    I feel kind of silly asking this question, but I know you all give some honest opinions & advice.

    One of my College buddies are getting married in September & I needed to buy a new dress for the occasion since I've lost so much weight. I am not part of the wedding, but I still want to look good for it. I'll be the first to admit, I'm not into wearing dresses very often at all & have no clue if the dress is appropriate for the occasion. But....I haven't seen some of my college friends for several years & I want to show it off a bit.:brow I am actually betting that a few people won't even recognize me since I've changed so much with in the past year.

    Anyway, I ordered a dress online & I just got it last night. I've attached a photo of me wearing it & I need you all to tell me if it's too dressy for the occasion or if it's not a good choice for me. Be brutally honest with me....I don't want to look a whore in church or look like an old fuddy duddy!:lol These pictures are not the best quality, but you can get the jist of it....

    Yeah, I agree. My hair will be down that night. It just happened to be pulled up when I tried on the dress & wasn't wearing much makeup either.

    Thanks for your opinions! I appreciate it!

    oh...btw, the dress is burgandy lace with a beige underlay.:D I'd LOVE it if it was bright red!

    Ryan, you've seen me with my hair down in my other pictures. I'll try it on again tomorrow while my hair is down (I would right now, but it's already up & don't feel like messing with it!:D).

    Thanks again...I'm sure it will be a blast!:D

    It looks decent. Not too showing of anything and very contemporary.

    Ok, I took some pics tonight with my hair down. I think I look better with it down even though it would be easier to deal with later on in the evening if it was up. The price one makes to look beautiful!:lol

    Anyway, here ya go. Sorry for the quality of some of the pic's...the lighting is horrible in my apartment.

    Thanks Ryan. The house isn't too bad for an apartment...pretty comfy for me.

    I don't think I look that different than my "old" pictures. Most of the pictures in the picture gallery thread are fairly recent. I guess somedays are better photo days than others!;)

    Funny, you ask that! Last night was the wedding & it was great! The reception got a bit boring towards the end of the night, but that's to be expected on a Friday night. I seen several old college buddies that I haven't seen in several years & not many even recognized me! I guess I've changed THAT much through out the years. Hell, I hadn't seen the Groom in over a year & he had to do the double take!:lol Overall it was great...even though I was the only one there who was single. Several of my girl friends were trying to hook me up with some of the groomsmen, but I wasn't interested in them.

    Here's a couple pic's that my friend took of me right before we left my place....

    Here's more of a goofy angle...we were in pretty silly moods yesterday!
