wanna guess the dress?


The year was 2012.
The gala would be chic.
The theme? Bal à Venise, Soirée Mascarade.
Diet was undertaken for a 6-week.

She tried, oh she tried to starve and exercise.
The problem? She cheated, oh she cheated a lot.
The choices were narrowing.
Time was running out.
Decisions had to be made.
The dress was finally bought.

What did she get?
Seriously, why is the lighting inside the changing rooms so great? Outside? Not so much!


Here were the choices:












Caveat: The camera doesn't do any of the dresses justice. And I'm not THIS fat!


Which one was it? Care to guess?

You look great in all ! But I'll say #5... And I love Emily on #1 wondering how much longer before you make up your mind :-)

I'm going with #5

She apparently started licking the walls after a while (see her in #5)

It must be the French thing...

 
At 4/16/12, 9:29 AM , Blogger Megan@MondayMorningMusings said...

Okay then, putting you down for #5 (you sound very sure).

And, and, and "you look great in all" doesn't help. Good thing I didn't go shopping with you, I woulda come home with a sizable wardrobe :)

I like #3, but I'm betting you went with #5 - we all like black best!

 
At 4/16/12, 10:24 AM , Blogger Megan@MondayMorningMusings said...

It is also possible that #5 is the one that photographed the best.

#5, not just because it is black but because of the cut and drape, I love the single shoulder strap and crossover. It is just elegant and would look lovely in any color.

 
At 4/16/12, 10:50 AM , Blogger Janiece said...

#5 is definitely the ONE.

And as a side note, #4 should die in a fire (she says while hoping desperately you didn't choose #4).

It's a Lauren, by Ralph Lauren. Not sure if it comes in different colors, didn't see any.

 
At 4/16/12, 11:12 AM , Blogger Megan@MondayMorningMusings said...

LOL

Heyyy, I recognize that purse!

#1 is too shiny, makes you look hip-py. You are not blind.
#4 is out of the question, you would never pick a white-ish dress. Floral print? Get out of town.
It's either #3 or #5, unless you listened to Emily (#2 screams Emily).

 
At 4/16/12, 11:30 AM , Blogger Megan@MondayMorningMusings said...

It's that damm camera, I tell you. As you know, I have no hips, no hips at all. Or butt. I also don't have a double-chin, sagging neck, or Popeye arms. Oh Gawd, shoot me now!

 
At 4/16/12, 12:22 PM , Blogger Karen said...

I pick 5 too. It looks stunning on you!

 
At 4/16/12, 3:41 PM , Blogger alienbody said...

Janiece is right! That dress has Gone With The Wind written all over it - as in, she done ripped the drapes off the wall and made herself a dress! Sorry...couldn't resist. I'm sure it was lovely in person. (not really)

 
At 4/16/12, 4:21 PM , Blogger Megan@MondayMorningMusings said...

Thank you for the kind words, darling :)

 
At 4/16/12, 4:27 PM , Blogger Megan@MondayMorningMusings said...

LOL. Alas, poor Tadashi Soji, I knew him Horatio: a fellow of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy!

 
At 4/16/12, 7:25 PM , Blogger Megan@MondayMorningMusings said...

Also... At least you didn't say Sound of Music. I'll take Scarlett O'Hara any day over a recovering nun's fashion sense.

 
At 4/16/12, 7:33 PM , Blogger Jeri said...

Ooh! Could be either 3 or 5. I really love both - either one is elegant and gorgeous - but for the sophisticated-hottie look you make #5 sing!

 
At 4/16/12, 7:43 PM , Blogger Megan@MondayMorningMusings said...

It is definitely one of these five options, that's all I'll say (for now).

 
At 4/16/12, 9:00 PM , Anonymous Zoelee said...

I think the colour of 1 really suits you, but no to the shine.

I'd have gone for 3 (unless the front is hideous), but let's say you went for 5.

 
At 4/16/12, 9:08 PM , Blogger Megan@MondayMorningMusings said...

Hey Zoelee, did you make it home safely? Can't wait to read about your San Francisco adventures.

Putting you down for a non-heartfelt 5, then :)

 
At 4/17/12, 1:20 AM , Blogger Elaine Griffin Designs said...

I really love numbers 3 and 5, so I hope it's one of them!

 
At 4/17/12, 4:01 AM , Blogger Hilary said...

#5! I love it on you... or #3 - that is a great dress too (#4 on the other hand....) and you are so pretty!!!!

 
At 4/17/12, 6:09 AM , Anonymous Emily said...

I have to be different... always. So I'm going to vote for every dress but #5. Ha!

 
At 4/17/12, 6:31 AM , Blogger karensomethingorother said...

I don't think you look fat at all! Seriously--I thought you looked wonderful in all those dresses, but I FREAK for number 1. It's so beautiful, and flattering on you, and totally suits the theme..in my mind.

Hey! Screw dieting, just do that hideous, terrible, "Thirty Day Shred" workout dvd that I've been doing. My knees have hurt for well over a month! Hooray! No, the point is, it's toned up my puffy bits.

 
At 4/17/12, 7:21 AM , Blogger Megan@MondayMorningMusings said...

Thanks Elaine. Something about dark colors, right? :)

 
At 4/17/12, 7:22 AM , Blogger Megan@MondayMorningMusings said...

Poor #4, it did not find fans in this crowd LOL (and thank you!!!!!)

 
At 4/17/12, 7:23 AM , Blogger Megan@MondayMorningMusings said...

LOL. I love that you are different :)

 
At 4/17/12, 7:28 AM , Blogger Megan@MondayMorningMusings said...

Thanks Karen. I should've seen that red number you were sporting for your 40th before this...

There are two ladies on BlogHer using the Jillian video who would concur with you. I'm into less draconian workouts, counting the days till the weather is hot enough to start swimming properly.

My favorite is #5 (not to be confused with Mambo #5), but my gut is telling me that you got #1 (which is also very cute).

 
At 4/17/12, 8:41 AM , Blogger Megan@MondayMorningMusings said...

Was your gut a little drunk when it said that? "Not that there's anything wrong with that"! On an unrelated note, I never like Chanel #5. Too... much for me.

 
At 4/17/12, 7:52 PM , Anonymous Susi said...

I want to go with number 3 even though number 5 got the over-whelming votes. I like both. But love the way #3 drapes.:)

 
At 4/17/12, 10:04 PM , Blogger Colleen said...

No.5
You look beautiful in that dress. Hope you picked #5.
#3 is not bad either. :)

 
At 4/17/12, 10:53 PM , Blogger Megan@MondayMorningMusings said...

You're the first to mention the draping. Good eye.

Thanks for playing Susi:) And stay tuned for the "big reveal"!

::taping mouth shut so I won't blurt the answer::

Very sweet of you to say, Colleen :)

Hi. Yes, back home & then seemed to suffer with Jet Lag for yonks! I have just blogged... I tried to e as positive a possible.. If anything it made me love LA more :)

 
At 4/18/12, 9:14 AM , Blogger Megan@MondayMorningMusings said...

Jet lag going that direction is the worst! Poor thing. Glad you're not blaming LA for it, it wants you to come back soon :)

Heading over to check out your recap...

 
At 4/18/12, 10:00 AM , Blogger Beckey said...

I'll say #5 because you look SMOKIN' in it!!

 
At 4/18/12, 10:48 AM , Blogger Megan@MondayMorningMusings said...

Smoking is something I do very well. Thanks Beckey :)

 
At 4/18/12, 12:24 PM , Blogger Nini Kahler said...

I'm going with dress #3 as my first choice, but dress #5 is my second choice. Hey, I can choose 2 dresses if I want to. lol!

Yes you can Virginia, yes you can :)

Thanks for playing darling. Be sure to come back Friday (better make it Saturday in case I don't get a chance to post right before the party).

Beautiful dresses,you look great I will guess number 3,I love the back :)

 
At 4/20/12, 8:33 AM , Blogger Megan@MondayMorningMusings said...

The dresses were all gorgeous, I'm afraid I didn't do them justice. Thanks for playing :)

I love the small child huddled in the corner of photos 1 and 5.

LOL. She always pops up in my photos, randomly. Wonder who she is.
