very reasonable price. They are my go to for Navy balls, weddings, etc. Also, if you use this link, you can get $20 off your first rental :)

Janna, all are pretty and I know they will all look fabulous. I'm kind of a fan of the red dress with a smokey eye and glossed lip. You can play with the heels.

The black dress you can accessorize more "freely." But the red dress has this classic look that I think would accompany your man in uniform best.

Can't wait to see what worked out!

Rach @ This Italian Family said...

I vote red! :)

Katy said...

The red J. Crew is my favorite! I think that would be perfect with some jewelry to dress it up along with a fabulous pair of heels. But you will look beautiful no matter what you wear :) And what a fun date night for you and the hubs!

Cece said...

Eeek! Fashion Emergency. The red J crew looks very appropriate. It seems that most balls are more formal not that you won't ever see cocktail length dresses at them but I'd say the length on the red one and the fit just seems more formal and fitting for the ball. You will look amazing in whatever you decide.

Erin said...

Will I'm not a military wife but I say the red one!

Kenzie Smith said...

I'm torn between the black dress and the red dress!

Nicole said...

I'm not a military wife, but I like the red :)

emi said...

wear the first one!

All At Once said...

wear the first one!

Nicole said...

This might be corny, but when my husband and I go out, we always make sure what we're wearing either matches or doesn't clash for pictures. So...wear what looks best with Will's uniform that he'll be wearing.

And just for kicks...I think the red would be more appropriate for a ball.

Elizabeth @The Better Belle Project said...

LOVE the red jcrew dress!

Kathryn B said...

I would go with the red J.Crew dress. It's classy yet sassy which is what you want. :)

Kelly { Messy.Dirty.Hair.} said...

Seriously I don't think I could love you more. Thank you so much again for linking up!!! You are seriously the best gf blogger ever!! Well you would look amazing in anything you wear but the blac & red are both fabulous! Red could be good too since Valentines Day is near! Also I was reading the comments above & someone suggested the site rent the runway - my bff her boyfriend is in military too & that's where she gets all her dresses for these events! It's a really cool site! And it is funny to see you w red polish & wine!! Haha!! Happy Friday lover!!!!

Kim said...

The red one is pretty and classic. A vintage vibe definitely suits it. Maybe a thin belt and some patent heels? I hope you have fun! :)

cynthia said...

A few of my co-workers are military wives and I'd say the red one would be awesome based on pics I have seen form their "balls"! There is always a lot of black but I know the red would look so good on you, you would not blend in to the sea of "little black dresses", and it's totally appropriate. :)

Gina Gao said...

I would choose the red one, but all of these are amazing!

Lindsey Leitner said...

Too bad you don't have time to order that first dress it is absolutely stunning!

I liked the Kenneth Cole dress but they all looked cute!

Thank you so much for linking up fr Fearless Fashion Fridays!

The Little Flapper said...

I think you would look great in all of them. But I really love the second BCBG one. I could see you looking gorgeous as usual in it, with some stunning vintage jewelry.

I also second renttherunaway.com I've heard great things. Hope you share some pictures from your military ball, sure you'll be the prettiest one there!

Whitney said...

Out of those, definitely the red!

Girls Love Fried Pickles said...

I say go sexy or stay home! It's both of your nights to shine.

Beth W said...

The red J. Crew is sexy AND classy....I say, go with that.
