If I Had Gone, I Mighta Looked Like This:

 Yuk, being sick makes me lose so much time :( I meant for this post to be posted and more relevant last week, but I got hit with sickness. Day late and dollar short is my life story…

So my company hosted the Grammys and there is always some potential for tickets to matriculate. I’m never in the running for this kind of stuff, but I thought I would make it a little fun… If I received a Grammy ticket last minute, what would I wear? No shopping, no nothing but, running to my closet and chosing from there. These are what I came up with:

Maggie London via Nordstrom Rack
heels: Bobbi Blu; necklace: Nordstrom Rack; purse: vintage

It’s comfortable, the color is pretty and the cut works on my body. A classic look with minimal accessories.
Bonus: The bubble skirt has pockets!
BCBG via Nordstrom Rack
heels: DSW (forgot brand); tights: Bare Assets via barenecessities.com; coat & jewelry: H&M; purse: vintage

The color is subtle and the sequins and beads at the neckline are a pretty bit of bling.
It used to be about 3 bands longer and I opted to removed those and make the dress sassier. ( I can't really bend over though, I would have to make sure I never dropped anything...)
Bonus: No undergarments necessary!
JS Collection via It’s A Wrap

heels: Dolce Vita via Dolce Vita store; tights: Bare Assets via barenecessities.com; belt & jewelry: H&M; purse: vintage

A slightly more casual look with a pop of fuchsia - this particular dress fits poorly without a belt of some sort so the black glitter belt adds a lil sumthin sumthin as well as function.
I also removed a couple of shutters on the length to make it more to my liking.
Bonus: No undergarments necessary.

I really don’t know what combination I would chose. It was just fun to play dress up in dresses I haven’t touched in a while J
