Would you wear a ball dress 2 years in a row?

Posted by   + Show Post

 DHs ball is next weekend. I am going shopping tonight (last minute I know) and hope to find something. I do have the dress I wore last year as a back up but you know, I really don't want to do that. So would you wear it if you had to?

Quoting DvlDogWfe:

If you have the chance to head to San Diego, there is a dress shop called "Night on the Town". I bought two dresses from there, very nice dresses and nicely priced as well. If wearing the same dress was my only option, I would do it.

 Hmm thanks. I have no time for San Diego BUT we are going to my sisters this week in 29 Palms so I fgure if I don't find anything tonight I may stop in Palm Springs and take a look around there.

Now that I've seen it, I'd def. wear it again.  It's simple and black.  even in pics it won't be obvious you're wearing the same dress.

Oh forgot to add that I hope you find a dress! Good luck! Show us a picture of it please!?

 I sure will! This is the picture of the dress I have now that I would wear again if I don't find something in 8 days lol

I probably would.  Why not.  Your husband will be wearing a repeat outfit. LOL  You can just change it up a little with your hair & accessories to make the pictures look different.   We haven't been to a ball since 2009 but I borrowed one from a friend of mine.  It was so pretty  wish I could have kept it and worn it again.  lol

I'm in that same boat as you. My husband doesn't like to go to them either.

 It's a really pretty dress :)

Just accessorize it differently if you feel like people might notice.  I saw the dress and immediately thought about accessorizing it with pearls; it would change the entire look.  Depending on how low the back is cut, you could also add a bolero to change the look, too.
