We have a wedding to attend on Sunday. Since I learned of the couple’s engagement, my outfit was a no-brainer. However, due to recent body changes, and the groom informing us two days ago that he wants to include us in wedding photos, I panicked and ordered a few back-up dress options. This might have been overkill, because photo #3 looks like the right size, even though I know that it fits differently.

I also splurged on a pair of stiletto heels, which I do and do not “need”:
*need because I don’t have a pair of black dressy closed toe shoes. I have a pair of strappy Mary Janes (#4) that could work, but they don’t have an elegant vibe. Maybe that’s just the disconnect between what I want to wear vs what I should wear speaking; and
*do not need, because their cost-per-wear would be high, and I would only wear them at weddings/celebrations. I just sent back footwear and garments that don’t fit my lifestyle, so it feels odd to be considering these. The stilettos would get significantly less wear than my recent returns, but they also fit a wardrobe niche.

Not pictured is a Theory tux blazer (out for delivery today) that I would consider pairing with slim wool pants and black shoes. It wouldn’t be as dressy, but it would be comfortable. I’m leaning toward the trench dress I already own, even though I’ll have to be mindful of how I move.

ETA: #2 is too big now but won’t be in the next while, while #3 fits well now but will soon be too small. Photo #6 is arriving today but will probably be too small.
