Bippity Boppity Boo -- Three Choices For You

I cannot imagine how sick you are of dressing room pics, but alas I cannot help it. I need you. I can make a decision on my own. I can really. Kinda. Don't you think? But let's face it...you all know so much more than me. I listened about the wedding dress and it was a hit...I listened about the interview outfit, and it went well...so now can you help me decide what to wear to the ball?

I have an Air Force ball to attend next week. It is semi-formal. Help me choose between these three. I actually already bought one, but I will totally take it back if you tell me to. Cause I listen to you my wise young grasshoppers.

Option 1 -- Japanese Flower Strapless
I have no clue why I call it Japanese Flower Strapless, but I can cause it is my blog. Unless you think I shouldn't...than I won't.
I think it looks a little too funky and young for an Air Force Ball. Maybe more wedding or night caps. Although I have NEVER been out for Night Caps....I do not really even know what they are. Is it a late night drink? But in a bar? And is it with business peeps? Oh I need so much help.
Option 2 -- Seashell Scalloped Strapless
The top looks like a mermaid to me. Which caused me to sing

Ah Ah Ah Ah ...Ah Ah Ah Ah.. Ah Ah Ah Ah Ah Ah Ah Ah A Ah Ah Ahhhhhhhh. Look at this stuff. Isn't it neat? Wouldn't you think my collections complete? Wouldn't you think I'm, the girl..the girl who has everything?
Then the sales lady came in and told me to stuff a sock in it.
I wept. But here it is with a sequin shawl thingy....
I do not know how I feel about this.

Option 3 - Won't You Take Me To Funky Town I love love love this.
I wanna marry it and have little free-love flower-child babies.
But is it Ball material? With tall black spikey boots? But I would do strappy black heels for the ball...... Oh pleeeeeeease???

So...

#1 -- Japanese Flower Strapless
#2 -- Seashell Scalloped Strapless (let me know with or without the shawl)
#3 -- Won't You Take Me To Funky Town

Help me out yet once again. Am I annoying you? Am I? Am I? Huh? Seriously? Am I?

Best bet is always the "little black dress"... not sure about the shawl though-almost looks grandmotherly :( The "funky town" dress is a GREAT dress BUT not quite dressy enough for the ball - again these are just my opinions.. Have a great time!!

Kimberly said...

I'm one of Feather's friends in Oklahoma. I saw a link to your blog on her page and you crack me up. Anyways, since you don't know me from Eve, I know you are waiting anxiously for my opinion on your dress...right? I would vote for the Seashell Scalloped Strapless with the shaw. I think it looks classy and dressy enough for the ball. Just my opinion.

The Kelso-Winter Family said...

buy the funky town one and send it to me in a size 8. then i vote for the one with the print cause it has more interest than the plain black. you are not a plain black kinda girl. i love dressing room pics..go shop some more before you buy. AND check out this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D2Ug9toZ1Bw&feature=related - it's called DIY2 Halloween Costume
for your halloween costume IF you want to go as a jellyfish. I KNOW you could make it better than the one they show.. pretty funny adult costumes..you'll have to ignore lisa rinna as paris hilton. it's gross.

Paige said...

Seashell frock no shawl--trust me on this. I am the guru of this sort of dressing. Wear the shawl there if you must, but ditch it immediately.

The dress is ideal

Jenn said...

I vote anything that has to do with Little Mermaid.

Seriously though, the Seashell dress. No shawl. Jazz it up with some awesome accessories and fabulous shoes. And we all know you have fabulous shoes.

The third dress IS way cute, but not dressy enough, in my opinion, for the ball.

Meaghan said...

Love the second black dress! And..your little one is too cute :)

Christy said...

Alas, I, once again, cannot make up my mind. I love all 3. But if someone were twisting my arm and yelling at me to choose one, I would go with #2. Fabulous!

CindyDianne said...

#2, no shawl!

Beki said...

I love #3 I would go with that and 2 is gorgeous too. LOVE THEM!!

J. Leigh Designz said...

Call me the odd ball I LOVE #1!!! I think you rock in it. #3 is cute but not dressy enough by far. #2, won't everyone else be wearing a simple black dress, don't you want to stand out just a bit?

k8mc said...

#2 no shawl!! And can you send me one too?! I have no time to shop anymore...

Megan said...

I vote #2! No shawl, and with a fabulous metallic shoe! All three are adora-bella though! I have serious dress shopping envy right now.

Hope4Grace said...

OMG, Buy funky town......cause I personally never wore my other more appropriate "ball" dresses anywhere, but funky town could be fun to play dress up ;), not to mention it is HOT.

Sarah said...

I love #1 - it's will stand out, in a good way. I like 2 but with out the shawl, and everyone has a little black dress. Love 3 but wrong event. I say go with number 1. But which one did you feel the most comfortable in. That's your answer. Have fun you'll look great no matter what you choose.

Holli said...

#2 hands down! I love it.

Becky :) said...

I like them all. I say buy them all and then find places to wear the others.
The 2nd one for the ball would be great. Without the shawl.

Lindsay said...

Definitely the Seashell with the shawl! Classic, gorgeous and sassy. Loves it!!
I do love the Funky though, maybe you need to get that one too, just in case the right party arises :)

Kristin said...

#2 no shawl it reminds me of something my mother would wear.

Cindy said...

I'm votin for number one. Everyone will be wearing a black dress. But then I always do everything a bit different. BTW I'm in love with that last dress. I'd probably just ditch the others and wear it. But I'm an oddball.
I just followed a link from another blog and you are hilarous and I too love singing mermaid songs...oh you didn't say you loved to sing mermaid songs? Nevermind.

Adrenalynn said...

I love them all!! But I would totally go for #2, but I'd ditch the shawl once I got there. The dress has great detail in the bodice, so no need for a fancy print! Although? The fancy print one is SO cool. And you rock all 3!

Tracie said...

I love love love Funky Town on you, it's just adorable, BUT for the ball I think it should be Seashell Ariel with the shall.

MauritaMason said...

I know it's probably too late, but Seashell dress, with or without shawl

Brandy said...

I vote #2, without the shawl, but take it, just incase!

Lo said...

(i went to a ton of marine corps balls in my day. er. teenage years. whatever.)

#2 with the shawl. Classy and feminine. #3 is to funky for a ball and #1 I like as well.

Linda said...

Definately buy Funky Town! It's SO you! but not "Ball". For the Ball I choose Seashell Scalloped Strapless WITH shawl thingy. I don't think it looks Grandmotherly unless you plan to tie it in front.

The Pumpkin Pink Cottage said...

I like number one, personally, 3 is awesome but I don't think it would fly for the Ball, We have our Marine Corps Ball coming next month, I'm not going this year, but if if were me I'd choose one, I like it alot..hugs, lisa

#1

Tammy H. said...

I love #1. It's not your basic black dress that everyone will have on!

brainella said...

Number 1 or 3. Love 3. 1 seems more classic. 3 is fun.

misty said...

Hey girl! Seashell w/ no shawl. The shawl throws it off. Have fun!

Anonymous said...

I love, love, love #1! I am so surprised everyone is picking #2 over it. Wow!

I love #3 too, but because I can't see it in person, not sure if it is dressy enough. If you looked at it in the same section of the store as #1 & 2, I am sure it is appropriate.

AF wife to AF wife, I LOVE the Japanese flower Strapless. I think it would be great for the AF Ball. Perfect. If you go with the Ariel dress, lose the shawl, it makes you look old, and you are definitely NOT OLD! And you are seriously rockin' the funky town dress, but probably not a good one for the AF Ball.

Lesa said...

#2 is my opinion for the Ball,
but I love #3 but not for that...

Sara Coleman said...

My vote is for the #2 -- Seashell Scalloped Strapless (with the shawl)

(came over from Feather's Blogg)

Lo said...

Option 2 - Nix the shawl - ***BUT MOST IMPORTANT**** Make SURE you GET that 3rd option!!!! That is too die for and it will fit in somewhere! And you will regret the day you let that one get away!

Marchelle said...

ariel,

i like them all. how do you make me choose? although i do love me some funky town, it doesn't scream ball to me. but i agree with the K-Dub Fam, you are not a plain black dress kinda girl. therefore, my choice is japanese flower print.

thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

The Wife said...

I say #1!!

Dana Jones said...

#2 with the shawl, but get number 3 too, cause it is cute and you are going to find a perfect place to wear it!

Anonymous said...

how about #1 with the shawl? or does the shawl only come with #2. if it's sold seperately then pick #1 -it's just not so plain as the sea shell scalloped one.

Anonymous said...

#2 no shawl

2 votes here, my daughter and I

This is tough...The one with the shawl made me gasp, it is sooo stunning on you. Maybe too formal?
the Japanese dress is very U! Young and fresh and fancy free. It says I am getting a FABULOUS job offer Weds but I WILL NOT dress corporate outside of work!
Make sure the "girls" are properly hoisted and then...set sail! Oh, that would be Navy, wouldn't it...
