Judge My Style: I Tried Wedding Guest Dresses On Today!

Today I visited Zara in Dallas, Texas, to try on wedding guest dresses. Let's just say this was a very interesting try-on day, to say the least. :) 

 As much as I love a good thrift snooping day of finding two-dollar clothes to wear for parties and events. I get more excited when I can find a good sale at the retail store. Today

 I am babbling all about trying on wedding dresses from the clearance racks of Zara. But, I wasn't expecting my body to have changed this much in the last few weeks.

Here's the deal I am going to be at a wedding that requires me to find a purple dress. My shopping journey started at the second-hand store, but I had absolutely no luck.

So, now I have no choice but to hit up the sales racks at my local retail shops. Oh, but here is where the challenge has begun. Since I can not find a purple dress as of yet. I decided to look for a wedding guest dress instead. You know that outfit that is needed for when the ceremony is over. 
I am not sure if I can change, but I am going o buy a dress anyways just in case I go to I-Hop for pancakes later that night. :)

 As I strolled through the store, there were sales everywhere, and I was so excited. First, I saw dresses for 45 dollars then I came across some for 17 and 25 dollars. The prices were terrific, so I just knew I would find my size and my style. Since I have never been to a wedding besides my own. It has been difficult for me to find a subtle dress to wear. How do you dress, and what should I really wear that looks appreciated?  By all means, I do not want to find something that looks revealing or fits to tight on my body. Nor do I want to wear something that doesn't fit my everyday style. Oh, and I do not want to wear something that looks crazy for a wedding. 

So, my first dress try-on was a pink dress that fell slightly above the ankles. The detail was incredible, it has long sleeves and a nice big bow tie at the neckline. The fit was perfect as long as I was standing straight up. 

When I sat down, my belly felt constricted, and I looked as if I was drinking lemonade without sugar. :) LOL #truestory

I must mention the dress only came in size Large, so I really had no room to even eat anything at cocktail night.

 Ok, so I tried my luck at a black and white straight line dress. Yes, I thought this was the one because it went on like a leather glove. The problem came when I couldn't zip it all the way up on the side. Can someone insert the (crying) emoji? Also, this dress was in Large only, and I needed an XL for a little breathing room.

 Now, this next look should have never happened. But, since I tried it on, I guess I will share my thoughts and finds. I tried on the cutest black and sheer dress so, I thought it was a dress until I got it on. Turns out, it was a short baby doll dress that barely covered anything for the imagination. I guess that is why I am not showing what's really below this picture. LOL, just know I am laughing at myself right now.

Last but not least, I finally tried on one that was perfect in color and in size, but it had a slit all the way up to my bum. And NO, I was not going to be pulling and tugging at my thighs all night long. The struggle to dress myself for a wedding has been a real struggle. 

Last but not least, I will not say this shopping trip was a fail, but I didn't find what I really wanted. I guess I did not realize how much my body has changed. And I also learned how I dress for my daily life and work at the hair salon is not fashionable for a wedding. Or is it? Should I be myself and wear what I usually would every day?

Well, stay tuned because the journey to find out will continue.

Which one of these outfits would you wear? 

Until Next Time See Ya In A Bit!
