Evening Dress

We do not normally attend a lot of formal social functions but we have been invited to a garden party in about 10 days time. It is connected to my husband's work and it is important that we attend. I am sure that I will feel a little uncomfortable as I am not that good at mixing with people that I know and engaging in conversation. I also have to avoid alcohol whenever possible due to a chemical imbalance in my blood.

Anyway, I have been searching for an outfit and have two possibilities. Firstly this yellow dress with a black belt. It has been in my wardrobe for rather a long time. It was a charity shop find but I can't remember how much it cost. Probably no more than £5.00.
An alternative would be this polkadot dress I bought this week. Again it has a belt detail and a sort of pleats which adds interest. It cost me £5.50. This dress is longer and I am slightly concerned that it may cause me to trip as I am not used to wearing dresses of this length.

Which would you choose?

  1. THe polka dot one is my favourite, but if you feel more comfortable in the yellow one then go with that one. It's pretty too :) It's more important you are happy and comfortable and confident with what you are wearing, then you will have more fun at the party :)

    Hope you are having a lovely weekend :)

  2. I would go a yellow number, I love vibrant colours and its shape appeals to me. I think in order to look good, one should be confident in what she is wearing

  6. These are both beautiful dresses and would look perfect at a garden party. I adore the polka dot one, but nothing is worse than not feeling comfortable in what you are wearing. Thanks for linking up with Fabulous Friday!
