This weekend I am headed to LA for not one but two Red Carpet movie premieres, for Thor: The Dark World and Delivery Man!Â Of course that means I need to dress up, and finding the perfect dress has been quite an undertaking. I mostly wear jeans and t-shirts, and wear a cocktail dress once a year, in December for the Christmas party at my husbandâ€™s company.Â It seems like a trip to LA calls for a new dress or two, but I need help choosing which ones to wear this weekend!
I set out shopping with my style consultants, my 17 and 20 year old daughters.Â We found this red wrap dress at Macyâ€™s, and liked the way it looked, especially paired with a sparkly shawl.
I thought I was all set, until I found out about the 2nd Red Carpet premiere last week!Â I checked my closet, but I didnâ€™t find any dresses that I really loved. So my daughters and I set out shopping again last weekend, and this time my Mom joined us for a big family adventure.
I must have tried on 25 dresses, and it was so hard to pick! This satin turquoise dress was one I loved.Â Unfortunately it was a little too tight, so I ended up ordering it in a larger size, and have to wait and hope it is delivered on Friday like it is supposed to be.
I decided I needed a backup, just in case the blue dress doesnâ€™t come or doesnâ€™t fit well.Â So I ended up with this black and gold dress.
But now I donâ€™t know which ones to wear for the premieres, because I like all three dresses!Â For accessories I have a classic black Dansko pumps, a sequined shawl, and two dressy clutches, one in gold and one in black.Â I have lots of jewelry so I shouldnâ€™t have any problem picking pieces for the dresses.
So which dresses should I wear?Â Please let me know what you like and help me make a decision so I can start packing!Â And don’t forget to follow the hashtags #ThorDarkWorldEvent and #DeliveryManEvent for all the details on my trip.
