So I'm going to a party at a pretty fancypants restaurant in a couple of weeks and I've ordered this dress:

Ladies:
The model in the picture has on flats but I think I should wear heels. Thoughts?
The zipper is gold. Can I still wear silver jewelry?
Yes.

It looks very nice. Do you have a pashima, mantilla or something similar in case the air conditioning is set cool?

The description says the zipper is exposed. I would wear heels. The model is listed as being 5'10. If she were in heels for the picture the proportions would not be right.

Have you bought BR before? From their website? Is it accurate?

Yes, the zipper is exposed but in the back. So if I wore silver jewelry, the jewelry and the zipper wouldn't be visible to the same person at the same time - ha!

I have much more silver than gold, and I want to wear my diamonds, which are set in silver (might be white gold, I don't remember... the point is, they're silver-colored).

I have a black pashmina, a black & white patterned scarf, and a purple scarf. The scarves are both those gauzy ones, know what I mean? It's summer in Florida though; I'll look ridiculous if I bring a wrap or anything. I'll have my adrenaline to keep me warm. ;)

Heels would be cute; some kind of strappy sandal perhaps...
I couldn't tell from the photo, but I'm guessing the zipper is exposed. I'm kinda weird about the silver and gold thing, so I'd probably feel more comfortable with my jewelry matching the zipper.
I have three pairs of black strappy heels (one with gold buckles, one with silver buckles, one with no buckles - the last pair are probably too casual). I'm planning on bringing them to work for an in-person vote.

I so wish the zipper was black/hidden on the dress. Oh well.

I would wear the silver jewelry, the silver buckled strappy heels, silver earrings and necklace and then a nod to the zipper, I'd find bangles that had 2 silver and 1 gold together.

If you lived closer I'd loan you some.:)

And yes, I'm worrying about an outfit that I'm going to wear two weeks and one day from today. That's just how I roll.

A great response to a bathroom related post from passiveaggressivenotes.com :

A few years back, I walked into the bathroom immediately after coworker “B” left… and found a pee-splattered toilet seat. I quietly approached him afterward, and (at the time, mostly as a joke) told him that if he ever did it again, I’d call him out on it. He apologized, and I thought that was the end of it.
Until a few weeks later, that is… when the exact same thing happened. So I asked him, initially in a quiet voice,“B? Remember what I said the last time about calling you out if you didn’t STOP PEEING ON THE TOILET SEAT?” He looked mortified, and the coworkers in the area laughed.
Epic bonus points to another coworker: I didn’t find out about this until later, but after I walked away he started telling the coworker next to him (one of his best friends) that I’d hurt his feelings and he thought it was unfair that a supervisor would treat him that way. She told him “Well, maybe you should do something about it.”
“Like what, complain to management?”
“No, I think you should STOP PEEING ON THE TOILET SEAT.”

I much prefer a lengthy discussion on this little black dress and potential accessories over arguing over Zimmerman!

Agree!

I had fun last night order stuff from the Spiegel Outlet. I got myself a few things and my sisters a couple of things. Sweaters were $9. They had a $165 dress for $14. Now, it wasn't my size and of course it was soooooooo cute. But who wears a size 2? I wish I did. I don't. But my sister does! I grabbed that for her.:)

You never struck me as someone who would have an adrenaline rush just for a fancy schmancy restaurant. What's the occasion?
