Can't find anything to write about? Use your poor readers to help you with your retail therapy!

OK, so I will be sworn in as the Chair of the State Public Affairs Committee for the Junior League at the end of the month. (*yikes*) In order to feel more confident and presidential, I am looking to acquire the Most Killer Outfit of All Time. [Important Note: I will - no matter what! - get my hair cut and colored, my brows waxed, and a mani/pedi prior to leaving for Sacramento. Some things are just not negotiable.]

The candidates are:
This dress from QVC, in green. I will wear it with a cream linen jacket when I am doing "official" things and this is pretty critical because it will be HOT in Sacramento and I hate being sweaty. (Really, really hate the sweat...probably goes a long way to explaining my antipathy for exercise.)
This dress from Jessica London, also in green.
This blouse with a cream linen skirt or trousers. (Probably not trousers because they all look like clown pants on me...just another gift with purchase of having an unproportionally large stomach and normal sized legs.)

Please vote in the comments.

I like the top (#3) but not with that fabric hanging off of it. I liked dress #1 way above Dress #2 because of the funky polo type color on #2 and the bow. And the color of #1 is better, tho I like the purple of #1 best of all.

That didn't help at ALL did it?!

Jessica London dress, hands down!

Second choice would be the blouse with cream trousers.

Another vote for Jessica London, though the other dress would be my second choice. I didn't care for the green color very much, but it could just be the monitor on my laptop.

Hi Denise

I'd definitely go with Dress #1 - I like it soo much I'm thinking of ordering it for myself.

Knock 'em dead!

I like number one for business - i think the classic lines will be more versatile than #2. I love that dress, but it says "party" to me.

I second Hilly.

I like the black dress and cream jacket. ALthough, it would be helpful to see the cream jacket. ;-)

I'm kinda new here....

I like the 1st dress best (from QVC) - I agree with nell above - the green is a nicer shade.

2nd choice I would go with the blouse and cream on the bottom half - skirt if thats what you more confortable in.

Strange to see someone else looking for outfit choice.
I have seen a dress I love for my school reunion but am not sure what accessories (mainly bag) would go....

take care

I definitely love dress #1! I like two two but not the color,lol.

I vote for Jessica London, if only because I DO NOT think you should wear linen! It wrinkles so easily. The jacket might be okay, but PLEASE do not wear a linen skirt. You sit down once, and you're a mess. If it's gonna be hot and sticky you want to look CRISP.

Just my 2 cents!!

I like #2, but I am a huge fan of V-neck. Scoop necks look bad on me.
