I need your help more than ever before. This is an impassioned plea-- please, help me. Help me not really screw up this whole thing I have going on by wearing the wrong thing. Dig into your fashion sense reserves and tell me: if I see Perfect tomorrow for the first time since the first week of July the day at the Mills when everything was wonky in person, what do I wear?
Here are the choices and my thinking behind them:
In one corner, I have a short and form-fitting teal cotton t-shirt dress that's made a little more casual by its pockets. I cinch it at the waist with a braided gold belt to give me visible kickin' curves. I finish it off with a pair of purple leather gladiator-inspired thong sandals, a nice contrast with the teal that says, "hey, I'm comfy but cute." (Bending in this outfit is ill-advised. It's got a relatively modest scoop-neck and adorable cap sleeves, though, so it balances the legs and skin there shown.)
I like to think that this is the outfit that would make Perfect kick himself for letting me go. The hemline is short enough to show my super-recently tanned and toned legs from all the beaching and running I've been doing, and it hugs my ass, which he knows quite well. I figure if I can get thoughts and pulse racing, it probably wouldn't hurt my cause.
In the other corner, the opponent is a pair of super-short striped navy shorts (again, showing off the legs), the same purple glads, and a tight black V-neck t-shirt with a gold stylized guitar detail on it. And I'd totally be wearing a push-up bra, yes. The dark colors show off my tan well, and it's a more laid-back outfit that basically says, "hey, I wasn't really planning on seeing you, but I still manage to look good."
Seeing as one of Perfect's best and oldest girl friends will be with him, and she's the five-foot-nine, size 2 exotic model-y looking type who looks great and all-American classic in trademark cut-offs and a tank, I was thinking I'll be dressing as much for her impression of me as I will be for Perfect's. I don't want her to think I'm trying too hard, but I do want her to tell him I'm cute as they drive back home. So do I try to dress more her style with the t and shorts, or do I go for the knock-out and wear the dress?
As for hair, I'm running a few small braids around my hair-line and pinning them back, boho-style, leaving the rest of it casually tousled. Make-up I'm leaving basic: foundation, hint of blush, mascara, and lip balm. I've got a great golden glow going on from the beach-- I figure "fresh" is the way to go.
Please, any opinions, tips, hints, or advice would be greatly appreciated with this. I know that if I do get to see him while he's in town tomorrow, this meeting could make or break the storyline of Perfect and I.
