In less than 40 days I will be on a cruise ship on my way to Jamaica, Grand Cayman and Cozumel. I'm just a little bit excited... actually I'm like this:
Because of these SANTAAAA levels of excitement I'm already planning what I will be packing... especially what I will be packing to wear on the two formal nights on the cruise.
Here's the thing... my adult/semi-adult life has an amazing dearth of opportunities to play dress up. I'm not married, I didn't go to prom, and I've never even been a bridesmaid. So when I get to dress up for something I get pretty carried away with the planning.
Now I'm not planning to go Full Dynasty on formal night.
Instead I'm going for a more boho glamour look... we'll call it Champagne and Hippies.
The first formal night outfit is pretty much fait accompli... I'm keeping it simple: Black cocktail dress, black open toed heels, hair up with something sparkly in my hair to vajazzle it up a little (I'm not going to get vajazzled, you guys... I'm talking about the hair on my head... ew).
So I need some opinions on accessories and hair for the second dress.
I'm wearing this:
It's much more of a rust color than the pumpkin orange in this photo. And the beading on the cuffs is gold, not shiny gold... more of a dull finish gold.
I'm wearing black opaque tights and, most likely, these shoes:
|These are from Target, and they were pretty comfortable which is a priority for me. I have a very low tolerance for hurt-y feet.|
|Like this one from Forever 21? $8, you guys!|
Also I'm cheap... very, very cheap.
