Help dress me!

Every year I attend a charity auction to raise money for the scholarship fund at my school. I have done the LBD in all of its infinite variations and want to do something different this year. I have two outfit ideas and was hoping to get some feedback from my fashionable readers. POLYVORE, ACTIVATE!

These two outfits are based around articles of clothing I already have or could easily acquire. I have no interest in shelling out a ton of money anymore for a one-night event — remember the boundless closet of LBDs?

This first outfit centers around some black, studded booties and a cool whale necklace I already own (similar to, though not exactly like the pictures) and a burgundy midi skirt I got at Goodwill the other day for $1.99. The peplum top is from Target and is on sale for $17.

 

Auction Outfit #1

 

This second outfit is what I am currently leaning toward, though it requires me to procure more items than the first. It is based around a striped blazer I love. Coral and teal are a color combo fave of mine, and gold accents it well. I would need to get all three items to pull the outfit off; Target carries the dress, and I am sure Goodwill has suitable accessories, though I am at a loss as to where to find the gold sandals.

Auction Outfit #2

 

Thoughts? Where do you weight in?

  1. Tchaa! I’D wear that striped blazer with the FIRST outfit! That peplum top is so flattering and the striped blazer would edgify it. I’d wear it with a hammered black or silver collar necklace.

  2. I can really see the first outfit as an alternate to the ubiquitous LBD, but I wouldn’t do what two other people have suggested and put the striped blazer with a peplum top. It hides the peplum completely. Unless you plan to take the blazer off and sling it over your shoulder, which would look cool, try a different black top (lacy, maybe?) with that first outfit.
