Help Me Pick an Outfit?

November 29 2012 | CeCe Olisa

It’s that time of year again where you help me choose an outfit for my office holiday party.

Last year, I did the survey on twitter and the dress you suggested I wear was a huge hit, so let’s do it again! This year, I’m building my outfit around a vintage bag and sexy/comfy shoes. I’ve narrowed my choices down to these three dresses and these two coats from SimplyBe.com (the names and descriptions are below). Other than the faux fur coat, which would be a total splurge, everything I’m looking at is under $100.

So, chime in and tell me…. which pieces would you choose for an office holiday party?

    From these pictures alone, I’m going to say the capelet coat and the Galactic print dress. The lace dress looks too casual. The peplum illusion dress would be great for a night party/cocktail dress, but might be a bit much for a daytime office party. If your party is at night and in a fancy atmosphere (hotel ballroom, for example), I’d say the peplum, but if it’s a daytime party at work, then the galactic print. 🙂

    The WOW peplum dress def lives up to its name. I’d go with that. But I agree about it not matching the shoes… I’d do the the dress over the shoes though. =)

      And def the fur coat if you can swing it. But I’d check the consignment and thrift stores first. Or H&M. Seems like I’ve seen many comparable looks (even for plus girls like me) for a lot less.

    While the peplum dress is beautiful, I’d worry about stretch metallic emphasizing the tummy area. Any shapewear seams will show also. You can see the model’s belly button .

    I like the galactic print coutout dress with the capelet trench coat for the holiday party. It will go with the shoes. The peplum dress is pretty nice though.
