A Date with a Cocktail Dress

For the first time since my wedding, I am in need of a formal dress for a work related occasion. To be more pacific a cocktail dress for a holiday party at a local casino. Before I forget the hard part, I am very much a fluffy. So here is what I was thinking……

"Marilyn" Ruched Convertible Dress $215
Though I fear this piece would not look near as hot on me as the model.

Goddess Plus Size Maxi Dress $58
Perhaps too basic?

Sicilia Dress - $168
This is my favorite. Just the right amount of sexy, classic black and right below the knee. A little pricey for this mom’s budget though. STRONGLY considering.

Luna Gown - $275
This one plays a very close second though I worry that the no sleeves will be a mistake in the Iowa winter. I love the flowing bottom, very princess like.

Flared sleeve wrap dress - $69.95
Very nice little black dress. Well priced. I am in love with the sleeves, though I worry about the length not seeing this one on a model.
