Help Me Pick A Dress To Wear!

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on July 10, 2009

Sometimes, having this website is truly awesome. It’s like having a bunch of my girlfriends over for a girl’s night at times!

Tonight, I thought I would take advantage of the plethora of fabulous fashionistas who read this blog, and ask for your girl-to-girl advice!

Help me decide what dress to wear to the wedding tomorrow!

The only rule: I am not going to tell you name brands! I don’t want that to influence your decision at all. Tomorrow morning, I will be revealing the brands of all the dresses.

The contenders in no particular order:



With no flash so you can see the detailing:

For my hair style, I am probably going to curl it.

Leave a comment below and let me know your top 2 dresses!

Dress number two for sure! It really flatters your figure best, imo, and the color looks fab with your skin tone!


Rachel July 10, 2009 at 6:25 pm

Totally dress number two! It’s super flattering, unique, and a fun summer color. My second choice would be dress number one, but since it’s a summer wedding I’d wear color!


Amie July 10, 2009 at 6:26 pm

I love the teal one and the pink one. The pink one got my vote because of the’s fabulous!


Julie July 10, 2009 at 6:28 pm

I don’t like seeing black on women at weddings, so I would go with one of the colorful ones!


Danielle C. July 10, 2009 at 6:28 pm

Dress number two is my fave, the color is great on you and flatters your figure the most. Dress number three would be the backup, you look fabulous in pink.

If it was winter time I’d say go black, but it’s Summer! Enjoy those summery colors.


MarathonVal July 10, 2009 at 6:28 pm

I like the blue and pink ones best – I didn’t vote since I can’t decide!


Jess July 10, 2009 at 6:30 pm

I like dress one and the pink one! I would go with the pink though!


elizabeth July 10, 2009 at 6:32 pm

Lookit your popeye muscles in your calves! Dang girl! Those are some incline-walking legs!

Dress # 2 is my fav! Dress # 1 is my second fav. Love the shoes!


Shelby July 10, 2009 at 6:34 pm

The teal one for sure!!!


Leah July 10, 2009 at 6:39 pm

I like the hot pink one the best but if it is a more formal wedding, the first one. You are one hot little number!


Jessica July 10, 2009 at 6:40 pm

The blue dress is my fave!!!! The blue, the blue, the blue……it’s so adorable!


leslie July 10, 2009 at 6:41 pm

PINK makes the boys WINK!

Thats why I picked pink, but they all look fabulous on you!


nicole- chasing blue July 10, 2009 at 6:42 pm

I like the pink one because I like pink but that blue one is too cute for words. Actually it had me at pockets!


Jessica July 10, 2009 at 6:43 pm

2’s my fave but 4’s nice too.


Alexandra July 10, 2009 at 6:43 pm

First choice: Dress #2 – Awesome color and super flattering.
Second choice: Dress #3


aisha July 10, 2009 at 6:53 pm

The blue dress, it is bright and complements your skin colour and is so bright and pretty on you. The black ones are pretty but they don’t look as bright and pretty as the blue ones. My second favourite is the pink one, but it is still not as pretty as the blue one. Sorry for a very long ramble.


Erin July 10, 2009 at 6:55 pm

NUMBER 2 !! the blue one :) 2nd choice would be pink. but the blue one is ahead by a mile :D


andrea. July 10, 2009 at 7:05 pm

The blue one is super foxy on you, and is definitely my fave of the bunch, but it doesn’t seem wedding-appropriate to me? I guess it depends on the fabric (can’t really tell from the picture) and also how formal the wedding is… My pick is definitely #1 though, it seems the classiest.


SweetKaroline July 10, 2009 at 7:13 pm

i like the blue dress, the color is great on you and it’s a great cut. but in the end i voted for the first black dress because the blue dress was a little too short.



Lauren July 10, 2009 at 7:15 pm

Dress #2 looks gorgeous! I vote for #2! :)


Katherine July 10, 2009 at 7:16 pm

#3 or #1, in order of preference.


Jen July 10, 2009 at 7:23 pm

I love the teal dress…great colour for summer, plus, pockets in dresses are fun! With a great figure like yours and that gorgeous skin, you’ll be stunning!


name July 10, 2009 at 7:23 pm

Number 2, or 1..


Eri July 10, 2009 at 7:28 pm

I love the blue color on you, but I also like the back of the pink dress. The blue dress just doesnt look as dressy as the others & I know you like to show off your back. So my vote is for the third one.

But, you’ll look great in any of them because no matter what youre wearing-you just seem to GLOWW.:]

& the shoes= <3


Kayzilla July 10, 2009 at 7:29 pm

I personally like the first one the best.. If only you had it in that pretty teal color like dress number two. :(


Amanda July 10, 2009 at 7:29 pm

Love the teal one! Personally, I don’t like wearing black to weddings and I think that you look the most comfortable (and cute!) in that one!


lesley July 10, 2009 at 7:29 pm

I definitely say number one or number two … and if you’re feeling more “fun” number two : ) But they all look great!


*Andrea* July 10, 2009 at 7:30 pm

i love love love the first one! classy and it fits you perfectly. black is always pretty at a weddding for guests, in my humble opinion


J July 10, 2009 at 7:31 pm

You look beautiful in all of them, HOWEVER, the teal one is too casual for a wedding (even though it’s my fav), the pink one is cute but then you might uthe risk of wearing the same color as the bridesmaids. Either black one is perfect, I usually wear a LBD to weddings so as not to show up the bride!


Heather @ Health, Happiness, and Hope July 10, 2009 at 7:31 pm

I would definitely say the teal. Summer wedding mean color and fun, not dark and dreary (black). And the pink might be a bit too bright for a wedding. Honestly, I love them all, but go with the TEAL!!! :)



Brynn July 10, 2009 at 7:46 pm

Teal! I like the zipper.


MMT July 10, 2009 at 7:53 pm

I only loooove #1. It’s hot! And look at your awesome calf muscles!!! :D


Jennifer July 10, 2009 at 8:02 pm

#1 is my fav (and you look great in all of them so no wrong choices!)


Brandi C July 10, 2009 at 8:03 pm

Dress Number 2 Makes You Look Like A GODDESS! You HAVE TO WEAR DRESS NUMBER 2! Trust ME ANGIE :)
(You look amazing in All 4, but words can’t do #2 justice!)


amber July 10, 2009 at 8:15 pm

Number two no doubt hands down wayy stylish fits you perfect, and flatters perfect.


brandi July 10, 2009 at 8:29 pm

#2, but I have a thing for pockets :)


leslie July 10, 2009 at 8:30 pm

number two! it looks gorgeous on you, and i love the exposed zipper in the back. wear it with a flashy bracelet!


Sarah July 10, 2009 at 8:30 pm

I love the pink one and the teal one, but I had to vote for the pink because I love the back on it and I’m not crazy about the pockets on the teal one. I don’t know why, but pockets on dresses are just odd to me.


Cath July 10, 2009 at 8:33 pm

Maybe I’m old-fashioned/conservative, but I think dresses #2, 3, and 4 are on the short side for attending a wedding. I’m not a fan of black at a wedding, but #1 would be my pick.


VeggieGirl July 10, 2009 at 8:36 pm

DRESS #1!!!


[email protected] July 10, 2009 at 8:37 pm

I love #’s 1 and 3. But you look gorgeous in all of them!


Milca July 10, 2009 at 8:37 pm

I love them all but I think that the first black one is perfect for the event. The second teal one looks a little to casual, same as the others. but… be careful you’ll probably look prettier than the bride!!! hahaha JK!!


Jess July 10, 2009 at 8:39 pm

I personally LOVE the second. You look gorgeous in them all though!
<3 jess


Milca July 10, 2009 at 8:40 pm

Ohhh and my fiancée says you should wear #3, the pink one!! lol


Bridget July 10, 2009 at 9:12 pm

I love dress #2. The colour is beautiful and summery and the shape is very flattering. Regardless of what you pick, they are all gorgeous dresses!


Krista July 10, 2009 at 9:13 pm

The teal one is my top pick and the pink is second. I like that they’re bright and cheerful…besides, everyone wears black!!


courtney July 10, 2009 at 9:14 pm

I LOVE the teal or the pink, but if it is an evening wedding I’d go with one of the two black. All of them look gorgeous though, probably because they are on a beautiful model :) Have fun, you’ll look hot no matter what!


Amy July 10, 2009 at 9:30 pm

I like #1! Black is always classy, plus it’s long enough to be appropriate for a wedding. The jewelry looks very nice with it, too.


Angela (Oh She Glows) July 10, 2009 at 9:33 pm

I made my decision…Eric and I actually agreed this time! lol =) I think Ive made the right choice!


lisa July 10, 2009 at 9:37 pm

I’m suprised nobody asked this already but it totally depends on what time the wedding is and where (ie indoor or outdoor)!


Brandi C July 10, 2009 at 9:37 pm

It BETTER be #2! Don’t lol, I’m SERIOUS!
jk, lol.


Jen July 10, 2009 at 9:41 pm



coley July 10, 2009 at 9:50 pm

Dress #3! It’s bright and summery! I like #2, but I think its too casual, and the other two are black, so I’d go for #3.


Mad July 10, 2009 at 9:52 pm

the teal is the most flattering (#2)…for sure! though you look lovely in all…


TorontoGirloutWest July 10, 2009 at 9:57 pm

The first two are the best by far!!!!!!!! :)


Mrs. Myers @ Eat Move Write July 10, 2009 at 10:08 pm

I love the first one, personally. But dress 2 looks FANTASTIC on your bod. Plus, the color is great on you. Beautiful!


Angela July 10, 2009 at 10:19 pm

Angela-Number 1 is really the only appropriate choice for a wedding. The others are cute and look great on you but are a little too short and too casual for a wedding. Have fun!!


lucy July 10, 2009 at 10:24 pm

i’ve been reading the blog for a long time now ( first comment) and i thought i should just say YOU LOOK BEAUTIFUL IN THEM ALL :)

I Know a lot of people voted for dress2 but it seems a bit casual for a wedding, although its a really good one for a girls night out.


Courtney July 10, 2009 at 10:26 pm

YESSSSSSSSSSSS!!!! Dress number two is winnnning!!!! YOU LOOOK HOTTTT! :D


Courtney July 10, 2009 at 10:26 pm

Um, sorry, all look lovely. You look lovely and SMOKIN’ in Dress TWO :D


ND July 10, 2009 at 10:28 pm

3 then 2


Courtney July 10, 2009 at 10:29 pm

WHY SHOULD YOU WEAR BLACK??? Why can’t you, too, GLOW?! You’re not in a white wedding dress! Everyone know’s WHO the bride is – you’re allowed your fun during a summer event, too! Look how hard you’ve worked for that body! And just because you HAVE a great body – don’t drape it in black :(

If not this event – YOU NEED TO WEAR #2. SOON. :)


haya (living and learning) July 10, 2009 at 10:32 pm

i have to agree with angela above. only #1 seems appropriately fancy for a wedding, unless it’s a super casual wedding. i find it’s better to be a little over dressed than underdressed.


Tammy (Defining Wellness) July 10, 2009 at 10:42 pm

I know what you mean about blogging feeling like you have all your girlfriends over! It’s such a nice feeling and such a supportive community! I like the teal dress and the pink dress. That teal dress is really unique though — and very, very pretty!


Kathy July 10, 2009 at 11:02 pm

The blue one!!! The color just really suits you :)


Jennie July 10, 2009 at 11:26 pm

Dress number 1 is my favorite. It’s a classic The other 3 are too casual, IMO.


Rebecca July 10, 2009 at 11:50 pm

I vote for the pink and the blue ones!!


[email protected] July 10, 2009 at 11:54 pm

This is fun… :) All the dresses look great on you! I voted for Dress #1 because it seemed most “wedding appropriate”.


Rebeca July 11, 2009 at 12:51 am

2+3 but really with those shoes no one’s going to look at the dress (maybe that’s just coming from me- the shoe obsessed)


Kath July 11, 2009 at 1:05 am

AH i spent ALL night legit looking for a blue or teal dress aaaaand no wonder i couldn’t find it, you’re wearing it! that would’ve been perfect for the baby shower i’m going to tomorrow :) sooo i’m telling ya now i voted for the teal dress for you so i can live vicariously through you hahaha!


Orla July 11, 2009 at 3:57 am

The teal is the most flattering, but the cut is more casusal. If it’s dressy enough for the wedding you should definitely wear it :) After the teal, I’d say the pink one as the black ones are washing you out a little.


Leah @ Simply Fabulous July 11, 2009 at 4:36 am

Definitely #3… it’s summer.. go for something with colour. You can wear black anytime!

#2 is my second choice.


Lola July 11, 2009 at 6:24 am

#2 is so flattering and a perfect summer dress. Dress #3 is a nice color on you, as well, but I don’t like the fit/style quite as much as #2. Have fun!!!


Christina July 11, 2009 at 9:18 am

Dress number 2!


Shannon (The Daily Balance) July 11, 2009 at 10:02 am



Karen July 11, 2009 at 10:15 am

Dress #2 for sure. It’s by far the most flattering, both for your figure and your skin tone. The other three dresses have bunching around the waist that isn’t quite as flattering.


Madelin @ What is for breakfast? July 11, 2009 at 10:54 am

Dress No. 2, shows off your legs and georgeous shoes :)
