Please Be My Fashion Police

posted in: Just Because | 0

This is going to be short and sweet. The Listen To Your Mother St. Louis Show is just 10 days away, and this girl needs to figure out what she will be wearing on stage.

I already have my amazing (and FREE) shoes, compliments of Bronx Diba Shoe Outlet, and I found some equally pop-tastic coral-red jewelry to match (not compliments of Charming Charleys, but cheap enough to be close to free). But I need some help choosing which dress to wear. Here are my four options:

I WOULD keep all of them, but that would probably be financially irresponsible of me. So which dress gets a permanent home in my closet, and a debut on the LTYM stage on May 9th? (*Disclaimer: As I always tell my husband, I am asking for your opinion, but there’s a good chance I won’t take it if it doesn’t match the choice I have already subconsciously made.)

OH, and if you are in St. Louis, not busy on May 9th at 11:00am or 3:00pm, and want to come to the LTYM Show, you can see the winning dress in person. I dragged my kids to the mall with me to shop, so they would appreciate that all their hours of boredom be rewarded by filled seats in the auditorium. Get your tickets here

Now, rock your vote in the comment section! Thanks!

    They are look fantastic (love the shoes), but #3 would be my choice for you. 🙂
    Best of luck and hope you have an awesome time! 🙂

    I am sending your article to Ginny Baldridge to take a look at. She does fashion professionally. Maybe she would have an idea not only which outfit she likes but stage presentation.#3 is slimming for the camera; #4 lets people focus on you rather than the dress but the dress is really professional looking for a budding author! Best wishes, looking forward to the presentation.

    #4. The necklace and shoes pop. Classic and shapely. You’ll be on stage and you want people to listen to what you’re saying not be diverted by your wardrobe. The other 3 are cute but better suited for a garden party or graduation party.

    I am impressed you were able to find FOUR DRESSES that look so great on you, Kelly! (Teach me your ways…) Being a practical gal, I would go with #4 for its versatility. #3 is a very close second, though.

      4 does have hella versatility, which gives it some bonus points. And I was shocked I found four dresses as well! That never happens. And the secret of my ways is: Nordstrom Rack (dresses 1 and 3), Gap (dress 2) and Limited (dress 4). Go figure.

    #1 for a fun, out-there image; #4 if you’re aiming to look sophisticated and/or demure. The baby blue is very pretty, but unless you’re magic, you are guaranteed to drip something on it sooner or later … and the flowers render the necklace invisible.

    I love number one! & OMG I need that disclaimer every time I ask someone for their opinion because I usually don’t take advice unless it matches what I had in mine either lmao

  7. Catherine

    First off, you look fantastic in all of them! I LOVE #2 and second choice would be #4. I can’t wait to see whatever fabulous-ness you choose in person!!!

    • Kelly Suellentrop

      Thank you! I’ve heard that from multiple people (that stripes are in…not that I look great in them. But I will take the compliment!)

    Offering my “used to be a pr lady and taught people how to dress for the camera” advice. Keep it simple, so the floral, though it looks GREAT on you, is out. White is too “hot” looking (it’s distracting as there is such a large amount of a reflective material–not that you’re large). Stripes are dangerous. They can vibrate on camera. They look awesome on you, but the viewer will have a hard time with them. I’d wear that to something public that won’t be telecast. That leaves us with number 4, which would be my number one for TV. The color is flattering, but not distracting and the necklace brings the focus to your face.

    These all look really great!! I love those shoes, BTW! I really like the stripes, but it really depends on what kind of look. Stripes is still contemporary, but it pops with the color. #2 and #4 are nice but seem forgettable to me. #3 is my 2nd favorite, because it’s more flashy in design, but I really feel like your personality will offer all the flashy you need 😉

    Have fun – whatever you choose will be great!! It’s honestly most important that you FEEL great in it.

  10. Honour

    I agree with the or lady….but buy the floral too because you look awesome in it!

  11. Shelly

    Yep, I concur with ‘used to be a pr lady’ and ‘Honour’— #4 for your show, but get the floral for you!

  12. adequatelyawkward

    I love me some stripes… buuuut, I LOVE #3!! Lookin good, momma! I wish I had your figure! Working up to it! I can’t wait to read more posts on your blog!

    • Kelly Suellentrop

      Aw, you are sweet. And the secret to my figure is called “spanx” 🙂 But thanks. I felt really good in all four dresses, and that was the best thing. I’d love to see you back in the comment section!

      • adequatelyawkward

        Self confidence is awesome! & it’s a hard thing to find these days 🙂 I use spanx also 😉 You’re one awesome mom 🙂 I hope you have a wonderful day! ☺️

I'm Listening...Really.
