What I May Wear: Awards Night! // As promised!

Trial at my awards dinner outfit - any suggestions would be lovely!

I really like this frock and I would like to keep it, but I'm up for negotiation for everything else!

Oh, it's an evening event: should I go for a red lip?

    You look stunning in that dress.A red lip would be extra polished.

  • Angie replied 8 years ago

    Killer Stunning Beautiful from hair to shoe. 

    Where did you get the dress? 

    Bold lip sounds great. 

  • columbine(erin) replied 8 years ago

    Oh yes, you look fab in the dress.

  • DJP replied 8 years ago

    Wow, a very big Yay for the dress! You look sensational and I think a red lippie would be lovely.

  • replied 8 years ago

    Fantastic, that is a great look! A red lip is always a good idea.

  • carter replied 8 years ago

    So good to see you post! Love the dress. Will you wear your hair up or down? A red lippie sounds perfect.

  • Karie replied 8 years ago

    A gorgeous and beautiful dress, and perfect for the occasion. A bold lip, whether red or deep pink to match the dress, would be beautiful.

  • Glory replied 8 years ago

    Stunning in the dress. I like the idea of a bold lip as well.

  • Karin L H replied 8 years ago

    Wow, what a stunning dress! You look amazing!

  • lyn* replied 8 years ago

    Thanks, ladies! I'll go with a red lip and I think I'll just wear my hair down!

    This dress is from Anthropologie a few years ago, I bought it NWT from someone's closet cleanup for a song!

  • kellygirl replied 8 years ago

    Beautiful! Definitely a bold lip :)

  • tulle replied 8 years ago

    Spectacular dress!  I think you're all set.

  • LACeleste replied 8 years ago

    Wowee Lyn!  Looking super gorgeous!

  • donnat replied 8 years ago

    You look fabulous in that dress. A bold lip would be perfect.

  • Jude replied 8 years ago

    What a lucky find that dress was. It looks like it was made for you, wow, wow, wow! Add the red lip and the look is perfection. Have a wonderful evening.

  • Elizabeth P replied 8 years ago

    Gorgeous, Lyn!

  • catgirl replied 8 years ago

    Oh, you look so amazing!  I would do whichever lip is most flattering - hot pink is much better on me than red for some reason.

  • Style Fan replied 8 years ago

    Gorgeous dress.  Looks amazing on you.  I agree with Alaska girl.  Go with a bold lip that flatters you.  That may be red.  I would look awful with red lips.

  • Sal replied 8 years ago

    Wow the dress is stunning! Such a lovely shape And floral!

  • Astrid replied 8 years ago

  • shedev replied 8 years ago

    Great dress. Yes to a bold lip.

  • jackiec replied 8 years ago

    Gorgeous! It's SO great to see and your fab dresses again :)

  • replied 8 years ago

    This outfit is perfect. The dress is beautiful, fits you perfectly and you were absolutely right, the nude shoes look great. It's so perfect, you really don't need to do anything else but if you have a red lipstick, that would be great.
    This dress suits you so well it could've been made with you in mind.

  • Sara L. replied 8 years ago

    Great dress!  I love how the belt accentuates your tiny waist.  I hope you have fun at the dinner.

  • Firecracker (Sharan) replied 8 years ago

    The dress is gorgeous on you, and great shoes with it. I like the idea of red lipstick with it, too. You will be stunning!

  • Susie replied 8 years ago

    So nice to see you and your pretty dresses again!! This one is lovely and red lipstick sounds perfect!

  • Caro in Oz replied 8 years ago

    Beautiful :)

  • Gaylene replied 8 years ago

    It's so nice to see you post again. And that dress is stunning on you.

  • E replied 8 years ago

    Yay! So good to see you again, especially in a stunning dress. I'm sure you'll rock the dinner. :D

  • Aida replied 8 years ago

    Gorgeous! Really like the light shoes with the dress. I agree with Una, any bold lip color that suits you would work nicely (red, orange, pink...) but so  would a soft glossy shade.

  • krishnidoux replied 8 years ago

    Absolutely most lovely! 
    I would not go with a bold color, but a discreet yet effective lip gloss instead.

  • Windchime replied 8 years ago

    So nice to see a post from you! The dress is amazing on you; all eyes will be on you at the awards night!

  • deb replied 8 years ago


  • Kristin L replied 8 years ago

    How pretty! That dress looks great on you. And I vote for the red lip as well.  Have fun!

  • Sveta replied 8 years ago

    Lyn! So nice to have you back even if for short moments!
    You look amazing in the dress and with your hair down.
    I just read your other post (missed it before) - you are one determined young lady! I am proud of you and hope you can reach you goal soon.
    I miss "The Boy" stories... :-)

  • Gigi replied 8 years ago

    So nice to see you again! :)

    I really LOVE this dress on you. The belt is awesome.

    I think this would be great for your awards dinner, and I think a red lip would be suitable too. Good luck! 

  • CocoLion replied 8 years ago

    You have been missed, glad to see you are well and as lovely as ever.

  • lyn67 replied 8 years ago

    Nice to see you, you1ve been missed! Love the frock, it's really special, and bold lips is a good idea! Congrats for the  awards you'll get!:-)

  • Staysfit replied 8 years ago

    Stunning! A red lip would look great!

  • lyn* replied 8 years ago

    UPDATE - Thanks so much for your kind guidance, ladies (as usual) - I picked up the one award that I was really hoping to get, so I am pretty happy with myself. My preceptor made a funny little speech about how I never wore pants - in fact, he's not even sure if I own pants ... I think it's funny how fashion and style choices touch us in ways we don't know! 

    The Boy and I broke up last year around this time. It was a surprise, but thank you for remembering, Sveta. 

    I have so many events this year, I definitely am planning on recycling this dress, so I'll go with a more neutral lip next time! :)
