I’m in a mild panic searching down spanx pantyhose for tomorrow night, and for a topper for the ball gown (pictured).

Should I just wear my regular old black Trina Turk military coat and coat check it immediately? Or spring for this little faux fur number? It’s not my usual color scheme but I think it would look good with red. The black version is sold out in my size. I will have no time to shop tomorrow so whatever I find today is it, or I make do from my closet.

I do have long gloves I can wear with this. I know I have long black ones. I might have long white ones but I don’t know if that would go or not. I’m so not used to this formalwear thing!

What do you think?

ETA: I found a black one and a white one too... I think the white with the red is a little too Mrs Claus for me.

I think the tan one looks a little richer, but the black is more versatile and “me.”
